The recent official update from Tourism Fiji and the High Commission of India, Fiji, states that the island nation has reopened to travellers from India, provided they are full-vaccinated (children under 18 can travel with a vaccinated adult) and arrive with a negative RT-PCR report within two days of departure or a rapid test taken within 24 hours of departure, a pre-paid itinerary, and proof of vaccination.

The official website of the Ministry of Commerce, Trade, Tourism and Transport here adds that a three-night pre-paid accommodation proof at a Care Fiji Commitment (CFC) certified property, along with transportation as well as travel insurance and proof of having stayed in a travel partner country for 14 consecutive days are mandatory. Take a test on the second day of arrival, post which they are free to explore the island as a whole.
