Rated 4 out of 5 by sw17 An architecturally, beautifully designed resort.
An architecturally, beautifully designed resort.
Large open spaces, perfect for children to run around. Lovely pool area, child friendly, but also with individual plunge pools that create a more intimate pool setting - nice for couples.
Depending on your holiday style, if you're wanting to relax, spend your days by the pool, enjoy lovely meals, and have a few sneaky cocktails, this is a lovely resort to do it at.
Also walking distance to the local marina where you can sit along the boardwalk and look out to the luxurious yachts and cruisers. Helicopter rides are available if you would like a better view of the area.
Lovely little area to walk around.
There is a large inflatable water park that comes to life during the days - perfect for keeping the children occupied, but a bit of fun for the adults as well. Along side that is a golf driving range & mini putt putt.
Otherwise, just going for a nice walk around the are... check out the modernised houses, the mansions on the water with their own jetty's and luxurious boats, take it all in. If you're too tired to walk back, a taxi from the marina will cost you approximately AUD$6 or AUD$7 otherwise you can jump on the open Bula Bus for an all day pass of AUD$8 (a great idea for families if you think you might go to and from a couple of times during the day).
A wonderful area, nice to relax & close enough to the airport.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sshakespeare This Hotel has Friendly Staff
We stayed recently at the Westin and we liked everything except for the beach access. All of the resorts have limited access to the ocean based on the way Denarua Island is made up. It would be much nicer if the ocean was the same as all of the remote smaller islands around the area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greeny Great Rooms and Facilities
The newly renovated rooms are fantastic, and the included buffet breakfast is superb. Overall this resort has great facilities including a very good gym. We have been to a number of similar resorts in the islands of the south Pacific, and this one has all the features we look for and is well priced in comparison to the others we have stayed at.
The only issue for us is the price of the restaurants at the resort. We have our meals outside the resort, and do so at other resorts as well, as we find all resorts overprice their onsite venues. I am sure the quality of the food is very good, but the prices are way too high to use on a regular basis, and thus we can't comment on the meals there.
Overall a great experience, and we will definitely return to the Westin when we go back to Fiji.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TedII Good times at Westin, Denarau Island, Fiji
We spent a week at this resort and found it had everything we could want for a relaxing holiday. The pool area was lovely, the staff members were fantastic and the grounds were beautifully kept.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JackinCanada Westin Beds are the best
Our stays at The Westin Denarau Resort in Fiji were very comfortable. The facility is beautiful. The staff are very warm, friendly and helpful. The beds in our rooms were the most comfortable I have ever slept in anywhere except at another Westin hotel in North America. The only issue was with the food at the main restaurant. Not only was it extremely expensive, but the quality (except for the breakfast buffet) was surprisingly poor. This led us to seek our dining opportunities outside of the resort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tezza11 expensive but poor accommodation
We thoroughly enjoyed Westin Hotel and Fiji except for our accommodation. We stayed in an Ocean Front Room (expensive cost) for 5 nights. We found the airconditioner which we switched on low to be extremely loud. We turned it off and wanted to put the ceiling fan on. The fan did not work and had to be replaced. We had no hot water on our last 3 nights, and also one of those nights we had NO WATER at all for 3-4 hours, having to use the toilet in the lobby area. What upset me the most was it was my wife's 40th birthday during the stay at the Westin. I was not impressed at all with the quality (or lack of)of accommodation. Upon complaining on checkout we were discounted $100 Fiji money from our bill. Considering our inconveniences throughout our stay I believed this amount was minimal at the least.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KeithRJ Maintenance work woke me up
Actually, I was extremely disappointed that our room was right outside an area where they were renovating, and on both Saturday morning and Sunday morning we were woken up at 8am by trucks and timber sawing. So no, it was not relaxing at all. I do not think Westin should have put any guests in those rooms. One visits Fiji for relaxation.
My "No" recommendation is based on this specific experience. Apart from that, it was a lovely hotel, even though snacks were ridiculously expensive.

Stayed in a recently renovated room.. much brighter and cheery than previous décor. Bring muscles to open balcony door/s... still near impossible without 2 hands. Managed to put the fly-screen on its sliding- rails as no-one else could be bothered. TV "Guest Service" menu function didn't work: never has in my last 5 stays!.. why bother? Service Express available and helpful as alternative. Always great Westin Heavenly Beds. Housekeeping has picked up its act which was good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Av80 Ok but not the romantic setting we hoped for
the hotel overall is good however we paid for the garden view room which is a long walk to the main hotel and eating areas. I had medical issues and thus the walk from one end of the hotel to the main lobby was a difficult task, also walk from car park to room was a hike. the room itself was great however the bathroom was way below expectation for the reputation of hotel. the bathroom felt more like a cheap motel rather than a hotel. also although the garden was view was OK, we mostly kept room doors closed due to construction being undertaken on rooms other side of garden area. the hotel grounds were nicely kept and staff were friendly. unfortunately our stay was during power outages and thus a lot of the facilities powered items were unusable, but this was not due to hotels fault. was not the romantic weekend as we hoped

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cillian2 Very pleasant
Bring black out mask (like those you get on planes) because there's no curtains (just shutters) and it's very bright.
When having drinks poolside, be sure to ensure your server is being served from the Meke Lounge rather than the Steakhouse as you will be charged more for the same drink from the Steakhouse
Bring your own conditioner, the one provided is no good
Don't be fooled by the spa... looks lovely but the water is freezing cold
Otherwise very enjoyable stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Louise50 Authentic looking Fijian Resort
The Westin offers a genuine and authentic Fijian village atmosphere, with roomy accommodation, comfy beds and pleasant gardens. I particularly liked the lap pool which offers a quiet and shady environment, with very comfy lounges. The buffet breakfast offers everything!! Entertainment features nightly as does a spectacular sunset! The staff are friendly and helpful. Overall I enjoyed a very relaxing holiday at (in my opinion) the best Hotel in the area!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frankie52 Our Westin Deanarau stay
We were disappointed with the "tiredness" of the room we had. The tiles on the outside of the bath had been patched (badly) the shower did not work - very low pressure until we complained), the toilet continually flowed water unless you gave the cistern a hefty thump, there was no bottle opener in the elaborate bar set up - wine glasses, champagne flutes, swizzle sticks and napkins but NO bottle opener. The compendium for the hotel was accessible through the TV - but no - the card started that you switch on the TV and select the MENU button on the remote. No menu button on the remote - even the staff could not get the compendium up! Although the room had air conditioning, there was also a fan available - this had no dial so we could not use the fan.
Having said all that, the bed and pillows were very comfortable and the staff really friendly.

Staff and facilities completely met or exceeded expectations during our 10-day visit. Westin shares its facilities with the adjacent Sheraton, and has privileges with the Denarau Golf and Racket Club. Pools are great, beach fronts are not, and prices are resort high. The golf course and staff are great. Note that some of the water activities (scuba/snorkel) are not available at the resort or island and must be booked out of the Island marina.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Momomit poor billing. Inexperienced reception staff
We stayed in the Westin for one night with another couple, two double rooms were booked. On arrival we were told that the accommodation would have to be paid on one bill ( by the person who booked it) . Also our food and beverage bills were totally incorrect.Charges had been made on both bills for the same items. Also the bills were presented to the wrong people. As we were in a hurry to get a flight we did not realise this till afterwards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Slovenia Price of restaurant
We were really shocked by the price of the restaurants within the hotels. We felt they were expensive for what you got. Staff we always happy except our last night when we ate at the Wet Edge which we spoke to the duty manager that night and she said that tha staff apologized for how my wife was treated. But still it was disappointing to be treated that way since it has never happened in our previos four time we have visited Figi.

It accommodated our little family of four perfectly allowing the kids to have a swim while mum and dad could enjoy the facilities and also keep an eye on them. The service and the people are outstandingly helpful and friendly. Great food at the steak house and great evening entertainment and drinks in the meke lounge. Everything we needed from organising tours to simply getting directions. Love love loved the Westin!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Meza Cost of dietary requirement
Unfortunately on arriving at your hotel I requested Soy milk be bought to my room as I am dairy intolerant. I was advised to go and buy it from the local store. I was very surprised as I have travelled the world and never been told to buy my own. The store did not have any soy so when room service delivered they charged $21.95 for one glass of soy milk. This is outrageous so I won't be staying again at your hotel.

Westin Denarau is in a great location, right beside two other resorts with many pool, bar,dining choices, and the marina. Gymn is well equipped and well located. Breakfast is very good, and the lunch choices range from poolside to cafes to restaurant style. Day trips are easy, with all offshore options within walking distance of hotel.
Great spot and clean and modern, served by relaxed friendly people.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mostyn Excellent hotel/resort
I stayed with a friend for 5 nights and we both decided this was the best place on Denarau Island. Excellent rooms, close to the golf club, accessable to the port and not far from the airport. The staff were friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast first class. As smokers we were pleased that there were areas set aside for us to have a puff. However the "plus 20%" policy was a bit disconcerting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penndo Well worth visiting Westin!
We are just back from a short trip to Fiji. We stayed at the Westin Denarau and would highly recommend it - breakfasts were delicious, rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly maintained (we wanted to kidnap one of the cleaners and bring her home with us - but thought she might miss her family and the warm weather!!). The staff were always helpful and friendly. It was a wonderful trip in all ways.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jerry82 Great friendly staff
We have looked forward to staying at the Westin for a couple of years now and were very happy with our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful even taking our infant while we ate a couple of times.
The room was always clean however the air-conditioning was very noisy.
We were looking forward to making use of the spa facilities however found these very expensive and preferred to wait to we got home. We expected to pay resort prices for food and drink etc however with that also expected top quality.
Every cocktail we ordered was was very average and most meals were a bit bland too.
We went to the steak house where my wife had the ravioli, it was tasteless. I ordered the 48hr steak rib which was fantastic. We went back and both had it the last night.
Great location just need some work on the Air-con and the food and drink, price is fine quality needs to be improved- especially the cocktails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sophie14 exceptional hotel and staff
the fiji people are the most welcoming and accomodating people we have ever met. The hotel was beautiful with the usual comfortable beds/pillows that the Westin is known for. The Westin suits everybody, young families/couples through to older generations. Magnificent pool area with relaxed dining options. The food was excellent in every restaurant that we visited.

Currently at the hotel as we speak. Room key did not work at check in so I had to get new ones, room safe was out of batteries, supposed to have free wifi in the lobby but doesn't (co-worker gets a free access code and they won't give me one since they said you need to pay), even the ice cream was melted at the ice cream shop so we couldn't get a milk shake.
