Fiji after-dark

Fiji is often thought of as a quiet place to flop and drop, and snorkel during the day, but when the sun goes down there’s still so much to do in this tropical paradise.



Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa in Denerau, is in the middle of a full-resort refurbishment, and will soon house a new nightclub (Denarau’s first) which is expected to open in the last quarter of 2019. 


For those who want a quieter evening, the property’s new beachfront rum bar, Suka, part of the new Waitui Beach Club, serves some 100 rums (over 40 of which are home infused) 


The brand new Pullman Nadi Bay Resort and Spa has added another option to Wailoaloa Beach, traditionally a backpacker area, Stay here and visit the adults-only Thai restaurant, then wander along the beach to Bamboo or Smugglers Cove for cheap, laid-back, local vibes, with kava and live entertainment some nights. 


The Rooftop Club 57 at Ramada is also along this stretch and is an alternative to the Pullman. The rooftop has panoramic views across Wailoaloa, affordable dining and bar options, great sunsets and a friendly local, expat and holiday crowd. Wailaoloa is a good place to bar hop. 



VOU hub in Denarau is a new product where, on Thursday to Sunday from 8pm, the whole family can relax and enjoy performances showcasing interpretative and traditional dance. A must-see in Fiji.


Nights at Malamala – every Thursday night at Malamala Beach Club (subject to seasonal changes) head over to the island to enjoy sunset and, when night falls, dance performances, welcome drink, happy hour, and a la carte dining.


And remember that Denarau Marina is not just a place to transfer to and from the islands, but is also home to a few bars and cafes that get lively in the evenings. Visit Rhum-Ba, Lulu’s or Hard Rock Café for dining and bar options.
