It's only fair that I write about our recent holiday, as I spent hours if not days researching The Raddison and others on TripAdvisor.
My Wife and I, and our two children (5yrs,7yrs), had the most relaxing 11 day holiday (9th-19th August) at the Raddison we could have ever wished for!
Yes the pool is certainly the best out of all the resorts within Denarau Island for families. It's a good idea if you pack some beach/pool toys for the kids such as buckets and inflatable toys.The room was far bigger and better then we had wished for.Yes a little mold in the bathroom but I had to go looking for it as I had read about it in earlier reviews.
The different restaurant/food options which were on offer were outstanding. Don't miss happy hour and get your order in at 4pm on the dot,as they can take a while, I guess they're on Fiji time! The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. A beautiful lady called Paulini who works at Blu Restaurant at breakfast was the most wonderful host you have ever met. She greeted us every morning with smiles and cuddles for both our children. A highlight for the kids was the fire lighting ceremony, where they got to dress up as Fijian Warriors and run around the resort on sunset screaming out "Bula!" We did two tours during our stay, one was to Mystery Island which was lovely and the other was the Highland Tour which were both booked via the front tour desk at the resort.The Highland tour (half day) was amazing and at the same time emotional as you visit a Fijian village, and see the real Fiji. What makes this tour so special is the tour company only does one car load (4people) at a time. You get to walk around the village and visit the classrooms where they sing for you, visit their medical centre, wonderful time had by all. Make sure you dine at the Lovo Restaurant at the Westin great night with great entertainment. I think the best way to sum our holiday up is that our 7year old daughter was in tears when we were leaving, as she had a wonderful time during our stay and had made lots of friends through the kids club!
Thanks Raddison for the experience we can't wait to visit again!
