If summer rays are starting to fuel your wanderlust, might we suggest Fiji as your next vacation spot? No, not for the pristine beaches or natural beauty, but because of this ultra-luxe, two-level bar. That floats. In the middle of the ocean. Aptly dubbed Cloud9, it may be water-bound, but the experience is taking tropical boozing to new heights.
A sundeck replete with plush lounges and shady enclaves plays host to a fully-stocked bar with top-shelf liquors and local Fijian beers. If that's not enough, there's a DJ on staff to take things up a notch for you and up to 100 of your closest friends. Hungry? Cloud9 is serving up wood-fired pizza and other bites available for purchase.
But if too much R&R leaves you restless, you can book a Jet Ski, snorkeling, or parasailing excursion to tire you out and prepare you for more drinks in the sun. Just 45 minutes off the coast of Port Denaru, Cloud9 looks like a little slice of paradise that has us ready to hop a plane and never look back.
