Travel from the airport

Hi guys,

was just wondering if you helpful people could let me know the best way to get from the airport in Nadi to your hotel? (Sonaisali island resort)

Is it worth paying a small fortune for hotel pickup ($300 return for the two of us) or is it cheaper and just as good with a taxi or other options?

We are landing at 5pm on a Friday.

Sonaisali is only about 25 minutes by road from the airport. Grab a taxi but make sure the meter is used or you agree upon a price prior to entering the cab.It will be much cheaper than using the resort transfer.

Sonaisali quote airport return transfers FJD$62 per person which is about AUD$70 return for the 2 of you. Whoever is quoting you $300 is making a tidy profit. Contact Sonaisali direct to arrange your transfers.

Hello whoever quoted you that extreme amount of $300 is incorrect it is nowhere near that with either the direct transfers or a taxi service! Please contact Sonaisali direct on the above email and take advantage of the direct transfer they offer. Sonaisali is a wonderful resort I love it to bits!

You'll pay a little more for hotel transport vs Taxi, but the cars are generally a bit nicer and have aircon, which is a welcome relief at times.

We arranged the tranport through Expedia at a cost of NZ$67 per way for 2 adults and 2 children in a car. Rosies were there at the airport to greet us with a traditional shell necklace and the trip was less than 30 minutes. We also arranged the return for the same price. An option and depneding on how certain you want things could be to book the taxi to the resort and then work out either to us the resorts, the local taxis company that had it down as FJ$40, although could be higher from experience, or if on a taxi trip from Nadi arrange one privately.
