Viti Levu is the largest island in the Republic of Fiji and base for the Nadi International Airport. It is where the capital city of Suva is located, and thus where most of the Fijian population is. For those wanting to stay in the city longer or at least find a place to rest before continuing on to other islands, the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa in Denarau Island is a great option. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the menu offers local and standard favorites, and the beach is a haven for relaxation after the long plane ride.
I got a room for the day since I arrived too early in the morning to take any of the connecting flights to the other islands and really needed a rest from my 16-hour journey between NYC and Fiji. It was the best choice and the views weren't bad either.
