Holiday in Paradise

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Apr 2024
I don't understand some of the critiques I've found on the internet before I went there! The hotel is absolutely fantastic. I stayed at the adults only wings, and enjoyed every minute.
The staff are just lovely and wil go out of their ways to help and pamper you. The rooms are spacious, very clean and furnished with comfy beds and big wardrobes.

Thenbeach is not suitable for walking barefoot but then, there's a wonderful reef just feet off the shore - so what do you expect? At low tide, it's posible to enjoy the wonders of the reef with it's many fish even if you are a non-swimmer. A good place for snorkelling if you are a swimmer. On the other side of the hotel, near the children's play castle, the underwaterworld is a completely different one with freshwater from the river mingling with the sea water. A unique snorkelling experience.

The food in the various restaurants is ample and good. The only critisism I'd utter is that I would have wished to have more local Fijian options to sample. The cocktails are good, if not very strong.

On the whole, I had one of my best holidays there. So don't believe everything you read on the internet. Go and see for yourself!

This is a beautiful resort on an island about an hour from Nadi. To get to the island you just drive across a bridge. The resort is well taken care of. Two pools. One is crowded with lots of kids. The other is smaller and less kids. Your choice. Rooms are nice sized and comfortable. Bed was great. Good sized bathroom. Plenty to do. Snorkel, kayak, paddle board. Breakfast buffet available in all 3 restaurants. Looked like a lot of families with kids come here for their holiday. The grounds are very pretty. A true tropical paradise.

Location, staff, accommodation, food all excellent
The welcome was warm and friendly, the staff always on hand to help. A huge variety of food available to suit all tastes. Everything was done with a smile and a "Bula".
Leave your worries behind and enjoy a taste of paradise.

Room tip: Relax and enjoy.

The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The beach, pool and view is stunning. The meeting rooms are conveniently adequate for meetings and functions. Great experience overall Will definitely come back for a holiday experience.

Room tip: The pool closes early evening but a whole day dip is great

Overall experience was horrible. Coming back to this hotel after 28 years celebrating our anniversary started with a unpleasant experience- I had booked through the S-LA website with a rate that the hotel refused to honor because their internal system was telling them something else - they tried to make up all reasons but was challenging convincing them despite my confirmation describing the rate. The amount of time to check in took about an hour to resolve it - thanks for the duty manager Beerbul who finally intervened. I would urge caution particularly if you book meal inclusive rates- they try and rip you off right from the start - the chek in time is 3 pm but they insist that the allowance for that day includes Lunch - how does that make sense? - so again it is baiting. Also be careful with happy hour bill - they try and charge full rates - we had to go back have them correct it . I will not recommend this hotel to anyone given the experience- but urge caution given the way they treat their guests - Coming back was ruined from the get go

Bula RoadWarriorworld,

Greetings from Shangri-La Yanuca Island, Fiji

First and foremost, we extend our sincerest apologies for the unpleasant experiences you encountered during your recent stay with us. It is disheartening to hear that your special anniversary celebration did not begin as joyously as it should have, especially considering your long-standing relationship with our establishment.

We are genuinely sorry for the confusion and frustration caused by the discrepancy in the rate offered on the S-LA website and what was reflected in our internal system. We understand how important it is for such details to be accurate and honored upon arrival, and we regret the significant delay this caused during your check-in process. Please know that we are grateful to our duty manager, Beerbul, for his intervention, and we will be reviewing our procedures to ensure such incidents are not repeated.

Regarding the meal inclusive rates and happy hour billing, we appreciate you bringing these concerns to our attention. It is never our intention to mislead or inconvenience our guests, and we will be investigating these matters thoroughly to correct any misunderstandings and prevent future occurrences.

Your feedback is invaluable to us as it highlights areas where we can improve. We are committed to providing our guests with the highest level of service, and it is clear we fell short in this instance. We hope to have the opportunity to restore your faith in our hotel and demonstrate the high standards we strive to uphold.

Once again, we apologize for the disappointment you experienced and thank you for your cautionary advice to future guests. We take your comments seriously and will be using them to enhance our guest experience moving forward.

Warm regards,
Mrs. Ashwini Singh
Executive Secretary / Quality Improvement Manager

This was my second time staying at the Shangri La. We are a family with three children and we absolutely love it and will definitely be back. This time we stayed in the Lagoon rooms which was really convienient as they were so close to the main pool which was perfect with kids.
A special mention to Peni (Nessa) who works at the Pool Bar. The service that he provided was phenomonal and we can't thank him enough. Always checking in to see if we needed anything to drink which really added to our positive experience.
Marley running all the games was also incredible. Our kids are still talking about him and how funny he was.
Thank you Shangri-La. We will be back!
