Tokatoka Resort Nadi Fiji

Updated: July 8, 2018

Tokatoka Resort Nadi Fiji – Expansive, great facilities, and convenient to the airport – a transit hotel and family resort.

Despite its position just across the road from the airport (but somehow rarely unaffected by plane noise), this is a bona fide resort, rather than just somewhere to stay overnight between connections. For example, the pool is lagoon-style and features a decent waterslide (which is surprisingly rare elsewhere). In blocks that unexpectedly face the quiet access road rather than the gardens, the rooms are comfortable without being remarkable, and many have connecting doors. But most accommodation is in semi-detached villas with louver windows, a full kitchen, and oodles of space, so they’re ideal for families. It is isolated, with very few places nearby to eat, drink or shop, but regular buses head down the road for all sorts of great options.

Tokatoka Resort Nadi Fiji – The Basics

  • Location: Along Queens Road in Nadi, on the main island of Viti Levu. Directly opposite the entrance to the Nadi Airport. About 10km from downtown Nadi and 8km from Wailoaloa Beach.
  • Guests: Caters especially well for those waiting for flights, but is also a genuine and affordable resort for families.
  • Beach: The nearest beach is at Wailoaloa (8km), accessible by bus along Queens Road – possibly with a connection at the junction (with the traffic lights) leading to the beach. The beach is disappointing, however: grey and gritty, with debris washed ashore at high-tide. But the general area is popular for walks and sunsets, and there’s a tropical holiday vibe along the main drag in Wailoaloa that’s absent elsewhere in Nadi.
  • Views: Almost all villas overlook gardens, while most rooms in the blocks face a quiet road.
  • Wi-Fi Internet: Available free in the lobby, bar and restaurant, but charges for use within the rooms.
  • Nice Perks: Complimentary shuttle bus to/from the airport.
  • Parking: Plenty of space to park a car.
