Sheraton Fiji Resort
Get the full Fiji fix – firewalking, fruit cocktails and frangipanis – in one resort complex. Habitus magazine Deputy Editor, Nicky Lobo, reports back on her recent visit to Fiji
Located on Denerau Island, three separate resorts – the Sheraton, Sheraton Villas and the Westin – from the same hotel family operate as one large, diverse complex.
Although slightly overwhelming, there are multiple benefits and facilities to enjoy, whether you’re on business, with a partner, friends or family. Including a range of eateries and bars (17 in total!) and various aesthetics within the rooms…
The Westin has a slightly more traditional look, with lots of timber and Fijian artworks in the rooms, while the Sheraton Villas feature wicker furnishings and great views of the water. At the Sheraton Resort, motifs take cues from Fijian icons such as the ubiquitous frangipani and the almost-sacred turtle.
Outside, there are seven pools to choose from. For a child-free option head to the lap pool in the Heavenly Spa, accessible to all hotel guests regardless of whether you’re having a treatment (a massage in an individual, open-air bure is great if you have time though).
Plenty of family-friendly amenities as well, including the Lai Lai Kid’s Club, a dedicated children’s pools, plus those under 12 years stay, play and eat for free when accompanied by a paying adult.
If you’re planning to work, bring your own laptop, as you may have to fight for a computer in the business centre. But make sure you take some time to play, either at the Denerau Golf & Racquet Club or on the bowling green.
Note: the Coco Palms Fire Walking and Cultural Show at the Westin is great, but DO NOT try at home.
