From its cavernous lobby to its massive lagoon-style pool, the Sofitel does things big. Standard rooms, while not to the same scale, are well-appointed with a king or two queen beds and particularly stylish bathrooms. Studio suites have Jacuzzis on their balconies and walk-in closets while ultra-exclusive executive and presidential suites also have living areas, refrigerators, and microwaves; presidentials also have a dining area. The Zen-like Elemis spa includes seven
bures with dual treatment tables, a steam room, and spa bath, and specializes in hot stone and four-hand massages. Among the dining options, the buffet-style Lagoon restaurant's seafood nights are renowned throughout the island and the V Restaurant is a serious gastronomic affair.

Loved our stay; but I prefer eating out. Better food for your $ and quality. Great pool, great drinks, great personnel. Our room was hot and the ac did not turn on the way it should. We complained a few times but nothing was really done. Overall it was a beautiful hotel but a lot of $. close to the pier too

I've stayed in the Sofitel chain hotel before in the U.S. and loved it. However, the Sofitel in Fiji was below my expectations and was a disappointment. The bed was not very comfortable and neither were the pillows. The room was pretty small for $230 a night and there were ants crawling all over the bathroom. On top of that, there was only a shower, no bathtub. I had asked if we could go to a room that actually had a bathtub (not knowing I had to
request such a thing) but no one ever got back to me. I did not like how the mini fridge barely kept things cold and how the small tv had poor reception and about 10 channels to choose from. My biggest gripe is that they advertise that each room may have 30 minutes of Internet a day. YET, after 4 or 5 minutes, every single time, I was kicked off the internet after checking but a few emails and the staff did not care when I expressed my frustration. Would not stay here again.
