Fiji Club Oceanus

Updated: June 27, 2018

Club Oceanus – Riverside, budget-priced, and better than the outside suggests.

Low-key and low-priced, this is alongside a river almost hidden from the main road. The overall vibe is appealing, with colonial-style whitewashed walls and an extended brown-tiled patio with wooden chairs. All rooms are in a row facing the lawns, palms and river, and very similar inside: surprisingly spacious, with a tiled floor and plenty of windows. The only difference is the number of beds – 1, 2 or 3 (so ideal for groups or families). One room also contains a kitchenette, while those closer to the main road would suffer from slight traffic noise. Bonuses are the pool, onsite dive centre offering boat trips from the private wharf, and breezy café.

Club Oceanus – The Basics

  • Location: Just back from the crossroads, at 1 Atoll Place, along the western end of Pacific Harbour, midway along the southern coast of the main island, Viti Levu. About 50 minutes by bus (quicker by car/taxi) from Suva, and another 30 minutes from the international airport at Nausori.
  • Guests: Primarily for those on a budget and perhaps, for anyone more keen about spending money on adventure than accommodation.
  • Beach: The beach is about 500m away via the main road; ask staff about a short cut. Otherwise, use the public beach in front of the Pearl Resort, next door.
  • Views: All rooms face the lush lawns, with the river barely 50m away.
  • Wi-Fi Internet: Free for all guests, but only available at the lobby; not in the rooms.
  • Parking: Plenty of parking available for free at the lobby.
  • Phone: (679) 345 0498

Restaurants & Bars

  • At the Pearl Resort next door, there are 3 worthwhile options:

  • Otherwise, walk about 1km to the cluster of delightful cafés and shops in the Arts Village facing the lily pond, including: Oasis Restaurant (for coffee, burgers and pizzas); Baka Blues Café (barbeques, Cajun food and live music nightly); and Water’s Edge (with spacious decking and permanent specials, including delicious curries). 15-minute walk.
  • Market or Grocery: A couple of minimarts are at the junction along the main road, about 200m from the hotel entrance, but better facilities are at the Arts Village.

Local Transport

  • Just a 2-minute stroll to the main road along which buses head to Suva and Nadi every hour or so. A few taxis ply the main road; best ordered from the hotel.
