Real effort is made for the one and only decent hotel in lautoka. Most times I would head out for dinner but not last evening. It was worth it home made sweet corn soup, fresh hot buns hiding a knob of butter inside, then the traditional Kokoda marinated local fish in lime and coconut cream and as a bonus smiling... More

Location: very far from anything (more than 30 min to airport, popular spots for tourist on other side of the island), only industrial streets, not many restaurants or cafes. IT IS NOT WATERFRONT!! It's located in horrible area, with stinky water at the front of hotel, your view from window is a street or some old warehouses. Service: very rude... More

We enjoyed every moment and every day of our 6 day stay at Waterfront Hotel. Its actually a waterfront hotel (and not just for the name of it), with a scenic peaceful view.

Tanoa Waterfront is set in a lovely quite seaside area of Lautoka The morning walks to see the sunrise were a treat. There are a great variety of birds for bird lovers. . Tanoa is away from the city so you need transportation to go anywhere. There is one restaurant but I did not find it very good. Other restaurants... More
