Fiji Beach Resort & Spa Managed by Hilton
Travel Blogs from Denarau Island
Today is our last full day in Fiji, I am going to be very sad to leave this place. It has been a welcome change of pace from my usual hectic routine and I have enjoyed it enormously. In the end, it did rain last night although the shower was short. It is welcomed by the gardener here at the resort who says it hasn't rained much at all in the past 6 …
It was the first trip with my baby nephew Mikey and all of us were worried that we would be that family with the annoying screaming baby that got death stares from all other passengers for the extent of the flight; luckily he was an angel. This trip was organised by my older sister Jen who works in the travel industry so I didnt really do much …
I awoke this morning so excited to be spending a beautiful birthday out in the sun, reading a book and slinking into the pool periodically... ahhh bliss.
But alas the gods have spoken and it rained; nay bucketted down all day!!
I should have really expected this, being on a tropical island in peak wet season but the rest of the trip …
Now for anyone who knows me, you would know that im deathly afraid of heights. Im afraid when standing on a ladder!
So when im given the option of two adrenalin packed adventures to either jump out of a plane or go paraseiling I chose the lesser of two evils.
After another day in the sun, the cooler afternoon airs came around and we …
Today was another beautiful sunny day in Fiji.
We had a day trip planned to head out to the local island 'South Sea Island' for some diving, snorkelling and glass bottom sub cruising.
It is a very small island and there is no overnight accomodation, all staff on the island sail out daily.
When we first arrive we are briefed on …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We managed to get a great package deal that included this accomodation and I couldnt fault it.
The staff were so warm and helpful always saying Bula anytime you walked past. On several occasions they even relieved us of a crying baby and would walk around with my baby nephew (they all loved babies).
The only slightly negative comments that I could make is that the construction site next door isnt the best view, however is boarded on ground level which helps. Also the resort is quote spread out only going to 2 stories so it can be a bit of a walk to the restuarants in the centre of the resort.
Would definately book again.

Historical Traveler Reviews Fiji Beach Resort & Spa Managed by Hilton Denarau Island
My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the Fiji Hilton during the end of August. It was the first holiday the two of us had had together for 4 years, and was planned as a romantic birthday/anniversary celebration.
My wife and I visited the Fiji Beach Resort and Spa for 5 days in the last week of August and it was fantastic. The whole feel of the place is very modern and contemporary. Plenty of space to relax and just sit by the pool (4 to choose from) drinking cocktails or you can take a diving course, go kayaking, sailing or many other things (we chose the first option). Our villa was very well appointed with a large bathroom area (and giant bath), a huge super king size bed, Bose stereo, plasma TV's, a great kitchen area and a barbeque on the patio. All the villas have ocean views and plenty of privacy if you want. There are plenty of coconut palms to sit under (one of the staff told us these had all just been put in recently).
We stayed at The Hilton on Denarau Island, Nadi, Fiji last weekend (mid August 2006) and it was a really dissapointing experience! The hotel is still under construction, and there are extremely limited facilities. The hotel should be advising people this when they book, and at the very least offering heavily discounted rooms to compensate.
Il nuovo Hilton Fiji è bellissimo!
Di recente abbiamo soggiornato nel nuovo villaggio Hilton Fiji la seconda settimana di agosto. È davvero favoloso! Siamo arrivati in aeroporto e siamo stati accompagnati direttamente al villaggio! Una volta là il personale ci ha accolto cordialmente e in modo sollecito. Abbiamo alloggiato in una camera con vista oceano che era spaziosa, moderna e molto elegante. All'imbrunire siamo scesi e abbiamo preso un cocktail sorseggiandolo al calar del sole... è stato molto romantico!
Consigliamo senza dubbio questo hotel a tutti. Noi abbiamo già programmato di tornarci l'anno prossimo!
Loved the new Hilton Fiji!
We stayed recently at the new Hilton Fiji resort in the 2nd week of August and it was simply stunning! Arrived from our flight and was chauffered from the airport to the resort!
When we arrived the friendly staff welcome us prompty. We stayed in an Ocean view room, it was spacious, modern and very sleek.
At dusk we went down and got cocktails and sipped these away as we saw the sun go down, very romantic!
Definately would recommend this to anyone and have already planned to come back next year!
Vom neuen Hilton Fiji begeistert!
Wir waren in der zweiten Augustwoche im neuen Hilton-Fiji-Resort und es war einfach nur atemberaubend! Wir kamen mit dem Flugzeug an und wurden vom Flughafen zum Resort chauffiert! Wir wurden dort vom Personal freundlich begrüßt. Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit Meerblick, es war geräumig, modern und sehr schick. Am Abend haben wir dann unten während des Sonnenuntergangs Cocktails serviert bekommen, sehr romantisch!
Wir können das Resort definitiv jedem empfehlen und wollen auch nächstes Jahr wieder dorthin!
Hope for the Best!
Our friends have just come back from Hilton Fiji and I admit after reading the review I was a bit concerned but they said they had a great stay and would go back again. They stayed with the Hilton for 3 nights then went out to one of the island resorts and they said they couldn't wait to get back to Hilton. The highlights for them were the rooms, staff and the restaurant. My wife and I have booked for September for a long weekend so I will see how it goes.
The staff were absolutely so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were excellent. The only possible negative thing was the dinner and breakfast buffet was average and lacked flavour. Restaurant was lovely though. Lots of activities and kept everyone well informed every day of what was available.
This was, without a doubt, the worst hotel experience we have ever had. After spending five weeks in wintery Australia, we were so looking forward to beautiful, warm Fiji at a brand new Hilton Beach Resort & Spa. What a shock to us when, upon arrival, we were told there was no spa; then to discover that the beach was unswimmable. It was quite a disappointment, to say the least. We were, however, told that the Sofitel next door had a spa. Well now, isn't that nice. Perhaps I should have stayed at the Sofitel? The only way to get a white sandy beach is to take a day cruise to an outer island, which we did. It was okay, but poor communication between staff and guests left many of us on the beach while the glass bottom boat sailed off, as well as the snorkling boat. Communication is definately a problem - if Fiji was any more laid back, the whole population would be asleep.
