Budget, Backpackers, Homestays, Islands, Resorts & Hotels
From a village homestay to 5 star and beyond, if it's in Fiji and you can stay there we'll have it. Well, we're attempting to add a write up on each one, but it's a mission for sure as there are so many places to stay in Fiji. However just because the name of a resort or hotel is listed it doesn't mean we'll always write a review on it. Sometimes they're just not worth it. Click on the photo or heading for a list of accommodation in that particular area.
Mostly mid priced and super close to the airport. Fiji Gateway (ex Raffles) & Tokatoka you can even walk to. All offer free transfers. Trans International has big rooms and pretty cheap.
30 mins from the airport, Denarau abounds with 5 star hotels and resorts, with little in the way of budget accommodation here! However, the location next to the Marina for tours is excellent. Pity the beach is not very nice.
Wailoaloa Beach is great for those on a budget who want to be on a beach, only 20mins from the airport. The beach is ok, no good for snorkelling, sand is soft. It's a nice long beach good for walks or the morning jog.
Vuda / Lautoka Accommodation
Vuda is good value & only 20mins from the airport. Not much in the way of nice beaches. The two most popular resorts are First Landing & Anchorage. Check out Orchid Fiji for something different. Lautoka is a bit like Nadi town, busy and smelly.
45 mins from the airport, Natadola Beach is THE best beach to stay on. Stunning white sand, clear blue water, just perfect. Better than most Coral Coast places. Unfortunately accommodation here isn't so cheap.
Spanning a distance of over 100k down to Pacific Harbour it can take 1 to 2 hours from the airport. Ranging from budget homestay to the biggie's like Outrigger, Naviti, Warwick, Hideaway etc. Beaches are pretty good, not as good as the islands though.
3 hour drive from Nadi airport. Here you'll find the stunningly restored Grand Pacific Hotel, what a beaut. Lots of cheap accommodation, plenty to choose from right in the middle of town. For peace and quiet go out to Raintree Lodge.
Nananu-i-Ra island is Fiji's best kept secret, well away from commercial tourism, you'll find bargain accommodation with some of Fiji's best diving around here. Good beaches with soft white sand. You'll also find the high end resorts up here too.
Quick to get to on the big cat at around 30min from Port Denarau. Some islands include, Beachcomber, Bounty, Castaway, Malolo, Mana, Plantation, Musket Cove & Treasure. Budget to high end, its all here. Stunning beaches & fantastic snorkelling.
Stunning, stunning and more stunning. Best beaches, best snorkelling, best water in Fiji. Can take a looooong time to get to some of these places though, up to 5 hours of pretty boring boat ride. Budget backpackers, mid range and high end resorts abound.
About 4 hours from Nadi airport either way round the island then a boat ride.
Taking a guided tour to a village gives you some small insight into how the local people live, but until you become a part of their family (if only for a few days) you can never really get an understanding of what daily life is really like.
Heaps to choose from all over Fiji, but probably the best ones are on the islands. Easy to get to with an island hopping Bula Pass or on the big cat. Some truly fantastic locations.
