You don’t have to spend a fortune to experience the lagoons, coral reefs, beaches and tropical forests that Fiji is famous for.

With luxury resorts and fancy spas, the sky really is the limit when it comes to Fiji’s luxurious accommodation – but this archipelago’s natural beauty comes for free. Stick to the mainland and you’ll find plenty of wallet-friendly places to stay. Although island hopping on a shoestring is also possible, just choose a rustic lodge by the beach.

Bedarra Beach Inn

This location will rival the most luxurious of resorts, set right on the lagoon in the heart of Fiji’s Coral Coast. The Bedarra Beach Inn has all the facilities you need, with a freshwater pool, cocktail bar, restaurant, and day spa. There’s even free snorkelling equipment and kayaks you can use to explore the coastline. Bright, well-kept, if slightly sparse rooms have a fridge, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and room service, though there are no TVs or telephones.

Located close to the riverside town of Sigatoka on the Coral Coast lies Tambua Sands. Just 25 secluded villas face the gardens or ocean with no neighbouring resorts. While the garden rooms offer mountain views, the beachfront bures have the advantage of their own pools. Hire a car to explore the best of Fiji’s largest island, from dolphin-spotting safaris to kite-surfing.

The Beehive Fiji

Centred around a large pool and deck overlooking the sugarcane fields and ocean, the Beehive is truly a quiet place to relax. Whilst there is a bar and restaurant, meaning you can spend a few days without having to head off site, a car is recommended for this pretty remote location. Simple rooms for families and groups are dorm-style with bunks and shared bathrooms. If you want a little more privacy, book the Queen Bee room, which is the only one with a private toilet and shower.

Don’t worry about the shopping, Fiji Lodge offers grocery delivery and packed lunches. Explore the second largest island of Fiji by bike or canoe.

What isn’t grown on site is sourced from local growers and fishermen, while the resort also uses solar energy and fresh water from the nearby mountain. Stay in the traditional Fijian thatched bures, though you should note that the shower and toilets are a short walk away. Opt for a villa for a more luxe option.

It is located on a hillside high above the ocean, around 5km away from Savusavu.

    Simple rooms but unbeatable facilities; that’s the promise of the Beachouse. With Fiji’s only craft brewery right on site, we’re inclined to think they mean it. Located right beside the beach and fringed by rustic jungle, this is perhaps most suitable for younger travellers. Simple rooms range from air-conditioned timber lofts and garden hut bungalows, to bunk-bed dorms for six. Here, you’ll have access to a free continental breakfast, daily yoga sessions, afternoon tea and scones, use of sea kayaks, and coconut-weaving lessons.

    Getting to Barefoot is part of the fun. Travel from Nadi Airport on the mainland via a two-hour catamaran tour through the Mamanuca islands. The Barefoot resort is deliberately uncomplicated and wholly focused on its location. Stay in a beachfront safari-style tent, or a larger bure, suitable for families. The property employs a full-time marine biologist. If you’re not already qualified, join the dive school and head out on some conservation dives to protect the reef. You’ll certainly see a few friendly white-tipped reef sharks while you’re down there.

    Located just across the road from Nadi International Airport, the Gateway Hotel makes a convenient pitstop for those making long journeys to reach Fiji.

Rooms – from suites to family rooms and singles – are retro modern, with charming wooden furnishings and patio spaces, perfect for stretching the legs after a long flight. Be sure to order a Fijian-Indian curry at the restaurant.
