Shangri-La - Fiji - Ocean Deluxe Twin September-24

Hello All,

Good Day and thank you for reading my post. I am travelling with my wife for her birthday at Yanuca Shangri La hotel, we are in our late thirties and we have planned a 5 night stay there.

We need your advice on the below :

1. Is it worth upgrading the room to the Reef King bed from the Ocean Deluxe?

2. Any dining experiences we shouldnt miss in and around the place?

3. Places to visit or things to do that are worthwhile?

Thanks in advance for your inputs and sorry if the questions were basic.

Bula Prasaanth, and welcome to the forum.

Since I haven't stayed at the Shangri La, I have included a link to the reviews. There recent guest comments regarding restaurants/meals, accommodations, and activities. After reading them you might send a private message to some with questions you have.

The Ecotrax Tour is often recommended on the Forum. It looks like a lot of fun for people of all ages and has excellent reviews. Due to its popularity, it is recommended to book before arriving in Fiji. If you would like to do the tour, and it is booked during your stay, put your name on their waiting list. You never know, there might be a cancelation, and you could get lucky.

If this is your first trip to Fiji, and if you haven't already done so, have a look at the following links. Lots of tips, and advice to assist you with your planning. See post #17 in the What to know before booking thread, for suggestions of what to take with you, and other helpful information.

Bula Prasaanth,

I have stayed at the Shangri la

In regards to Question 1?

We found the rooms overlooking the landscaped gardens to the beach were better than the reef vie rooms

Question 2:

We enjoyed eating at Lagoon Terrace Restaurant with the lovely views.

Question 3

I would recommend the ecotrax activity we did it when it was a sugar train activity passing many villages with kids waving etc. As mentioned when you know the dates you are there book ASAP.

Prasaanth do look through the links at the bottom of post #1 there is lots of information there that may make your stay more enjoyable.

Hope this information is helpful.
