The Sofitel may be the best of the hotels along the Denarau coastal strip but it has a terrible problem with mynahs - the species of bird imported from India that has grown to plague proportions in Fiji. The Sofitel breakfast can't be faulted, up to and including the sparkling wine on offer as a hair of the dog after... More

After staying at the Outrigger and paying a ridiculous return transfer fare we were happy to stay at this hotel on Denarau Island. The room was a standard hotel sized guest room however we didn't stay indoors very often as the pool area is gorgeous and the dining is exceptional. We especially enjoyed the champagne buffet breakfast. The cultural show... More

Stayed 6 nights at the Sofitel! The staff were lovely especially Joseph the Porter who looked after us! Room was nice, but could do with an update.

We stayed 7 nights in a very comfortable 2nd floor hotel-style room which was a bit of a walk back to the Reception/facilities area. The staff were very friendly and their relaxed style took a bit of getting use to. The restaurant was located near the beach and had a good selection of food which was really yummy. The staff...

Have just returned home after 14 nights on Denarau Island - the first week at the Sofitel and the second week at the Sheraton. I've stayed at lots of Sofitels and Sheratons and Marriotts and Hiltons etc (you get the picture!) for work so expected them both to be good - but the contrast couldn't have been greater. we actually...

Thank you sofitel for making us feel wanted. A group of 15 of us actually came of a cruise for a day trip to Denarau.

We stayed here for 5 nights when the hotel was full to capacity so this may have hindered our trip somewhat and when it is less busy the service is probably much better. We didn't have any issue with staff being rude or unhelpful it was simply that you had to queue and wait for everything - reception, guest services,... More
