Hi Travelers,

I am stopping in Fiji for 7 hours...

I would love to get a swim in, have a drive around, grab a nice lunch and get my next flight to LAX...

Where to go what to do?

Depend on what time you arrive. Have a look at the website for First Landing Resort. Click on specials and scroll down to 'First or Last Day in Paradise'

They will pick you up from the airport and return you, have lunch or dinner have the use of a day room and full use of all the resort facilities. All for F$240 for two persons. About Aussie dollars $135 at the moment, depends on the exchange rate but is excellent value.

Suggest you go and book this with them online so they can be there to meet you. Worth the upgrade to the seafood lunch (if you like lobster). Like being on a island great pool does have a narrow beach and sun lounges but the water off the beach is pretty shallow. Have a massage at the day spa, make the most of it. We stay there whenever we have a late flight out.

Have a look at resorts in the Newtown Beach area of Nadi you may find some that offer day rooms, they have pools but it is a grey sand beach. They are cheaper. Another option is to go over the road from the airport to Raffles Gateway Hotel they have a great pool and you can eat there. Contact them re a day room available.

I was thinking of having lunch there before transfers and they were really helpful and emailed back really quickly. They offer day rooms as well.
