We stayed at The Sofitel, Denarau Island for a friends wedding and it was a GREAT holiday. Very relaxing - staff are brilliant and I loved "Fiji Time!"
The rooms are very nice with the aircon an absolute bliss however the bathrooms need a refurb - I don't like showers over baths (minor complaint).
As for the wedding; it was fantastic and the the buffet dinner was the best I have ever had at a wedding!

We travelled as a family ( one 4 year old) and this was only a stop over. Parts of the resort are lovely, the grounds, the pool, the staff, however the room we stayed in , although quite large, had a bathroom that leaked water from the shower under the door and into the main room?? The solution....they delivered more towels! The food was good. A nice place to stay for one night, central to everything, however, if i were to spend more time in Denarau, I would choose the Sheraton

My husband and I have recently returned from a 5 day stay at the Sofitel Denarau Fiji and I can honestly say with huge disappointment we will NEVER return. The room was pleasant enough albeit small. The bed comfy and that's where the pleasure stops. We had cocktails in the breeze bar at Happy hour and when I took our piña coladas back to the bar and mentioned they were bland, I was told that happy hour piña coladas don't have white rum or Malibu in them so I was annoyed that we had been served pineapple smoothies pretending to be cocktails. Infuriating when it's $25 FJD for two and then another 25 % surcharge because it was Melbourne cup day. This I couldn't believe being that we were holidaying in Fiji and was told this when we were given the bill. The food at breakfast was ok but most of the hot dishes were empty and by the time these were eventually topped up other food on my plate was cold. There wasn't any bread left other than one slice with a big black hair through it. The weather was fabulous the Fijian people gorgeous but service was inept mainly due to the company policies employed! Shame on you Accor Group!

Room Tip: If your couple and require quiet and a lovely ocean view then the chapel wing is a good choice.

Spent 6 nights at Sofitel. Loved it, good breakfast, clean, huge pool, good service, large grounds. Personally if need to stay in Denarau would choose it again. Was contemplating against Radisson Blu which also looked good, but did not like Radisson’s appeal - main restaurant buffer stile too close to the lobby so can hear plats banging and the smell of the food, too noisy.
Sofitel also is walking distance from Marina - 10 min.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms, luxury rooms

A great resort for a conference. The grounds are beautiful and immaculately maintained, and the free form pool is a delight. I was in a garden room which was spacious and had a walk-in wardrobe. The staff are clearly adept at catering for large groups. The wifi connection is easy and reliable, with a free (low speed) option and faster (but still cheap) alternatives. The lagoon restaurant gets busy with families but there are other dining options, including a French-inspired cafe. Espresso coffee (including decaf) is available throughout. The food is surprisingly good quality compared to other locations in the Pacific. There are a few shops on site which were good for last minute presents. The port is a short, easy walk away and has shops and restaurants.

The Sofitel and its staff represent a great place to stay anytime except rainy season...I have been coming to this hotel now for a number of years and still do not tire of it and its environs. Excellent food choices...
