General Information House of Travel Accommodation Ratings To assist with the selection of your accommodation we have created our own rating system allowing you to compare each property. These are personal ratings offered by our people from their own experience and should therefore be used as a guide only. These ratings may alter throughout the year due to a change of circumstances. Standard rooms, clean and comfortable usually with basic furnishings and private ensuites. Typically most properties would include a restaurant and bar but have a limited range of other guest facilities and services. Moderate accommodation with a reasonable range of room facilities and good level of comfort usually with a wide range of recreational and leisure activities available for guest enjoyment. Superior accommodation offering exceptional level of comfort in rooms with quality furnishings and fixtures. There tends to be greater attention to personalised service and strong focus on quality food and beverages. First class accommodation including small and stylish boutique properties. Accommodation in this rating offer the very best services with detailed focus on high customer satisfaction and are usually located in prime locations. They are considered the ultimate accommodation in Fiji

1

Grading accommodation can be quite subjective and generally speaking the standard and services will be in line with the price paid. Please check with your House Of Travel specialist to ensure you get the accommodation that best fits your needs. Front Cover: © Chris McLennan, Jean-MIchel Cousteau Resort Fiji


Experience Fiji

© Treasure Island Resort

The sun overhead is beaming down from a cloudless blue sky, a gentle breeze is rippling the sparkling warm water and your second piña colada is lulling you into a gentle doze. There’s a faint scent of frangipani blossom in the air, and your only concern is whether you can get away with possibly having fresh fish for dinner one more time without turning into one yourself.

Fast Facts

It’s all so clichéd, isn’t it... but the funny thing about clichés is that they’re accurate, and Fiji is indeed a cliché in all the best ways. The water really does sparkle when that tropical sun is shining, and it really is that easy to slip into a daily routine that requires very little grey matter. We’re so spoilt that these are the things we take for granted on a Fijian holiday. What makes a holiday in Fiji truly special, however, are the unexpected moments: watching your kids playing with their new Fijian friends on a visit to a local village, the sticky feel of fresh mango juice running down your chin at a roadside stall, the sudden stop to allow chickens and cows to enforce their right of way over buses and trucks – these are the experiences that truly add colour to your holiday. Get out of your resort and venture a little further afield – try the local cuisine, trawl the shops in Nadi, hire a car and explore the coastline. Whether it’s your first visit or just your first this year, if you keep your eyes and heart open, Fiji will reward you with a holiday that’s everything you expected and so much more.

Nadi & Surrounds Chances are you’ve always thought of Nadi as nothing more than the place where planes come and go, and where you’re occasionally required to spend a night before transferring to somewhere more salubrious – certainly not a destination in its own right. Maybe it’s time you had a closer look. Nadi Town itself is a buzzing hive of colourful shops and restaurants – the perfect place to pick up souvenirs, presents for the folks at home (locallymade coconut skincare products are always a big hit) or supplies for your holiday (fruit so fresh it’s practically still growing!). Just 20 minutes from all the world-class facilities of Denarau Island (think golf, tennis, spa treatments...), and Denarau Marina (island visits, diving trips, snorkelling trips), Nadi makes a great base for short stays – well worth spending an extra night or two.

Our favourite things to see & do •

3

GARDEN OF THE SLEEPING GIANT – Tucked beneath the foothills of the Sabeto mountain range and just a 10 minute drive from Nadi, these popular gardens boast dozens of varieties of colourful orchids amid a sea of tropical vegetation. There’s a network of walking tracks, lily ponds & great picnic spots for you to enjoy. SRI SIVA SUBRAMANIYA SWAMI TEMPLE – On the outskirts of Nadi Town, this is a tranquil spot to reflect or just chill out for a while. The temple is decorated with carved wooden deities all the way from India. Visitors are welcome as long as they’re dressed modestly and haven’t consumed alcohol or meat that day. NADI MARKETS – On offer is a wide variety of fruit, vegetables and other produce and one whole section of the market is dedicated to kava only. This is a great place to stock up for that picnic. The Fijian pineapples are especially worth sampling and are quite a bit smaller but much sweeter than other pineapples. ED’S BAR – Ed’s is a bit of an institution with a personality all of its own. Most nights it lures a buzzing and mixed crowd of tourists, locals and expats. It’s more than just a watering hole though – they have live bands and there’s a small restaurant attached.

DENARAU MARINA – Just a 20 minute drive from Nadi, the marina is the main departure point for half and full day cruises to the beautiful Mamanuca Islands. Most times it’s a hive of activity, so if you’re heading out on one of the half or full day island cruises, plan to be at the Marina in good time.

KOROYANITU NATIONAL HERITAGE PARK – A great place to head for if you’re a keen hiker or nature lover, with beautiful walks through native forests & grasslands. You’ll see plenty of birds, archaeological sites & waterfalls.

Try your skills at some fresh fruit bargaining and pick up at the local ma rket.

On-site facilities include a tropical swimming pool, alfresco wining and dining on the poolside deck at Rokete Restaurant, or sipping a cool cocktail from the bar.

Located just across the road from Nadi International Airport and only 8 kms from Nadi, this is an ideal stopping off point for those travelling to one of the `outer’ islands. Why not stay a while longer though and explore Nadi and its surrounding attractions? Having undergone a recent refurbishment, this airport favourite is now even better than ever and provides the perfect setting in which to either start or end your Fijian holiday experience. With stunning gardens and sweeping vistas what more could you ask for?

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 at least six world-class resorts, all with facilities like lagoon-style pools, fine dining restaurants and spas. Add to this the Denarau Marina shopping centre and you’ve got a great self-contained holiday experience. Of course, you don’t have to sacrifice the classic Fiji island experience if you stay on Denarau: take a day trip to one of the nearby islands or enjoy a romantic sunset dinner cruise.

Our favourite things to see & do •

GOLF & TENNIS – Denarau’s home to an impressive 18hole championship golf course where bunkers are in the shape of sea creatures. With water challenges on 15 of the 18 holes, it’s sure to test your skills and patience. There’s also a dozen synthetic and natural grass tennis courts that offer both day and night options.

VISEISEI VILLAGE – About a ½ hour drive from Denarau is Viseisei Village, which according to local lore is the oldest settlement in Fiji. The village is worth a visit. To have a look around, you’ll need to pay about F$3 to the ladies who run the tiny craft market at the village, and remember to remove your hat and wear something that covers your shoulders and knees.

5

DENARAU SHOPPING CENTRE – Definitely worth a visit. The centre features shops offering beachwear and clothing, souvenirs, convenience stores, a post office and bank, a hot bread shop, a pharmacy and beauty therapy centre. It also features some bars and restaurants serving up Italian and Indian cuisine, Fiji’s first Hard Rock Cafe, and Cardo’s which serves up great steaks. There’s also roving entertainment and evening cultural performances that add to the flavour!

Coral Coast It’s early evening. The thumping of drums signals the traditional kava ceremony is about to start. This morning you went horseriding on an almost-deserted beach, and this afternoon you watched tiny tropical fish giving their best Nemo impersonations. If you were a golfer you’d spend tomorrow at the world-class Natadola Golf Course or instead opt for sand-surfing at the Sigatoka Sand Dunes. That’s the beauty of the Coral Coast – there’s so much on offer for every type of holiday, from the most active to the extremely sedate. Of course, a great holiday isn’t just about life in a bubble - hire a car and take your time, stop for fresh watermelon at a roadside stall, and return the friendly "Bula" offered by every local along the way. By the time you arrive at your resort, you’ll be well and truly on Fiji time.

Our favourite things to see & do •

SIGATOKA TOWN – This colourful town tucked into green and fertile surrounds near the mouth of the Sigatoka River makes for a pleasant amble. There’s a produce market, a few souvenir shops and a large hilltop mosque here, but largely it acts as a service town for the Coral Coast region. Taxis galore populate the street so you shouldn’t have any difficulty getting from A to B. SIGATOKA SAND DUNES – One of Fiji’s natural highlights. The dunes are quite spectacular and a great place to stretch out. On a hot day visit before 11.00am or after 3.00pm and allow about one hour for the walking tour. KULA ECO PARK – This wildlife sanctuary is a must for fans of the furred, feathered and scaled. See the hawksbill sea turtles being hand fed, and see collared parrots, falcons, fruit bats and more! The park runs a number of invaluable breeding programmes.

HORSE RIDING ALONG NATADOLA BEACH – The local villagers offer horse riding (about F$10 per person) along the spectacular white sands of Natadola Beach. You might even get time for a dip here but take care as the currents and undertow can be dangerous at times.

CORAL COAST SCENIC RAILWAY – The station is at the entrance to the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort. It offers scenic rides on an old diesel sugar train, past villages and sugar plantations to Natadola Beach. The train leaves at 10.00am returning at around 4.00pm – a trip of just over one hour each way, so you get time to swim and relax and enjoy a barbecue lunch.

KALEVU CULTURAL CENTRE – Located close to the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort. The centre is based around a Fijian Village featuring cultural dancing, kava ceremonies, handicrafts and cooking. Also on-site is Bernies Bar & Gecko Restaurant that cooks up great steaks and fish curries.

Fiji Islands Imagine a tropical island where there’s fun for the entire family: fun kids clubs, great food. Doesn’t appeal? What about a boutique luxury island haven with enough beaches for you to have one to yourself? A little beyond your price range? Then how about cheerful dormitorystyle accommodation or a traditional thatched bure? Of course, 1500 kilometres of white sand beaches aren’t the only attraction: there are also coral gardens, turtles to feed and a wide variety of watersports. Or just kick back and enjoy yourself. As remote as some of these islands are, getting there doesn’t have to be an allday experience (unless you want it to be). Opt for a seaplane or even a helicopter and you’ll realise that getting there is easy – it’s leaving that’s difficult!

Our favourite things to see & do •

DIVING AND SNORKELLING – The island resorts are popular with divers. With great dive spots literally on your doorstep, this means you can get into some serious diving very quickly. Many of the island resorts have their own dive operators. Even if you’ve never experienced scuba diving before, there are introductory courses offered by most resorts that will allow you to do so. General snorkelling is safe and fun just off the beach.

FISHING – The deep passages around the Malolo Barrier Reef provide exciting places to fish. Fish include wahoo, sail fish, barracuda, giant trevally, tuna and mahimahi (a strong fighting fish & delicious to eat). Many of the resorts offer fishing as part of their activities menu.

ISLAND HOPPING – Many of the island resorts offer island hopping safaris giving you an opportunity to see other island resorts en route. You’ll blast across beautiful lagoons from island to island where you’ll get the chance to go ashore and enjoy. A number of the island safaris include a delicious champagne picnic lunch on the way.

SURFING – There are some fantastic surf breaks found along the southern part of the Malolo Barrier Reef in the Mamanuca Islands including Wilkes & Cloudbreak. Many of the island resorts can cater for that secret surf addiction, so why not sneak away for a bit of "me time" and surf at some of the best surf spots in Fiji.

Where your very own dedicated personal concierge will make sure no details are missed but in a very unobtrusive way, so that your exotic retreat will be as private as you want but will long be remembered. Envisage a champagne sunrise breakfast for the two of you under the bougainvillea of your own private verandah, a sumptuous gourmet picnic on an isolated island complete with fine wine, or a wonderfully romantic dinner for two on your own private jetty under a starlit sky, relaxing to the rhythmic sounds of the lapping waters in a hammock, or just sinking into a deck chair on the water’s edge marvelling at the beauty around you. Walk barefoot along picture-perfect white sand beaches, take a refreshing swim in crystal clear waters, and snorkel on vividly coloured corals. Then completely immerse yourself in the peace and tranquillity of a soothing massage on the beachfront. Friendly Fijian staff will greet you by name and you’ll experience their warmth, hospitality and wonderful traditions. This is the life at our exclusive resorts, which occupy some of the most secluded and pristine locations of the South Pacific.

Pacific Coast You knew Fijian hospitality was something special, but you weren’t expecting someone to literally walk over white-hot stones for you. The legendary firewalkers of Beqa Island are just one of the eye opening attractions you’ll experience in Pacific Harbour, two hours east of Nadi. You can tour a traditional Fijian village by boat and see fearsome warriors battle for their lives at the Cultural Centre, and enjoy singing, dancing and storytelling at the Arts Village. Raft through deep gorges amid lush rainforest, surf world-famous reef breaks and try gamefishing. For downtime flop on a beautiful sandy beach and contemplate a round on an 18-hole golf course, considered one of the best in Fiji. Pacific Harbour is referred to as Fiji’s adventure capital – you’re just relieved there’s been ample excitement without following in the footsteps of those firewalkers!

Our favourite things to see & do •

BEQA LAGOON – Just off-shore from Pacific Harbour, it’s world-famous for its spectacular soft corals. You’ll see schools of reef fish here and the occasional shark investigating nooks and crannies.

FIRE WALKING – Watch in awe as men from local Beqa Island pluck up enough courage to walk barefoot on white hot stones. No need to make the trip out to Beqa Island though, as the firewalkers perform in the different hotels in the region.

YANUCA ISLAND – Located in Beqa Lagoon, this compact and beautiful lush island is known for its lovely beaches and the world class surf breaks at Frigate’s Passage, just a short boat haul away – for the serious surfer!

FISHING – Fishing at Beqa Lagoon is great for everyone, year round. Troll for the adrenaline rush and experience the thrill of fighting with a yellow fin tuna. There’s a number of charter operators with big fast boats and excellent equipment ensuring your hunt is a successful one!

RAFTING DOWN THE NAVUA RIVER – Become a local and enjoy a smooth thrilling ride down the Navua River on a bilibili raft (HMS Bilibili). Raft past villages, farm lands, pristine tropical rainforests, deep gorges and canyons, meandering rapids and cascading waterfalls. This is the way to discover and enjoy Fijian culture at its best! THE ARTS VILLAGE – Watch Fijian actors dressed in traditional attire carry out mock battles, and there’s also firewalking and meke shows. The village located at Pacific Harbour is definitely worth a visit, and attached to the Arts Village are some eateries and souvenir shops, a pleasant spot to spend an hour or so.

This guided tour takes you to Fiji’s capital, Suva, where you’ll learn about its rich colonial past and gain a fresh insight into the city. You’ll see the President’s residence, Albert Park (where Kingsford – Smith landed his aircraft on his epic flight from USA to Australia in 1928) and stroll through Thurston Botanical Gardens. Visit the museum, experience the bustling markets, enjoy the shopping and restaurants and see why Suva’s more than just the capital.

Adrenalin seekers can soar through a 200 metre long line at speeds of up to 60 km per hour from platforms as high as 45 metres. Definitely not for the faint hearted, this rainforest activity should help clear butterflies from the stomachs of those with a fear of heights.

Fiji’s North The pace of life in Fiji is seldom hectic, but in the northern islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni, you’ll find that life becomes even more relaxed. These islands are just an hour’s flight from Nadi or Suva, but as you explore the shops and historic waterfront of Savusavu, you’ll feel as though you’ve taken a trip back in time. The region is also the home of Fiji’s eco-tourism movement, which means you’ll find small resorts that endeavour to combine tranquillity and luxury with ecological values. From the way the resorts are constructed to the educational nature of their kids clubs, the whole family will come away with a new appreciation for this amazing environment, and the marine sanctuaries that have been established ensure that the snorkelling and diving is just as fabulous as the fishing.

Our favourite things to see & do •

SAVUSAVU TOWN – Not too long ago Savusavu was a small and dusty peninsular town with fabulous views across the bay. The views haven’t changed but in recent years the population has grown & now the main street has good restaurants, lively bars and well stocked shops. Yachties continue to arrive with numbers outgrowing moorings. DIVING – Fiji’s North is world-renowned among divers and offers an endless variety of dive sites to suit all tastes and levels of experience. As a rule, while you can dive year round, the best diving is from May through to October. Visibility is not as good in January & February due to plankton blooms & northerly winds. With sites like the 32 km long Rainbow Reef, The Great White Wall, the Zoo and Vuna Reef, it’s not hard to see why this area is a mecca for divers.

BIRD WATCHING – Taveuni is one of Fiji’s best locations for bird watching, with over 100 species of birds to be found here. Try Des Voeux Peak at dawn for a chance to see the rare orange dove and silktail. Along the Lavena Coastal Walk keep an eye peeled for parrots, flame doves, the Fiji goshawk and wattle honeyeater.

FISHING – Fiji’s North has some of the best fishing spots in the South Pacific. The water around Savusavu in particular have abundant marlin, wahoo, tuna and other game fish. Sports fishing is popular in the region with a number of good charter boat operators to take you out amongst the serious fish.

SAVUSAVU HOT SPRINGS – Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area. The local women use these hot springs for cooking and if you visit during the afternoon you’ll see pots of root crops steaming away ready for the evening meal.

Dive the stunning why the North Rainbow Reef and see is a mecca for divers.

Suva & Surrounds If you really want to experience all the colour and diversity that Fiji has to offer, a stay in Suva is a must. The nation’s capital is the business hub of the region, and its colonial past is on display in buildings like the Old Town Hall and Holy Trinity Cathedral, but the overall vibe is pure Fijian. From the bustling and colourful markets to the variety of shops and restaurants in the city centre, you’ll find it a fascinating mix of colours and cultures. It’s also the source of one of Fiji’s most famous products, the Pure Fiji range of skincare. Drop into the factory for a tour and pick up some goodies to bring home. When you’ve seen enough of the city itself, Fiji’s adventure capital of Pacific Harbour is just an hour’s drive to the west. It’s easy to experience all that Fiji has to offer in one great holiday.

Our favourite things to see & do

FIJI MUSEUM – An excellent museum right in the heart of Suva’s botanical gardens. There’s a remarkable collection of Fiji’s evolution and past, with original musical instruments, pottery, jewellery, war clubs and cannibal utensils on display. Worth a visit if you’re in the area. CURRY HOUSES – There’s a number of curry houses in Suva, where those on a limited budget can eat like a king. They’re generally bright and cheerful places that serve up lamb, chicken, fish & vegetarian curries in canteen-style settings.

MALT HOUSE BREWERY & RESTAURANT – Serves up some decent home-brew and even better food. The woodfired pizzas go down well or tuck into the seafood & meat dishes. It’s never short of a happy crowd & worth the trek from downtown.

NATIONAL STADIUM – Fijian’s are fanatical about their rugby and if you’re in the Suva area over the season, March to October, it’s worth getting along to a local game. The atmosphere is huge!

Fiji for Families

© Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji

Everyone knows that the Fijian Islands are the perfect destination for a great family holiday – beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters (great for snorkelling), warm sunny weather, some of the friendliest people in the world and an endless supply of fun things to do. With Fiji literally on our doorstep – only a 3 hour flight away – it’s not hard to see why this destination is a Kiwi favourite. The Fijian people have such a natural love of children and a strong affinity for the family, that from the moment they arrive kids will feel welcomed and relaxed and will return home with fond memories. The resorts we feature in this section are Fiji’s most popular resorts with families of all ages. The toughest choice for you may be in choosing an island or mainland family holiday. Generally speaking if you’re looking for a family beach holiday to get away from it all, the island resorts have the best beaches with most offering safe swimming & snorkelling in front of your bure. If you’re wanting a more active holiday with lots of interesting activities and cultural experiences then consider staying on Fiji’s mainland, Viti Levu – you’ll still be able to take day trips out to the islands. Denarau Island, home to several 5 star resorts and just 20 minutes from Nadi International Airport, has become a favourite family stop with fantastic pool complexes. Whatever your choice the resorts featured in this section offer plenty of amenities and activities to keep the whole family happy. 39

Kids Fun •

Learn the local lingo – it’s always fun to try and the locals love it! At the very least learn to say Bula (hello) and Vinaka (please & thank you).

Take Mum & Dad to a Meke (traditional Fijian dance & song) and try some local food like taro and breadfruit in a lovo (feast cooked underground, like the NZ hangi). The Fijians also make excellent kokoda (raw fish marinated in lime juice and mixed with coconut milk) – yummy!

Go snorkelling and get up close and personal to many friendly, vibrant and tropical fish. If you’re old enough you may be able to learn to scuba dive in the resort pool.

Visit a local village if you can, to learn how the locals live and to check out their bures (traditional Fijian thatched hut).

Meet up with some of the local kids. Make sure to get their address so that you can write to them when you return home.

Watch the geckos wandering the walls and ceilings of buildings – they’re fun to watch & do a great job of keeping the mozzie population down.
