Where to stay in Fiji on a budget

By Nadia Sheng,

While it’s not the cheapest holiday it’s one that screams “I deserve this” for working so hard this year! The epitome of holiday islands, look up “Fiji” in a synonym finder and you’ll find “paradise”.

You can find direct flights to Fiji from Singapore with Fiji Airways from S$600 starting from July onward! When to travelTravel in October and enjoy high seasons’ cheapest accommodation prices.

First Landing Beach Resort & Villas 

Room $ during Deepavali = S$239

Family-friendly all the way! With its beach-side location First Landing has ample space for all members in the family to stretch out and relax including the large apartments. The kids will enjoy more activities then they can handle at the Nalamu Nippers kids club while parents will enjoy a budget they can handle, knowing all to well family-trips are not cheap!

Stay in the most budget-friendly rooms – the Garden Bure (Fijian word for villa) or, slightly more expensive (yet still very affordable), Deluxe Garden Bure. Both feature high ceilings and warm polished timber floors, the latter containing a kitchen and lounge in addition. For a holiday to remember…take your little ones on a pirate private boat trip to the swashbucklingly named Treasure and Bounty Islands.

Naveria Heights Lodge Fiji

Room $ during Deepavali = S$175

We couldn’t believe one of Fiji’s top rated hotels is super budget friendly! So never assume you can’t afford luxury end hotels! Located on Fiji’s second largest island in the town of Savusavu, known as the “hidden paradise of Fiji”, guests will enjoy untapped nature, away from the crowds of Nadi.

Situated atop a hill overlooking the Savusavu Bay, the lodge has spectacular views matched only by lookout points on hiking trails. So you won’t miss out if you don’t want an active holiday, but if you do the lodge is the perfect base for your mountain biking and hiking escapades. Stay in one of three ultra private rooms with hammock equipped sun decks facing the water.

The Beachouse

Room $ during Deepavali = S$28

As the nondescript title perhaps alludes to The Beachouse is a off the beaten path, boutique sized family owned accommodation. Stay in a double room bungalow and, while private, feel like you’re living without walls in nature, with the open air bathrooms.

Kayak along the Coral Coast, ride the waves directly in front of the resort, or just watch the sunset from a hammock. There’s so much to be enjoyed in complete serenity with the added touch of the warm family environment – they have cute doggies (who know how to surf!)
