where to go january single mum plus 11yr old girl

hi i have frequent flyer points for two tickets to fiji and trying to work out where is best for us to go... head is spinning. it seems islands are better than mainland and most people recommending denarau as it is close to the marina and other stuff to do. is this correct????/

looking for something that will have a bit of entertainment for me (although a nice pool to relax by is fine) and something for her too (kids club maybe but she wont want to be with 8 year olds!) thinking maybe sheraton or westin or or. any ideas would be much appreciated. thanks a lot :)

The islands are best to go to for beauty and swimming/snorkelling. Octopus resort is great has a real mixture of ages, which include other children, they also have a pool and there is great snorkelling off the beach. You can also hire double kayaks which am sure your daughter would enjoy, the staff are lovely with children, no kids club, but am sure she will prob be happy in pool playing around. Depends how long you are planning to go for. You can visit the local village which is great fun and they do have different activities each day.

Hi

I agree with Devonian - we took our 11yr old granddaughter with us to Octopus and she had a ball. This was pre swimming pool days she had so much fun exploring the reef we saw more of lthe top of her head and snorkel than any other part of her.

She is 15 now and still raves about it.

Hi

If you are after value for money the all-inclusive package at the Naviti is hard to beat and it is defiantly kid friendly only draw back it’s not on an island so the beach isn’t that great but there are plenty of things to keep you both occupied all day and into the night

When people talk about going to the islands, they mostly don't include Denarau in that. Denarau is more or less mainland - it is only separated by a few metres of water and a short bridge. It does have advantages - many hotels, close to Nadi, for example. But it doesn't have great beaches or swimming. And probably less of a Fijian feel than many of the "real" islands.
