Bula! My partner and I stayed for 5 nights at the InterContinental Fiji. It was our first visit to the resort as well as to Fiji. Wow, what an amazing and beautiful resort! We both enjoyed our stay there tremendously.
The hotel airport transfer was waiting for us when we exit the airport. The journey took about 45mins from the airport to the resort. Upon arrival, my first impression of the InterContinental Fiji was very positive. The entrance was lit up with flames, very modern structures, very open and inviting.
We got upgraded to a Club Suite as part of my Platinum Ambassador status, which means our villa is now at the top of a hill where Club InterContinental is at. Check-in at the club lounge was quick and efficient. Vickey who is one of the concierges, explained all the benefits that I am entitled to. There's also a lovely infinity pool at the club lounge.
The Club Suite is very nice. Large, bright and airy. It has an outdoor tub on the balcony. A long sofa in the lounge room and a dining table. Bathroom is well stocked with amenities. It was a very comfortable stay indeed.
Getting from the club rooms to the main resort area can be done by ordering a buggy or a nice walk down the well groomed grounds. Our room was the furthest possible from main resort area and we managed to walk most of the time.
There are 3 pools at the resort - one at the club lounge (which I believe is only for guest with access to the lounge), an adult only infinity pool next to the beach and a family pool in the main resort. All very nice.
Food at the resort can be taken at the 3 main restaurants - Sanasana, Toba and Navo. If you have club access, the lounge also serves breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails and canapes. There are also finger food at the Kama bar (the pork belly is amazing!).
We tried all the food offerings. Navo has the best quality and taste, but also the most expensive. Sanasana has an extensive buffet for breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is nice but dinner is pretty average. Toba is in the middle. We enjoyed the food there. Price wise, expect to pay Australian prices and you won't feel ripped off.
The Natadola beach is lovely, with pristine water and mild to moderate swell. Be aware that one side of the beach is abit more stoney. So if you want to swim, go towards to "left" side, where it's more sandy. There are plenty of water activities offered by the resort, most of them are payable when it involves hiring an equipment - snorkel, surfboard, kayak, etc.
The service at the resort is friendly. Just be prepared to reply with "Bula" when you meet a staff member!
If you're at the resort for a relaxing holiday, it's a good idea to expect everything to be unhurried. Service can be a bit slow at times (Fiji time!), orders can get forgotten and you might get ignored for awhile (Unintentionally.. I hope). The staff were often apologetic when the service is slow at busier times.
We had a really good time at the InterContinental Fiji and would definitely go back again.
