Tanoa Waterfront is set in a lovely quite seaside area of Lautoka The morning walks to see the sunrise were a treat. There are a great variety of birds for bird lovers. . Tanoa is away from the city so you need transportation to go anywhere. There is one restaurant but I did not find it very good. Other restaurants... More

I've stayed at the Tanoa Waterfront quite a bit for business over the last 6 years, and it has evolved from a frankly awful place into a place that I would have no hesitation in recommending. It is convenient to downtown, the new management has put a lot of effort (and no doubt money) into its upgrade, and it is... More

Superb waterfront location with sensational sunsets…Welcome to the Tanoa Waterfront Hotel, Lautoka, Fiji - the preferred Fiji hotel accommodation for the business traveller, conference delegate and holiday maker. This is an excellent stopover point for connections to and from the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands. Lautoka is the second largest city of Fiji and is the second port of entry in Fiji, after Suva. Lying in the heart of Fiji’s sugar cane growing regions, it is known as the Sugar City. It houses the Lautoka Sugar Mill which is the city’s biggest employer by far. From its superb Lautoka waterfront location you can witness sensational sunsets whilst enjoying a refreshing drink or an early dinner in Fins Restaurant. At the Fins Restaurant,we offer a wide range of both local and international fare between 6.30am and 11.30pm. We have 72 well-appointed guest accommodation rooms, each with individually controlled air conditioning for your comfort, and equipped with all guest amenities to suit both the busy executive and discerning leisure traveler.
