“Awesome Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

This was our third stay at Sofitel Hotel in Denarau. Everything was great. The rooms were comfortable (except for the smell of janola in the room when we first checked in).
Breakfast was excellent. Only advice I would give the hotel in relation to breakfast is to cater to vegetarian guests. We did not eat meat/fish but ate eggs. At the egg counter, our omelettes were made in the same frying pan as the omelettes with ham. Even the same spoons were used. This was gross.
The Salt restaurant was good except for the lack of vegetarian options. If you stay for 4 nights, sometimes eating at the same place can get boring. The hotel should invest in another restaurant (maybe with asian flavors) which can cater a little bit more to vegetarian guests.

Otherwise everything else was great.

I stay in the Sofitel one night in April. This hotel looks ideal for families as many activities and kids around. For couple and to have like more intimate vacations, this hotel is too big and don't offer intimacy.
Staff very nice, food ok. Some renovation has been done in the room but the bathroom are really tired. You have what you pay for so it has a good value.

We stayed at the Sofitel for a week and could not fault it. The welcome was fantastic and put us all in the mood for a great holiday. Most of our meals were eaten at Salt because it was such a superb setting with a great menu. Who wouldn't want to sit in an open air restaurant in the warmth sipping cocktails and gazing out over the water. It was exactly as the brochures depicted. Breakfasts were great as there were plenty of gluten free options available, which is normally a problem when travelling. We had requested a room away from the pool as Trip advisor had noted the noise associated with the children, and it was good advice. Our rooms were very comfortable and quiet. The pool is fantastic with plenty of shade to relax, which is a good thing as the beaches are the dark sand and very coarse. Not good for swimming or snorkelling, but it is only a short boat ride if that is waqnt you want in your holiday. Accor Advantage card a neccessity as the prices are a little high for Fiji. Overall a great holiday and would love to go back and take the grand children as they would love it.

Room Tip: With children downstairs and close to the pool, couples only upstairs and in one of the outer wings...

Sofitel Denarau lives up to expectations . Best swimming pool in Fiji. Rooms large and beds very comfortable. Buffet breakfasts and themed dinners good value if you have an Accor Advantage Plus Card otherwise a trifle expensive. Staff friendly and efficient.
Could do with a bit more nightly entertainment.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms upstairs facing the wedding chapel.

Amazing location, food & service. Friendly staff and the room smelt great. The buffet breakfast was amazing. the only bad thing about our stay was the price was a bit pricey for us as were still students but apart from that was worth every penny! overall it Was an enjoyable stay and me and my partner will be back!
Great for families or couples

We have just returned from 10 days at Sofitel. We had a great time, fabulous weather, met some great people and ate out every night at the Sofitel restaurants. We had a 6yr old so needed great pool and got one. It had really good waterslide our daughter was on for hours every day so value in that alone as two parents sat on chairs pool side and watched sipping drinks! Very relaxing. Being Accor member really saved on food bill over $1000 Au so recommend joining. Went on Bula Bus to Port Denaru and found indoor kids club with air/con, coffee and free wifi. My wife orgnised airport transfer pickup which was great idea and cheap $30A for 10-15min ride to hotel. Our same driver, Osea took us later on Village tour to traditional village life. Very hot and humid so take hat, plenty of sunscreen, apply regularly and hydrate. Tried all resorts that are grouped in Denarau for either happy hour or snacks from Wyndham, Westin, Radisson, Sheraton to Hilton. My daughter told me to say she had a bad experience cutting her toe on a rock at their beach, but thats not Sofitels fault. Island daytrip to get out and see white sands and crystal blue waters is essential and we will do next year when we go back. Remember you are on Fiji time not Australian time so be patient. Thanks Sofitel for great stay. Bula Venaka!!

My family & I had the recent pleasure of staying at the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa. From the very moment we arrived the warm welcome was like nothing we had ever experienced. Without exception every employee we came into contact with throughout our stay was genuine, friendly & uplifting. Australian hospitality has so much to learn from the Fijiian people. It was wonderful to see the General Manager visible every day, spending time with the guests and the staff and personally getting involved.
The hotel itself was beautiful, from the rooms to the outlets to the amazing pool and surrounds. All the little details are thought of and nothing is too much trouble.
Particular mention must go to the "activities" team. If you are travelling with children, these guys really do make your holiday special. Our thanks go to Eddie who was an absolute super star!
We cannot wait to return - it will without doubt become our regular holiday destination!
