The Best Accommodations on ‘Eua for Couples
Far from your conventional couples’ getaway in the South Pacific, ‘Eua is definitely an island for the adventurous. With very few tourists, especially outside of the whale season, the island is one that you can have all to yourselves. Or, at least it feels that way when you’re exploring its glorious golden-sand beaches and verdant rainforest. Some of the most romantic stays range from glamping to boutique guesthouses; so you can put images of luxury resorts behind you. This is ‘Eua: raw, natural and unapologetically beautiful.

1. Blue Water Retreat
The closest thing to a resort on ‘Eua, Blue Water Retreat offers a small selection of ocean-view ensuite bungalows. But for something utterly romantic, be sure to book one of their glamping tents. These elegant tents are set atop an elevated private deck and kitted out with tasteful furniture, truly setting the scene for a romantic getaway. Ferry/airport transfers are included in the accommodation rates, while whale watching, spearfishing and island tours, as well as creative buffet-style meals at the onsite restaurant, can all be organised with the resort for an effortless stay.
2. Talei’s Guesthouse
A well-presented guesthouse complex at the northern end of Angaha, Talei’s Guesthouse boasts six private units, as well as a restaurant and liquor store on-site. Food is at the fore of this affordable accommodation with breakfast included and one of the only restaurants on the island – who wants to be cooking all honeymoon?
