My first experience in Fiji was when I came alone and stayed at Sandalwood. Years later I am still coming back, despite staying over much of Fiji, Sandalwood is 'home'. Did not stay here last year, this place is so popular that often, my impulsive bookings find Sandalwood full! So this time I have booked my 2 Fiji trips acc already, ensuring that 'there is room in the Inn'.
I am aware changes are afoot and incredible shoes need to be filled. However, Sandalwood is a well oiled machine and I am sure the staff can do their jobs blindfolded and with hands tied behind their backs. Much of their loyalty I believe is due to the wonderful management/ownership that has been Angela and family - a lesson I am sure some could learn a heck of a lot from.
For the prices, these rooms are SO WELL equipped and spacious, with plenty of power points (now even more necessary for the technology we tend to carry these days). With the Jetpoint Supermarket around the corner, supplies are plentiful and for anyone staying for a while, a trip to Nadi or Namaka Fruit and Veg Market will give you supplies at an excellent price, much more so than the supermarkets. Take a taxi and ask them to wait or take the bus 70c and taxi back if you have a heavy load.
Eateries within walking distance include my new favourite 'Taste Fiji' heading to the airport on the right, the Japanese restaurant in the opposite direction, Tu's place, Anna's (best coffee in town) and The Bounty. In Nadi, Nadi New Farmers Union (behind Tappoos) and Mama's Pizza for when you are famished.
Good luck Sandalwood for the future, I am sure there will be changes but by keeping the fundamentals, I am sure all will be well :) Vinaka for the years of joy you have given me, so far. Oh and see you next month LOL!!!
