Club Fiji Resort – Tropical, cozy, and modern resort by the beach.
The setting is typically tropical: rustic wooden bures (bungalows) dotted among swaying palms that line manicured lawns sprinkled with thatched umbrellas and hammocks. All that’s missing is a good beach: the sand is grayish and the water shallow, though the staff keeps it clean. The bungalows are semi-detached and would be semi-private if sharing a building with a stranger, but with connecting doors and space for two extra single beds, they are great for families. Comfortable and unfussy, with plenty of louvers catching the breeze. The gardens are extensive, the pool sparkles, and the overall setting is so serene, but it is fairly isolated: only accessible by taxi and a long walk to the facilities at Wailoaloa Beach.
Club Fiji Resort – The Basics
- Location: On the main island of Viti Levu. At the end of an access road, about 5 km from Nadi and 9 km from the airport. Via the beach, it’s about 25 minutes on foot to the main strip of cafés and bars at Wailoaloa Beach.
- Guests: Probably geared more to young people on a budget holiday, although good for families, too.
- Beach: The beach is decent, better than at the main Wailoaloa beach area. When the tide is out, it leaves sandbars and debris along the shore. Great for walking but not for swimming or sunbathing.
- Views: Bungalows at the front face the garden and sea. Others face the back of these bungalows.
- WiFi: Not provided free, but the charge is minimal and better value than most places elsewhere.
- Parking: Plenty of free parking.
- Nice Perks: Daily shuttle bus offers complimentary rides to downtown Nadi via the shops on Queens Road. Free pick-up from the airport.
- How to Book: Booking.com will have the best rates.

Club Fiji Resort – Food and Drink
- Restaurant: The Cosmopolitan Dui Dui Restaurant has a unique name and a truly impressive menu, including Fijian-style curries and traditional lovo (a slow-cooked underground barbecue). Teppanyaki grills, a lengthy dessert menu, children’s meals, excellent vegetarian options, and live music add immensely to the appeal.

Club Fiji Resort – Rooms
- Room Types: Beachfront Bure (bungalow) • Ocean View Bure • Ocean View Family Bure • Garden Court Bure • Garden Bure
- Smoking Rooms: Smoking is not permitted in any buildings, but OK elsewhere.
- Best Room: All bungalows are pretty much the same inside, but the Beachfront Bures – which can sleep families of 4 – directly face the sea. Ask for one distant from the lobby/bar/pool area.
Club Fiji Resort – What’s Nearby?
Best Nearby Restaurants & Bars
There is a basic café and bar at the Oasis Palms Hotel, about 200m away. The only other option within walking distance is JB’s on the Beach Bar & Restaurant. In the gardens of the hotel, it’s breezy and modern, and popular for pizzas and seafood. Otherwise, walk 25 minutes via the beach during the day (and take a taxi at night) to downtown Wailoaloa and try:
- Awesome Grill – Friendly place with alfresco setting (and indoor seats) for burgers, pastas, and salads. Bring your own booze. At the crossroads into Wailoaloa.
- Travellers Beach Café – Always popular with backpackers searching for good value and a great vibe.
Nearby Market or Grocery
- Walk 25 minutes via the beach to the mini-market at the crossroads into Wailloaloa, or get a taxi to the shops on Queens Road or in downtown Nadi.
- No public transport anywhere nearby, so guests are reliant on taxis. Ask the reception to order a taxi with a meter rather than the unmetered ones that linger about. Wailoaloa Beach is connected by bus/minibus to Nadi.
