Review of Sandy Point Beach Cottages hotel in Fiji

Sandy Point Beach Cottages – Modest self-contained cottages, ideal for budget-minded travelers.

Built in 1960, and the antithesis of the omnipotent Outrigger Resort nearby, the handful of basic cottages are well-separated among a manicured lawn with swaying palms. They almost feel like homes, with fully-equipped kitchens, small dining tables, and space for one (or even two) extra single beds, while the Family Cottage sleeps five. The beach directly in front is very narrow, but only meters away is an undeveloped beach perfect for walks, and the immaculate beach at the neighboring Outrigger is also public. And the pool is huge, considering the few guests. It is isolated, however, with no village shops nearby, so come prepared if self-catering.

Sandy Point Beach Cottages – The Basics

  • Location: Along the southern coast, in an area known as the Coral Coast, on the main island of Viti Levu. Next to the massive and well-known Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort. About 8 km from Sigatoka and 77 km from Nadi and the airport.
  • Guests: Caters for those on a budget, especially anyone driving and keen on self-catering.
  • Beach: Almost non-existent in front, but very good at the Outrigger Resort only 100m away.
  • Views: Views of the lawns and sea vary because they’re often partially blocked by palms, or are simply too far away.
  • WiFi: Not provided.
  • Parking: Plenty of secure parking for free.
  • How to Book: Book directly by contacting the management.
  • Phone: (679) 650 0125
