Oceania is made up of some of the most beautiful island nations in the world, comprising Australia and its neighbouring islands. Oceania draws visitors from all around the globe who come seeking tropical islands, deserted beaches, coral reefs, friendly locals and new and unique cities! It is only natural that such beautiful destinations are also home to some truly world-class resorts. Whether you are looking for a barefoot, beachside resort, a luxury city hotel or any type of luxury accommodation, you will certainly find it no matter where you decide to visit in Oceania. Today we’re sharing five resorts in Fiji, Australia, New Zealand and French Polynesia which are must visit’s during your time in Oceania!
NANUKU AUBERGE RESORT, FIJI
Nanuku Auberge Resort is a very exclusive resort, as is only right for one of the world’s most iconic tropical paradises. Truthfully, no matter where you stay in Fiji you will feel as if you’re spending your days and evenings in absolute heaven! Your Fijian holiday experience certainly jumps up a notch if you book one of the 18 rooms at the Nanuku Auberge Resort which is so incredible that it has even been credited with raising Fiji’s level of luxury resort hospitality overall, which is pretty impressive! If you ever make it for a stay you’ll enjoy intimate beach side rooms, outdoor massages and other spa activities, private beaches, and fine dining. I can’t think of a better place to spend a few days (or weeks) relaxing and watching some of the best sunsets in the world (which is something that Fiji is also famous for)!
LIZARD ISLAND RESORT, AUSTRALIA
It would not be right to write of the best resorts in Oceania if we didn’t talk about a hotel on the Great Barrier Reef, one of the most iconic and most popular tourist destinations in Oceania! Lizard Island Resort is as they say “like nowhere else”. This all-inclusive luxury retreat is the most northern resort on the GBR and is a luxury lodge of Australia, surrounded by pristine coral reef. Lizard Island hosts no more than 82 guests and offers guests the seclusion, privacy and natural beauty you have been dreaming of!
SKYCITY GRAND HOTEL AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND
If you’re looking for a true city resort, SKYCITY Auckland is as good a bet as any with facilities and services that are unparalleled in Auckland. The rooms at the SKYCITY Grand Hotel have been recently refurbished and you can also opt for hotels with a view across the stunning Waitemata harbour. This towering luxury hotel also has outstanding restaurants, including one at the top of the Sky Tower which overlooks all of beautiful Auckland! The hotel is also known for its casino and is one of the best Casino hotels in New Zealand, featuring over 1,700 gaming machines and over 100 tables, which will even rival some Vegas hotels! That means you can try your hand at poker, roulette, or even blackjack, which is said to be the most popular game among casino players. The hotel is an excellent, luxurious choice to base yourself to explore the North island and all Auckland has to offer.
THE BRANDO, FRENCH POLYNESIA
Like Fiji, French Polynesia is the epitome of picture perfect tropical paradise.The Brando is a unique luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private island of Tetiaroa – an atoll composed of a dozen small islands surrounding a sparkling lagoon 30 miles northeast of Tahiti. The hotel is named after the legendary actor, Marlon Brando who used to visit the region frequently. The Brando offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature. With access to the island by private plane, the resort features 35 villas on white-sand beaches frequented by sea turtles, manta rays and exotic birds. Whether you want to sip cocktails on a poolside bed, play tennis or go paddle boarding, or simply swim in some of the world’s most beautiful waters, you can do it all at The Brando without ever leaving the resort. The resort was designed to reflect Polynesian lifestyles and culture and staying there would be a once in a lifetime experience for many that they would never forget.
PARK HYATT SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
The Park Hyatt Sydney is one of the most luxurious hotels in Sydney. The hotel has the most incredible location right on the iconic Sydney Harbour, which is one of the world’s most beautiful harbours and is located between the Sydney Opera House which is a man-made wonder of the world and the Harbour Bridge. The hotel is modern and offers its guests intimate surrounds with architecture, art and design that reflect the Australian landscape. All of the rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows or balconies boasting an incredible and unbeatable view. The Park Hyatt Sydney is also famous for having one of the best rooftop pools in the world, a bright, open pool deck which overlooks the Harbour and Opera House!
