If plentiful activities and amazing views sound like your ideal getaway, Amber Cross from Flight Centre Timaru recommends her top resorts for a fabulous Fiji holiday.
SONAISALI ISLAND RESORT FIJI
I'd recommend this resort for families wanting an alternative, cheaper option to Denarau. Very close to the airport, only a 25 minute coach transfer and then a 3 minute boat transfer. The accommodation is of a really high standard; spacious and many with a beach view.
There are lots of activities on site, including fire walking, horse riding and jet skiing. There are also two restaurants and two bars (one a swim-up pool bar). The pool area itself is great, looking out towards the ocean.
UPRISING BEACH RESORT
Located down on Pacific Harbour, this Fiji resort is a 3 hour transfer from Nadi airport but is definitely worth it. The garden bures and villas are very modern and all feature outdoor showers, though only villas offer air conditioning.
The beach is non-tidal, so swimming can be done all day. The pool area is quite small but of a very high standard. There is one restaurant on site, with a nightly themed buffet.
OUTRIGGER ON THE LAGOON
This is a large resort with a real Fijian feel. The bures and thatched roofs combined with island architecture make the property really unique. The day spa area, located up on a hill away from the rest of the resort is absolutely stunning. Golf carts can take guests to and from the day spa. The main pool area is lagoon style, however there is also an adults only bar area and pool area.
A stunning resort only 45 minutes drive from the airport. It's also very large, so golf buggies will take guests to and from rooms. All rooms have an outdoor bath, and club rooms even include a private butler service!
The leisure facilities include a day spa with nine treatment rooms, two pool areas and one infinity pool. There are plenty of dining options available, with evening themed buffets.
