View from my balcony at Sheraton Fiji Resort
After my journey to the Mamanuca Islands, I stayed at the Sheraton Fiji Resort because it is so close to the airport and the sunset! There are five in the BonVoy Marriott family so close to the airport and the beach. It was the perfect spot before my early morning flight to Vanuatu.

The pools at Sheraton Fiji Resort
I loved the flagship Fiji Airways Premier Lounge at Nadi International Airport! The living green wall on the way into the lounge sets the tone for a beautiful experience. I enjoyed Fijian hospitality and having space to relax. There were many food choices including an international buffet and several gluten free options. You can even have a massage!

There is a special room for children and many places to sit, eat and re-charge yourself and your devices. There is an area with computers in case your did not bring your own.
