Castaway Island Resort has a reputation for getting it right for both weddings and holidays. With great reviews, it is clearly loved by all who have been there. Situated on its own private tropical island in Fiji, within a crystal clear blue sea 30 km from Nadi, this intimate resort has only 66 Bures so you and your wedding party will quickly become part of the family and the staff will soon be calling you by your name.

You will be housed in your own stand-alone traditional Bure (built with traditional grass roof and natural timbers) but you can choose from a range of sites - beachfront, ocean view or nestled in the tropical gardens. All Bures have luxury fittings and interiors where you can relax and enjoy the clean comfortable surroundings.

In fact Castaway Island Resort is so great that it keeps winning awards, the latest being one of the Luxury Travel Magazine's Best Overseas Family Holiday category and runner up in the Best Overseas Resort category. They are also the recipient of such accolades as TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice award and Top 10 Resorts for Families.

If either party were previously married, a copy of the divorce papers or death certificate of the former spouse must also be presented. If either party was married within the last five years, a Certificate of Single Status may be required and you are advised to check well prior to your intended arrival date in this regard.
2. The second part is a formal ceremony to be held on Castaway. Usually the ceremony takes place prior to sunset on our white sand beach. The minister or celebrant will be available prior to the wedding to discuss the wording to be used in the ceremony.
