Bucketlisting: Cloud 9, Fiji


Welcome to the third edition of your favourite post of the week: Bucketlisting! Today, I’m taking you to a place that has been on my radar for a while.  Here’s why: it’s far enough so you feel like you’re on holiday—but close enough that you don’t have to cope with jet lag!

Apart from the totally instagrammable jaw-dropping crystal clear water, visiting a place called Cloud 9 is well and truly on my radar. Cloud 9 is Fiji’s only two level floating lounge bar and restaurant. This floating paradise is located literally in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by nothing but turquoise blue water, coral reef and the horizon! Um, yes please!

The good news is it’s only a 40-45min boat ride from Port Denarau, and a super fast 10 min speed boat ride from Musket Cove Resort, Lomani Resort & Plantation Resort.

It has just about everything you could ever need. There’s a DJ on the decks, the other kind of deck (sun decks) and day beds to chillax on, all while you enjoy a tipple over some Italian Wood Fire Pizzeria and soak up that 360-degree view of the ocean. Where do I sign? MC
