Welcome to the beautiful Fiji Coral Coast - Shangri-La's Fijian Resort, The Naviti, The Warwick Fiji and The Hideaway Resort! 

The Coral Coast is 80 kilometres of barrier reef beaches. It is on the sheltered southern side of Viti Levu and about half way between Nadi and Suva. The temperate climate and the great variety of accommodation - from International Resort to self-contained "bure" cottages - make it a popular tourist resort.

The resorts offer great recreation facilities, restaurants, cultural performances and night life, while the pristine waters and reefs create an underwater paradise for snorkelling and diving. You can throw in a line with the locals or take out a charter vessel or game fishing. There are some spectacular surf beaches too, and for those wanting to take in some nature, history and culture - visit the Sigatoka Sand Dune, where shifting sands and archaeological digs continue to reveal skeletons and pottery artefacts dating back to 15 BC or the Kula Eco-Park in Korotogo which displays rarely seen indigenous species.

Head for the hills into the beautiful Sigatoka Valley, aptly named The Salad Bowl of Fiji, a colourful patchwork of agricultural fields, Fijian villages, Indian settlements, temples and volcanic hills. It offers spectacular scenery and a fascinating history of the Tongan tribes who were the last to resist Christianity.  

At Tuvuni Hill you can walk amongst the ruins of an ancient Fort. The Cave Tour follows the Tongan trail to Naihehe Caves to see the spectacular rock formation and awesome reminders of the past. The same tour takes you for a river ride4 on traditional bamboo rafts. There is also a Waterfall Tour where you can learn about plant medicines on a rainforest trek, participate in authentic ceremonies with a village Chief and swim in a tropical waterfall.


For a little island run, Robinson Crusoe Island is fringed with white sandy beaches, and offers great snorkelling and pacific isles entertainment. To get there you take a single boat  ride or a sea plane which is based on the river at Sigatoka Town. There are also scenic flights of the coast, and islands and airport transfers to Singatoka and the Fijian Resort.


Yanuka Island with its white sandy beaches, colourful coral reef and a private jetty, only 45 minutes from Nadi International Airport, is one of Fiji's most popular and romantic islands.

Shangri-La's Fijian Resort on the 109 acre private land has been the perfect South Pacific paradise for more than 30 years now for people coming from all over the world. Offering an almost endless array of activities, privacy, spectacular sunset and warm Fijian hospitality, the resort is a favourite for a growing number of couples who savour the idyllic romance of this tropical destination.

Inspired by the design of a typical Fukuan village, the Fijian Resort's architecture blends local styles with modern comfort and convenience. The 436 elegant gu4strooms within the resort's five main wings have panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. For greater luxury, choose one of the four exclusive beach bures on the ocean front. Each of the rooms also have private balconies, air-conditioning, tea/coffee making facilities, in-room safe, en suite bathroom, hairdryer, toiletries, refrigerator, iron and ironing board, telephone and radio.


A wealth of sport and leisure activities awaits you. Try water skiing, by cruising, parasailing or spend a cool day by the resort's two swimming pools. Play a game of tennis day or night, have a round of golf on the Peter Thomson designed nine-hole executive golf course, or try lawn bowls on the 8-rink green. Windsurfing, sailing, fishing, bowling and cycling are some of the other activities you can enjoy. Or explore the colourful coral reefs of the underwater world with the resort's team of experienced PADI-certified instructors who cater for both experienced and inexperienced divers.

Discover the rich Fijian traditions and culture as you witness the solemn and momentous yaqona (kava) drinking ceremony, take time to listen to daily legend and myth telling, and watch the extraordinary firewalkers of Beqa Island or the colourful mekes (singing and dancing) of the nearby villages. Cycling tours through traditional villages are also organised to enable guests to experience first hand the Fijian way of life.

The resort's six restaurants and beverage outlets cater for all tastes. Fijian and South Pacific specialties are offered at the Golden Cowrie Restaurant. The Takali Restaurant offers a Mediterranean menu, and the Beach Bar and Grill and the Bilo Bar and Grill are ideal venues for a light lunch. Cool drinks and exotic Fijian cocktails await at the bars and late night revellers can party until the small hours of the morning at the Black Marlin Bar.

Being linked to the mainland by a causeway means guests can easily experience a number of wonderful attractions located close to the resort. Indulge in a ride on the Coral Coast Railway train, go on a guided trek into the lush tropical rainforest at the Biausevu Waterfall, or visit the Sigatoka sand dunes for a bird's eye view of the Coral Coast.

With everything you need for a perfect holiday, Shangri-La's Fijian Resort is a gem waiting to be discovered.
