If you need to spend time in Suva, the Novotel in Lami Bay is an excellent choice. The location is gorgeous: right on the end of a quiet bay with wonderful views. The Tonique Bar is a great place for an evening drink (happy hour from 5:30 to 6:30); the bar selection is excellent, although the guitar-playing singer left something to be desired. Our room, a Garden View with one Queen bed and a single bed, was clean and amazingly spacious. We did hear a bit of noise from the main road outside but after about 11 pm it died down considerably. The staff was friendly and attentive for the most part. My only quibble is that when I asked the evening desk person about buses to Suva, I was not given any helpful information at all -- he didn't seem to have a clue. In the morning, while checking out, I discovered that the hotel actually offers a free shuttle to Suva on a fairly regular basis. Why the night person couldn't have told me about it is beyond me. Our air conditioner didn't work properly: a call to the desk resulted in an immediate response from Housekeeping who switched the batteries around in the remote control; this did not solve the problem so we had no A/C that night. Dinner at the Husk was fairly good for the price but we passed on the buffet breakfast which, at FJD 36.00/each seemed exorbitant. When I asked the night clerk if we could just have coffee and toast, he informed me that it would still count as the buffet breakfast. A few moments later, he said that I might be able to arrange coffee and toast for about FJD 19.00 ! We had breakfast in Suva instead.
