This was our first trip to Fiji.
Two words to sum it up
Simple and Easy.
We stayed 8 nights July 22-29. Our flight from Auckland was just 2.5hrs, fabulous with two kids, 5 & 4.
The bure is very large, huge super king bed and two day beds. Beautiful ceiling covered in Tapas.
We had an Ocean view great location to everything. The larger the number the further away you are but only having 66 Bures means it is never too far.
The kids club is great, it is open 9-12, 2-4, 7-10pm.
They even care for small babies.
Most parents took the kids to dinner at 5.30 then took them to kids club at 7pm they had the most fun at this time, lots of games, and then the parents went of a romantic dinner for two.
Definitely have the Meal plan, this enables you to eat at all the 5 outlets.
Sundowner have superb pizza, thank you James. Enjoy Happy Hour with a cocktail and watch the sun go down.
Restaurant 1808 is a must, reserve the day before only 50 seats.
Definitely try the Mongolian lunch, cooked on the beach, Thank you Derwendra.
Good Latte, thank you Poni
Great staff; Ratu, Jerry, Niko, Atu, Alisi
Lucy was the best housekeeper compared to the others, thank you Lucy
You only have to walk two steps into the ocean and the fish are swimming around you!
Tip;Buy a crate of beer and some wine at the marina before you get on the boat, so cheap.
We will return
We stayed at Sofitel on our way home but it was a no comparison so give Denerau a miss.
