Fiji Quest Suva

Updated: July 4, 2018

Quest Suva – Downtown, modern and functional, but inevitably charmless.

Although catering mostly for business people on long stays, Quest happily accepts anyone for any length of time. It is easy to miss, on the 5th floor of a modern building, with an arcade of classy shops below. The Studio Executive Apartments are identical inside: with modern furnishings, a fully-equipped kitchen and sizeable bathroom. But the views differ significantly: with a balcony overlooking the street and with distant sea views, or with a tiny frosted window offering no outlook at all because it faces the carpark. The prime selling point is the city centre location, surrounded by places to eat, shop and drink, and within a stroll of the park, cathedral, bus station and malls.

Quest Suva – The Basics

  • Location: Renwick Road, in the centre of Suva, on the main island of Viti Levu. On the 5th floor of the BSP Suva Central building. About 30 minutes by taxi from the airport.
  • Guests: Almost exclusively caters to long-term guests, especially those on business.
  • Beach: There is no beach anywhere in or around Suva. The nearest is at Pacific Harbour, about 50km to the west, and not too far for a daytrip by bus.
  • Views: Apartments with a balcony offer views of the city and distant harbour. Others have tiny windows with no views at all.
  • Wi-Fi Internet: Provided free in the lobby, but otherwise there’s a very high negotiable charge depending on the length of stay.
  • Parking: Onsite parking available for free outside on the 5th floor.
