Lovely stay

The lovely Fijian staff made our stay memorable. They were lovely and helpful. Breakfast was fabulous. However the other food could have been better. The resort and surroundings were beautiful.

Loved our stay at The Westin - beautiful!!!

We enjoyed eight wonderful nights in September at The Westin in Denarau. Great beachfront room, relaxing setting, fantastic weather, sumptuous breakfasts and outstanding service. Top place to stay for access to the Fiji islands, day cruises, etc. A little disappointed with the high prices for food and drink at the Westin, but this did not spoil our great holiday.

Such a lovely hotel but wouldn't stay for more than night or two as think Islands had more of the Fijian experience.

Lovely beachfront villa

Our only slight negative was that we thought that we booked a 2 bedroom accommodation but it was 2 rooms - so my daughter was on a roll-away in living area! Still really enjoyed our stay

Most incredible resort I've ever stayed at!

This resort was so beautiful and luxurious. The entirety of the facilities were in top notch condition, so beautiful and our room was huge and amazing. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Would recommend to everyone but not so much for families. Only downside was the cost of food at the resort. Hope I can return one day!

holiday

Westin denaru was the best holiday we have had in years,the room was large and staff very friendly.Food is very exspensive but it is the same at most resorts if you look around you can find cheaper.Our room was large and very clean and I cant say enough about the staff was stayed there for eight nights and cant fault one thing. The great thing about staying is you can walk or get a bula bus to all the resorts around you and find different things to do. We will certainly be going again.

We had a lovely stay after our daughters wedding at Outriggers on the Coral Coast.

It would be better if taxes were included in meal prices.Very expensive to eat within cashless resorts.We ate out mostly at Denerau.

Beautiful relaxing hotel

The Westin is a beautiful hotel built in Fijian style which makes it stand out from the others on Denarau. Beautiful adults only pool near the gym and a really relaxed feel compared to the Sheraton and other surrounding hotels. Would have liked some non motorised water activities to be included in the price as there isn't a lot for older kids to do....but the 2 bedroom villas are huge and although Fiji seems to be getting expensive, it is the most relaxing place to do a lot or do nothing

Westin Denarau

wonderful resort with great service, from the most friendly of staff. food and drinks were very overpriced but were amazing and never disappointed. big bonus having the inter link with the sheraton where we spent alot of the time mainly due to the beach front for the kids.

7 days in paradise

It was the second time I stayed at the Westin. Would definitely stay there again. Only negative was that the room was a bit dark and it was on a path so everyone could see in. Also, washing is a problem. It would be nice to be able to rinse clothes and dry them.

We found the resort to be a wonderful place to stay, very friendly and accommodating staff - always eager to help in any they could, location is perfect, only criticism we have is it is ridiculously expensive to eat and drink at the resort considering it is only a 5 minute taxi into Port Denarau that costs $5 each way and the dining is so much better and a lot less expensive.

Lovely stay, beautiful resort, great buffet breakfast!

We stayed here on our honeymoon for 7 nights, the room was lovely, quiet and clean, beds were amazingly comfortable.

Location was a short Bula bus ride to the marina where you can dine out, or a short bus ride to the Sheraton resort.

Pool and surroundings were beautiful, right on the beach front, with drinks and dining services poolside. The resort doesn't have a kids clubs so we noticed it had less kids in compared to the Sheraton.
The gym isn't too bad, has basic equipment and was quite busy - they would do better if they expanded the gym.
Buffet breakfast was amazing, eggs cooked to order, full hot breakfast, juicing machine, pancakes, champagne available every morning as well as your standard toasts, cereals, pastries, hams, cheeses and fruit!
The only negative comment is as the week went on I noticed the room service slacked a little, less towels were left and the bottles of water left were not consistent, some days 2/3 some days 1, somedays none. This is my only complaint but it was nothing major, didn't spoil our stay.

I've travelled around the world, but have never been as pampered and received such excellent and friendly service as we did at the Westin.

Position and Hotel was Good Value

We had a stop over here when we left an island for a couple of days which happened to be our 30th wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday and the Lady behind the counter when we checked in promised us a bottle of wine to celebrate our occasion not once but twice over 2 days...Just to let you know we are still waiting...? About the hotel...Location is great, staff were great, breakfast was great, we had dinner at the Sheraton both nights and the meals were fantastic and the band at the bar were worth more than you could pay, they played our wedding song for us as a request and had never played that song before but absolutely nailed it...thanks guys you were one of the highlights of our trip and loved your music..........I wish we could of stayed longer at these resorts as they all interconnect and are great value......Will be back for our next anniversary song...........

Laid back yet indulgent

With a distinct Fijian feel that the other Denerau hotels don't have, the Westin is a gorgeous place for a laid back yet indulgent holiday. Our friends staying at other hotels were envious! Handy to the port if you want to take a boat trip to experience the Fiji Islands; the beach on Denerau isn't anything special. Food is expensive at the hotel but our included breakfast was lush. There are plenty of places at the port for nice meals, it's a cheap taxi ride or 10 min walk. The pool area at the Westin is divine. We were a couple on a romantic holiday without the kids, there were children in the pool from time to time but the hotel wasn't teeming with kids. We'd definitely go back!

Breathtaking

The best hotel in Denarau by far. We went with our 21 month old and they treat kids like gold in Fiji which was fantastic to see. The room was so comfortable and the bed was like a cloud.
On the down side. I find the food in Fiji was nothing to rave about. Room service and food outlets so overpriced and poor quality for what we had.
A magical and relaxing resort.

Best hotel on Denarau

After having stayed here in 2011 for our honeymoon we decided to come back this year for another holiday and after staying at 2 other resorts in Fiji The Westin is by far the very best!! We love it. I love the style of the rooms and the art and decorations I love the location right in the middle of all the other hotel's restaurants and the service was fantastic. You definetely have to get used to service in 'Fiji time' but once you get over that they really do provide a really good service. I've noticed from 3 years ago prices have really gone up in terms of buying alcohol and food but I didn't mind as we were staying in a beautiful hotel.

I think the Westin is fantastic for couples and if I had kids I would stay at the Sheraton. The pool facilities seemed to be geared towards kids and families whereas the Westin has a more luxurious pool with a great bar area where they have live music.

Also had a massage at the Heavenly Spa both times and loved it beautiful indoor outdoor feel and nice facilities and really good massage.

The breakfast was included and is so good! Heaps of variety and never saw anything empty

Loved every second and can highly recommend after either staying at other resorts in Denarau or wandering through the grounds of the other hotels this is definetely the best one!

Loved the Westin. Staff amazing from reception, to porters to Lanny our cleaner. Pool divine. Rooms gorgeous and such comfy beds. Breakfast superior to Sheraton - loved the juicer. Wandered along to all other Denerau resorts and Westin was so much more peaceful than others as not so many young families. Would def return to Westin.

Nice family break

The room is large and comfortable and very friendly and helpful staff. I was disappointed with food of the restaurants on the resorts. We ate at the feast, Steak House, and Zing. The food was disappointing at the prices charged. The restaurants at the Marina were much better in terms of value and quality. We ate at Mamas, Bone fish and Nadina.

Great place to stay for a relaxing holiday

The resort restaurants were far too expensive However the food we had the one time we did eat in the resort restaurant was good. We ate at the marina restaurants for almost half the price even taking in consideration the cost of the bulla bus to get there, we also thought some of the day trips were too expensive for what you get. The beaches on the island are not good (black sand) however the pools were great & very well maintained, We had a great time just relaxing around the pools & doing some sight seeing around Fiji. The rooms were comfy & all the staff very friendly.We will go back to Fiji some time for another relaxing holiday & we will probably stay at the Westin

We could not pick fault with the resort and would definitely stay again. We jumped on the Bulla Bus and visited all the other resorts on Denarau. The Westin was by far the most impressive. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was great with a lot of variety. We travelled with another two couples and we were all impressed with our rooms and the resort.

Overall the hotel is not a bad one to stay at as it's close to public transport and not too far from the town centre.

A great place to stay

Our first holiday away with our 8 month old boy. Last week of July 2012, weather was great about 30 degrees and sunny every day. A great time to go as the resort(s) weren't busy.

Arrived Nadi airport and traveled to the Westin with TTF transfer wich took about 30mins (booked online).

Check-in was fast and easy. We asked if the Cot was in the room and they said it would be shortly. We were taken to our room via a \\"golf buggy\\" vehicle.

Within 10 mins reception phoned to ask if we were happy with our room (ocean view). We mentioned we were still waiting on the cot (arrived in the next 10 mins).

Room was great, clean, plenty of room, a/c can stay on when you leave, bath/shower room was a \\"wet room\\". A shower curtain around the bath but not the shower!

Buffet breakfast was great, lots of hot/cold options for all including our little boy. All the staff were so friendly especially with our little boy who loved them all.

Moo Moo restaurant was great, reasonably priced for a resort plus 20% discount if you ate between 6-7pm (plus while we were their kids meals were free).

As the neighboring Sheraton(s) are also ran by starwood you can use their facilities and dine at their restaurants (and charge to your room). I would recommend making reservations if eating at any of the resort restaurants.

We also ate at the Denarau Port where there are about 6 or so restaurants and are cheaper than the resorts. Taxi from the resort is 5 FJD each way. There is also a small supermarket at the Port.

Pools were great, Westin had a great toddlers pool which our son loved. Plus you also have the option of using the other Sheraton pools (about 3 to 6 min walk along the waterfront).

There isn't much of a beach at the Westin and probably wouldn't want to swim in the ocean there, but they do offer a free water taxi out to the nearby island which has a beach and cleaner water. As we had our little boy with us we didn't do any day trips this time.

We would definitely stay here again (or at the Sheraton).

Bula! Had a fantabulous family holiday for 5 nights, the Resort is traditional yet equisite, keep you engazed with different activities throughout and yet give you all your space, gorgeous views, we stayed in ocean front views and December mid seemed like the perfect weather to be there. Very hospitable and friendly staff ...Vinaka Fiji

It is one of the best resorts I have stayed in. Would recommend it to all wishing to stay in Fiji, handy to everything you could possible wish to do. Take the village bus to Nadi and pass through local villages on the way, that will show you real local life.

Disappointing

We arrived and were taken to our accommodation which was very basic and not at all as expected. When we asked to be moved we were told that we would have to pay an extra $100 per night to be moved to a newly renovated room. The only difference with this room is it has been newly tiled. The extra benefits of daily newspaper delivered and use of Vuso bar free for 1 hour per day does not equate to an extra $100/night. The service was very poor and at times rude. The uniforms of the service staff in the restaurant were dirty and they were not helpful at all. We will never stay at one of the Westin hotels ever again and would advise any prospective guests to check out other values at Port Denarau before booking.
