Mercure Nadi – Convenient, functional, ideal for business and transits, but not a resort.
The overwhelming selling point is the position: halfway between downtown Nadi and the airport, and easily accessible by bus to both. It is also adjacent to a mall with a cinema, supermarket, nightclub and an assortment of excellent cafés. As expected, being part of an international chain, the rooms are smart and practical – certainly better than a motel, but not really a resort. All rooms are colourful, spacious and feature a balcony/veranda overlooking the pool and surprisingly substantial internal gardens rather than the busy road. Added attractions are the buffet breakfast and free airport transfers. A solid option for business people, but for a resort or holiday transit far better options are available elsewhere.
Mercure Nadi – The Basics
- Location: In an area known as Martintar (or New Town), a suburb of Nadi, on the main island of Viti Levu. About halfway along Queens Road, the main thoroughfare that connects central Nadi (4km) with the airport (5km).
- Guests: Caters mostly to business people and anyone looking for somewhere close to the airport between flights. It tries to be a resort but mostly fails.
- Beach: Not in a beach area, but Wailoaloa (3km) 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 look inwards, overlooking the gardens and pool.
- Wi-Fi Internet: Free in the lobby/bar/restaurant area, but costs within the rooms.
- Parking: Enough parking near the lobby. Free and secure.
- Nice Perks: Free airport transfers.

Mercure Nadi – Amenities
- Pool: The pool is decent enough, with a tropical feel and separate area for toddlers. It’s surrounded by wooden decking and sand, which looks out of place because it’s not really a resort.
- Spa: The Tiare Spa offers the usual array of treatments in a small area.
- Fitness Center: None.
- Private Pools/Jacuzzis: None.
Mercure Nadi – Food and Drink
- Restaurant & Bar: The Rokete Bar & Restaurant in the lobby provides all-day dining – primarily for guests who don’t know there is so much better on offer within walking distance (see below). Open from 6am.
- Breakfast: Included in some rates, but not all. Available from 6am. Don’t book/pay for breakfast with an early flight.
- Room Service: Available from 10.30am to 11pm.
Mercure Nadi – Rooms
- Room Types: Standard • Superior • Deluxe Rooms
- Smoking Rooms: No smoking allowed in the rooms or public areas. OK elsewhere.
- Best Room: Rooms are very similar inside, with an identical décor and similar size. The Deluxe Room King Bed offers slightly more space and potentially, better garden views from the balcony.
