This resort is a long way ( about 60 miles) from Nadi when you might want to do a day trip/cruise.
It is very child friendly and the staff are excellent.
Only the bedrooms/cabins are airconditioned.
One large dining area for all meals and coffee.
Upstairs deck has an adults only bar.
Has pool , canoes , paddle boards etc for use in lagoon.

Room tip: No quiet spot except your room . No airconditioned lounge area to relax in. Plenty of organised daily activities , children are well catered

Yandra In2Holidays, I am currently staying at the Naviti Resort and I received a text over night with a link to your review asking if I had heard anything about your write-up.
Can I start by saying I thought your review was a little harsh, we are one of those returnees you spoke about in your review, so I think I have the right to comment.
I had spoken to a manager recently about changes made to the resort since our last stay and the Sunset deck and bar was part of that conversation. The bar as it stands now, is phase 1 of a bigger plan for the area and I believe a covered area is part of their bigger picture, as well as washroom facilities.
The Grill bar you mentioned in your review is closed at the moment, possibly due to a low occupancy rate and work on the walkways around the kitchen that have not long been completed.
There has been a huge amount of change to the Nukunuku restaurant since our last trip, it’s much brighter and lighter, the doors have been moved to pick up more floor space, the bar has been extended and new flooring laid to extend the tiled part of the restaurant.
I share your concerns regarding the smoking area and the enforcement of the policy. The bar staff do enforce the smoking rule if it’s bought to their attention, but as you would be well aware and appreciate, the bar is very popular and their attention is on service more them policing, maybe better or extra signage around the pool may help. In the past a newsletter called the Sandpaper was circulated to guests that had that type of information as a reminder as well as the weather and up-coming activities, that may return when the occupancy rate grows.

Please don’t let your current vision of the Sunset bar stop you from revisiting this loverly resort, as you mentioned in your review, the frontline staff are just fantastic and will always be here to help make your visit much more enjoyable. ColDotW

Recently returned home from the Naviti Resort, Fiji, what a loverly place it is to have a break. The front-line staff are just wonderful, so happy and obliging, they just make your holiday so enjoyable, this experience begins at reception. The staff in the Nukunuku, the Talei fine dining and the Asian Bamboo restaurants, are just fabulous, this also extends to the hard working and sometimes forgotten pool bar staff.

Unfortunately their importance appears to be lost on some the senior and upper level management. I really believe they are oblivious to how important these individuals are to the resort and how hard they work to keep the guests happy, this includes the ever-increasing number who return every year, I think they call them returnees, although the new autocratic leadership style in the Nukunuku restaurant where the manager is on watch all day appears to be more a hindrance than a help.

The Grill Restaurant advertised on the resort’s web page is nothing more than a small covered cooking area with an adjacent covered seating area used when the resort is at high occupancy and is more of an overflow eating area than a separate restaurant. The Grill menu is available to order from at the Nukunuku Restaurant, don’t be fooled in believing otherwise, “see misleading advert wording below”.

"Enjoy our grill restaurant located amongst beautiful gardens with a perfect view of the South Pacific Ocean!

Located amongst the beautiful gardens with a perfect view of the South Pacific Ocean, the Grill Bar is the place to be when you feel like a satisfying serving of pizza, a burger or a garden salad. The restaurant offers a la carte lunch and dinner daily."

We were especially looking forward to seeing the new Sunset Bar, “what a disappointment”, management have spent a lot of money on an expensive failed show piece. The concept was right, guests do need a bar similar to the atmosphere created in the Salusalu bar and lounge on wet days and in the evening prior to and after meals.
The decision to create a rooftop bar not fully covered in an environment that has tropical rain is a low value return on investment at best, a bar with a fully enclosed roof brings an instant high value return for the resort, 100% of the time, especially when it’s raining. It keeps the guest out of their rooms and more involved. This cannot be done at the Nukunuku resturant while staff are setting up for the sitting.

During the period we were there, the Sunset Bar was open at best 30%-35% of the time, yes, we did get a lot of rain during our stay, but the climate is changing and when you build, you build for the future not the past, you build to improve not to fail.
The decision becomes even stranger when you find they haven’t included washroom facilities, the story is, they couldn’t decide where to build them, near reception or near the bar, so they didn’t include them at all, the staff believe they will be added at a later date.
If you need to use a toilet, you either go back to your room or use the toilets down stairs near the Nukunuku restaurant. Now, if you have to use the toilets facilities down stairs, it would make sense to have a drink down stairs, which defeats the purpose of having an upstairs bar. A lot of people also enjoy a morning coffee these days, adding a coffee machine to the bar facilities may help encourage some pre or post breakfast guests.

Smoking and Vaping!!! - This was another issue we faced during our stay. We moved seats twice while at the pool during our stay, once we had a smoker standing at the back of our seats smoking, the second time a group of young smokers continually vaped next to us without even moving off their lounges, so we had to move again.
The Naviti resort is advertised as a family resort, if smoking and vaping continues to be accepted around the pool, then things may change to the negative very quickly. Previously smokers would leave the pool area which appeared to working well, maybe it was just a lack of re-enforcement, a review of the smoking policy should include the new Sunset bar.

We still had a loverly stay and would we go back, probably.

Just on a lighter side, I suspect the Naviti staff are getting a laugh while watching their guests try and open the butter containers, it’s near impossible to open them without using a knife or fork and a lot of patience.

Great place for a no fuss holiday where children are looked after and kept busy. The All inclusive package was a bonus and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. One of the best places to find a quiet area to relax or have a cocktail or 16 at the swim up bar.

Room tip: Can get very busy around the pool.

We enjoyed a lovely holiday with our family - including two children 11 and 6.
Naviti is a great resort- the staff are so friendly - always greeting us with a “bula” when we pass by. We had the “all inclusive package”. Most of my negative comments are about that - really they should just drop the restrictions and this place would be 5 stars for me.
Rooms in the 400 block are clean - ours was very cool with AC. One room found it better to leave all curtains closed to maintain temperature. It’s nice to have separate bath and shower in the room. Beds comfortable. Room has many immenities - iron, fridge, kettle, safe, make your own hot drinks.
Bring your own water bottles to refill each day ( especially if you arrive late ).
The pool is great - warm water - lots of chairs - no saving issues. Towels available 9-6 in the hut - would be nicer if they were closer to pool.
Pool service was amazing! Tema, George and Vika- all the staff at the pool bar - thank you for going the extra mile ! They personally keep the pool area clean and the guests happy. It would be nice if all guests could have all drinks. The cocktails aren’t fancy but all inclusive can only have beer, wine and spirits with no juice or frozen mix. Charging for a kid’s slushee is silly. Snacks are a ridiculous price so bring your own for kids.
Buffet was good - very much enjoyed the live guitar music and singing. The system for meals was a bit confusing- especially for kids. Order off menu or get buffet but there’s no dessert on menu and you only get one plate - if it’s not enough or you don’t like it - you can’t have more, unless you chose buffet.
Breakfast was the best - buffet has everything you could want. Fresh omelette station, croissants and chocolate pastry, cold cereal and the best oatmeal. Rotation of pancakes and French toast, always bacon and sausage… fruit, yogurt and much more. Everything is “get it yourself”.
Lunch was also good - always a soup, breads, salad station, fruit and dessert.
Many hot selections each day. Never went hungry.
The Bamboo Restaurant was not bad. Not great for kids though. Can’t understand the system - you can’t just order off the all inclusive menu for kids. They don’t have a kids menu. Whatever you order them from the menu costs you extra. They do bring a shared bowl of rice - probably didn’t need to order much for the kids.
Because of that, we stuck to the buffet and it was good.
Again, ordering off the menu is ok- but why do they have appetizers and mains but you can only order one dish?
No tea or coffee at dinner without extra room charge.
We enjoyed the roof top patio at night with sunsets and beautiful breeze.
Shows were hit and miss -the Tuesday night show with dancing and singing from the local village people was lovely.
Recommend visiting the various coloured huts early in your stay. The green hut with Rachael was wonderful! Kara and Paul give THE BEST massages we have ever had. Sure, it’s not a spa, but the breeze from the ocean and pleasant conversation about their life in Fiji is a great experience. They helped us to book a trip to the waterfall. The highlight of our stay. Joe drove us 30 min to the village - they did a Kava ceremony and we had opportunity to buy souvenirs from locals. It’s a 30 min hike to the waterfall, through lush forest - it’s a concrete path most of the way - but there are 6 crossings of the river in shallow rocky spots - bring water shoes.
The waterfall itself is breathtaking with a natural pool to swim in. Take plenty of water to drink. There’s a change hut and washroom - but that’s all.
You can jump from some areas with help from the guides.
On our transfer back to the airport we asked for a stop along the way to shop. It was great to support the local kindergarten when picking up souvenirs and a snack.
The water sports at Naviti were dependent on the tides - so very limited in availability- the big water bikes were “closed for repair” - yet nothing ever
happened. The kayak we got was broken, filled with water and eventually flipped.
But, the two boat tours we had were excellent- glass bottom coral reef tour and daytime bay tour with snacks and wine. Book these early in your stay. The sunset cruise was unavailable due to the tides. Golf has too many extra costs… bring your own balls and tees. The course is rough for the amount they charge to rent equipment. It was hot the day we tried - take drinks.
We borrowed life jackets and went snorkeling. The best area was beyond the village. Locals are happy to show you. Always wear clothing to cover up when walking through the village.
The reef is spectacular at mid tide - fish, plant life, just gorgeous!
Overall, Naviti has so much to offer. We did enjoy it and would go back.
Vinaka and thank you !
