Fiji

Nadi & Denarau Holidays

Get inspiration

Nadi and Denarau? Doddle.

On the west coast of Viti Levu, bustling Nadi is the gateway to Fiji and is where you’ll find the country’s main international airport. Meanwhile, just a 20-minute drive away, popular Denarau Island is a hub of outdoor activity, serving up an array of beachfront hotels, an 18 hole golf course and a bustling marina. Denarau makes an ideal base for a relaxing holiday on the mainland or as a quick overnight stop before departing for, or returning from, the Mamanuca or Yasawa islands.

A holiday to Denarau Island and Nadi allows you to explore some of the top sights on Fiji’s largest island, Viti Levu. Get a taste of local Fijian life as you stroll along the streets of Nadi, lined with eclectic cafes and haphazard shops. Visit the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere. Wander through hundreds of tropical flowers in the Garden of the Sleeping Giant. And sip a crushed-ice cocktail as you watch the sun go down on Wailoaloa Beach.

Denarau Island offers all kinds of things to do for both couples and families. You can take your pick of resort style hotels, zoom on slides in the waterpark, and play 18 holes on the immaculate golf course. Or, for something more sedate, book yourself in for a pamper session at one of the hotel spas. Port Denarau Marina also offers a wide range of restaurants, bars and boutique shopping and is the perfect place to watch the sunset with an ice cold beer in hand.

But the local attractions are just the tip of the iceberg. A holiday to Denarau Island and Nadi puts you in a prime position for exploring Fiji’s islands. From Denarau Marina you’ll have easy access to Fiji's most famous archipelagos; the Mamaunca and Yasawa islands. Take a day trip to explore the idyllic Mamanuca Islands, or be whisked away by ferry for overnight stays on luxury islands.

Whether you use Nadi and Denarau as a base for your entire Fiji holiday or merely as a jumping off point for an island adventure, our travel experts will take care of all the details to make sure you have an unforgettable holiday.

Things to do in Nadi

The third-biggest town in Fiji, bustling Nadi offers a range of things to do. For a slice of culture, visit Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple – the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere – which features ornate carvings and colourful murals. The temple is free to enter for visitors, but you’ll need to make sure your legs and shoulders are covered.

If you’re into nature, the Garden of the Sleeping Giant is a must-see. Just a 10-minute drive north of Nadi, in the foothills of the Nausori Highlands, this scenic garden is filled with tropical treasures. There are all kinds of exotic plants and flowers, including 2,000 types of orchid. As you stroll through the trees along the canopy-covered walkway, you’ll see tranquil lily ponds and landscaped gardens, while croaking frogs and chirping birds provide the soundtrack.

Things to do on Denarau Island

It might cover an area of just one square mile, but Denarau Island sure packs a punch. Connected to Viti Levu by a short causeway, this holiday haven is just a 20-minute drive from Nadi International Airport. It's the ideal location if you are spending some time on the mainland before heading out the the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands.

Enjoy a day in the sunshine at Denarau Golf & Racquet Club. You can practise your swing on the pristine 18-hole golf course, play tennis, or have a light-hearted game of mini-golf. Afterwards, you can retreat to the luxurious club house for a chilled drink and a delicious wood-fired pizza.

Day trips

There are lots of exciting excursions you can incorporate into your holiday to Nadi and Denarau. Why not see more of Fiji with a boat trip to some of the smaller islands? The beautiful Mamanuca Islands are just a short boat ride from Port Denarau Marina and you can spend the day on an island resort such as South Sea Island or spend the day relaxing in style at Malamala Beach Club, the worlds first island beach club! There are also a number of excursions which will take you to fantastic snorkelling spots, immaculate white sands cays and even the uninhabited Monuriki Island where Hollywood hit Cast Away was filmed.

But Fiji's mainland also offers some incredible days out too. Take to the water of the Navua River for a thrilling white water rafting adventure or a more sedate float on an inflatable kayak to explore lush rainforest, narrow canyons and hidden waterfalls. Enjoy a jet boat ride on the Sigatoka River and meet local communities along the way. Or jump on an e-bike fitted to the tracks of the old sugar cane railway and delight in Fiji's ever changing, beautiful scenery.

Handpicked hotels

If you’re not sure where to stay on your holiday, our experts will help you choose the perfect spot. One of our favourite hotels on Denarau Island is Radisson Blu Resort Fiji. Surrounded by 10 acres of tropical forest – and brushed by its own private beach – this beautiful resort has everything you need for a relaxing holiday in Fiji.

Head to Harmony Retreat Day Spa, where you can unwind with a massage or treatment in a traditional Fijian hut. Go for a dip in one of the four lagoon-style pools, or curl up with your book on a comfy sun lounger. Prefer to keep active? You can zoom along the hotel’s white-water tunnel slide, or go on a snorkelling excursion to nearby Malolo Barrier Reef.

When it’s time to dine, you’ve got plenty of choice. Feast on Italian favourites at Basilico, tuck into Thai dishes at Chantara, and try delicious Fijian cuisine at Lomani Wai. If you’re celebrating something special, or simply fancy a romantic dinner for two, reserve a Signature Table under the stars – you’ll be able to dine in total privacy, as you’re waited on by your butler.
