Bedarra Beach Inn – Functional, friendly, and affordable beachside resort.
In a tranquil setting between a beach and suburban street, the Bedarra is a midrange resort without the big crowds and high prices. In two-level mustard-colored blocks facing the pretty gardens, the rooms are very spacious and cater well to families – but there are no TVs. The Superior Rooms are not as big, but do offer genuine views from the substantial balconies/patios. Across the road in front is a private area with lounge chairs facing the beach, which is narrow and and a bit scruffy, but the water is calm enough for snorkeling and kayaking. And the pool is adequate for the limited number of guests. With a few places to eat and drink nearby, and being just off the Suva-Nadi bus route, it’s conveniently located.
Bedarra Beach Inn Fiji – The Basics
- Location: Along the southern coast of the main island, Viti Levu, in what’s called the Sunset Strip along the Coral Coast. About 75 km from Nadi and the airport, and 7 km from Sigatoka, a pleasant regional center.
- Guests: Seems to be aimed at the younger packaged-tour crowd.
- Beach: The beach across the street from the main entrance is narrow and not so clean, but calm and shallow for snorkeling and kayaking. Also, great for walks. A far better (and public) beach with white sand is at the Outrigger resort, 300m away via the beach.
- Views: Most rooms face the garden, while a handful front the sea only 50m away. A few also overlook another building.
- WiFi: Not complimentary anywhere in the hotel. Costs are high for hourly or daily use.
- Parking: Plenty of space – free and secure. The parking lot is accessible from the beachside road.
- Nice Perks: Free foot treatment at the spa per booking. Free rental of snorkeling equipment and kayaks.
- How to Book: Booking.com will have the best rates.

Bedarra Beach Inn Fiji – Amenities
- Pool: Square and adequate, with large umbrellas. Overlooked by the café, so not that private.
- Spa: BBI Spa offers good-value treatments, with Fijian-made products.
- Fitness Center: Not really expected or provided in this midrange hotel.
- Private Pools/Jacuzzis: None.
Bedarra Beach Inn Fiji – Food and Drink
- Restaurant: The Ocean Terrace Restaurant serves delicious and reasonably-priced meals, specializing in seafood, curries, pastas, and pizzas. Poolside and open-air with sea views and breeze. Romantic at night, with occasional live music.
- Bar: The Talanoa Bar offers lengthy happy hours. Breeze and views are best enjoyed from the outdoor seats rather than inside near the lobby. Ceremonies involving kava (a strong alcoholic drink) are held twice a week.
- Breakfast: Not included in the rates, and costs are high. Better value is the ‘meal plan’ that includes buffet breakfast and a 2-course dinner.
- Room Service: Available during normal restaurant hours, i.e. 7 am to about 9 pm.
Bedarra Beach Inn Fiji – Rooms
- Room Types: Standard Room • Deluxe Room • Superior Room • Superior Premium Room
- Smoking Rooms: Smoking is not permitted in the rooms or in the hotel buildings. OK in the gardens.
- Best Room: Facing the sea, the Superior Premium Rooms are particularly spacious and comfortable. On a corner with double the views and breeze from the private balconies, they would cost at least twice as much in a 5-star resort.
- For families: Many rooms can easily accommodate a family of 4 with a double and 2 single beds. Some rooms have interconnecting doors.
