Virginia or Ginny as known by everyone at Nadi Bay Resort Hotel came to Fiji from Bristol, England. She had been to Fiji before so this was not a new place for her and likewise her to everyone else. It was a break from work she needed and Fiji was like her second home away from home. It had been almost a month that she was here. To her being here for the first time made her come back to the hotel again and she said that she will always come around here whenever she got the opportunity.
“You can call it small yet this place is friendly and filled with people with big heart. The staff of this hotel go out of their way to help you when you are in need of anything. I personally decided that I don’t need to stay in a big extravagant resort to be comfortable. I think that you haven’t had the real taste of Fiji if you haven’t mingled around with the locals. This is like my second home. The owners are always around and that is very important at a place as you can always talk with them and get to know them”.
For Ginny this place was a DE -stressor as the entire environment will get you relaxed with soft music that you will enjoy the bright smiles on the face of every person around the place and most of all the quiet and private location.
“I love the food here. The chefs are so friendly and very talented in what they do. I really loved the tropical breakfast menu and not forgetting the delicious dinner. The presentations of the meals are great and each and every dish on the menu is delightful”, she stated.
“I have been on the Sigatoka River Safari, drank Kava and went on the Reef Endeavor cruise which was also very enchanting. I also went to a Fijian church service and what an experience that was for me. Some of the locals who are now my friends took me to Ice Bar and the Eds Bar. These places are great as well. I’ve been on the local buses which is very different from where I m from. The fact that everything is on ‘Fiji Time’ is funny yet things are done with care and I appreciate it”.
“I feel proud to be amongst the Fijians and it’s an honor to be invited around!”
Located in our spacious pool hall and game room are two pool tables and a dart board. It’s a great place to line up your money on the table and take on challengers from all over the world….NEXT VICTIM!!! Ideal at night or when we get one of those welcome afternoon showers,our pool room will be sure to make the introductions to others come easy. So plan to play a game or two and have fun to the max!
Another option that everyone seems to take advantage of is our home theatre where all the latest movies are shown daily and every night. We know movies are not high on the priority list when you are exploring a foreign country, but our Movie Room is still one of our most popular offerings. Hey, Hollywood doesn’t beat the real-life Fiji, but it can definitely distract you for a couple of hours. BONUS… Remember that Castaway (with Tom Hanks), The Blue Lagoon and Anaconda 2 were all filmed here in Fiji.
For those travellers looking to bump n’ grind, Ice Bar and the Ed’s Bar are invariably recommended. They’re just minutes away by foot from the Nadi Bay Resort Hotel and they will cater to all you club going needs.
Another place that travellers frequent include would be the Purple Haze or Haze 2 (a Bollywood themed nightclub that is popular with Nadi’s Indian population and tourists looking to catch a different beat and scene).
Unlike any places around the world, night life starts relatively early in Nadi – or any other place in Fiji for that matter. By 10pm things are generally going pretty full- on. Before that, plan to enjoy a game of pool with your friends or even cocktails outside watching the people pass by.
The Nadi night scene is fun, it’s casual and the locals love to chat, so just come on in and raise your glass to the enjoyment that you will have.
