DENARAU ISLAND

Denarau Island

Just a hop, skip and a jump from Nadi Airport (20 minutes, to be more precise), Denarau was once little more than a marina that served as a jumping off spot to the islands. Sure, there was a world-class 18-hole golf course, but if you weren’t into golf, there was little point in sticking around longer than it took for the next ferry to show up.

How times have changed! Nowadays Denarau is home to a range of world-class resorts offering hotel rooms, suites and luxury villas, all with facilities like lagoonstyle pools, fine dining restaurants and spas. Add to this the Denarau Marina shopping centre and you’ve got a great holiday experience.

Of course, you don’t have to sacrifice the classic Fiji Island experience if you stay on Denarau: there are many day trip options available to the nearby Mamanuca Islands as well as romantic sunset dinner cruises available.
