Oasis Palms Hotel – Popular and idyllic, though a bit remote.
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 the staff is so friendly and the setting so pleasant. The rooms are in eye-catching two and three-level brown-and-white blocks. What does vary are the views from the balconies/patios – i.e facing the pool (which is potentially noisy) or the back of another building – and the furnishings, which may include double bunk beds 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 6 km from Nadi town and 9 km 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 not good for swimming. The views and walks are lovely, however.
- Views: Most rooms face the pool and pockets of palms. Others are in a block to the side, where rooms face inwards towards other rooms.
- WiFi: 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.
- How to Book: Booking.com will have the best rates.

Oasis Palms Hotel – What’s Nearby?
Best Nearby Restaurants & Bars
Two excellent choices are only about 200m away:
- The Cosmopolitan Dui Dui Restaurant – At the neighboring Club Fiji Resort, with a truly impressive menu, including Fijian-style curries and traditional lovo (a slow-cooked underground barbecue). Also children’s meals, excellent vegetarian options, amazing desserts, and live music.
- JB’s on the Beach Bar & Pizza Restaurant – In the grounds of the Club Fiji Resort. Upstairs dining for pizza, seafood, beers, and breeze.
- Otherwise, catch a taxi (4 km) 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.
Nearby 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.
- 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.
