Which resorts have been recently refurbished?
Save

It’s been a few years (thanks Covid), and we are thinking of another holiday on Denerau.

Last time we stayed at Radisson Blu, and it was disappointing- tired, restaurant quality had declined.

Where else would be suitable for a family of 5, including 2 couples and a teen.

One that was refurbished in 2022 was the Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort at Denarau.

Have you thought of staying on an off shore island at all ?.

Plantation has been recently renovated.

I have found that they keep Musket Cove in Fairly good nick.

Have a look at the Resorts on the Coral Coast. Start with the Warwick and see if anything floats your boat

We did Treasure Island a few years back, but prefer the options for dining etc on the mainland / Denarau

The Sofitel was last renovated in 2021, and the Waitui beach club area was last renovated in December 2022.

The Shangri la on the Coral coast has a number of Restaurants at the resort and has been refurbished.

Other restaurants and activities close by too.

Oh yikes, we're off to the Radisson Blu in a few weeks. Is it really that bad? ☹️ I have no suggestions to offer, but we might have to find something else sharpish, if that's the case.

Phoenixx90

There are many good reviews so I don't think you will have any issues.

Greytraveller, having never been to Fiji (or knowing anyone who has), we based our decision on the reviews too. Hopefully all is well for us, then :)
