“Relaxing week away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Spent 6 nights in Fiji here. Accommodation was a 2 bed, 2 bath with balcony facing across the pool to the beach. Room was very comfortable with plenty of room for the 4 of us. Lots to see and do both in and out of the resort. Hot tub near the pool is excellent!! The in-pool bar is great for just sitting around and relaxing. The beach isn't that good, but all the resorts on Denarau have the same problem. The staff are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble for them. Would like to return and do it all again

Stayed here with family - including 2 teenagers; excellent accommodation, spacious, clean, new. Great water activities and eating options. Like the other resorts along here there was no beach, but the pool was excellent, as was the service. Probably worth missing the Wyndham 'sales pitch' talk as it takes time away from other more pleasurable activities! Would stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for one of the newly constructed rooms

Wyndham on Denarau..................Bula, Bula and Bula Vinaka!! We love you and we prove that as we keep flocking back to you!!
When I first wrote a review back in January 2010, it was about this resort. And that simple story has been read by 2900 readers!!!!
Well hubby and I have just returned to Oz after our 5th visit and we are still raving about it!!!
Last visit was 2.5 yrs ago...........and we finally got married there, right on the beach, barefoot in a sarong as the sun was setting. Many couples have done likewise or renewed their vows in the same setting....................we see it every other night when we are sipping on a sunset cocktail, listening to the serenading Fijian men by the pool.
On this trip, we have inspected and marvelled at the 60+ brand new units that have been built whilst we have been away. Some are luxurious presidential style suites with their very own pool and BBQ area out the back on their patio PLUS a plasma TV, even in the bathroom!!
The swim up bar has been upgraded, there are 2 new wonderful eating areas, the new wing has its own pool and spa areas...............the list just goes on and on.
The MAIN thing to note is that the staff are still WONDERFUL and the cleanliness and service from the staff is always PERFECT. There are never any complaints from us, or our family who we have shared holidays with on Denarau.
We visited other family at another well known family friendly resort recently and were SHOCKED at the size of their "family friendly unit"........NOT!! It was......PATHETICALLY small with NO cooking facilities and a tiny fridge............and they have 3 children who constantly want to EAT!!
Our units are HUGE, our kitchen is both large and practical and there is NOTHING to complain about!! After visiting a few Fijian resorts over the past 12 years...............may I tell you ALL that there is nothing better than this resort for value, size, cleanliness and sheer HAPPINESS!!. Everything you would want to make your holiday relaxing and enjoyable is here at Wyndham Denarau.................just ask anyone who has been there. And why would we keep on going back........................ViNAKA!! PS.........Beats driving all the way to the Coral Coast as it is SO handy to Nadi and the airport!!

Bula - Excellent Winter Getaway. 'Warm, Friendly, Helpful Staff - No Problem too big. Clean
Beautiful, Peaceful Surroundings with Amazing Gardens. Loads of Activities. Loved seeing My Hubby really relax xo It was an awesome place to catch up on some much needed Quality Time with 2 of my Older Siblings who were amazed with the whole experience. Thank You Wyndham Resort Fiji and All Your Fabulous Staff for making our first ever Holiday an Extremely Memorable one and one which I'm sure will be hard to beat. Vinaka Vaka Levu

This was a "holiday of a lifetime". Our family group was spread over three 2-bedroom units, two in the older section that housed the young families, and one of the luxurious new units that housed the 'oldies'. Each appropriate for the users. There is so much to do at Wyndham itself, that you really don't need to move out of the resort, but we did three day trips, competently organised by Rosies Travel Agency, within the resort. Getting around was easy, we used the $1.15 yellow bus (50c for children) into Nadi, or getting to the Denarau Marina. This is a unique experience, and a great way to meet the locals. For our golfers, the course was just across the road. A playoff for the Rugby Union World Cup in 2015 occurred in Lautoka, Fiji vs Cook Islands, and easily reached by catching the yellow bus into Nadi, and for the princely sum of $2.80, another bus to Lautoka, which is a really nice town. The atmosphere at the game was friendly and the half time entertainment really special. It is easy to move around to the other resorts on Denarau Island and to take a swim or a meal at them, and restaurants abound at Denarau Marina, and the prices at Jacks souvenir store (a local chain) were the same as in Nadi. We shopped at the Nadi markets to stock up on fruit etc, and at several of the supermarkets. However, the two restaurants and snack bar at Wyndham, more than cater for your needs. The staff are amazingly helpful and friendly - 4 changes of bedding one night when the grandkids were sick - no problem! For a great getaway can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: If you're an adult only group, ask for the section that is near the adult only pool.

We stayed in one of the older units on the very edge of the resort but just around the corner from the pool. Yes the rooms are not usual Wyndham standard but they still have everything you need and are very comfortable. I was advised these rooms will be renovated next year but honestly I would be happy to stay in one of them again.

Our stay was for 9 nights and I think a few more would have been just perfect. We have two girls aged 6 and 8. The kids club was very informal (relaxed) but the girls loved it. Fish feeding every morning at 9.30am was the favourite closely followed by the nightly movies.

We really enjoyed the dancing/fire shows at the restaurants. You can watch even if you are not dining at the time which I think is a big bonus.
The Mexican restaurant was fabulous. Pizzas from the pool bar were great however a bit inconsistent in size. Food at the other beach restaurant was great but a bit expensive for us.
When ordering drinks and food from the pool bar I suggest you wait at the bar for them. A few times I had to go back to chase up on our order that seemed to have gone missing.

We booked a transfer from the airport to the resort using Rosie's which have a tour desk at the resort. This cost us $40 Fiji dollars for 4 of us each way. However we found out if you catch a taxi it would be $30 Fiji dollars each way. I didn't mind paying the extra as it gave me piece of mind that they were there waiting for you at a designated time.

We decided on local advice that the best grocery shopping was at MH Namaka. This cost us $60 Fiji return in a taxi but I now think after talking to other guests that you can get exactly the same items at the same price in Nadi for $30 Fiji return. Others advised that if you go to Nadi the driver will take you to fruit and veg market and well as the butcher on the return trip. We found fruit and veg very expensive and hard to get at Namaka. We did go to the Butcher on the return trip and I was impressed with the choice of meat. We purchased a kilo of beef sausages and three chicken schnitzels for $32.90 Fiji dollars.

Bread at the Resort is expensive $3.35 Fiji dollars compared to buying at a bakery $1.05 Fiji dollars. There is a bakery at the Marina complex. Very popular place selling pies and sandwiches etc. There is also a convenience store at the Marina and at the Resort but more expensive than in town.

To get to the Marina we caught the yellow (westbus) bus. You catch it outside the Resort and it drops you a couple of blocks (short walk) from the Marina complex. To get back it will pick you up at the Marina. It only cost us $2.10 Fiji for all 4 each way.

We didn't do any tours (once again we were on a budget) but we were advised to book directly with the operators at the Marina to save money.

There is a big water park on the way to Wyndham but other guests advised us it is more suited to older kids so we stayed away.

The pool at Wyndham is my pick out of the resorts close by. We went for a walk to see the other places ie Radisson and Sheraton. It is great being so close to the other resorts as this gives you more dinning options.

My girls cried when it was time to leave as we had a great time. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the location is fabulous.

This is the third time we have stayed here. Although the rooms are a bit tired - the older units (although there are now new units that have been built), we just love it here. We stayed once before at the Sofitel and would more than likely stay at at the Wyndham as they are units with all facilities. The staff are all friendly and the experience is fantastic. The units are clean and so are the grounds. Thank you Wyndham once again.

Room Tip: I would recommend staying in one of the new units.
