A luxury resort which immerses you in the traditions of the local culture yet delivers an experience that looks towards the future? Check into Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort.
When Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort is all too often referred to as the ‘Beating Heart of Fiji’ you know you’re onto something pretty spectacular, a unicorn of a destination which carefully balances the warm Fiji spirit and culture of its friendly people with modern luxury.
You don’t have to drive too far, in fact, this premium property with the ultimate beachfront address is only a convenient 20-minute drive from Nadi International Airport.
Fresh from an extensive $48 million refurbishment, the resort may dazzle with its new layered design, but check in and you’ll come to understand that underneath the glow-up. The property continues to be rooted in developing meaningful connections with the local culture, offering elevated guest experiences and allowing you to unwind at your pace.
About Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort
Home to the best beach setting on Denarau Island (those sunsets), Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort could probably afford to let the local landscape do most of the talking and take a backseat. Instead, the property dials it up to 11, serving up 300 generous guest rooms and suites nestled within lush, palm-dotted gardens.
Offering both pleasure and bleisure (yes, those combining business and leisure) seekers a choice of accommodations which range from Garden View and Ocean View to Ocean Front, Larger Studio and the One-Bedroom Presidential Suite – all of which offer private balconies or patios from which to make the most of Nadi’s tropical views.
A great stay isn’t only about the views of course (even if the suites do offer 180-degree ocean views); traditional artwork on Fijian barkcloth and pure silk by local artists of Sigavou Studios gives a sense of place, while mod cons such as high-speed WiFi and 55-inch LCD TVs anchor guests in the here and now.
You can even elevate your stay by opting for an all-inclusive package.
Dining at Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort
Located a short walk from some of Fiji’s best restaurants, Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort does some impressive heavy lifting to ensure that the quality of the food served on-site, as well as the diversity of their restaurants remains peerless.
Offering a unique dining experience that’s all about immersing yourself in the elements – all under the stars with your feet in the sand and aglow from the sunset torch-lighting ceremony – waterfront Tatavu Fiji Grill & Bar is quickly developing a reputation as the place to be on the island.
Serving up family-style woodfire roasts, charcoal boards and of course, super fresh seafood, this perfect dining experience is rounded out with artisan cocktails plus a special menu for ‘Little Champions’.
Prefer buffet-style dining? Atmospheric Island 619 boasts a rotating selection of international cuisines and global dishes to enjoy as a live band plays on well into the balmy night.
No morning is complete without a life-affirming flat white and a croissant of course. Happily, 28g helps guests fuel their day without having to go for an early morning caffeine search offsite.
Meanwhile, those who are after something a little more casual – be it fried chicken, or a pizza and beer, will find firm favourites, Sega Na Leqa and Heineken House just around the corner from the resort’s main entrance.
In-room dining is also available 24 hours a day.
Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort activities
There’s nothing to suggest you can’t spend your days lazing on a sun lounger. But for those keen to try a wide range of activities, there’s little more to say than you’ve certainly booked the right resort.
Featuring an expansive waterfront area boasting four swimming pools (everything from an adults-only to a children’s splash spot), the resort is located by the Eiichi Motohashi-designed world-class championship 18-hole Denarau Golf & Racquet Club where Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort guests enjoy special privileges.
Prefer water sports? You can choose from non-motorised activities such as snorkelling and kayaking, tackle a sailing adventure or banana boat ride and sign up for surf lessons. Or team up with the resort’s KaiWai Watersports team for an action-packed day tour.
Now, there’s nothing Fijians love more than little ones, and happily, a fun and exciting Kids’ Club is available onsite as part of their Sheraton Side by Side program – a situation which allows you to fully immerse yourself in the property’s Farm to Fork experience.
Taking place twice a week (on Wednesdays and Saturdays), the experience includes an interactive tour of the resort’s five-acre farm with the Resident Farm Manager, before enjoying a traditionally prepared ‘lovo’ dinner made from fresh farm produce and paired with local entertainment.
Ready to tackle activities outside the resort? The ever-popular Port Denarau Marina – home to a wealth of restaurants, boutiques and day tours to the Mamanuca Islands nearby – is within (an incredibly scenic) walking distance.
