I would go to an island resort. Castaway island resort fantastic for teenagers and parents alike. Otherwise maybe Mana.

There was a good deal for Mana in Sydney's Telegraph yesterday -- 5 nights at Mana, 1 night at Novotel in Nadi, return launch transfers to Mana, full breakfast daily, return airfares ex Sydney (maybe a bit extra from Melb). for A$1409pp.

Also travelonline.com have a lot of specials at the moment.

Agree with the other posts, go to the islands - Castaway, Mana or Plantation would be good. We have just been to Amanuca and had a great time so check that one out as well.

I agree as well. Try Mana.

There was some deals in this weekends Age and Sun to fiji. But there are others out there.

Going from Melboure (assuming you are with your location Victoria), take the midnight flight out which means that you dont have to stay in Nadi for a night, because the direct returns flights are around 4pm. This way it wont matter what island you stay at, you dont have to stay on the mainland if you dont want to (we have always been out to the island resorts by about 1030-11am because of that midnight flight).

Not sure if your 16 & 18 yr old would like plantation that much - lots of younger families.

Castaway is good, but not a lot of deals come up for it and its often a bit more expensive than Mana.

There is a lot to explore at Mana, 3 beaches, couple of pools.

I havent been, but maybe check out Treasure island as well?

Hopefully some help,
