We had 2 fantastic weeks.The Resort might not be 5 Star but to us it is 6 star -all the staff are most friendly and helpful people you would want to meet!! The Lovo dinner,Sunday night dinner and the BBQ dinner were very good and on the other nights Bar meals are available at a cheap price and were delicious.We stayed in unit 25 which is one of the newer apartments -it was very clean ,modern and had a good view from the balcony.
We can had a great time on all the the day trips we did-the Jewel of Fiji,freedive game fishing,the zip,Beqa Island and the fire walking at the Art Centre.Every trip we did we were greeted with a very warm Bula and the biggest smile .Vincent from Focus on Fiji gave us a interesting and informative trip to Suva and then a safe trip to the airport.We can't wait to return.We miss our new friiends.

We found the Fiji Palms a wonderful surprise. It is a 2.5 hr drive from the airport, but it is so well worth it. The resort looked after our transfers to and from the airport, about $170 fj dollars, and it was worth the money and peace of mind. We stayed in the oldest apartments and the room was fantastic, clean and had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem. The happy hour is great, we drank through pretty much the cocktail list and the food at the restaurant was awesome!! We didn't eat anywhere else. We walked to the arts village which had everything, plus had the most amazing massage by 3 gorgeous Fijian women for $50fj dollars..it's a must do. The tour we took..The Jewel of Fiji is a must!! The resorts Lovo Night is also a must! We met some wonderful people staying at the resort which made our stay there even more enjoyable. You do have the more up-market resort next door, but we preferred the cosy relaxed vibe of our resort where you knew most of the guests. We found our stay not that expensive and we will definitely be back!!! Next time we will arrange to have our names carved out and hung in the bar like loads of other guests have done. Was the best holiday ever. Tanya and Dion from Sunshine Coast.

Just returned from our third visit to Fiji Plams. The ideal base to explore the Coral Coast. This time we stayed in the new units, more luxurious with 2 bathrooms, ideal as we were travelling with another couple. Cool spacious air conditioned apartments, set back from the pool and beach, quieter. The older units are good too, closer to the beach & pool, aircond only at night. We chose to self cater for some meals, fruit for breakfast bought from the little fruit stall out the front. Red papayas, sweet pines, bananas with a squeeze of lime juice & freshly grated coconut. A good idea is to bring from home some meal base mixes, eg butter chicken, then buy fresh meat plus veggies to cook at home... Supermarket at the Arts Village is well stocked. Meals are available at the Fiji Palms bar every night, from bar snacks & BBQ to the LOVO, not to be missed! The Pearl resort next door welcomes Fiji Palms residents and the meals are well priced. Say hi to Mela, lovely waitress who welcomed us each time we visited. Don't miss the Sunday session at The Pearl, we heard a brilliant jazz trio & sipped pawpaw daiquiris. Feed the fish at "our" beach, walk to the Uprising for a drink, Enjoy the spa at the Pearl... But most of all talk to the friendly, helpful staff at Fiji Palms. Some have worked there for years, their kids work there now. The boys will bring you coconuts, green or brown. Manager Wendy welcomes everyone and is central to the efficient running of the resort.
If you like to cook, the kitchens are well equipped but bring a good sharp knife. BBQs are clean & work well. You might bring your fave breakfast cereal, coffee, tea, etc, if like us you need your fix! We took our Nespresso machine and enjoyed cappuccinos every day, an indulgence.
Taxis to Suva are reasonable, or catch a local bus for an adventure. Navua is a good close town for groceries, Bula shirts, fabrics, locals' shops.
Take some DVDs or books to read & leave them to build the library if you can.
Plenty of tours & experiences to try, or just relax. The beach is peaceful, deserted, the sea calm.
We love our little piece of paradise.

We stayed for a week on an RCI timeshare exchange for Christmas 2009. Just days before we arrived, Fiji was battered by a terrible cyclone and many areas were still without power and water. When we arrived at the Fiji palms it seemed unaffected by the storm, however many of the employees had lost the homes and all their possessions... and yet they still turned up to work to serve us and were as friendly and welcoming as ever, I don't know how they did it. We had 2, 2 bedroom units as the whole family was there. The units were adequate for what we were looking for. We cooked most nights and use the nice pool and jacuzzi tub quite a lot. Unfortunately the beach was a little damaged by the storm and the water clarity wasn't great, but we mainly utilized the pool and did day trips/tours anyway. We did a deep sea fishing trips and caught several large fish which the Fiji Palms staff cleaned and filleted for us.

All in all we had a fantastic time and the Fiji Palms was the perfect place to stay.

The setting is the saving grace for this well situated property as it is right on a great stretch of very safe beach. Pool and sauna are well appointed. As a very experienced traveler my biggest issue was with the inept office staff. Upon arrival a sullen and arrogant "Farishma" rebuffed my questions about the property with "it's all in the compendium". Over the next two weeks this employee demonstrated the poorest hospitality service I have ever experienced. The older, more tired, units closest to the beach have the A/C units programmed to be off during the hottest part of the day and can only be turned back on by paying an additional daily $10 FJD fee. This seems to exemplify the managaments efforts to nickle and dime visitors looking for a stress free experience. As another example, Mike the assistant manager continued to sell weekly internet ($80 FJD) access to new arrivals despite knowing from existing guests that the Australian server was down. (Free wifi is available at several locations in this area including Breezo's, a geat morning hangout, just across the street.) Farishma later booked a cultural tour for us. She then lied to the tour operator by telling them she had informed us that the customary lunch would not be served that day and that she had placed our receipt saying so, under our room door. I promptly went to the Fiji Palms office and asked to speak to the manager. The receipt Farishma claimed to have slid beneath our door was still in the receipt book and had not even been torn out yet. I explained to Mike, the Assistant Manager, that honest mistakes were more tolerable for a guest than a lack of integrity. Mike replied that Farishma was only 17 years old, new to the job and had already been the subject of numerous complaints from guests as well as local employees. On another morning Farishma pounded on the door until I got up from bed to confirm that I wanted a taxi hired...for the following day! I will save the reader from the long litany of the front office employee drama that transpired during the two weeks I was there but know that it was awful.
On a positive note the housekeeping, security and bar staff were professional and attentive. Pate was especially diligent about guest safety and security while Sam the newest barman exuded the best bula persona.
Other notes: The best massage in Fiji is at the rear of the Arts Village within walking distance (1 1/4 hour massage by up to three practioners simultaneously using great essential oils for $50 FJD!). Also situated in the Arts Village, the Baca Blues restauarant is by far the best culinary experience between Nadi and Suva. Unlike the Pearl and most other ocean view establishments that are banking on the gorgeous setting, Baca Blues wins hands down with a superior mix of cocktails, impeccable service (Yeah Barbara!), great value and food I now crave (the ribs!). We actually ended up going two nights in a row! Two activities worth noting are spending a day on Beqa Island and the Jewel of Fiji river tour.
Caution: the hard sell at Bavari Gifts, taxi drivers with an agenda, "swordsmen" asking your name then carving it on a wooden trinket that they pressure you into buying,

The average Fijian is wonderfully open, hospitable and kind. Please treat them well!

Room Tip: Newer units with better amenities are situated further from the shore than the older quirky beachside units. Though an older unit, room #5, had a large private patio and was close to the pool and beach.
