“Pleasantly surprised!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Raffles is by no means a luxury accommodation. If you are going to be in Fiji for a reasonable amount of time I would not stay there. However, as an overnight stay when flying in/out of Nadi it is perfect.

The accommodation was spotless. The bed was comfortable. The room was spacious. The public areas are clean and beautifully manicured. Staff was lovely and accommodating. Breakfast was decent (and included). There is a free shuttle to the airport.

Raffles is the perfect airport hotel.

Recently while i was traveling from PNG to Vanuatu with an overnight stay at Raffles, i became seriously ill. I had to have emergency medical attention and i honestly must say that the night staff at the hotel, from the night manager, Mohammed to his assistants helped me get through this ordeal by arranging transport, calling the medical facilities i visited in advance and assisting me when i had to extend my stay for two extra nights, before returning to my home in Japan. Since then i have returned to the hotel 3-4 times and the staff are now family. Thank you for turning an overnight stay hotel into a home far from home.

Room Tip: Avoid some of the standard rooms on the second floor where the window is facing a wall.

This was the perfect hotel for an overnight stay. We got to Nadi early in the morning didn't have our flight to Savusavu till the afternoon. It was just enough for what we needed. Not a luxury place by any means, but a nice welcome to Fiji. I would recommend to have the hotel's number on you when you arrive in Nadi. We were waiting for the hotel transport for quite some time until one of the near by travel agencies offered to called them. The people were very nice and we had a great welcoming to our two weeks journey through the Fijian paradise.

For the last 15 Years I have called Raffles my home base when in Nadi, So have decided to write something about my trips.Over that time the family owned hotel has kept rooms , grounds,and facilitys to a high standard so much so ,that it keeps drawing me back to visit.
Families and singles alike love this place. Children friendly as well..check out the pool slide,pool tables and menu.
However it is people that make it all happen and i would like to acknowledge a few of them during this time that have made everything easy,happy and relaxing during my stays.
Pritika in reservations...flexible,friendly and all correspondance answered in a timely manner.
The front desk Manaina and Vani help with all requests,they are both professional and polite ,they will remember you when you return .
The restaurant serving staff ,Tokasa, Evi, Malinda, Vika,Kolora and Va, lovely people, great to chat with, always with a smile. They will talk with the chef to ensure any variation re your food request is perfect.!!
Voli ,va and Ganesh at the bar ,make great cocktails to perfection. All the beer is iced well and glasses chilled . Their service is special and its always a pleasure to sit at the bar to enjoy, watch the big screen tv ,or the 2 pool tables in action. Ganesh is the best waiter i know. He is a machine!!. Huge smile and walks miles a day around the facility to ensure your drink is always topped up and chilled.
Last but not least the living legends of Raffles, the entertainers, Orisi and Vili. These 2 guys make the whole place come together every night, performing on their guitars, singing beautifully and engaging with restaurant and bar patrons as they perform. These guys are Raffles !!!, i cannot imagine life here without them. They have been performing here for over 15 years. Give them special requests, they love to please.

To all Raffles staff whose names are not mentioned here a Big Bula Vinaka for making my stays the best and always memorable." Come in Raj." Thank you to Raj and Mohamed duty managers ensuring all is always well.

Ni sa Moce Vinaka....till next time

Vincent

Room Tip: Talk with staff at time of booking and at checkin .

Recently stayed at raffles Gateway Hotel for a six hour stopover, the airport shuttle met us and quickly transported us to the hotel. You could walk if you did not have a lot of luggage. The breakfast that we ordered was simple but tasty. We were able to sleep in a comfortable well-kept room for about three and half hours before checking out and going back to the airport for our flights to Brisbane. No bones about it, this hotel is dated, but is very well-kept. The air conditioning worked well and we were all comfortable. The rooms are spotless and free from bugs. We did not have the opportunity to use the pool, but it looked nice and well-kept also. I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms require carrying luggage up stairs.

Who could have thought that a simple airport hotel could be so warm and inviting and a little home from home? You do not feel close to the airport although it is five minutes away. Quiet and cosy.
Great staff and so helpful. I stayed for one night waiting for a connection and was blown away by the positive experience.
The food and bar also commendable.

Room Tip: Go for a room upstairs if possible

We stayed at this hotel for a day after our cruise and before our flight back to the states. From the check in to the check out the staff made you feel wanted. The room was large with three beds, it was very clean and close to the pool, that had a slide similar to the ones on the cruise ships. Open air eatery, with a number of choices. The location can't be beat for people flying in or out of Nadi. Free transportation to the airport. They also have day rooms available.
