First Landing Resort

Halfway between Nadi and Lautoka, the First Landing Resort makes a good choice for those that want to stay on the main island of Viti Levu.

While I haven't stayed here personally, I have visited multiple, and also recommended it to my mother when she was looking for a place to holiday in Fiji. It was a good choice for her, and she loved every minute! If I'm happy to recommend a place to family, then you can expect it's probably going to be up to standard. First Landing won't disappoint.

The Rooms & Rates

The resort is a little older, so not everything is in perfect working order. However, it’s kept clean and tidy, and the mature gardens surrounding the resort add a lot to the feel and character of the place.

There are some new villas that have been built recently that look really nice, although I didn’t get a chance to see inside any of them. The ones that I have seen and been inside (the older ones) look more than adequate.

Rates: The cheapest are the garden bures, and prices very significantly depending on the time of year. The cheapest time to go, is during October and November, where you can get a bure for FJ$187 a night.

This increases over the Christmas period, to the full price of FJ$515 a night. So if you can manage to plan your Fiji holiday for Oct/Nov you can make a significant saving on accommodation costs. It's also one of my favourite times to be in Fiji… the temperatures are nice and hot, but not too hot, and you are there ahead of the rainy/cyclone season. There are also less tourists around than over the peak June/July and Dec/Jan times.

Final Thoughts: Pros & Cons

Would We Stay Here? Yes I would be happy to book into First Landing. However, we would probably want to have a rental car so we could get out and about to explore the area.

Pros: Decent beach and pool, lots of activities, good food at the restaurant, island day trips pickups from the resort, marina next door for cafes and small supermarket, beautiful well established tropical gardens, snorkelling gear and kayaks are no charge for guests. Everything well spread out so the place never seems crowded. Not far from Nadi or Lautoka, for a day out shopping and sightseeing.

Cons: Only the most expensive bures or villas have a TV (is that actually a bad thing??), a bit isolated, although resort probably has everything you need. Not much swimming (other than the pool) during low tide.
