Radisson Blu Resort Fiji Denarau Island
Ranked #1 of 8 Hotels in Denarau Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Room clean, staff friendly but lazy, food & beverage expensive. Focused on children not adults. Pools could be cooler & cleaner. Pool bar should be in adults only pool not children's. Beds not made well - sheet does not cover mattress protector. Room was not configured as requested. Baggage did not arrive within an hour & had to request it be sent up. Adults placed in room next to children's centre - came to relax not hearing screaming all day. This is not a 5 star resort in comparison to many around the world - classed as 4 star at best. To improve staff could start with a better introduction to resort facilities, offer information on local amenities, personalized service & 5 star style facilities.

While admittedly The Radisson Blu on Denarau does not really give you the real experience of what Fiji is like (a trip to the local schools or along to Nadi through the streets gives you a much better idea), it is an excellent place to stay.
The staff are so friendly, can't do enough to help you and welcoming at all times.
The conference facilities are excellent, as was the catering.
My only issue would be the noise levels during the day with cleaning, gardening and other maintenance which made hearing the presenters difficult at times.

Dear jotakesabreak

I'm pleased that your time with us as a conference delegate was so enjoyable and that you were welcomed warmly by our staff. Making "work" as enjoyable as possible is always our aim with conferences and I'm glad that we succeeded.

I do take note of the issue regarding noise levels and will ensure that this easy-to-fix situation does not arise again. Apologies as external noise can be distracting and a little frustrating.

I do hope that you managed a little R & R while you were here - if not, that would be the ideal excuse to return once again to Radisson Blu and let us pamper you!

Kind Regards and Vinaka Vakalevu for your comments.

We had been driving in New Zealand over a week so this was a great place to relax. The room was great with a balcony. I cannot say enough about how gracious and helpful the staff of this hotel was, they truly try hard and want to please. The pools were very clean and attractive. We did not think the food was better than average. This is a clean and well run property. Stay here if you can!

Room Tip: I would not want a room on the bottom near the pool just because of the traffic and noise from kids...

We can't say enough kind words about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. We found everything to be perfect---we have stayed at other resorts in the area and nothing can compare. We even got help weighing our bags to be sure we were going to be under the limit! This is a family friendly resort but provisions are made for those not wanting this environment.

Room Tip: We had two different rooms and recommend the 3rd floor, nearer to the beach and garden side if you a...

Warm greetings from the team at Radisson Blu! Thanks for taking time to write a review about our lovely property here on Denarau - we appreciate it.

It is pleasing to read that you found our team to be so friendly and accommodating. Sometimes it's the little gestures that really matter, such as assistance with weighing your bags. We are very proud of our staff and I always communicate the Tripadvisor comments we receive through all mployee meetings, department meetings etc.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the future hopefully and in the meantime

Kind Regards

We had a flight from Melbourne to SF with a 15 hours layover in Fiji so we decide to get a room and rest up a little and enjoy the beach. I called a few hotels and it's pretty hard to get a day room as regular check in and check out is 2:00 or 3:00 pm and check out at 12:00 or so making this a bit challenging since we were arriving in Fiji at 6:00 am and wanted to take a nice nap. After on the phone with them for a while, they finally agreed.

We arrived at the hotel and everyone is supper nice greeting us and looking as they really enjoyed their job and wanting to help. Fijians are known for being super nice and they did not disappoint. Our room was ready around 8:30 but they treated us with some coffee, pastry and fresh fruits which was nice.

The room was very nice and super clean with everything that you needed. My only small complaint was that we could not use the sitting area outside the room in the beautiful garden as there was a loud machinery running the whole time.

We used the restaurant for breakfast and lunch and the food was decent. Make sure you take a ride to the marina for some interesting shops.

Room Tip: our room was 143 and was quit inside as long as the doors were shut

I'm pleased that we were able to accommodate your request for a day room here at Radisson Blu, and that you enjoyed your very short stay. Perhaps next time you may consider a longer vacation in Fiji and a lengthier time with us! Glad our team were super friendly and looked after you well.

Have just returned home from a 7 night stay (1st time to Fiji) with my wife and two kids (6&3), booked through Holiday Specialists.
What a wonderful place to visit and a fantastic resort to stay, searched long and hard & read many reviews on the Radisson and so happy with our choice.

Introduced 6 yr old to kids club & could not pry her away from her new friends and carers at the end of each day, loved the warrior dress up and torch lighting each evening, frog / lizard hunting, the pool and slide, so many activities run by loving and caring locals (bula to Alice, Harry Bannana, Elmo Bannana and the activities crew).
Ventured away from the resort a few times to the Marina, Nadi town, and had a memorable visit to Nawaka Primary School (highly recommend).

Breakfast every morning at Blu Restaurant, lunch and dinner at Blu, Water Court, Neptunes; Mamacita at Wyndam next door, Feast & Flying Fish at the Sheraton (pick of them all).
Try the Toblerone cocktail at Blu!

Stayed in a 1bd garden view suite, clean and comfortable, and serviced daily.
Loved our holiday, loved Fiji and its people, loved the Radisson, and will be back one day to experience it all again.
VINAKA- Andrew, Marie, Maddi and Thomas Bannana :)

Bula Luffdog ( or should I call you the Banana family!)

It's great to be described as a "home away from home" - I'm so pleased that you were made to feel welcome by everyone and that your children truly enjoyed our Kids Club and the Bananas!

It was fantastic to read that a highlight was your visit to Nawaka Primary - it is always our pleasure to take guests for an amazing taste of the "real Fiji". Don't forget to "like" our Facebook page Radisson Blu Fiji Adopt a School!

On behalf of the team here at Radisson Blu we thank you for choosing to stay with us and would love to see you return one day.
