The 5 Best Hotels for Families in Fiji
One of Fiji’s very best for families. Myriad of activities offered including pool aerobics, coconut bocce, cultural walks, outdoor movies, and snorkeling and kayaking in calm waters. And, unusually, the kids’ club is divided for ages 3 to 7, and 8 to 12. Child-minding is also available with loveable local nannies. Close to the Sigatoka Sand Dunes and excellent Kula Wild Adventure Park. All rooms can squeeze in 2 children; some bungalows are set up for families; and special deals are always available.

Range of pleasing activities, such as disco/movie nights, Fijian language lessons and, um, ‘shark wrestling’. Blu Bananas Kids Club separated for ages 1 to 3 and 4 to 12, and child minding available. Other benefits: kids’ menus, 2 children’s pools for different ages, water slide (for adults, too), playground and attractive packaged deals. The Radisson doesn’t win Best Family Hotel in Fiji awards year after year without reason.

Exceptional array of facilities, including water sports, first-rate kids’ club, extended games room and impressive shopping arcade. Adding to the appeal for families are vast tropical gardens, playground, children’s menu and massive pool, with shallow areas for younger ones.
