Sonaisali Island, Viti Levu, Fiji

OUR thoughts on DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Fiji - Sonaisali Island
Although it's very close to the mainland, there is no mistaking that you are on an island when you stay at this resort hotel.  The surrounding sea and all the in-water and water-borne activities add immeasurably to the enjoyment of a holiday here. Paintballing and horse riding are two of the signature activities available but you will never be stuck for things to do with many optional activities available such as scuba dive courses and dive trips, trips to the famous Cloudbreak surf location which is only 15kms away, a sunset yacht cruise, easy access to the Denarau Golf Course (20kms away) and don’t overlook the resort’s own tennis court, their fitness facility and their delightful spa. 

From the moment you arrive at this resort, you can't help but be immediately drawn to the warm feeling of "family" this place engenders - all around you people are relaxing and enjoying theselves in that familiar "Fiji-fashion" you came here to experience.  The central focus-point of the resort is the large free-form horizon swimming pool (with swim-up bar), which is flanked by the resort’s main restaurant and sun-lounge deck, but the resort covers only a small area of Sonaisali Island.  The island itself is a good size and provides plenty of area for a private ramble and for those times when you might feel like a little private space around you.

As is the case on most of the not-so-far-away Denarau Island beaches, the beach sand here is grey, but that doesn't detract at all from the relaxing tropical feel of the Island. There is plenty of white sand above the tide line.

All accommodation is spacious and modern.  As well as all having been rejuvenated and raised to DoubleTree standard, we like the many thoughtful touches provided in each room, such as iPod docking stations, tea/coffee making facilities and the provision of an iron and ironing board. If you fancy a little tropical romance, it's well worth considering staying in one of the Premium Beachfront Bures which provide guests with lovely private verandas and great views of the sunsets.

This private island resort is a great spot for a wedding or honeymoon. DoubleTree Sonaisali is a “happening” place – there is always something of interest going on. The list of optional (charge) activities on tap is huge; everything from jet skis to game fishing, scuba diving, dive courses, sunset cruises, Fijian fire-walking, and a whole lot more. It also has excellent facilities for family holidays and conferences.

DoubleTree by Hilton is a reasonably new brand for Fiji so we thought it might be useful to provide a little insight into their philosophy. Part of the Hilton Group, DoubleTree is a successful and rapidly expanding hotel chain and this is their first South Pacific location. As outlined in their statement reproduced below, their aim is to be remembered for the “niceness” of a stay at all their locations.  Knowing what we do about the natural niceness of the Fijian people, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Fiji - Sonaisali Island will be very successful in their aim to provide their guests with a very nice experience indeed.
“Stay with us and see how nice travels.
Something happens when you stay at a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel. Maybe it’s all the little things we do to show we care. From thoughtful touches and friendly service to our warm chocolate chip cookie welcome, we’re here to make your stay as comfortable as possible, right from the start. The niceness you experience with us stays with you long after you check out, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.   

We’re proud to be a full-service hotel, where niceness matters above everything, and where we offer guests all the amenities they know and love, from fitness centres and pools to on-site dining. What could be nicer?”

What DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Fiji - Sonaisali Island Say About Themselves:
“DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Fiji – Sonaisali Island is surrounded by the warm waters of the South Pacific Ocean, just a three-minute boat ride from the main island of Viti Levu, and a short 25-minute drive from Nadi International Airport. The resort offers a wealth of amenities, beautiful accommodation and an authentic, warm Fijian welcome.

Guests staying at our hotel can choose from an array of activities, including paintballing, horseback riding and pampering spa treatments. Those looking to enjoy the natural beauty of the area while adopting the relaxed island pace of Fiji can swim in the freeform pool on the edge of the beach, or explore the beautiful coral reefs of the nearby Mamanuca Islands.

Each of the beachfront guest rooms incorporates a furnished balcony with stunning views of the South Pacific Ocean, and a wide range of guest amenities including Smart TV with satellite channels and the signature Sweet Dreams by DoubleTree beds.

With two restaurants and bars to choose from, guests benefit from a wide choice of cuisines and dining experiences in a variety of spellbinding environments. This beautiful resort also features three conference spaces, making it an ideal setting for a unique corporate event or spectacular wedding. 

We look forward to greeting you at check-in with a signature, warm chocolate chip cookie.”

Your Guestroom and Bure Options
The two, two level Guestroom Beachfront blocks are located on either side of the main building and pool complex. Both these blocks house the generous-sized hotel rooms and there is a superb ocean view from every one. Next to the Hotel Room blocks there is a row of single-level Premium Beachfront Bures. The Ocean View Bures are immediately behind the Premium Beachfront Bures and positioned to give occupants a nice view of the ocean framed by the Premium Beachfront Bures in front. The Bures in both categories have similar layout, size and facilities, the proximity to the ocean frontage is the main point of difference between them.
