Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort

First time visitors and regular travelers alike will fall in love with the Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort. Combining a family-friendly vibe with luxurious amenities and finishes, this resort is a perfect place to start a trip to Fiji, bringing together the very best of the country with something to suit everyone.

Just three minutes’ drive from Port Denarau Marina, Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort is perfectly located: a stone’s throw from retail and hospitality offerings but still with direct beach access thanks to the resort’s’ waterfront location. Guests can make the most of this dream spot and hire motorised and non-motorised water equipment for days spent on the water, or can indulge in Heavenly Spa by Westin™ or grab a drink at the swim-up bar against a backdrop of the sparkling seas.

As the name suggests, guests of the resort also enjoy special privileges at Denarau Golf & Racquet Club, with beginners and professionals alike able to finesse their skills at the 18-hole Championship course. If a round of golf works up the appetite, guests can enjoy a blend of South American and Fijian fusion at Tatavu Grill & Bar, or indulge in a farm to fork experience (including an interactive tour of the on-site Sheraton farm) with a traditional cultural show at the hotel restaurant.

The resort itself has been newly refurbished in a multimillion-dollar transformation, and offers accommodation options for different group sizes so families, friends, couples and everyone in between can enjoy everything Denarau Island has to offer.

Sheraton Denarau Villas

As a larger complex joined to the aforementioned Sheraton Fiji Gold & Beach Resort, the Sheraton Denarau Villas

is a three-in-one beachfront resort that has everything you need for your trip, all in one place. This is a location for effortless travel: from generously sized, two and three-bedroom villas, to kids clubs and multiple on-site restaurants, the resort is ideal as a base for exploring Fiji or as somewhere to never leave.

Here, the amenities list just keeps on going. Will you work up a sweat in the state-of-the-art fitness centre, take a dip in one of the two on-site pools, escape to the day-spa or take the clubs for a spin at the resort’s golf course?

Whatever you plan for the day, Sheraton will keep you well-fed, with restaurants, a cafe and 24-hour room service available to hotel guests. Start the day off by experiencing Fiji’s famous coffee culture at 28g, and book a table at Wet Edge for casual food served by the beach. Alternatively, nearby restaurants Tatavu Grill & Bar, Sega Na Lega, and Heineken House Restaurant & Bar offer different culinary options, from traditional open-flame grills to wood fired pizzas.

If you’re looking to experience a trip you’ll never forget, we recommend a stay at the Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay, which offers the only over-water bungalows on the country’s mainland.

Picture waking up surrounded by crystalline waters, diving into the lagoon from your private balcony and then rinsing off in your soaking tub, surrounded by spa-like amenities. This is the daily experience for guests at this resort, where luxury is embedded in all facets of the accommodation and offerings.

Once you’re ready to leave your private haven, the resort features an adults-only sunset pool, facials and massages at the Quan Spa, and five culinary options to satiate your appetite. One such outpost is Fish Bar, an elegant restaurant that plates up fresh, locally caught seafood, against a backdrop of Momi Bay.

Guests looking for unique experiences can head to the famous Namotu Island’s Cloudbreak to hit the waves, or learn more about local sustainability initiatives, with Mangrove and Coral Planting activities available to those wanting to learn more about protecting Fiji’s local marine ecosystems.
