Where to stay for 1 night?

Hi guys,

I have messed up my transfers, as our flight gets in to Nadi @ 16.00 and the last Cat transfer to Matamanoa is @ 15.00.

We were thinking of getting helicopter but are trying to keep the costs down as we have spent far too much money already on this honeymoon!!

so I would like to know where is good to stay a night nr the airport, or equally nr the port as we will get the Cat in the morning,

Your much needed advice is greatly appreciated, as always :)

If it wasn't your honeymoon, I would recommend doing it on the cheap at Mama's Tropic of Cancer Resort (Backpackers), or next door at Smugglers Cove (flashpackers). Both are right on the water at Nadi Bay (New Town Beach) and offer free airport pick up and transfer to the Marina. Also a younger crowd.

Given that it is your honeymoon I would probably say The Westin on Denaurau, only as it is probably closest to Denauaru Marina, so you could also walk down there in the evening and eat at Mama's Pizza, The Hard Rock or the other restaurants on offer there, which are a fair bit cheaper than Denaurau Resorts.

Failing that, just grab whatever is offering a special. The Hilton managed Beach Resort is also nice.

FYI - The airport is only 15-20 mins from Denaurau Isl, so it is not a big arduous trip. There is not much quality on offer around Nadi Airport, or Nadi itself.

It takes about 20 mins to get from the airport to Denarau by taxi.

There's always plenty of taxi's at the airport, but pay in FJD. By law they are supposed to use meters now. F$1 per km with F$5 flagfall. The Westin is about 3 mins by taxi to Port Denarau (or you could walk if it's not too hot) PD is where SSC's boat departs for the islands.

enjoy your honeymoon LTB
