Spend two nights here. Recommended if you looking to stay close to city at a reasonable price. The cleaning and water pressure in the shower is not up to the needs but it's reasonably enough with the price you pay/night. The staff were very helpful and kind to us from day one. Very welcoming and friendly.

My first experience in Fiji was when I came alone and stayed at Sandalwood. Years later I am still coming back, despite staying over much of Fiji, Sandalwood is 'home'. Did not stay here last year, this place is so popular that often, my impulsive bookings find Sandalwood full! So this time I have booked my 2 Fiji trips acc... More

At the last minute I had to book a flight and accommodation in Nadi. I emailed the Sandalwood, but I was informed they were having problems with their IT carrier. I called the front desk and made the booking and within the hour I had an email from the Manager, apologising for the confusion, confirming and providing details. No problems... More

I have been trying to make a reservation at the Sandalwood Lodge for 2014. This has been going on for months. I have sent emails, called them numerous times (at considerable cost to myself) with no reply from anyone there especially Angela who is the so-called Manager. I have given upon this property and booked another hotel in Nadi. So... More

The Best Budget 5 Star accommodation in Nadi. The Lodge was recommended to me by a very great friend who works in the tourism industry. The Lodge rooms are so clean, as is it's surrounding gardens, makes you feel at home very cosy. The rooms are self-contained which is a bonus, you can do your own cooking if you don't... More

Sandalwood Lodge is classified under B&B but they do not serve breakfast. This was not a problem as there are good places nearby such as Tu’s Place, which is about 150 metres up the road. Sandalwood is a good, cheap place for a transit stay. It is not as close to the airport as you might think, but a free... More

This is a basic clean budget accommodation but what makes it so wonderful are the friendly staff. They get to know your name and always take the time to talk to you and make you feel welcome. The cleaning staff, especially Emily are terrific, Joe the pool/garden guy, Sisi, Nancy and Rebeka at the front desk, even the night staff... More

We used the Sandalwood Lodge twice. After a late arrival and the night before our departure. It is a nice and quiet place which offers everything you need. A nice pool, a little kitchen in your room, as they do not serve any food. This is not an issue as there is a supermarket about 5 minutes walk away. The... More
