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
Enjoyed staying at this resort. Everything about the resort and its amenities is centred around relaxation. Great pool and safe beach. Excellent restaurants on site. Parts of the resort were however undergoing renovation during our stay. The resort is about an hours drive from Nandi which means you have to arrange transportation if you want to go off on excursions.
The facilities of the shangrila are wonderful such as a waterpark and many pools. It is made easy to access taxis and buses and the food is exceptional.

Though for all the names i remember all the staff down the pool lobby lagoon restaurant lagoon and the life guards were all a huge part in helping me and my family enjoy our stay.
very good location. like a big brother house, you have every thinks in the resort, wedding Venue, golf club, duty-free shops, The room is good but I think they're some of the staff need to improve their services or more training.
This is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy all the resort has to offer - swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, bikes, games room and more, or just relax on your balcony watching the waves roll in and the palm trees swaying in the breeze. The restaurants offer great food and the Fijians are so friendly and welcoming, they are happy to make your stay the best it can be. Visiting one of the local villages is really worthwhile also.
We stayed here for 10 days with our 3 kids. We had a family room but because of renovations we were offered two adjoining rooms which was even better! Our kids had an amazing time, there was so much for them to do. Kids club was awesome. Great restaurants to choose from. The staff were always very helpful and friendly. Our beds we beautifully decorated. They have a scuba diving centre on the resort and my husband did the shark dive. And there is a spa, which we used and thoroughly enjoyed!
