This our third time to Denaru Island and our second trip with My Fiji organised by the My Holiday Centre, there must be something good for us to keep going back.
However I will get the negatives out of the way first.
We again took advantage of the MyFiji golfing package, last year we flew with Virgin and weren't charged for taking our clubs, this year we flew Air Pacificwith a total baggage load of 38kg we were charged A$100 to take our golf bags, an unexpected cost and, adding insult to injury, our other 2 traveling companions, with more luggage (including golf bags) than us weren't asked to pay anything.
On our arrival at the My Fiji office at the airport in Nadi we were told that we had to pay F$96 to have our clubs taken to the Sheraton on the pre-paid shuttle bus, ( a taxi ride is only $30) so the total for 2 couples would have F192, we refused to pay and in the end they took us any way, this left a sour note, while they do say a charge maybe made, it was a cash grab and we couldn't find any other golfers who were asked to pay, any way enough of the negatives, we will fly virgin and get a taxi next time.
This is a great MyFiji package, the Sheraton as with all the hotels on Denaru was great, we had an ocean view room and while not a spectacular view , a glass of wine on the terrace with the sun setting over the sea was beautiful.
The room itself was typical resort room, spacious, very clean with all you would expect of a Sheraton.
Our package included buffet breakfast, again typical of a Sheraton so you can expect a fantastic selection.
Our package also included evening meals, entree main or main sweet and you can eat in 6 restaurants and the golf club bar over the stay. You can also use the Westin restaurants and the Wet Edge outside of the Sheraton Villas perched over the water , very nice. All restaurants were very good, the sea food buffet at feast was exceptional, the steak at moo moo,s a real treat, and the 5 star Port of Call not really our style but if its service you want the this is the place, fantastic.
Our package also included unlimited golf at the Denaru Golf and Raquet club, an excellent facility, we played 5 of the days. The course is very good, the greens were not at their best, but we are spoiled by the greens at our local club at Bargara, QLD, take a few balls as there are lots of challenging water hazards, especially for the higher handicapper, Levi at the golf course sells balls for F$2 so buy the recovered balls from him and its not so painful.The course is great to play with some great scenery to the mountains and the sea.
What else, the contents of the MyFiji package goes on, we went to South Sea Island a coral cay for a day including lunch and then island hopped with the catamaran on the way back, an idyllic setting
There was also a half day trip to Nadi and outlying villages, my wife and friend enjoyed it , saw how the Fijians live and a trip to the markets and shops in Nadi, golf was a much better option for the men.
You can also swap one meal voucher for a night time Fijian cultural show, dancing and some folklore in traditional dress, the meal although plenty of choice was definitely bbq standard not fine dining.
What a great holiday, fantastic price, great hotel and warm and friendly, laid back people
