“Paradox in Paradise”

published 08/03/2005

Pro"Things that happen here would seem…."

Cons"….Paradox in Paradise." (Flecker)

“There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going,” read the Thought for the Day in the Fiji Times. This at least gave me something to think about as my wife and I lounged by the pool at the Tanoa International Hotel just outside Nadi. Having travelled half-way around the world in just two days to...

Fiji. A small pocket of paradise in the South Pacific, which is breathtaking to even the most seasoned world citizen. The first thing to strike you as you set foot for the first time on their soil is the Fijian people who have a calm, happy and down to earth nature about them. Fiji is a...

“Island Life at its best”

published 06/01/2001

ProWarm weather, sun and fun

ConsMozzies (dengue fever season)

A great spot for a resort holiday or stopover. Very enjoyable. Despite the recent turmoil I believe that it would still be safe. Most of the drama was in Suva which is a couple of hours away from Nadi Airport and the islands. I took a 10 day trip to Fiji and stayed at the Sheraton Fiji Resort...

'Bula' is the local meaning for 'Hello', and when you get to Fiji, you will greeted by the saying so many times that you will pick up the habit. Fiji is a small island located in the Pacific Ocean, not very far away from New Zealand and Australia, and exports some great Rugby players...

ProGeorgeous weather, friendly people

ConsMosquitoes

Fiji is a beautiful experience not to be forgotten! On arrival the warm weather was a joy coming from the somewhat mixed bag of New Zealands winter. We (I joined forces with another girl backpacking) were introduced to what the locals call 'Fiji time' right from the onset as our pick up for the...

ConsLong ride in a small boat

Octopus is consistantly rated as one of the best budget resorts in Fiji, and it's not hard to see why. Our beachfront bure (pronounced like puree) was lovely, traditionally built with a bathroom where the shower had no roof! It was very comfortable, and we didn't mind the resident lizards at all...

“Fiji - A genuine Paradise”

published 08/08/2000

ProToo many to mention

ConsA long way to travel from the Uk

My wife and I honeymooned on Castaway Island in Fiji during March 1999. Despite the on-going problems in the country now, I hope that when things are safer to return we will be able to return to this wonderful South Sea paradise. With all of the fantastic scenery and the fab food my lasting...

“Fabulous Fiji”

published 02/08/2000

ProFriendly, Laid-back - good prices

ConsPresently nasty political trouble

We chose Fiji as one of our stopovers on our RTW ticket as I've always wanted to go there. It sounds exotic and I had read it was a really friendly place. Both of these proved very true. We stayed at a resort near to Nadi - others went onto other islands but we didn't have time. The three days...
