Review of Sheraton Fiji Resort

Sheraton Fiji Resort – Exquisite beach, spacious grounds, and perfect for families.

Most of the rooms in the square, two-level, ocher-colored buildings directly face the sea or offer significant glimpses of the water through angled balconies/patios. With so many activities and a kids club, the Sheraton caters extremely well for families, but doesn’t forget adults, with a child-free pool and ‘quiet zone’. The meandering lagoon-style pool is strikingly located alongside the beach, and there is an impressive arcade of classy boutiques at the lobby. What’s more, the beach is sublime: a curved bay of white sand and blue water that is ideal for walking, swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing.

Sheraton Fiji Resort – 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 8 km from downtown Nadi and 15 km from the airport.
  • Guests: Caters overwhelmingly for families, although it also welcomes adults without children with special areas and a child-free pool.
  • Beach: This resort has the best beach on Denarau Island, and one of the finest in Fiji. White sand and calm water that is ideal for swimming and kayaking.
  • Views: Many rooms have sea views, but some are distant, and many views, especially from the ground floor, can be partially blocked.
  • WiFi: Free for guests throughout the hotel.
  • Parking: Always somewhere for guests to park for no cost.
  • Nice Perks: Guests can use the facilities in the adjoining and associated resorts: the Sheraton Villas and the Westin Resort.
