This is beautifully situated hotel with rooms just metres from the tranquil water. The view is superb. The service is very good. Plenty of smiles and friendly staff. The rooms are clean and modern looking. Unfortunately not much storage space in the rooms and the walls are thin. We had someone next door who left his TV on loud all... More

we overnighted at the Novotel ( known to us as The Tradewinds in days gone by ) This hotel has probably the best location in Suva and a favourite of ours. Our room was a metre or so from the water and overlooked the lagoon past Mosquito island and across to Snake Island ( what we affectionately called them in... More

Novotel Lami Bay is a hotel that I remember from decades ago, when it was the Tradewinds. The hotel has been very nicely upgraded. The bay is reminiscent of peaceful harbours in Asia, with the lagoon look and the little islands sitting like bush covered mushrooms in the sea. Fish jump and can be watched from the open dining area.... More

We stayed in the Novotel Lami Bay for two nights before and two nights following a week of scuba diving. The hotel was a pleasant surprise! Very open, clean, modern. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating and the rooms were bright and airy with nice views of the ocean. They had a 50% off check in spa special that... More

Unfortunately, this is our third stay with Novotel Lami and each time, each experience is worst than the last. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who is concerned about quality service and value for money. I was very disappointed with our last stay and as the title suggest, this will NOT be our family hotel when we next... More

We booked in here for a business trip to Suva, and having seen it from the road were happy, but not expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised. The view from our room and the lobby/bar/restaurant were stunning and surprisingly soothing. Staff were quick and courteous, and our check out in the morning was rapid despite 3 people ahead of us.... More

Would recommend this hotel to my worst enemy, the staff couldn't care less about their potential customers and guests; they don't answer mails, they aren't polite, never on time. I can't believe it has the Novotel brand. I am a loyal Accor customer and I have been treated like I was nothing. They REALLY need to train their staff properly... More

Disappointing for an Accor Hotel, Fiji Time may be promoted as a positive thing but when you're hungry or want your room changed, this can be very frustrating. The food is ok compared to what you get in other places but is $$$ for what you get. All prices include 15% VAT which is everywhere, but what is the 5%... More
