“beatiful but needs work”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Stunning resort but the staff have truly made this holiday for us.
Rooms are a bit tired, crap lighting and the power would cut out every now and
then. I love that the rooms were serviced twice a day though amd if ever we
needed more towels or anything they would bring them up in no time.
The food was over priced for what it was. I would have liked to have seen more
of a range of fresh vegetables and local produce.
Tips: take plenty of snakcs, water and alcohol. We very rarely ate lunch as it was
too expensive for what was on offer. You definitely need those snacks though
for in between times. Overall a beautiful resort with plenty of things to
do but like I said the staff made this holiday for us. Very beautiful people.

Room Tip: GO TO THE SPA!!! Above and beyond what I expected. Truly amazing!

My husband and I stayed at the Shagri-La Fijian Resort for four nights on our way home from a trip to New Zealand. The resort is located about an hour from the airport and the cost for a taxi is about 100 Fiji dollars. We stay in a Deluxe Ocean Family room. Our views were spectacular! The people are so friendly. They cleaned our room in the morning and also did turn-down service in the evening. One of amenities housekeeping provide along with shampoo, conditioner, soap etc... is elastic hair ties! I did not pack any and was delighted when I saw they were complimentary! The resort is large so expect to walk a good amount. There are a lot of families with children here. We took advantage of the complimentary kayaking everyday.
Only a couple of negative remarks... 1) WIFI is available at the pools and lobby, but it is very slow. I could never get my tablet to connect. 2) The cost of the food is very expensive, and you have no other choice but to eat at the resort. We chose to only eat breakfast and dinner.

I would go back to this resort in a heartbeat. It is beautiful and friendly.

Room Tip: Deluxe family rooms are RIGHT on the beach.

Had an amazing holiday and the kids thought it was great. Fijian staff were incredibly friendly and a credit to the resort! Anything extra outside of our package deal was expensive, but otherwise thoroughly recommend it as a family holiday!

We were not happy at all here. We had a 10-15min walk everywhere in the heat to the pool, restaurant, day spa, lobby, etc. The restaurant choices were very ordinary and food poor - far from 5*. The bed was rock hard. The kids club was miles away and didnt offer much. There wasnt bath facilities in the room either, we couldn't wait to leave for a better hotel.

The Fijian people are just delightful. They are very gentle and have a very strong sense of community and pride. I highly recommend spending some quality time with them. The beds are like sleeping on a cloud.

We stayed at the Shangri-La the first week of March 2014 for our honeymoon. We had read mixed reports about the resort so were a little apprehensive. Our welcome was great. The Fijians are such welcoming people. We had a superior ocean view room on the top floor of the Golden Cowrie Wing which was fantastic. We didn't hear another person the whole time we were there and it was central to everything. After walking around the resort to check everything out I felt this was definitely the best section of the resort to be in.
The food was great. Breakfast was part of our package and we went to the adults only Golden Cowrie restaurant for breakfast each day. The buffet was great there. My wife got a flower in her each morning and it had a view out over the ocean. We loaded up at breakfast and didn't feel hungry for the rest of the day. If we did have lunch it was just a bowl of wedges at the Takali Terrace, which was right next to the Adults Only pool. Such a great spot. We always found a lounge chair to lie in, the staff were great at asking us for drinks and bringing them to us. For dinner I recommend you stay away from the Lagoon Terrace buffet, the food was great but for the two of us it cost $110 AUD. The Takali Terrace is the best option. Thai, Chinese or Indian food and it cost us $50 AUD. We each had a main that was enough to fill us and a couple of drinks. A massive difference when staying a whole week. The Bilo Bar was a great place for happy hour drinks. We also met a local 'David' who included everyone in 'Kava Time'.
The internet connection was non existent which was our only downfall on the trip. Even the internet in the internet café was painfully slow and non existent at times.
I'd also recommend that when you get to the airport you buy bottles of water and some alcohol or snacks. Beer is about $5.50, champagne $8 and a cocktail about $16. Not over the top and comparative to home but works out much cheaper if you get it duty free at the airport.
Overall I would definitely recommend the Shangri-La to stay at. We had a great time. So relaxing and nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room in the Golden Cowrie wing if you are a couple.
