Raffles Gateway is situated directly opposite Nadi Airport and the nearest. Day rates are available. By the time you get from Port Denarau to Raffles you will only have to spend say a couple hours at most before checking in for your departure flight. The SSC bus will drop you at Raffles. Raffles have free airport transfers, but you can also take the short walk.

Could also try Novotel. Can getbdropped there from port, and they have free shuttle to airport. Nice clean rooms, and nice refreshing pool area.

By the time you get your bags off the ferry and get to a hotel it will be around 1. From memory you can check in 3 hours prior to departure, doesnt leave much time for a sleep?

we have used Raddison a few times for this purpose - tried Raffles but left as soon as we could as it was just horrible - food inedible

I don't think Raffles have children on their menu but we've found their food to be adequate to good. I can recommend the kokonda and the spicy prawn entree. Lunch meals include fish, chips and salad, standard pub type fare at matching prices - Fj$16.00 when we ate there last month. Dinner curries are fine and breakfast was nothing outstanding but it did the job, put food in our tummies with no nasty side effects. We've also found the serving ladies in the restaurant to be lovely and there is just something reassuring about being straight across the road from the airport when you're on your way home.

Here's an idea though... you could upgrade to the Captains Lounge on the ferry transfer and, hopefully, your little one might get a bit of a snooze - the theory being that it should be quieter, cooler and more room to stretch out. Then you could go to the airport and check in as soon as they open the check in desk and then pop across the road to Raffles for a couple of hours. We did that and it was so much nicer to kill time in Raffles instead of waiting at the noisy and crowded airport. I think you can hire towels for a small amount and there is a shower in the ladies room behind the restaurant. Hopefully by the time you board your plane bubs might be ready for another snooze. Happy everyone. :)
