Shop Nearby

Hi Everyone,

I'm traveling to the Doubletree Resort Sonaisali Fiji with my family next week. I'm after some information on the whereabouts of the nearest Shop/Supermarket to the resort. I'm after just general items like soft drinks/snacks/beer. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi there! Your best shops would be back in Nadi town as you have the bigger supermarkets and much more choice and range about 20 mins drive away. You do have some very small roadside shops but to be honest everytime I have stayed at the resort in the past I just buy up in town. Depending on what time you are coming to the resort you would come through Nadi town on your way so if you are arriving by taxi or private car you could ask them to stop for you.

Thanks for the advice Bluestreak,

I'm getting there late when shops will be closed, so was looking at going somewhere close by the next morning without paying $50 for a taxi. I was thinking there might be s milk bar type shop not too far away from the jetty, hopefully within walking distance.

There is one on the corner of the main road as you turn off to doubletree. I didn't stop there so can't give any more info but it was roughly?? a 20min walk.

There is a small corner store on the corner of the main road and the road leading to Double tree however it would be a good 20 minute walk to get to this from the resort and I have never been into this one so can't say exactly what they have its looks quite basic from outside but it would only be limited stock and im not sure if any alcohol. Nadi town would be your best bet for all your supplies and grog.

At the corner of the main road into Double Tree/ Sonaisali there is now a FoodHall supermarket - ample stuff & variety than a corner shop :) There is no need to go all the way to Nadi unless you would like to visit Nadi too.

Yes it is walkable you would be looking at a brisk 15 minute walk to get to the shop. Take a hat if hot as the whole walk will be in the sun.
