Allow us to paint a picture: You're surrounded by stunning turquoise waters on all sides, savoring a cheese pizza and a cocktail on a daybed open to the breezy ocean air. While this sounds like the stuff of literal dreams, it's actually a reality happening on planet earth right now. (And why aren't we all there?)
Yes, it's all going down at Cloud 9 in Fiji, the country's only two-level floating platform with a fully stocked bar and Italian wood-fired pizzeria, surrounded by endless blue water and Instagram-slaying views. Oh, and there's a roster of international DJs spinning, too.
It's "like pizza in heaven," as one Instragmmer succinctly put it.
This floating hotspot is located literally in the middle of the sea, surrounded by just water and reef. Cloud 9 is near the main island of Fiji, Viti Levu, and is in the Western Division; Nadi is the closest town. It sits amongst the waters of Vanua Malolo on Ro Ro Reef, about a 45-minute boat ride from tourist hub Port Denarau.
Wash down your pizzas — handmade by a Fijian chef, including veggie and gluten-free options — with your go-to cocktail of choice, local faves Fiji Gold or Fiji Bitter beers, or a concoction made with Fiji Rum Co rum.
The venue also features a surround-sound system throughout, sun decks, hanging chairs, and day beds. If you're wondering, you could throw an insane birthday party or destination wedding here too — so put that on the bucket list.
After lunch, let your food settle and then head right out for a parasailing, jet skiing, snorkeling, or paddle board jaunt. (Or try this before lunch, perhaps, if you plan to imbibe.)
Is that the world's most perfect day? Sigh. Dreams really do come true.
