We loved it..very nice place, lovely people
We had been to Sonaisali several years ago and were very much looking forward to going back to see how it had changed under DoubleTree by Hilton.
The resort itself is basically the same in layout but everything was just more modern now. We had a lovely bure which was very spacious had everything we needed - tea & coffee making facilities, fridge for our own drinks, USB points to watch our own shows.
We found the dining options very adequate for a 1-week stay. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate and plenty to choose from to keep you going all day. For dinner you can choose between a la carte in the main restaurant, a la carte at Tuva if you want to dine on the beach, casual dining (e.g. pizzas) in the restaurant, buffet in the main restaurant or room service. As we didn't have lunch I can't comment on what was on offer. Prices for cocktails were much the same as here in Australia and beers were perhaps a little more expensive but that is to be expected at a resort anywhere you go.
From a fitness side, the tennis courts and gym were both great and hardly used by anyone so never a problem there.
You could see every day we were there that they were adding little touches to the resort - table service around the pool in the afternoon for drinks and food, hammocks appearing along the beach which were perfect to watch the sunset from. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful everywhere around the resort.
I really hope that we will be back to visit soon.
We thoroughly enjoyed the proper rest at the wonderful Hilton on its own little island! We had to hire a child minder, as our child was not 3 yet - but it actually worked out in our favour, as the lady has become like a part of our family, and the genuine love and care for children in Fiji overall is unparalleled! The variety of buffet dinners on offer through the week was awesome, and the ever helpful staff deserve a special mention. We will be working hard on trying to come back some time next year, hopefully sooner!
We had a great trip, the new resort is beautiful and the staff are excellent!
We have recently stayed for 9 nights. Fabulous setting, very relaxing. Wonderful friendly staff. The kids club is amazing - outdoor activities everyday - great for active kids! The menu for food is quite limited and the buffet a bit hit and miss.
