Fiji Oasis Palms Hotel

Updated: July 3, 2018

Oasis Palms Hotel – Popular and idyllic, but a bit remote and no beach frontage.

It is in an isolated part of Wailoaloa and doesn’t face a beach, but those lazing about the sparkling blue pool don’t seem to mind because staff are so affable and the setting is so pleasant. The rooms are in eye-catching 2- and 3-level brown-and-white blocks, but the décor is uniformly bland. But what does vary are the outlooks from the balcony/veranda – i.e facing the pool (which is potentially noisy) or the back of another building – and the furnishings, which may include a double bunk bed for families. And it’s close enough to the airport to hear the planes (but they are infrequent).

Oasis Palms Hotel – The Basics

  • Location: On the main island of Viti Levu. At the far south-western end of Wailoaloa Beach, about 6km from Nadi town and 9km from the airport. On foot via the beach, it’s 30 minutes to the cafés and bars along the main strip at Wailoaloa.
  • Guests: Seems very much catered towards families on budget-priced holidays.
  • Beach: It doesn’t face a beach, and the nearby coastline has no sand. Guests can use the beach at the Club Fiji Resort nearby. The sand there is white, but it’s generally unappealing for swimming. The views and walks are lovely, however.
  • Views: Most rooms face the pool and pockets of palms. Others are in a less appealing block to the side, where rooms face inwards towards other rooms.
  • Wi-Fi Internet: Complimentary in all rooms and public areas.
  • Parking: No shortage of places to park.
  • Nice Perks: Free shuttle bus daily to downtown Nadi, and free transfers to/from the airport.

Oasis Palms Hotel – What’s Nearby?

Restaurants & Bars

  • Two excellent choices are only about 200m away:
  • The Cosmopolitan Dui Dui Restaurant – at the neighbouring Club Fiji Resort, with a truly impressive menu, including ‘Fijian-style’ curries and traditional lovo (a slow-cooked underground barbeque). Also children’s meals, excellent vegetarian options, amazing desserts and live music. 4-minute walk.
  • JB’s on the Beach Bar & Pizza Restaurant – in the grounds of the Club Fiji Resort. Upstairs dining for pizza, seafood, beers and breezes. 4-minute walk.
  • Otherwise, catch a taxi (4km) to the junction of Queens Road and the road into Wailoaloa, where there are several decent places – including the sophisticated Indian and Thai bar/restaurant, Sitar – and a Burger King. 6-minute drive.
  • Market or Grocery: Nothing nearby. Catch a taxi to the shops at the junction on Queens Road or to downtown Nadi. Otherwise, walk for 30 minutes via the beach to the modest facilities at Wailoaloa Beach.

Local Transport

    Walkable (30 minutes) via the beach to the main strip at Wailoaloa. Otherwise, taxis are the only way to get around. And order one with a meter.
