Novotel Suva Lami Bay4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Possibly the best thing about the Novotel is the staff. A great crew from reception to the bar. It was a very busy week with all the 7's teams staying, but service was up to the usual high standard. I was very lucky with the upgrade to the 1 bedroom suite which is wonderful. Dining in the oceanside restaurant is great, especially at breakfast, a great way to start the day. I just hope to come back again next year.
We stayed in this Novotel after a conference in Suva. It had beautiful views over the bay and quite a lovely pool. The staff was friendly and helped with adapters. The breakfast was large though the coffee needs to be improved.
Back in March we called into Novotel Lami Bay for lunch and were that impressed with the vibe and setting of this hotel that we vowed to return and stay , thus we have ticked that box. The vibe and setting here just relaxes you as soon as you walk in and sink into one of their ezy chairs and look out upon the inner habour vista.It just has that effect , just kick back and chill , " All's Good ". The staff here are all so friendly and happy.I had a brief interaction with Tim the manager who on first impression struck me as a a really "nice " , friendly Guy in an " Old School Way " ( favourite uncle sort of thing ).I reckon this has been passed onto the staff at Novotel Lami Bay - I would vote this Hotel as the friendliest hotel that I have ever stayed at , hands down !! Our room was down stairs and OK , but would have enjoyed couple of chairs or lounges on our terrace. The Concierge at reception was genuinely friendly , chatty and helpful.We were reaĺly made to feel welcome. At the bar , after greating the barman , he looked at my wife and announced that she would be asking for a white wine - correct.Then informed her that she was going to ask for a Savigon Blanc - correct.He then looked at me and informed me that I would be requesting a Fiji Gold - correct. I like this Guy ! ( are we Kiwis this predictable?!?! ) All of the staff that we interacted with were just as cheerful with a sense of fun about them , but still wanting to give you the best of service..So damned good to see in this day and age. Tim and his staff have left an everlasting good memory with us and we thank them for the Awesome experience and service that they provided for us. Without a doubt we Highly Recommend Novotel Lami Bay as the Hotel to stay in when in Suva. I
Went to stay during the weekend for one night only and had this experience: Hot water jug was all rusty inside couldn't make tea/coffee. In the morning little cockroaches where on the floor. something similar i had experienced in this hotel few years ago
We stayed at Novotel for 3 days and we loved every single bit. Rooms were nice so as the bathroom. Bed sheets were changed everyday - nothing like clean sheets after a long day out exploring. Staff were extremely friendly!! Food was a making, the breakfast buffet was so worth the $$. We attended a wedding reception across the road so handy as they didn't mind us making abit of noise! Would definitely recommend - kid friendly. There's also a shop onsite selling snacks and souvenirs! Vinaka levu Fiji 🇫🇯
I was at Novotel after a trip to spend the day until my flight. They have a restaurant with fairly limited menu and an open lobby as well as a small swimming pool. It is a pleasant hotel with friendly people. Their internet connection was terrible though. I used their SPA, which they were kind enough to accomodate me with a short notice.
It was a good experience, first time staying at this property although many times in Suva. It’s about 10 min drive into suva city but if you are not going in at 6:30 to 8am then it’s fine. Good quality is great and rooms are spacious. Friendly staffs. No major complains.
I stayed at Novotel for 3 days after vacationing in Mamanuca Islands in Fiji. While at the beginning I was given a room that was not renovated and therefore in bad condition and without wifi, after complaining to the manager I was offered a newly-renovated room with pool and sea views. The hotel, although 15 minutes drive from Suva center, has an excellent location in front of Lami bay, and indeed the lounge chairs at the pool and the café and restaurant areas are literally upon the sea, all enjoying wonderful views of the bay. Breakfast buffet was very good as well as the restaurant's menu. I definitely recommend it for your stay in Suva!
Away from the hustle and bustle of Suva city, I would recommend Novotel Lami for local and overseas guests. Rooms have a modern neat set up & the staff friendly and willing to assist. Buffet Breakfast was awesome too.
A wonderful location and helpful staff make for a restful and enjoyable stay. The restaurant meals are good if the service is a little varied. Issues raised during my stay were quickly resolved. Unfortunately the wifi in the hotel still needs work.
