view from the balcony of a hotel in suva

Suva, the capital of Fiji with a population of around 150,000, is a wet cosmopolitan city on the south east tip of Viti Levu about a three hour drive from Nadi Airport. The city is set on a pretty harbour backed by high tropical mountains but without a beach and mostly avoided by tourists although it is frequently visited by business travellers. Downtown Suva has plenty of historical buildings amongst the rapid addition of high rise office blocks and there's a good selection of hotels aimed mostly at business travellers. Suva has the best shops, restaurants and bars in Fiji. Suva also makes an alternative attraction to spend a day or night and to take in the other side of South Sea life - a rather hardened and somewhat edgy version of paradise.

Suva has plenty of budget motels and inns although the majority are quite shabby and serve the local clientele only. There are a few upmarket business hotels and tourist apartments mostly in Suva South which is the better option for tourists being close to the best restaurants and bars as well as the Fiji Museum. Suva North is distinctly seedier and several of the hotels offer rooms by the hour, especially along Robertson Road. Hotel rooms are seldom discounted yet the only time it is difficult to find accommodation is at Christmas and during the lively Hibiscus Festival (usually the school holidays in August), or when an international conference hits town.
