Tanoa Skylodge Hotel
Ranked #14 of 25 Hotels in Nadi
Reviewed 22 August 2008

We stayed at skylodge for 4 nights, we booked in for a standard room but were upgraded to a superior room. However we had to change rooms a few times. First room there was already someone in the room. Second room the ranch slider could not be locked. The third room was fine. Rooms are abit dated,in need of some renovation and the walls are paper thin (I could hear our neigbours whispering until 2am), however they are clean and comfortable.
Staff are friendly albeit sometimes clueless, a common excuse was "the staff is new at reception''.
The food and drinks were good and reasonably priced. There are several good restaurants/supermarket 2 mins down the road in Namaka.
Central location and easy to get to Nadi town and airport etc.
We paid a last minute discounted rate for our room and got upgraded so we felt it was good value for money. However the rooms are not worth the rack rates and there are far better resorts that offer much better value in the vicinity.

I found this hotel on tripadvisor in Sydney the day before we left for Fiji. We just wanted somewhere near the airport as we were arriving late. If you have more time there are lovely and cheap places on the beach not far away who will pick you up.

This served our purpose really well. They picked us up at the airport around midnight and it is only about 10 minutes, at the most, away. 3 of us shared a room (over 60's not y'r actual backpackers but we are not all on cruises!) The room smelt damp and the bedding was old and thin. But apart from that, it was fine for one night and very cheap. Not a bedbug in sight. We had a good rest and a swim in the lovely pool the next morning. There is a bar by the pool and the whole place is much better than reviews suggested - it looks pretty, well laid out, fine breakfast. Needs a bit of a facelift but so do I. Good reception, really nice staff (it's Fiji! - everyone is great.) They advised us about the bus to our next stop. Watch out for Fiji time - don't expect anything to be punctual but go with the flow.We stayed at 3 places like this in Fiji and each one was fine - really good. See review of Beach-Houses when I get time! Bula! Venacca Nomads.

left my bag with one of the staff at the front desk and money was stolen from me, F$420!!!!!! I had just got out the extra money that afternoon to pay for transfers to another resort i was going to stay at, bound to Matangi to meet friends!
Reported it to the police and the resort upfront withouth hesitation claimed never to have seen me before and i stayed with them for the 1 week and this incident happened on my 4th night!!
I had a confirmed booking with them for that entire week, i showed them their written email confirmation and they lied again saying that is not there reservations email address!!!
They said that was another Skylodge in Fiji...No that's the only one!!!! At least lie properly!!!!!
The rooms are very clean, ac great but you have to slot a card in upon entering to have everything switched on, lights also.
Pool area is clean, bars are nicely set up, it's a beautiful little hidden paradise beside the busy road, although noisy on the outside, it's very peaceful on the inside.
Their gardens are beautiful, little walkways enjoyable. It's a great property but if they have thievs and liars who work for them than that will certainly ruin the resorts image!!
But a very beautiful place to stay, just after that experience, i wouldnt trust the staff again EVER!

If you're looking for a night to blow before or after your trip from Nadi to islands or elsewhere, Nomad Skylodge is a relatively inexpensive and well run backpacker's hotel near Nadi. It's actually located about 10 minutes from the airport and 15 from downtown in different directions. The standard rooms are bare, but only F$76, or book the even nicer, but shared dorms for F$24-30. Free transport to the airport, and public buses run right on the street in front of it for 60 cents to downtown.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights after a long holiday in Fiji and before travelling back to the Middle East to work. The reception staff were very friendly. The main problem was the card key for the door to the room did not function properly so we kept getting locked out. Not so much fun with a baby and elderly relative. After 3 lock outs and a chat with an indifferent duty manager we were allocated another room. The setting is great and can't expect much more for the price. Meals/room service was good.

Stayed at the Skylodge for one night with our 2 teenaged kids. We stayed in a superior room.
The Skylodge was more worn than we expected and could have been cleaner. The beds were very well used and the pillows could hardly be described as "fluffy" as they say on the web site. I wished I had brought my own pillow cases as the linen, although probably washed looked dirty. There was a lot of mould in the shower. I suppose I expected minimal inclusions but in better condition.
The reception staff were very helpful and checked our next day transfers for us.
The general areas were as expected and the meal we had was adequate although for some reason the milkshakes' would take 12 minutes'.
I know the price is a consideration but still feel the accomodation should be clean.
I would look for somewhere better next time and would not mind paying more.

Skylodge is great value for money, we stayed in a superior room which was clean and comfortable. The staff are fantastic, the food is pretty good, especially the curries.

The best rooms are the ones in self contained 'villa's, they are old, but bigger than the hotel rooms. The facitilies are good, there are clean toilets and showers to use after you have checked out if you need to wait until later in the day for an airport transfer. The staff are happy for you to wait around the pool and use the hotel facilities as well.

Would definitely stay again, it's not a 5 start resort, but it is basic and comfortable.
