I'll take her. I need a new one, anyway. I know she'll spend all of your loot on me, so it's all good. Have her call me for a test drive.

So, another thing to consider- in peak season (March to October) the rate is per person, regardless of surfing abilities or participation. However, in the off season, they do a couples rate of only $5,000 for the couple, obviously a significant savings of $3,000

But, is the risk of off season flatness really worth saving a few grand? I had a monster year, money is not really much of an object. I'm not such a high roller that i would NOT notice $3K, but it's not going to put my mortgage payments in jeopardy either. and there is the whole "Birthday/Anniversary/Birthday" aspect to a May trip. And also, if I'm only going to Tavarua once (for now anyway) shouldn't i just nut up and pay full freight to be there in peak season with the best chance of epic perfection some or all of the trip?

I mean, I probably just answered my own question. But somebody did just ask about "non surfing spouse" pricing, so i figured it was useful info irregardless.

We took our honeymoon on Namotu. Went over to Tavarua for an afternoon. She won't be bored, there is plenty to do. Scuba diving, quick trip to neighboring islands, SUP and snorkeling... a week will go by really fast. Plenty of wife-friendly waves around too, if she wants to surf.

We went around Thanksgiving and there was still HH to overhead surf most days at certain spots.

Book it already!

She can go fish and on the way back have her tell the guy to swing by Cloudbreak so she can watch you surf or even film.

No ones mentioned tennis yet laugh Theres a tennis court there.

Also you can go to neighboring islands and check out the community.

Hammocks and cool wood beach chairs everywhere to read, draw, etc.

Dont talk up Nadi, where the airport is too much. Stay at a Deneru hotel, especially you two being New Yorkers.

The botanical garden north of Nadi is bitchin though.

One thing I missed was doing the river raft expedition on Nadi. If you have time Do It. I hear it is amazing.

Be prepared for a big bar bill, drinks arnt cheap.

Also bring plenty of cash to tip the boatmen at the end of your stay.

There is no better trip. Your wife will love it and make you go back. My wife and I went for our 10 year anniversary. She is begging me to go back. She loved it. She surfs a little. Our friends went with us and neither surf and said it was the best vacation ever.
