We headed down to Vakaviti for 3 nights after having spent 2 weeks out on the islands and found it a nice change of scenery and a great way to break up the journey between Nadi and Suva.
To get to Vakaviti from Denarau Marina you need to get a taxi for $10 to Nadi bus terminal, or you can get a bus for much less and then at the terminal there will be a couple of bus options heading in the Suva direction and will stop in Korotogo for you. Our bus cost us $6 each then for the 1 ½ journey. You have to make sure though to tell them you want to stop in Korotogo or even at Vakaviti as they will drive straight through otherwise. We told our first driver but then in Sigatoka the drivers changed and our stop hadn’t been written down so they drove right past and we didn’t realise for a while. To get to Suva then it is another $10.40 from Sigatoka
We stayed in the double motel room at Vakaviti for $80 per night and found it to be really nice, clean and spacious. You have a private bathroom, kitchen facilities and a swimming pool right on your doorstep.
If you want to eat out or have a drink there are plenty of cheap places along the sea front or if you wanted to buy your own food there is a $1 Coastal Transport bus that will take you into Sigatoka where there is a few large supermarkets. Between 1.30 and 2.30 the drivers go on lunch break so there is no buses and the ones immediately after are rammed. You can get a taxi back from Sigatoka for only $8 though if necessary.
Kula Eco Park is also only a 10min walk away and you can easily spend an hour or so in there although the $26 entrance is a little pricey. To get there, walk left out of Vakaviti and along the beach until you get to Outrigger On The Lagoon Resort, walk through it and through the underpass to the other side of the main road and you are there basically.
Overall the place could do with a little touching up as a few things are starting to crack but if we were in Korotogo again we wouldn’t have to think twice about staying here again.
