Fiji Hotel Oasis

Updated: July 3, 2018

Hotel Oasis – Tranquil, friendly, cosy and convenient budget option.

Turn off the frantic Queens Road into the leafy dead-end street, where the likeable suburban charm continues at the friendly reception. Among the tidy gardens of miniature palms and blooming bougainvillea are recently-renovated 2-level blocks. Rooms are unfussy, with a decent-sized balcony/veranda, simple kitchenette, and space for an extra single bed. The pool is petite but appealing, with a splash area to delight the toddlers. One advantage – other than the serenity – is the excellent range of places to eat, drink and shop along Queens Road nearby, including a mall with a cinema, nightclub and row of cafés. Another is that with seemingly zero promotion, and no signage along the main road, you may have the hotel to yourself.

Hotel Oasis – The Basics

(formerly known as the Dulcinea Oasis)

  • Location: 1 Ragg Street, in an area known as Martintar (or New Town), on the main island of Viti Levu. About 200m from Queens Road, which connects downtown Nadi with the airport. Turn off between the Hexagon and Mercure hotels. It’s about 3km to Wailoaloa beach and 5km to the airport.
  • Guests: Caters for all, especially those on a budget, including small families.
  • Beach: Not in a beach area, but Wailoaloa Beach (3km away) is easily accessible by bus or taxi. Although a tourist hotspot, the beach is grey and gritty, and often strewn with debris after high tide. It is, however, ideal for walks, views and sunsets.
  • Views: All rooms face the charming gardens.
  • Wi-Fi Internet: Not available at the time of research due to recent renovations, but should be available in the future for guests.
  • Parking: Plenty of free space onsite.

Hotel Oasis – Food and Drink

  • Restaurant & Bar: There is nowhere to eat or drink on the grounds, but excellent options are a few minutes away on foot (see below).
  • Breakfast: With no café onsite, breakfast is not available.

Hotel Oasis – Rooms

  • Room Types: Standard and Deluxe Rooms.
