Where to Stay in Fiji - Island vs. Mainland Holiday

So you’re starting to prepare for your dream holiday in Fiji, but you’re stuck on where to stay? It can be tricky deciding between some of the most spectacular destinations in the country – but it’s a good problem to have! Lucky for you, we’re here to help. Here’s how to choose between a holiday full of island living or an all-inclusive holiday on the mainland.

Fiji Islands

We all need to get away to a faraway island from time to time. After stressing about deadlines and spending every morning to night working, you need some quiet time on a tranquil island. This is precisely what you will find on your holiday in the Fijian islands. 

The Fijian islands are a great place for a quiet escape with fewer crowd numbers than the mainland. The majority of resorts in the islands are purely based on providing tranquillity and relaxation to its guests so expect a very relaxing atmosphere wherever you decide to book.

Choose between the magnificent Mamanuca Islands, Yasawa Islands or the Northern islands, and you’ll have a selection of high-class resorts at your fingertips. You’ll also be surrounded by some of the friendliest staff in the world. The Fijian locals always welcome visitors with cheerful smiles and incredible customer service. You will be in great hands!

Access to Island Resorts

Getting to the islands takes an extra boat or plane ride. If you’re set on an island escape, make sure to book a package deal. This will take out all of the stress of travel and accommodation so you can enjoy your holiday from start to finish.

Hoot Holidays offers plenty of incredible Fiji Island deals that include flights, luggage and airport transfers.

Fiji Mainland

The Fijian mainland is a popular destination for visitors. The Fijian culture, townships and people are the main appeal to staying on the mainland.

Choose between the tropical Coral Coast, picturesque Denarau Island, and plenty of other mainland locations. We certainly recommend staying at Coral Coast and Denarau if you are looking for an incredible beachfront resort.

Resorts on the Coral Coast and Denarau Island offer fantastic facilities and Kids Clubs to cater for every family holiday.

Warwick Fiji

If you do plan to have the little ones in tow, check out some of the very accommodating resorts on the Coral Coast and Denarau.

Located on the Coral Coast is the popular Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort & Spa, Warwick Fiji, Naviti Resort and Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort. All four resorts offer a fantastic Kids Club as well as all the facilities you and your family could possibly need.

If Denarau is more up your alley there is also the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa and Radisson Blu Resort Fiji – both are great for family holidays.

Access to Mainland Resorts

Fly direct from Australia into Nadi Airport, hop on your airport transfer and arrive at your hotel. No-fuss travel is certainly a bonus when you’re taking the little ones!

Why Not Both?

Of course, there is also the option to cover both. If you’re planning on spending a week or two in beautiful Fiji, you will have plenty of time to discover both the mainland and some of its islands.
