For the keen or casual golfer I would take them straight to the Denarau Island Golf and Raquet Club. The quality of the facilites and the warm Fijian hospitality make it the ultimate golfing experience. The resort staff, especially those at the Naviti Resort on the coral coast.

You'll need to check out the Coral Coast as the scenery and people are fantastic. Plenty of accommodation along the way to. If you are with children best place to stay along the coast (In my opinion) is Naviti Resort. The resort has great facilities for all the family from the huge pool to the golf and tennis. It now has donkey rides for the kids along with a great adventure gymnasium. Definately the people there. The Fijians must be some of the friendliest people around. Always have a smile on their faces....it's great.
Korovou eco resort
Korovou eco resort is on the west side of the island of Naviti. Coconut bay is just down the beach and is not as nice. This is a good place to meet people and to just relax, or join the locals for a very competitive afternoon vollyball match. There is good snokling nearby and some good short hikes. They are really working hard to improve the place, and have recently built a huge wooden deck right near the water. All meals are served here, and this is where the night life on the island occurs. The food is good, and the people very helpfull. The price including meals is $F45 per night for dorm. Email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hostel on Naviti Island
Although it's pretty basic, I really liked it here, The staff are so friendly and really try to do everything they can to make the guests here welcome. It's a pretty small set-up they have: when I visited, in April 2005, there was only room for 11 people, and the most people staying there at one time was 6. So that made it a lot more intimate and friendly than other places I've stayed. They run daily activities, which include village visits, snorkelling trips, and lessons in local crafts such as basket weaving and spear fishing. The accomodation is simple but clean, and the location is perfect - right on the beach on a beautiful lagoon. As with most budget accomodation in the Yasawas, the cost of accomodation includes 3 meals per day, which are delicious, and electricity is only available between 6 and 10pm. I would definitly recommend this place, especially if what you're really after is some peace and quiet.
Best holiday ever
We just got back from the Naviti Resort on the 23/02/06. It was the best holiday we have had. They get you into the spirit as soon as you get there. The Resort is absolutely gorgeous. The new pool is beautiful. I strongly recommend The Naviti to anyone. The people are so lovely. Just dont forget to say BULA to everyone you see. Definitely go for the all inclusive deal. You cant go wrong. It is the best. The food the drinks everything is included in the price. The variety of food is absolutely delicious. You dont need to spend anything extra. You dont even need to carry a wallet around. The safes in the room are excellent for storing the cameras and anything else you dont want to leave lying around. The rooms are beautiful and very clean. Heaps of activities to do for adults and kids. We went with our 2 kids, 8 and 4 year old and they loved it. They did not want to come back. We will definitely be going again. The nightly entertainment is excellent both for adults and kids. Naviti is definitely a 5 star resort.
We we returned on 13th May 2006, we stayed at Naviti resort for 4 days then Sonaisali Island resort for a further 5 days
The Naviti was great we are both early 30's and we both really enjoyed it .
This resort is perfect for relaxing, there are not many activities or cruises worth going on from here though.
I would recommmend hiring a car and going to Suva for a days trip this will cost around $90 AU which will include full insurance.
During our stay we got a massage$60 each bobo massage, hired the car,went snorkelling which was great this is recommended and is free.
We were silly enough not to get the all inclusive package (just got the brekies) and meals were expensive not much choice but to have the buffett at $38 per person so dont make the same mistake!!.Food was Ok not great but not much seafood whcih is what I was hoping for they have this only one night Friday I think (check with resort)
The pool bar was great and ocean is clear here so warm to swim in.
Lots of kids but this was great everyone was having a great time and no tantrams, but I am getting clucky.
Staff were very happy and pleasant, weather was very warm and we took the wrong clothes we are both fair skinned and if you are too make sure you invest in some long sleeved tops/pants very light weight indian style before going as it is very hard to avoid the sun here and I couldnt find anything in the shops.
There are no shops near this resort so dont think you can go out to eat elsewhere!!
We were put in the new wing of the resort whcih was lovely, furnishing quite modern and the room had a great balcony, the finishings will shock the keen renovator though they really have no idea how to grout or to clean properly but when we went to the 4 star Sonaisali resort it was 10 times worse than the Naviti so I wouldnt worry too much.
Over all fantastic and I can recommend this resort to couples, and families.
great family holiday
our family -2 adults, girl 7 , boy 5 have just returned from 7 night stay at Naviti resort. I would not hestitate to recommend this hotel to anyone especially families . The all inclusive package is the way to go . The food is plentiful and of a good quality, mostly buffett style. We also ate at the other restaurants on several occasions, The Bamboo Terrace chinese and the Talei Restaurant.These were also included in the package and were very nice. Be sure to book at reception on the morning you want to go there. The kids dinner was also good usuall pasta,pizza, chips,fish, chicken -(what else do kids eat !). Lunch was also a buffet style but dont forget that you can order of the menu at lunch also - burgers, club sandwiches, etc we did this most days , they also have a kids menu at lunch - hot dogs burgers etc .
the new pool is fantastic as is the swim up bar and the children enjoyed the novelty of ordering their own drinks and sitting in the bar. We utilised th kids club only once during the day as the kids wanted to be close to the pool and beach , but used it every night as did most people. They had fun activities including dance competitions every night followed by movies etc. They also have a games arcade if you want to fork out all your coins>this was our 5year old sons favourite place, but he didnt know if the machines had money in them or not!. The restaurants(not Bamboo terrace) and bar are centrally located across the courtyard from th kids club area so you can see the kids at most times if you want .The lounge bar had entertainment each night followed by a disco till 12- 1 am,
Make sure to book early for the coral viewing and sunset cruises as we didint and missed out- this was a little dissapointing . My husband and daughter snorkelled every day and she loved it. Wait for low tide to walk out to the reef its easier than swimming. She also got her hair braided, go to the blue hut across the road or to the village at the end of the resort as it is cheaper( $35 at the village and $50-60 at the resort) . There was activities every day to join in although we were happy just relaxing by the pool and beach, lots of people participated and the staff were very friendly and got everyone going.
We had our last night in Nadi as we had to be at the ariport by 7.15 am but in hindsight we would stay at the resort and just get up extra early (, about 5.15am. bus) It didnt sound appealing when we booked but our last day was a bit of a waste and we had to get up pretty early anyway. Also try to arrange private transport from the airport if you can as the shuttle services drop in to most hotels along the coast and its much better going straight there , especially with kids and arriving at Nadi 8pm for 1hr 30min trip to Naviti. We stayed in the Suva wing , this was in the old part and the rooms were clean and tidy although the bathroom was a bit tired and in need of a re vamp (not really a problem) I didnt see in the rooms of the new wing but the outside looked vey nice.
There was a wide range of ages of people there at the time we were and all seemed to be enjoying themselves. I would not hesitate to recommend th Naviti to anyone and value for money was excellent. If you want 5 star stay somewhere else but we had a fantastic time and look forward to returning soon.
Great Family Value
We stayed at the Naviti for 9 days from Boxing Day till past New Year.We are a family with children aged 9 and 11 years. The value of the All Inclusive is fantastic and would recommend this resort to anyone with children, although at this time of year there is of course plenty of them here which can be a bit noisy at times. I agree with other reviews that if travelling at School Holiday times to definately book into activities and some of the Restaurants early or you may miss out and have to go another day if you are still there. All of the building extensions should be finished by April (Easter) we were told. We met two families that were already staying in the new Villas and they looked great and just that little bit more upmarket and quiet if that is what you are after. We played a fair bit of golf which was fun as my husband is a golfer so we tagged along for the exercise as there is so much food and drink you can have. New Year was great as they had a huge fireworks display and the kids loved it. We stayed in the Suva Wing and it was fine. We have been to Fiji many times and have stayed at a different place each time but we are now planning this years trip back to the Naviti for New Year 2007!
The best value available
Just returned from a week at the Naviti. Excellent room, metres from new pool with ocean views. New buildings and bures not open yet. Food and wine etc great value, but Chinese restaurant not so good the night we went. Book in early for each activity, make sure you attend church in village next door on Sunday for real Fijian friendliness. Try to stay in the Nadi wing as the Suva wing looks out onto island being created by diggers. Nadi wing has old and new pool and activity centre etc. Great stay overall.
Naviti Resort, Fiji
Fiji is the place for total relaxation, with it's golden sands and the friendly staff who tend to your every need. You need not leave the beach to be served with your favourite drinks.
Every second night, the local Natives perform the famed Fijian Meke. Unlike the Polynesians Fijians, who are Melonesians, deo not dance the Hula. In fact most of their traditional entertainment centres around "Sitting and Dancing"
Fijians must be the friendliest people on earth. In particular, they love children and the children soon realise this and heve no fear of them, instead there is total trust.
"Entertainment during dinner."
This quartet of Natives singers entertained us each evening at dinner. Their music consisted of guitars, ukuleles and their wonderful harmonising. Most patrons stayed behind long after their meal was eaten, to just listen.
On our second last evening, the quartet presented us with a farewell leigh. It was to show their appreciation as we wetre one of the last to leave each night. So much did we enjoy their singing.
"Our last dinner."
Our last evening was very memorable, with our friend, Pio, catering to our every wish. The food was exceptional and we were spoiled in evry sense of the word.
Nellie was our waitress on that last evening. She is also a member of the singing group. One of the most friendly natives at Naviti. It was our opinion that she was looking for a husband and move to Australia.
Some of the staff singing Isa Lei for us. It is the most famous of Fijian songs. It is sung for many occasions, in particular as a farewell song.

Re: surfing near navit resort
OK, I think you are asking if there is any surfing around the Naviti Resort.....yes?
If so, yes there is. There is surfing all over the Coarl Coast, but it is not spectacular. Here is a quote from the webpage of nearby Rydget Hideaway.
SURFING: At Hideaway Resort there is a perfect right hand reef break within an easy 100 meters paddle from your bure. The surf runs year round with a peak season between May and September
