InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Having experienced Fijian’s wonderful hospitality some years ago, I was in no doubt that we would enjoy the Intercontinental. And they delivered in spades! We stayed for 6 nights in a 1 Bedroom Plunge Executive suite which consists of a very large lounge room, good size bedroom (with comfy King Bed & Pillows). One negative though, the lighting throughout the suite needs improving. The Executive Suites provides access to the Club Lounge and its facilities which includes - Breakfasts / Afternoon Teas / Evening Canapés and Cocktails - that were all terrific. I wish I could remember all the staff’s names that we meet, as they were all wonderful, including the Maintenance Staff who would say ‘Bula’ as we came across them. However, I will single out Josephine & Paula K - always smiling & happy (made us smile & happy too!) Navo is the fine dining restaurant and we dined there one night having an outstanding Rack of Lamb and a magnificent NZ Pinot Noir. Sanasana Restaurant - Seaford Buffet is not to be missed (Asian Buffet was excellent too!) So with all that said – we’re re-booked for a stay again shortly (this time with daughter & partner) - and we can’t wait!
We have just spent 9 wonderful nights at the Intercontinental Fiji. we wanted to relax and that’s exactly what we did. We stayed in a Beachfront suite (room 1125) which was close to all of the amenities. Stunning views and listening to the waves pounding the shore was just heaven. Very spacious with a seperate living area and a wonderful verandah where we spent most of our time. Our room was upstairs which we were very happy with as we had absolute privacy and we left our doors open every night.(felt very safe doing this) If you downstairs I imagine you would want to shut your doors. We tried all of the restaurants which were all great .Navo was fantastic , we dined here 3 times and ate breakfast here every morning with a stunning view. But our favourite place on the resort was The Karma Lounge. Happy hour 5.30- 7.30 was the best time of the day. Live entertainment everyday with tradional fire dancing ,singing and the lighting of the fires every night (my favourite) all of this whilst watching the sun sinking into the ocean. We loved this resort but the standout here are the staff , all so friendly and welcoming. Too many outstanding staff to name just one. We look forward to visiting again in the future . Bula from beautiful Fiji.
I stayed with my partner for 5 nights and unfortunately we were impacted by bad weather the whole stay. We had one of the executive suites which was spacious and the plunge pool gave us lots of privacy. The staff are very friendly and accommodating however the breakfast can get boring after a few days and the variety was not great in the club area. We ordered room service dinner twice and on both occasions the pizzas were undercooked and the salad I ordered was the wrong one. It is good resort but there is not a lot to do if you are active and want a holiday where you can do a bit of everything.
We spent 2 nights at the Intercontinental after having spent 3 nights in Denarau. It’s absolutely 5 star. The staff were friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The adults-only infinity pool is ultra-relaxing and the staff are attentive (there are other, more spacious areas that are kid-friendly; but for us without kids it was welcome serenity!). But what we loved above everything else was the room. Well catered for, with lots of areas to relax, including a luxurious bathtub on the balcony. We’ll be back soon!
We recently took a day trip to the Intercon Natadolo Bay, we were really disappointed to find that we were not allowed to swim in the pool. We had two young children with us. It wasn’t like the pool was busy. They were however happy with us spending $500 on lunch however the service was terrible! We could have spend another $200 had they waited on our table regularly for drinks! Food and drinks were also very expensive. We also had to pay $40 to security to get in but that was refunded off our meal. Happy with that arrangement as that stops people going to the resort and using the facilities for free. The location is beautiful however based on our experience we wouldn’t rush to stay here. Maybe you need to review your policy of outside guests not being able to swim in the pool which could get you future guests actually staying!
Stayed a few days in May at this wonderful property. Our room was on the second floor on the ocean side. We were next door to the Navo restaurant and very close to the adult pool. Everything is walking distance from most of the rooms. 24/7 buggy service comes pretty quick. They also have the Bula Bus for larger groups. The only downside is the locals pressuring the resort guests when trying to enjoy the beach. Some of them don’t take a stern no for an answer so walking away seemed to work best. Overall, the property was a solid 10, the service was a 10, room was a 10. We had great a visit to Fiji and want to come back soon. BULA!!
My partner and I stayed at this hotel for six nights in early May 2018. Our flight was delayed twice so we didn’t get to the resort until 11pm at night. That didn’t impact the amazing welcome we received (Fijian necklace placed around our necks), and a complete sense of our level of exhaustion. The check in process was speedy, and they offered us drinks. This all took place in the club lounge, where the manager on shift then hugged us both and made us feel so welcome. It really was like coming home. A buggy then took us to our room. Seeing tiles in a five star hotel room isn’t really what I’m used to, but given the island location, it’s completely understandable and I came to appreciate this as the trip went on. Everything else in the room is impeccable. The design is timeless and clever and they have thought of the tiniest little things. The zone layout is great. We ordered room service as all the restaurants were closed. It came promptly and was delicious. Not too pricey either. We stayed in the plunge pool one bedroom suite. We didn’t realise how spectacular this was until the sun came up and we saw it in all its glory. It was surprisingly private. We went to the club lounge for breakfast everyday and the service can not be flawed, and the view is just breath taking. They treat you like royalty, which I we didn’t expect, but really made us feel like we were on a luxury holiday. The staff know you by name, and your greeted by each and every one of them each morning. They are full of handy tips about where to go and what to do. We were taken on a tour of the resort - yes you need to do a tour - this place is huge! During the tour I regretted not bringing my daughter as the kids club looks amazing as does the kids pool. I never thought I would leave my kid with the nannies there but after seeing them in action, I definitely would. They are amazing and kind. This place allows you to have the best of both worlds - as the adults only infinity pool is where we lived most of the time. The beach right infront of the resort is like being in a dream. The sand is like flour and the water is crystal clear. All non moterised water equipment is free and on hand. We paid for a snorkeling trip out on a boat - cheap, great guides, and sooooo many fish. The guides were so compassionate as I was a little scared to be jumping out of a boat in the middle of the ocean, but they were patient and gentle, and really motivated me to take baby steps. There is also a number of local villages in walking distance of the hotel. We walked to the closest one via an old deserted train track which was incredible in and of itself. We were warmly greeted by the locals who took us on a tour of the village. It was really was an amazing experience. We ate at various restaurants in the resort. We never went hungry but the quality of the produce could be improved, and they could take a few more risks with the curries - bland and not chilli. The highlight of our trip was the club lounge, the FREE breakfast, high tea, canapés and cocktails. It really is an incredible package and I would highly recommend it. The staff in the club lounge really made our trip. Hiram Whippy is running a smooth operation. I have to specifically acknowledge Ronnie, Joe, Teo and Cynthia who all work in the lounge and felt like our family while we were there. We will definitely be going back. Oh and we did a day trip out to Denarau island, where the Sofitel and Hilton are. It reaffirmed we had made the right decision. We spoke to people at the Hilton and they said the water there is horrible and most people stick to the pool. We ate at the restaurant there. The service was poor, as was the quality of food. Thanks again to the club staff!
We visited the Intercon last week. It has the potential to be the best property on the main island (We also visited the Marriot in Momi and the Hilton in Denarau). When I inquired, I asked about the differences with Club (I thought I’d booked it) but my request was a quiet ocean view. Upon arrival, since I am an IHG member they upgraded us to a beautiful room. Unfortunately, it was a view of the lagoon, which was mainly dry due to the low tides, and in a wind tunnel. LOUD constant swirling wind and we couldn't hang out on the patio for very long as a result so would have to walk around the corner where it was calm and sunny, a 180 degree difference every time. The building was at the part of the property close to the village so it made it impossible for us to walk to the beach without being bombarded by the people trying to sell to us on the beach every time we went near the sand. They’d sit at the ledge and wait for us to come, and when we’d say no, they’d stand there with us. The hotel needs to work with the villagers and provide something organized since the last guy was aggressively trying to get us to give him our alcohol and said he'd wait for us there to give it to him. Security came onto our patio many times a day to ensure we were safe, but it was very invasive and a constant reminder that it wasn't. The restaurant "Sanasana" was mediocre. They have huge amounts of food, but lacking in quality of taste. I expected more fresh local fruits, but every morning I was disappointed to see canned pears and no fresh local fruits such as pineapple so we’d head over to the quiet restaurant.. The service there was great, and the food was very good. For some reason, they skimp on the fresh fruits though. We got the buffet here on Fiji night and watched the show. Nothing like the one we saw on Tavarua, and it felt very hokey-touristy and almost uncomfortable to watch. I did complain while I was there and was offered some time up at Club, though the access didn’t come until after sunset and only had 1 hour the night this was offered so I had to work hard to get another pass the next day. I was trying to upgrade to the club, but it's also very far from the beach, which is what anyone wants in Fiji right? Ole from the club was awesome and made it very enjoyable and also made sure we were smiling and well taken care of. There was no hassle at the club and the two musicians were awesome. Great view, but far from ocean, which with the constant solicitation could be the reason why. Until the hotel does something about the locals on the beach harassing the visitors each time they step foot on the sand, or go near it, I think I'll avoid this hotel. They need to somehow organize and structure the village and hotel to work together. And when someone requests a quiet room, not give them the howling wind-tunnel.
We found the resort 5 star, with quality of the venue, staff and food was excellent. Food and activities are expensive, however great fun. The pool water temperature was too cold, the bay water was much more pleasant. Off shore snorkeling and scuba diving was fantastic, closer to beach was average. We had 3 rooms nearby for our extended family, and we did not know we could have asked for connected rooms/suites. The upgrade room was a present surprise and very appreciated.
Never have I stayed somewhere so divine that caters for all demographics. I was travelling with my 78 year old mother and 8 year old daughter (a feat the deserves a medal in itself!) All three generations had the most terrific trip. The day we arrived my daughter was invited to a fire lighting ceremony and was dressed up in traditional clothes - what an experience. We were in a bure near the family pool which was convenient and surprisingly quiet. My daughter spent hours in the pool. There were always activities for her to do and we used the kids' club a couple of times which provided fun-filled, educational and cultural enriching experiences. My mum had the most relaxing holiday and read countless books by the pool. She did some hose riding with the locals and we went for long walks along the gorgeous Natadola beach. And for me - well I surfed every single day on the little beach break which made me very content indeed! 7' Foam boards were free to hire for an hour, the staff will tell you when it's high tide and the best time to surf. For the more surfing adventurous, there are trips to outlying reef breaks. The service is outstanding. All the staff are incredibly kind, caring and warm. My only tiny reservation is if you are staying for a week, meals on site can begin to get expensive. We took a trip into town and bought some fresh supplies. One night we ventured off-grid and had a Lovo meal cooked but the locals - which provided a delicious detour. Always tell the hotel if you venture off piste. My only warning is to be flexible. We were caught in Cyclone Keni the last day of our trip. It was exciting and yes, we were safe, but all flights into and out of Nadi were cancelled and it was a little chaotic rebooking flights. Despite Keni, our trip was a breeze. Highly recommended. *****
