VOGUE | Inside the Private Island Resort Where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Stayed in Fiji

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s 16-day tour of Australia, Tonga, New Zealand, and Fiji is jam-packed with engagements (76, to be exact). But in the middle of it all, the couple managed to sneak in a luxurious night to themselves.

According to multiple sources, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent an enchanted evening at Vatuvara Private Islands resort. The 800-acre property, which can only be accessed by private plane, has just three over-the-top villas. Its “flagship” home, called the Delana Villa, has an infinity pool, a private beach, an indoor massage area, and its own dining gazebo, all overlooking the South Pacific.

The royal couple could also dine at one of Vatuvara’s gourmet restaurants, which source fruit and vegetables from the island’s organic farms and seafood out of its crystal-blue waters. Soon, the resort will also produce its own virgin coconut oil and ocean salt.

It’s unlikely that Harry and Meghan had much time for activities, as they were off to Tonga the next morning. But, perhaps they had enough time to sneak in a round at the island’s organic golf course, picnic on a nearby deserted island, or try out a gourmet cooking class. Each villa also comes with its own yoga mats—perfect for the duchess, a noted yogi.

But the resort isn’t just all infinity pools, ocean views, and five-star amenities: It also has its own foundation, which seeks to protect marine life and landscape of the Northern Lau Islands. Sounds like just the place for a royal couple looking to get away from it all, and still do a bit of good.
