We had the absolute pleasure of visiting our Fijian family for the second time in January to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary (Our first visit to Turtle was for our tenth).
Our concerns (mine mostly) that we might not enjoy ourselves as much as the first time evaporated as the float plane landed and we saw the welcoming committe on the beach waving and holding cold drinks for us. As the engines died, we heard the singing ... goosebumps in the tropics! Two brave warriors carried me ashore, leaving me husband to wade after us ... and we were just in time for breakfast!
Our week melted into sun drenched days at one of the private beaches, laughter around the communal supper table, a romantic dinner on the floating dock, the wedding of our new friends (congrats G & M!), horse back riding at dawn, snorkling the reefs, singing on the mountain before dinner, being embraced into the community that is Turtle Island.
From a service point of view - just ask and it will be given. For Choc-aholics like us, fresh brownies every day in our fridge along with a bottle of champagne if the one we were working on was empty. The pristine white sand beaches were kept that way by a crew of hard working staff before we arrived at the beach. The food was delicious, scrumpious, extravigant (get the picture?) The staff are the heart of the Island - gentle, fun loving, delightful people to meet and befriend.
Turtle Island is the ultimate romantic vacation. To try to discribe the experience is impossible. To discover it for yourself is a dream come true!
