Located on a private island connected to mainland Fiji by a causeway, Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort & Spa is surrounded by 109 acres of lush grassland studded with coconut palms and frangipani trees overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The resort has a simple Hawaiian-style design, enhanced by earth tones, hand-carved Fijian wood paneling and traditional tapa cloth decor. With 442 rooms, three pools, six restaurants, a sea sports center and a spa, you can get your Fijian fix at this family-friendly resort without having to leave the grounds.
Bed and Bath
In comparison to the stylish mosaic-tiled and wood-paneled public spaces, guestroom interiors are fuss-free, with modern wooden furnishing, bamboo bedframes, earth-tone lounge chairs and large balconies. All offer panoramic sea views. Bathrooms blend in seamlessly, with sandy brown tiles, walk-in showers and panel windows that open up to the Pacific.
At the resort’s spa, the six treatment rooms are tastefully designed and kitted out with ornate doors, wooden carvings, extra-high ceilings, outdoor showers and bathtubs, and even double beds facing the ocean (for the exclusive Dusk Till Dawn spa package.) Adventure seekers will be thrilled with the array of activities on offer at the resort’s water sports center, from snorkeling to mangrove kayaking tours and parasailing. As part of the resort’s conservation efforts, the marine center organizes activities to educate children about the environment. Each of the six restaurants at the resort specializes in a different cuisine. Try Takali Terrace for authentic Asian seafood, or the Golden Cowrie Restaurant for traditional Italian. To sample true Fijian flavors, the weekly Fijian magiti at the Marau Village gives you the chance to try local food cooked in a lovo (traditional underground oven) and watch a meke dance performances.
How to Get There
Beautiful, nice and clean resort, very friendly staff special shout out to Nanise and Yaten !!! Thank you to the entire team for an amazing experience???? the food and entire stay was worth every $$ spent. On my list to go back for sure !!!!
What a beautiful location, beautiful island and beautiful people. A long way to travel from the UK but definitely worth it.
As it was a special occasion we made the decision to upgrade to a suite for our 10 night stay (was definitely worth it for the extra space in the room, and 2 showers). Our stay was made special by 4 very special members of staff Mesu (reception), Jonny (service), Mary (service) and Inia (Barman). These guys made us feel so welcome and made the holiday very memorable indeed.
It is for these guys i am sorry i am unable to give 5 stars and was all down to the way we were treated (by the male manager) on the last evening after checking out. Our transfer was booked to collect us @ 6pm. Happy hour (canapes and drinks) was between 5pm and 6pm. We were unsure if we would be eligible as we had technically checked out but as nothing was booked against a room and so thought it might not have been an issue. Instead of telling us directly we could clearly see the manager pointing us out and telling staff not to serve us. When confronted his excuse was only enough was made for the guests checked in... he had however just offered the canapes to some other guests who had told him the were staying in another hotel in the resort... As you can imagine he was quite embarrassed (as were we) and we then had some canapes suspiciously delivered, by this time for me it was too little too late.
Amazing holiday and we have tried not to let this small hiccup spoil what was otherwise a fantastic trip!
I have been to The Fijian many times for vacation and this is the first time to stay for a workshop. The staff were very accommodating and attentive. We used the Davui Hall which was big enough for our workshop of about 30 participants we had morning and afternoon, lunch and dinner included in our package. The rooms on the Lagoon wing were lovely and we had a good nights rest. If you are thinking of a workshop this is an ideal place with friendly and helpful staff. Room rate was inclusive of breakfast.
