Babymoons are the ideal way for parents-to-be to take a break from the hectic schedule of daily life.
Great Britain’s Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle are due to have their first child next spring, and are as deserving as any for some much needed rest and relaxation.
And midway through a 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, the royal couple checked in to the luxurious, ultra-private Vatuvara Private Islands Resort in Fiji for a secluded getaway.
Situated on Kaibu, part of the Northern Lau island group in Fiji, the island is one of many snapped up by billionaires looking for a place for peace and privacy.
James Jannard, the founder of California-based sports and lifestyle equipment manufacturers Oakley before selling it for over US$2 billion in 2007, bought four islands in the South Pacific in 2009, and spent five years transforming the villas on Kaibu into an exclusive luxury resort.
Forbes called the island resort “one of the world’s most beautiful places.”
Vatuvara describes itself as “conscientious luxury to the discerning traveller” and supports the revival and protection of the oceans and marine life around the Northern Lau island group through the Vatuvara Foundation, which tries to counter the effects of climate change and support the local coastal communities worst affected by it.

It was confirmed by Fiji’s tourism Minister Faiyaz Koya that the Duke and Duchess spent the night at Vatuvara Private Islands Resort before they departed for Tonga on the 10th day their 16-day tour, that also took in New Zealand, Australia and Tonga.
Accessible only by a private Twin Otter aircraft, the couple were guaranteed complete privacy at the adult-only resort when they took a day out of their packed schedule to enjoy a little relaxation.
The 800-acre island offers only three all-inclusive villas, all of which come with private infinity pools and hot tubs.
The Vatu and Saku villas additionally offer private in-villa massage, yoga and spa facilities.
Markle is an avid yoga fan, and we can imagine that after a week of royal appointments, sunrise yoga on a private beach was a welcome respite.
While at the resort, the royal couple could have opted to indulge in healthy dishes at the two on-site restaurants, which use produce from the organic gardens.
Fresh fish and seafood also feature heavily on the menus, which reflects both international and Fijian cuisine.
With a full roster of activities, including excursions to the neighbouring uninhabited private Vatuvara island, a four-hole organic-certified golf course, stand-up paddleboarding, scuba, diving and snorkelling, there will also have been no shortage of things to keep the royal couple busy.
