3. Dez 04
Heute ist unser letzter Tag in Fiji. Die letzte woche war nicht sonderlich erreignisreich da Elaine krank wurde kurz nachdem wir unser Paradies in Richtung Viti Levu verlassen hatte. Wir verbrachten 2 Naechte im Casablanca an der Coral Coast, meist auf dem Zimmer, da auch das Wetter nicht sonderlich gut war. Samstag regnete es zum ersten Mal nach 3 Wochen Traumwetter. Unser Plan war die letzten paar Tage auf einer Insel in den Mamanucas zu verbringen, daher uebernachteten wir eine weitere Nacht in Nadi, diesmal im Hotel Kennedy, nicht das attraktivste Hotel an der Queens Rd., aber die Zimmer (50$) waren hervorragend, ein riesiges Badezimmer mit Jacuzzi (!) und 24h Room Service ohne Aufpreis was angesichts Elaines Zustand sehr gelegen kam.

Wir entschieden uns fuer die guenstigste Inseloption, Mana Island, 1h Bootsfahrt von Nadi entfernt, ein Fehler wie sich herausstellte. Die Bootsfahrt (70$ return) war sehr schoen, einige der Inseln die wir passierten entsprachen dem ultimativen Suedseetraum, unser Resort auf Mana war jedoch ein absolutes Loch ohne jeglichen Charakter, voll mit Partybackpackern, die Zimmer waren schmuddelig und zu teuer (45$ p.P mit Essen). Die Insel selber ist durchaus schoen. Ich machte mit 2 Deutschen, die ebenfalls mit uns im Boot ankamen, eine ausgiebige Inselerkundung und einige der Straende waren herrlich, die Ausblicke auf die umliegenden Inseln absolut grandios. Wir fuhren dennoch am naechsten Tag bereits zurueck, da es wenig sinnvoll erschien die letzten Tage in Fiji in einem Resort zu verbringen, das wir beide furchtbar fanden. Zudem hatte die Insel abgesehen von den Straenden und den Ausblicken nichts mehr zu bieten. Das Dorf war unattraktiv und alle Huegel gerodet. Dieser Teil Fijis, Nadi und die Backpackerresorts auf den umliegenden Insel, ist trotz aller landschaftlicher Schoenheit die unattraktivste Gegend Fijis, zu touristisch, zu laut und alles ist ueberteuert. Das Schlimme ist, dass die meisten Backpacker nur diesen Teil des Landes kennenlernen. Ich bin so froh, dass wir so viel mehr gesehen haben und bereue es ein bisschen, dass wir nicht laenger in Caqelai geblieben sind oder den Trip nach Taveuni gemacht haben.

Da sich Elaine's gesundheitlicher Zustand nicht wesentlich verbessert hatte, was reisen unmoeglich machte, verbrachten wir noch einmal 2 Tage in Nadi in einem schicken Mittelklassezimmer (75$) im West Motor Inn und genossen ein wenig Luxus, den Pool und das gute Essen im Restaurant. Ich ging jeden Tag in die Stadt um Einzukaufen und entdeckte dabei "The Chef's Restaurant", wo ich zweimal zu Mittag ass. Das "Chefs" ist eines der schicksten Restaurants der Stadt, aber die Preise waren sehr fair und das Essen absolut delizioes. Fuer 10,50$ bekam ich eine gemischte Platte (Mezze of 8) mit rohem Tunfisch, Auberginen, Tabouleh, Homos, zarten Chcken Kebabs und Koefte, ein wahres Gourmetmahl in schickem Ambiente, und das Beste was Nadi touristisch zu bieten hat. Fuer die letzte Nacht wechselten wir noch einmal das Hotel, da wir einen Abend mit Abi, einer Schottin aus Eva's verbringen wollten. Sie hatte eine Pauschaltour gebucht und stieg wie alle Pauschalbackpacker bevor sie auf die Inseln verfrachtet werden im Nadi Bay Resort ab. Das Hotel ist an und fuer sich ganz huebsch mit 2 Pools, gutem Essen und sauberen Zimmern. Dennoch ist das ganze eigentlich eine Abzocke um unerfahrenen Backpackern das Gels aus der Tasche zu ziehen. Die Getraenke und das Esssen waren ueberteuert, ebenso das Zimmer, 56$ ohne eigenes Bad, v.a. wenn wenn man es mit den nicht so backpackerorientierten Hotels in der Umgebung vergleicht. Zudem gefiel mir die Atmosphaere nicht sonderlich, Pauschalbackpacker sind mir im Allgemeinen nicht sehr sympathisch, sie denken sie waeren besonders cool und individuell weil sie einen Rucksack haben und weit weg sind von zuhause, machen aber im Prinzip nichts anderes als Mallorcatouristen.

HELP!!!! Where to stay on Viti Levu?

by ateach52

We'll be in Fiji for 6 nights in January 2010 after 5 weeks in NZ and I am having trouble deciding where to stay. I'd really like one of those paradise places with palm trees hanging over a white sandy beach and stay in a beach front bure. Since it'll be very hot in January apparently, I guess air conditioning would be nice. Is it necessary? Several places have been recommended: Bedarra Beach Inn is one, and Club Fiji another. Is it a good idea to go down to the coral coast? Or is the west coast closer to Nadi better? I think going to the outer islands will mean more travelling and we'd really like to chill out a bit by then. Would love crystal clear blue seas to swim in, and my husband wants to go diving. Also want to see rainforests and village life, so not just beach. We're NOT looking for luxury - but not cheap budget either, and no backpacker. I googled Mango Bay whose setting looked brilliant, but we're two couples in our 50s and 60s (but very active!) and don't want rowdy backpacker atmosphere. Would LOVE some advice! Thanks a million!

I have not been to every beach in Fiji and at the moment would stay away from the main island all together, due to the political situation. But for what I have seen I would rather go to one of the smaller off shore islands.

I was in a beachfront bure east of the town of Sigatoka, so on the CC. There were the overhanging palm trees - but you could not get into the water without shoes, as a lot of broken coral was lying around, and you would have cut your feet. Just a week ago I saw a report on TV showing that the Coral Coast is shambles, with the coral dying off. In fact it is no Coral Coast anymore, and the locals are trying hard to clean up the mess and help the coral to recover.

Natadola Beach is Viti Levu's best beach, west of Sigatoka. Denarau near Nadi airport is a resort island and easy to reach.

Lonely Planet (South Pacific) has quite good info on Fiji, and is available online.

We were on the Coral Coast a year ago at a place called Crusoes retreat. We had beachfront bures which were very cool and comfortable. The resort and the local village had a fish feeding / coral regeneration programme up and running and were getting good results back then.
The resort itself was a nice place to stay with a good mix of guests. can't remember the costs (although it was very inexpensive compared to most other places), but my fiji pages have the website link on them if you want to look. There are plenty of pics of the place too. My husband went diving and I snorkelled. The village is right next door and guests are welcome to wander in any time.
Hope you find what you are looking for.

Go to Waidroka Resort. You would love it and they are PADI certified, catering especially to divers! Beautiful resort off the beaten path in the rain forest at the edge of the ocean. Friendly friendly people who will treat you like family and make you feel so at home you won't want to leave! Their staff come from Korovisilou Village, so you will also have access to plenty of Fijian culture at their nice little village.

Hi there I stayed in a village homestay and it was awesome...I stayed at Danny's which is very close to mango bay beach resort, you get your own cabin so it is not really like a homestay, the food was awesome and the people could not be more helpful...for more detailed information look at this website http://www.fijihomestays.com

We stayed at Bedarra Beach after reading all good reviews and were glad we did, but definitely not a white sandy beach. In fact tide goes way out to the reef and very rocky, outer islands may be for you. Mana island or castaway are good.
