Best place for a cappuccino after a 10 hour flight? Sofiten Fiji Resort & Spa
November 3, 2011
Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa
General: Exactly what one would expect from a Sofitel. Clean, Modern, Luxurious, yet brings much of a “Fijian” feel. The resort is in a good location, close to the airport and Port Denarau. The lobby is open and welcoming. Accommodations are spacious, modern and comfortable. Sofitel has a great Café, which serves a variety of drinks and snacks. All of which are outstanding. The Café is an open air Café off to the side of the lobby entrance. It gets a refreshing breeze with relaxing views. One of the best cappuccino’s in Fiji.
Pros: Good location, and great quality hotel for clients who want to either stay in a modern hotel, and be close to the Port, or able to travel short distances to enjoy the rest of Viti Levu. Ideal for clients who want to stay 1 or 2 nights before traveling to an outer island, or after returning from an outer island. Quality of food and beverage is very good at this hotel and should be comfortable for guests.
Cons: The bathrooms do not seem to fit the style of the beautiful room. Shower/tub combination feels a little “old school”.
Overall: The great thing about the Sofitel, is that its location is perfect for a night or two, pre travel to other parts of Fiji. After the long 10 hour flight from LAX, it is nice to have a beautiful resort so close to the airport, and Port Denarau. I know the last thing I want to do is take another flight, or long boat ride after a long flight! I easily recommend the Sofitel be your first stay in Fiji! Freshen up and relax while you work on that unavoidable jet lag! And did I already mention the amazing Café and cappuccino? I thought so. Obviously it's THAT good.
