Sheraton Denarau Villas – Divine setting and dazzling facilities, but more for adults.
On the ritzy gated island of Denarau, these 2- and 3-bedroom villas are in eye-catching 3-level blocks featuring an unusual but likeable Fijian design of shingle roofs and whitewashed walls. The Seafront Villas are roomy and boast magnificent views, but most other types of villas face the extended twin-level pool. And the other pool has Infinity-style edges that seem to drift into the sea. The only drawback is lack of serviceable beach directly in front – but a scenic cove of white sands and blue waters commandeered by the sister Sheraton Resort is only 200m away. Despite the villas being large and featuring a kitchen, management don’t seem that focused on attracting families.
Sheraton Denarau Villas – The Basics
- Location: On Denarau Island, attached to the main island of Viti Levu. Denarau is a gated complex of upmarket resorts and not really an ‘island’, but joined to the mainland and accessible along a 50m-long causeway. About 7km from downtown Nadi and 14km from the airport.
- Guests: Seems to appeal more to couples and older guests, although children are welcome. Families are better catered for at the neighbouring Sheraton Fiji Resort.
- Beach: The beach directly in front is just a long line of imported rocks, but an exquisite beach is within 200m at the Sheraton Resort next door.
- Views: Most villas face the lawns, gardens and/or pools. A few feature sea views, but these may be a little distant or blocked by mounds or palms.
- Wi-Fi Internet: Free for all guests throughout the resort.
- Parking: Always somewhere for guests to park onsite at no cost.
- Nice Perks: Guests can use the facilities in the adjoining and associated Sheraton and Westin resorts.

Sheraton Denarau Villas – Amenities
- Pools: There are 2: 1 twin-level pool alongside some villas, and another with Infinity edges right at the beach with a swim-up bar.

- Fitness Center: Guests can use the Workout Fitness Studio at the Westin Resort.
- Private Pools/Jacuzzis: None.
- Activities: The water sports counter is at the Sheraton Resort next door. The Denarau Golf & Racquet Club, about 1.2km from the resort and accessible by bus, also has tennis courts.
- For children: There’s a playground at the neighbouring Westin Resort, and another at the Sheraton Resort, which also has the LaiLai Kids Club with many activities for the young ones. And just over the road is the Big Bula Water Park, enjoyed as much by adults (up to 85kg) as children.
Sheraton Denarau Villas – Food and Drink
- Restaurant & Bar: There is only 1 restaurant onsite because many guests would eat at the sister Sheraton Resort next door (see below). The open-air Wet Edge café faces the beach and pool (with swim-up bar), and is surrounded by palms. With an extensive menu and children’s meals.
- Breakfast: Not included in the rates, but ask about discounted buffet breakfasts.
- Room Service: Available 24 hours a day.
Sheraton Denarau Villas – Rooms
- Room Types: 2 Bedroom Garden Villas • 2 Bedroom Lagoon Villas • 2 Bedroom Seafront Villas • 3 Bedroom Seafront Loft Villas
- Smoking Rooms: No smoking in any rooms or public areas, but OK in the gardens or on the beach.
- Best Room: The magnificent Seafront Villas, with 2 or 3 bedrooms, face the ocean and Infinity-edge pool. Those with 3 bedrooms are on the third floor for prime views, and feature a huge lounge/dining area and loft with the master bedroom and a second bathroom.
- For families: Villas feature a fully-equipped kitchen and 2 bedrooms (sleeping up to 6) or 3 bedrooms (sleeping up to 8).
