Simply Exceptional Sofitel

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Feb 2023
Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa Waitui Beach Club never fails to deliver on aspects of food, fun, bubbles and exceptional service. The staff are all so attentive, friendly and take the time to get to know you personally, always calling you by name.
Other amazing facilities like Suka Bar and Solis Restaurant offers stunning cuisine down on the beachfront, Bazaar Kitchen for the big appetite, Jounal Lounge for the more intimate, and for the late night revellers Republik Nightclub the only nightclub in Denarau.
Fantastic stay from beginning to end. Thank you to all the Sofitel Team! Naturally we will be back!

We were absolutely privileged to have our room serviced everyday by Lithi. She greeted us with the famous Fijian hospitality, kindness and warmth 😊🥂 She tidied and replenished our room to the best I’ve ever seen.

We have had a wonderful stay here at Sofitel. After a few issues at checkin with our booking, which was more than made up for by the staff with a beautiful dinner and gifts. Both my partner have been treated to an experience that we will both treasure and one that will make us return again and again to the Sofitel.

Thank you to the hardworking team for their love and kindness.

Sofitel's remodel looks great. The resort was stylish and pleasing to the eye. The location is perfect and the facilities were great. The resort shows no sign of wear and looks very fresh. We ate in the dining area for breakfast, lunch and supper and the buffet type food was excellent and they offered a wonderful variety of food. The service was perfect and the check in and check out was quick.

Luxurious accommodation and Waitui Club (adults only) was very indulgent and offered outstanding service. Enjoyed the complimentary mini bar, happy hour drinks and canapés, and hourly treats by the pool which added to the relaxed experience. Also, the complimentary laundry service was very convenient for us having been on a cruise prior to the stay.

Room tip: Be aware of all your inclusions so you don’t miss out on any benefits. Also, being a member of All Accor provided further savings.

This was our first trip back to Sofitel since 2019 we could not believe the change. While some resorts in Fiji have really struggled with the post Covid catch up and are feeling tired and soulless Sofitel (in particular the Waitui club) have come back more fabulous and stronger than ever. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff at the Waitui club, they were absolutely phenomenal. A special mention to Tracy & Gideon (and a few others whose names I wrote down but lost the piece of paper. oops)
The room renovations have been a huge success, what a lift. The rooms feel much more modern, clean light & fresh. We found the Waitui extras super beneficial especially the free mini bar & laundry service which makes a real difference.
We loved the free poolside snacks, the turmeric fish was so good. Sofitel have nailed their return to open boarders and post Covid travel but I have to say that it is, hands down, the staff that make this place come alive. Their warmth, genuine happiness & care is an absolute credit to them.
We were so impressed that we are returning next week, can’t wait! ..and this time I will remember all the names so I can add them here :-)

Room tip: Mini bar is free in club rooms and you can swap out items at no cost to suit your preference

We stayed for 8 nights and thought we’d make this our base of operations for day trips. On the 3rd day we realised that most day trips were inferior to what the Waitui Beach Club was offering, so we stayed in the resort for the rest of the 5 days - it was really that good. The views, the pool, the service - it just couldn’t be topped. The staff were amazing - nothing was a problem. The daily washing and ironing service was a pleasant surprise, we could’ve taken only half our clothes, but will remember for next time. Also the mini-bar exchange was very good - since I could tailor my complementary mini bar to my tastes every day.

No, I can’t fault this place. In fact, we’ve already booked flights to return later this year.
