After a little advice from the Fiji regulars or those who have stayed at FL before heading out to the islands from Port Denarau. Planning a 4th trip back to Fiji with hubby (travelling with our 2 boys aged 5 & 1) and I've always wanted to check out First Landing. However, as it's worked out with flights, we will only have 1 night pre and post heading out to BLBR for 7 nights.
We have previously stayed at resorts in Denarau (but are after more down to earth, authentic accommodation this time). Also have stayed overnight at Raffles which we enjoyed but would just like to try somewhere new with a relaxed vibe to kick off our holiday. Our flight gets in from Brisbane at 4:50pm on a friday.
Obviously being that bit further away I'm concerned about the next morning being too rushed with the kids. Does anyone know FL's options for an early breakfast? Or would you jump in the cab that bit earlier and have breakfast at the port after checking in to the flyer (or is it even safe to leave your bags once they are checked in)?
Interested to hear some opinions. Am I just making things too difficult considering we are travelling with the kids, or is the extra distance worth it for an enjoyable first night & dinner at the restaurant?
Many thanks for any advice you can give.
