The Warwick on The Coral Coast: Luxury Resort Accommodation in Fiji

The Warwick Resort can be found along a stretch of golden sand beach and crystal clear lagoons in the heart of Fiji’s Coral Coast.

We recently spent a very relaxing week here and have nothing but positives to say about the whole experience. The service from the staff was outstanding and we were made to feel like nothing was too much to ask. Everywhere you looked you were greeted with a big “Bula” hello, it was so nice to feel so welcome.

We visited during the cyclone season and expected some bad weather, during our stay we were resort-bound for a full day as a Category 3 Cyclone was approaching the area. During this testing time for the resort and the staff, we were made to feel extremely safe and well-informed. All staff from the waiters to managers should be applauded for the way they handled themselves at this time. It was from this day that I knew I would be back to visit The Warwick Resort again.

Getting to The Warwick Resort

The resort is located on the Coral Coast, halfway between Nadi and Suva. Fiji’s largest island, Viti Levu, is where Warwick Fiji calls home.

 

To get there you can organise a transfer through the hotel or for a cheaper option you can catch the local bus like we did. It’s around a two hour drive from Nadi Airport. Note that the buses are mainly used by locals and can be quite run-down and cramped, I’d still recommend trying it out if you are looking to save money.

The local bus picks you up from the Nadi airport and drops you right near the front of the resort, it costs around $7.50 AUD (which is $12.00 FJD). This is a much cheaper option than getting a taxi or a private transfer and can save you upwards of $100 AUD.

If you do want to, you can organise a transfer through the resort for $105 AUD ($165 FJD) this is for one car that can fit 4 passengers).

The facilities at The Warwick Resort

The resort itself is beautiful with well maintained facilities, it has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing resort stay. We stayed in one of the garden rooms that would be be perfect with families with two children or couples who like a lot of space (with two double beds and a smaller trundle bed).

All of the rooms are quite spacious and were always very clean. Find more information on room types here.

A few extra things to note:

  • The resort is a cashless, meaning that you have a tab and charge everything to your room number. You then pay for your tab when you check-out. The staff are more than happy to give you daily print-outs of how your tab is tracking.
  • Complimentary Wifi in all areas of the hotel.
  • The resort is right on the beach with great spots for free snorkelling and kayaking.
  • There is an air conditioned gym on site with really great equipment.
  • It is a great place for families, with on-site kids club, nanny service and daily activities.
  • It’s also a great place for couples as there is an adults-only pool, swim up bar, spa and plenty of places to relax.

Things to do around the area

Fiji’s Coral Coast is renowned as Fiji’s Adventure Capital. There is so much to do if you want to experience the traditions, culture, nature and people of the Coral Coast. Here are 12 day trips worth looking into around the area:

I highly recommend dining at The Wicked Walu Restaurant at The Warwick Resort

One of the resorts restaurants, The Wicked Walu was an absolute stand out during our stay. It’s located on a small attached island 50 metres off the shore of the beach and was recently voted Fiji’s best restaurant. You can expect delicious seafood grills, char-grilled steaks and luscious desserts.

I highly recommend getting the cocktail of the day along with the shared seafood platter, it was so yummy! The Wicked Walu is open for dinner every night from 6pm to 10:30pm and is exclusively an adults only restaurant.
