Denarau Island is so close to Viti Levu as to be almost a part of the mainland itself. So close actually that a short bridge across a shallow tidal stream connects the two. A conveniently short drive from downtown Nadi, Denarau is home to gorgeous international resorts. Complete with all the facilities and services that come with luxurious resorts from some of the world’s leading hotel brands. Radisson, Sheraton, Westin, Sofitel and Hilton resorts offer everything for a Fiji holiday with a distinct South Pacific flavour.
Skirting island shores, on Denarau you’ll find landscaped gardens interwoven with winding paths leading to all kinds of entertaining diversions. Kids clubs, swimming pools and waterslides, horse riding golf, tennis, along with cultural activities like coconut husking or basket weaving are on offer for all ages. For something a little more laid back (or for relaxing ‘adult time’ while the kids are being entertained) soothing spas, massages, cocktail bars and waterfront restaurants abound. Fiji weddings are particularly popular too thanks to lush tropical garden settings and first class amenities which help ease the stress of organising a wedding.
A major attraction of Denarau is that it’s just 20 minutes from Nadi International Airport, meaning your Fiji holiday starts within moments of touching down. Port Denarau Marina is one of Fiji’s major boating hubs for cruises and transfers departing for the Mamamuca and Yasawa Islands (Lautoka is the other one). It’s also pretty popular with cruising yachts who visit from all over the world. Within walking distance of Denarau’s international resorts, Port Denarau Marina is home to one of the largest retail and restaurant complexes in the Nadi area, making it the heart and soul of Denarau.
Whether you come to Denarau to relax or recharge, sharing quality time with family or friends, Denarau offers some of the finest Fijian holiday delights.
