Congratulations on your decision to move to Fiji! As you embark on this exciting new chapter of your life, Find Your Feet Fiji can help prepare you for the rich culture and what living in ‘paradise’ really means for a contemporary Fiji lifestyle. Moving to Fiji is a chance to slow down, embrace a simpler way of life, and discover the true meaning of happiness. Whether you are relocating to Suva or Nadi we can support your move.
One of the first things you’ll notice when you relocate to Fiji is the warm and welcoming nature of the Fijian people. Known for their genuine smiles and friendly demeanour, they will make you feel right at home. Take the time to connect with your new neighbours, colleagues, and community members. Engage in conversations, learn the local greetings, and embrace the sense of camaraderie that permeates Fiji’s tight-knit communities. I am constantly told on my market tours how newcomers feel more at home after seeing how easy it is to communicate in the marketplace.
Living in Fiji means embracing a slower pace of life. Bid farewell to the hustle and bustle of the city and embrace the concept of “Fiji time.” Here, schedules are flexible, and people prioritise spending quality time with loved ones. Allow yourself to unwind and appreciate the simple pleasures of life, whether it’s watching a mesmerizing sunset, walking the seawall, or savouring a delicious meal with friends.
One of the greatest treasures of Fiji is its stunning natural beauty. Outside Suva and Nadi there are pristine beaches, turquoise waters, and lush green landscapes. Take advantage of the opportunity to explore the numerous hiking trails, go snorkeling in vibrant coral reefs, or simply relax on the beach and soak up the sun. The daily life when working in the city can be off-set by some magical weekends away. Find Your Feet Fiji can help decide on a shortlist of places to put on your To Do list by determining your budget and desired activities.
As you settle into your new home, it’s essential to familiarize yourself with Fijian customs and traditions. Respect the local culture by learning about their beliefs, participating in traditional ceremonies, and understanding the importance of family and community. Fijians place great value on relationships and interconnectedness, so take the time to build meaningful connections with your fellow residents.
Fiji offers a range of housing options to suit different preferences and budgets. Whether you choose to live in the capital city of Suva, the vibrant hub of Nadi, or one of the picturesque outer islands, you’ll find a variety of accommodation choices. With a tightly held housing market we can make it easier to understand the best options for safety and lifestyle with our Accommodation package.
While Fiji is known for its tropical paradise, it’s important to be mindful of the practical aspects of living on an island. Take the time to familiarize yourself with local services, healthcare facilities, and transportation options.
Lastly, embrace the flavours of Fijian cuisine. With an abundance of fresh tropical fruits, and unique dishes, your taste buds are in for a treat. Explore the local markets, try traditional Fijian delicacies, and don’t forget to sample the refreshing flavours of kava, a traditional Fijian beverage.
Moving to Fiji is an opportunity to embrace a simpler, more fulfilling way of life. Allow yourself to be captivated by the natural beauty, immerse yourself in the vibrant culture, and let the warmth of the Fijian people touch your heart. As you embark on this incredible journey, remember to be open-minded, embrace the island’s traditions, and cherish the serenity that comes with living in paradise.
