Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

We have been to Fiji many times and each time we try to make our experience different. We chose to stay at the Westin this time as we were only staying 3 nights and I had purchased a Star Privilige Card which offers fantastic savings on accomodation, food and beverages. We have not had to contend with or have not encountered "feral children" or loud, obnoxious, bogan aussies or other nationalities here. Staff are wonderful and helpful. Rooms comfortable and beds so, so, comfy, bathrooms have been renovated recently I am assuming. Restaurants and bars great and highly recommend the Steakhouse. Fantastic stay with my husband and will definitely stay here again with our teenage children.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled with friends

If you are looking for a hotel with Fiji’s natural beauty, The Westin Denarau Island Resort & Spa Fiji won’t be your ideal choice; but this place is good if you are looking for somewhere still got the Fiji Bula feeling but with every comfort any big international branded resort can offer at your finger tips and you don’t really mind to pay for it.
As a family of three, we spend 6 days at the ocean front room. Overall it was very pleasant. The minute we got the lobby, the familiar Starwood feeling was there because of its design. Check in was a little bit slow, 1 people was serving while trying to answer telephone calls and guest’s questions, luckily there was another guy came out too help before we got too hot without air-conditioning for over 15 minutes. A friendly concierge led us to the room with big smile and a golf cart. The room was spacious and got the ocean view. Bed was very conformable, but as an old hotel has been renovated, there are still quite a few things renovation can’t fix—the bathroom has no ventilation, air-conditioner was noisy and not so powerful, TV is small and with a few blurry channels. Internet was snail speed—no point to pay for the super speed one either because it was much faster. Anyway we didn’t go to Fiji to surf on line nor watching TV.
Breakfast was adequate. There are plenty of swimming pools to bath and bake. The best thing of staying on Denarau is able to share facilities from other Starwood hotels, we tried lunched and dinners at different places every day. The most enjoyable place to dine for us was the “wet edge”, it was so peaceful in the evening to watch sunset and enjoy our meals. The main restaurant with buffet dinner at Sheraton was good experience as well; the fire dance really excited our little boy.
What made our experience special were the staff members. We have stayed at many luxury resorts around the world, although this is definitely not the best hotel with the most attentive services, the difference was everybody has been genuinely warm and gave the guest amicable services. They smiled, they sang and danced, they tried hard to make our time there with such a warm and friendly Fiji feeling. Anna at the breakfast place touched us by her believe and bright smile; the big fellow who organized water aerobics and other sports actives talked about sports with such passion. Concierge asked many times do we need a ride when they saw us walking around. And many more of them always gave us big smiles and happy to help all the time. Those people made this resort unique.

Room Tip: Ask for 1st floor's room for better ocean view.

This was our first trip to The Westin in Denerau and it exceeded our expectations. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious and comfortably furnished. The bathroom arrangement, with the toilet separate is a great idea. The hotel gardens were lush and green, and the pool spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the opportunity to use the pools in the neighbouring Sheraton Hotel and Villas.

Breakfast was lavish and the neighbouring golf course facilities were well of a high quality. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs partial ocean front room at the end of the row. There was noise from small child...

Bula milforder, Greetings from Team Westin Denarau
We are pleased to have created positive memories to your first Fiji trip and set the platform for many more. In acknowledging our staff, I am particularly delighted that you mentioned the gardens as our landscape team often get overlooked due to lack of face to face contact with our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Warm regards
Ravinder

Stayed there for 3 nights and amongst the 3 properties we stayed in Fiji this was the best. The rooms, the staff and even the location is superb. The staff at the reception is particularly very helpful. The rooms are spacious and have a great view. With the Westin, Sheraton and Sheraton Villas connected the walk along the beach is really soothing. We even tried the couples spa, even though it was a bit on the steep side it was really nice and relaxing.

We recently stayed 7 nights. Room was well equipped. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The staff were lovely. The only thing I think people need to be aware of is the price of food and beveridges. The price on all the lists isn't the price you get charged. They add on 20% tax. we also visited the other hotels and found the food at the Starwood group hotels to be very expensive.

Bula Michaela B

We appreciate your patronage of our resort and the feedback thereon. Great to read you slept well and enjoyed the hospitality of our warm and friendly staff. Our food and beverage pricing is comparable to five star resorts and we do indicate on our menus that the 20% Government taxes will be added on - apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Take care

Reading the other reviews its all been said before - see the review by Jakenz. We stayed on a Grabaseat deal during February and the hotel was quite quiet which added to the charm. I think I was most impressed by the staff and the Fijian people in general as they were most accommodating wherever you went. My first visit to Fiji and won't be the last! Paradise. Would definately head for the Westin again as the pools were awesome.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room if possible to avoid noise from overhead.
