Six Senses Fiji

Malolo Island, Fiji

It’s a rare indulgence that feels altruistic. And Six Senses Fiji, which opened in April, is definitely indulgent: guests can lounge on white-sand beaches, enjoy heated lava-shell massages and 24-karat-gold-leaf facials and also explore reefs under crystal-clear Pacific waters, with room rates starting at about $940 per night. But the resort is also committed to keeping Fiji pristine. Its facilities are 100% solar-powered, and its food waste fertilizes a working farm, which grows ingredients for meals prepared by private chefs. Management also prioritizes hiring Fijian tourism students, and rooms are stocked with goods made by women in isolated communities via an NGO program to help them achieve financial self-sufficiency. Most guests choose to arrive by speedboat or helicopter, since the resort is on Malolo Island, which is 20 miles off the coast of Fiji. For those who really want to make an entrance, there’s also an option to skydive. —Eli Meixler
