Tranfer from Shangra La to Airport

Tranfer from Shangra La to Airport

We are staying at the Shangra-La in late September for a Family holiday and just wondering if anyone can advise if it is a major hassle to check out and get to Nadi air port in time for the 8 15 am flight. we were considering checking out the day before and maybe staying at raffles to make it easier to get there the required hour or so before the flight. Also can anyone advise if using the tranfers provided by Shangra -la resort , whether they get upset about stopping on the way to pick up some provision ie beer and snacks ?

We were there last year and had our transfers orgainsed by our travel agent. We asked if they could stop along the wasy to pick up water etc.... and they were more than happy to. We stopped at a little "convenience store" but i'm not sure if they sold beer as we didn't ask for any.

We caught the 8:15am flight and had checked out the night before. We had no trouble getting help with our luggage (from room to lobby) and our transfer was right on time.

The only problem was having to get up extra early but, we think that everything about leaving Fiji is horrible so waking up early doesn't make us any unhappier :D :D :D

We are going back in 4 weeks and can't wait!!! We have chosen to take the 8:15am flight again.

I too would get a taxi, more comfortable and not that expensive when you convert the Fiji dollar back to Aussie. Not too many more sleeps for you then. We are going back in Oct - .counting down.

Hiya we've just got back from lovely Fiji and the Shangri-La.

Our taxi stopped en-route from the airport at a supermarket that sold beer and we stocked up.

From what the others have said it sounds like you'll be fine checking out and everything for your early flight home.

Have a wonderful holiday :-)
