Novotel Lami Bay is a hotel that I remember from decades ago, when it was the Tradewinds. The hotel has been very nicely upgraded. The bay is reminiscent of peaceful harbours in Asia, with the lagoon look and the little islands sitting like bush covered mushrooms in the sea. Fish jump and can be watched from the open dining area.
The rooms are very good. Just one downsides is if you are on the upper level, there is no lift. And the hotel charges for wifi if you want it in your room. The wifi charge rate is higher than any other hotel I have stayed in. However, there are two computers in a business area that can be used.
Breakfast is a buffet that is quite good. The pancakes are very nice. But it would be good to be able to simply choose something al la carte, if you are not that hungry and would simply prefer a piece of toast. You are caught having to pay the full buffet price or take a taxi into Suva which is about 10 - 15 minutes drive away.
This is not a walking distance to Suva. It is good for someone wanting to be away from the town to relax.
Service is good and the staff are friendly and helpful.
