The Naviti is the ultimate hassle free holiday - we stayed for a week and loved the all inclusive package and not having to worry about money. We have returned home feeling totally relaxed. We enjoyed just about everything about our stay especially the beach, the pool, easy access to the golf course, snorkelling tour from the neighbouring village and watching the sunset from the deck each night. Overall we found the food to be excellent - the themed buffet nights were enjoyable especially the local Fijian Lovo night and the A La Carte at the Talei restaurant was very enjoyable -the Octopus, Russian Blinis and Chocolate Brownies at the Talei were awesome. The staff at both restaurants were fantastic and chefs to be commended. The Bamboo Terrace menu options were a bit limited for the all inclusive guests and the main meal we had there wasn't great so they need a bit more menu choice at that particular restaurant. The only disappointment with food was the New Zealand icecream which was runny and not included in the all inclusive package.
The package included a shopping trip to neighbouring village Sigatoka which gave us a chance to pick up souveneirs for family at a better price than those available at the resort shop. We also enjoyed the included sunset cruise with wine and taster platter.
If you want to play golf - bring your own golf balls from home - then by not buying balls there it only cost $25FJ for a round with club hire and pull cart (walking is better than hiring a buggy - it's cheaper and you can work off all the Fiji Bitter)- about $14 Australian which is much cheaper than anything you can get at home - and make the most of it by playing 18 instead of 9 (they don't seem to care if you go around twice and it didn't cost any extra) - it is only a short course and 18 only takes 2 hours for one player.
Also as noted by previous reviewers it is a long way from Nadi airport - 90kms which took almost 3 hours on the way there (driver missed a hotel drop off and had to go back) and 2 hours on the way back - be prepared and have a large bottle of water and some snacks for the drive. Having said that the drive would not put us off coming again - it is definitely worth it. Coming from Brisbane we flew with Pacific Blue and this is the way to go - their flights are cheaper than the others and the arrival and departure times are very convenient - no early morning wake up calls required - some people we talked to had to get upat 4.15 am for their flight home. Given the length of the drive I wouldn't recommend a 4 night package - it isn't enough time to relax - you need a week to 10 days.
Overall we absolutely loved the place and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Bar staff were fantastic ready to top up drinks when needed. The gardens are beautiful and they have a whole team of people dedicated to making the place look great - and it shows. We didn't want to come home which is definitely a sign of a great holiday.
