“An alternative worth trying out.”
Reviewed February 2, 2010

We booked, read the reviews here and our hearts sunk ... a bit. We decided to give it a go. Friendly staff and value for money.
We paid half of what similar hotels in town were asking through several booking engines that we checked. The difference we saved was more than enough to cover for taxi rides to and from town. Common areas were nicely renovated, bright and absolutely pleasant to spend some time. Even though we had a room in the wing that was not yet refurbished we were not upset about our choice. Our room was definitely not brand new, but it was a spacious one with comfortable beds. Basically we would definitely consider this hotel next time we visit Suva.

I stayed there with my family for a night at Novotel. The hotel is at a convinent location and since the renovation was nearly complete we had a really good time. The kids enjoyed at the pool and later on in the evening had a few drinks at the bar...the bar attendents were very friendly and my toddler enjoyed their company. The room service was just awsome.....so i can say that it was worthy stay with very friendly staff on site. Once again i would love to wish the staff and management all the best for their future.

Thank You

The Novotel Lami Bay is located a F$6.00 cab fare from the heart of Suva. The recent renovations to the rooms in the Suva wing, pool area and restaurant are great. The rooms in the Suva wing aren't large, but are furnished with a KS bed and large screen TV, although the choice of channels is not great. They have great gym with all new equipment. Highly recommended if you have to stay in Suva for business or leisure.

Novotel is a nice and clean place to stay! The hotel is actually a few kilometers away from Suva so if transportation to the city center is not a big problem, I would recommend this hotel! Enjoy the excellent view of Lami bay from the bar at the hotel lobby!

Hotel is situated in a good location... Rooms are getting modernized and it should be good in the coming months.

There is no 24 hours coffee shop which makes it bad as there are no places near by and main city is 20 mins drive.

Policy of internet usage sucks as if you pay for 1 day and logged out, you have to get a new login. I had to keep my laptop on so that it doesnt logs out.

Well above our expectations!

We were really put off the hotel based on the comments on this website about the refurbishment. We ran out of time to find an alternative, so showed up at the hotel with some apprehension.

I have to say we were really impressed. The refurbishment is complete!

The hotel itself is right on the water, although there is no sandy beach. Not sure about swimming in the ocean either, but the pool is right there anyway.

Lami Bay is quite beautiful with moored yachts and picturesque islands. The pool / bar / restaurant area is really nice, tastefully decorated with quality furnishings. There is a laid back atmosphere and lovely cooling breeze. The rooms are a little small, but well appointed.

The food in the restaurant was delicious - the marinated raw fish entree is a must have! The service was a little slow, but hey everyone was on 'island time' anyway.

Definitely recommended.

This Hotel is undergoing MAJOR renovations which were meant to be completed in June. They won't be completed for a few months more I'm sure. Hotel has temporary restaurant/bar, reception desk and no outside pool area. Rooms are scant. Restaurant and beveredge menu is poor. Check to see if renovations are complete before staying. Once it becomes tghe new Novotel, it will be great!!
