Tanoa Plaza Hotel – Practical, handy, prime views, and good value.
Very appealing, the Tanoa is one of a chain across the South Pacific offering functional motel-style rooms. As a centrally-located high-rise, many rooms offer a lovely combination of views of the city streets as well as glimpses of the harbor. The Executive Suites are spacious, with a pleasant Fijian décor (e.g. bamboo furniture), marble bathrooms, Futon-style beds, and superb views from the tiny balconies and curved full-length windows. And with connecting doors, these are excellent for families. The Deluxe Rooms are compact, but the views are equally alluring. Other attractions are the lobby packed with Fijian art, friendly staff, and inclusion of breakfast. With a leafy suburban feel, it’s only a block from the main road, with several shops, cafés, and bars.
