Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Sofitel Fiji Resort And Spa. Denarau Island, Fiji
Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa on Denarau Island Fiji is almost a single destination in itself, offering as it does, something for everyone. There is a uniqueness about this place and it’s probably best summed up by the greeting of “Bula – Bonjour” from staff when welcoming guests to the resort.  There is no doubt that you are in Fiji with all its natural warmth and friendliness, but from the moment you step into the resort lobby you can’t help but be impressed by the mixing in of French elegance and ambience; there is a definite French Provincial influence and it adds something very pleasant to the Fiji Resort experience.The lobby lounge is very welcoming and once you have settled in it’s a great spot to return to for a quiet read or a good cup of coffee. This level also houses  the shopping arcade and the La Parsienne Cafe and the resort shops.  Pass down the wide stairs from the lobby lounge (or take the lift) to the ground floor and you enter the heart of the resort – restaurants, bars, extensive Lilly ponds, the Sofitel's enormous spectacular lagoon swimming pool, the full-service day spa, more on-site shopping, Waitui Beach Club out front of the Adults-Only accommodation wings and the spectacular new Niu Kids Beach Club and a water sports centre between the beach and the "Family" accommodation wings. All this set in park-like sweeping lawns and tropical gardens bordering the beach. This whole area is welcoming during the day and especially beautiful at night.

A $50 million dollar renovation of the whole resort is now complete which has seen the entire resort totally upgraded including the rooms, and a number of new elements have been added including a Night Club, Kids Beach Club, water cannons and jets to the main family pool, a rum bar on the beach, a fine-dining adults-only poolside dinner experience in Waitui, a Fiji Airways on-resort check-in area, a new interactive buffet restaurant with no less than 6 live kitchens, a Teen Zone (complete with arcade-style ames) and a brand new Hair and Nail Salon. A new, complimentary wifi facility is now operating throughout the resort's public areas including all of the conference and event venues, the lobby, restaurants, bar and poolside areas.

Dining options at Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa are now nothing short of amazing, headlined by 300-seat Bazaar Kitchen & Bar with its 6 interactive live cooking stations in the evening offering the options of Fijian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Italian and American Grill as well as a beautiful dessert station.  The main breakfast buffet is also served at Bazaar Kitchen and available to all guests.  Continental breakfast is available at the Journal Lounge and is included in the tariff for specific accommodation types and for something entirely different, (paid) a-la-carte breakfast is also served at La Parisienne Cafe. As well as Bazaar Kitchen, dinner options include Waitui Bar & Grill Restaurant for adults-only and the beautiful Solis beachfront seafood restaurant
