Grand West Villas – First-rate Fiji-style resort for families, serene and isolated.
On a substantial block along the road into Wailoaloa Beach, all accommodations are in attractive olive and mustard-colored two-level blocks facing the gardens. More like apartments than villas, each contains two bedrooms, a simple living/dining area, corner kitchen, and an extra bathroom. Adding to the appeal are the large balconies/patios, subtle Fijian-style décor, and big windows providing more light. There’s a small playground and inviting pool with a shady tropical feel and modest water slide, as well as a tennis court. The resort backs onto the runway, so the ground shakes when an occasional jet arrives. It’s a few minutes on foot to the beach and a little further to the main drag of eateries at Wailoaloa.
Grand West Villas – The Basics
- Location: Along Newtown Road, the road into Wailoaloa Beach, on the main island of Viti Levu. Less than a 10-minute walk to the facilities at Wailoaloa. About 7 km from the airport and 5 km to downtown Nadi.
- Guests: Caters for everyone but focuses on families, with perhaps more of an emphasis on Fijian guests than foreign.
- Beach: Wailoaloa Beach is within a 10-minute walk, but the sand is grey, with plenty of debris lying about. But it’s a great area for walks, sunsets and views.
- Views: All accommodation overlook the gardens, and the windows at the back face additional gardens or undeveloped land.
- WiFi: Available free to all guests throughout the hotel.
- Parking: Huge block with plenty of parking, often outside the rooms.
- How to Book: Booking.com will have the best rates.
