Independent review for First Landing Resort, Nadi Rural, Viti Levu, Fiji Islands

first landing resort hotel location picture

First Landing Resort Fiji is located just 15-minutes north of Nadi Airport on a quiet point overlooking the offshore islands and adjacent to the Vuda Marina. This is a secluded spot set in tropical landscaped gardens amongst rural sugar cane farms. Picturesque white sandy beach but no swimming lagoon, with day excursions to the offshore islands from the resort and scuba diving. Ideal for couples looking for a quiet location on the mainland with easy access to the islands but at an affordable price. Could also be used as an airport transit hotel.
