Bula! Nadi Club Fiji Resort is soOo good. This is going to be a really long winded review but bear with me at least you'll know its a good place and here's why. I spent my 21st birthday there with my lovely boyfriend Sam (if it matters I'm of Philippine descent and Sam is caucasian). I know its summer in Melbourne when we left but the sun in Fiji feels softer on your skin as well as humid since we came in rainy season. We stayed 5nights and the staff were very polite. Mere always has a pretty smile on her face at the reception and Miri is always kind when we ordered breakfast. Tonga is very bubbly and fun to hang out with at the bar and Kuki too (I apologize if I have spelt your names incorrectly). There are a lot of things to do at Club Fiji. Heral took us out snorkeling (which is free) and I was like a cat in water and wanted to hop right back in the boat. He also helped us grab a kayack for two into the beach but if you're like Sam and I and don't play well with the other kids, they also have separate kayacks for just one person. Its my first time kayaking and snorkeling so don't be afraid to try it (it's also free here!). The rooms are spacious and I was a bit anxious when I read the bad reviews and then when we arrived we thought people complained a little too much. To each their own I suppose. I'm not a fussy girl and I enjoy seeing the frogs at night and the birds flying about. I found one cockroach but I let him in and then let him back out. There also geckos or lizards I'm not sure what but they're very cute and run away when you get too close so don't worry about the animals if you're scared of them, they'll probably be more scared of you. If you pay the resort $5 FJD you can get a ride (there and back total) for a strict time into town but it's cheaper than a taxi which would cost you about $30 FJD return. The food at the club is a little expensive for us because we're only students finishing our degrees and have lived off our scholarship money and savings to come here and relax. The food is really good though in my opinion, so don't think its gone to waste (I ordered the same pizza from JBs three times in 6days!). If you go into town I suggest you stock up on cold drinks since you have a fridge or at least we had a fridge and a hair dryer. We also had a couch, a big chair, a wardrobe, tall mirror, ceiling fan and a separate fan, and there's a separate bathroom in your room - my point is once I spent $80 AUD to stay in the city in Melbourne for a night and all I got was a bulb, four walls (no window) and a bed, in other words a very claustrophobic room. Anyways town is nice but watch out for cars and try to be stern with people who tell you to get into their shop. Almost everyone is pushy about selling but I guess we do that too but in a different less aggressive way although I did like the haggling experience. A trick is to go at the lowest possible price and then settle for what you think is appropriate. One shop guilted us into having kava and a small welcoming ceremony in their shop. We were told we were pretty much ripped off but I think I liked being welcomed like that. They didn't push for us to buy anything either but we would've given them money just for the drink of kava and showing me how to wear a sarong. They have a pool and hammocks at the club. I spent most of my time reading novels in the hammocks because I am a very lazy person. If you're bored though the reception can help you organize activities to do. Some at the resort are free but you can book other stuff like a mud bath and walking around the sleeping giant at a price which includes your transport and such. Our driver, Singh was very nice, funny and patient when Sam and I took a tour around the sleeping giant and the mud bath. I wanted to mention that the people staying at the resort at the same time as us were also really friendly people (I'm scared of racism) which made my stay even better. I didn't even get yelled at when I caused a fire hazard as I decided I wanted to light 21 small candles shoved in a slice of chocolate cake on the night of my birthday but Sam didn't know he got trick-relighting candles and we just kept blowing and blowing. It's something to laugh at though. My point is the staff is really nice. We might come back on our honeymoon one day. I really love it here. Vinaka Club Fiji Resort!
