“Always happy to stay”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

We spend several weeks of the year at the Rakiraki Hotel and have always enjoyed our time at the hotel. This year they have new management who I'm sure will maintain the positive familiarity of the hotel while enhancing the professionalism of staff and what the hotel offers.

Improvements are happening and we look forward to our visit in July.

Room Tip: Ask for down stairs as they don't have lifts.

We stopped in at the Rakiraki Hotel for lunch on a trip around Veti Levu
From the time we walked in the door, the service couldn't be faulted.All the staff were so friendly and helpful. We found it hard to say goodbye when we left. We hope to return later this year

wow - what a change to the previous "resort" we stayed at! Lovely staff - friendly and happy to talk to you, clean fresh sheets on the bed and lovely clean floors. no mess swept into the corners! Air conditioning in the room, hot water shower that didnt smell of Bore water - it is lovely!
close to town and comfortable - we'll be back!

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and were looked after beautifully.
Our room was basic but clean and comfortable. The pool was clean and thee was a tennis court and bowling green nearby. Most of all we enjoyed our drinks in the lounge - a comfortable area where it was easy to meet and talk with other visitors. Our main meals were delicious and the omelettes for breakfast were the best.

Room Tip: Upstairs you get a good breeze

I am about to return to Fiji for the 5th time soon........and there will be no relaxed time until I go back to Rakiraki and catch up with "old friends". The very next morning upon landing in Nadi, my partner and I will hire a car and head due north to Lautoka and then on the Kings Rd to Rakiraki.........about a 3 -4 hr drive. We have stayed at the Rakiraki Hotel twice before when we have traversed Viti Levu and can only say "you get what you pay for" and so never expected resort style accommodation in the north. And may I say it is CLEAN and TIDY.
But like all OVER Fiji, the people are always friendly and welcoming and we always want to go back. No, the rooms aren't 5 star and the pool is small and the menu not extensive.........but that is not why you go "off the beaten track" to where true tourist resorts are scarce. THIS is the real Fiji, and the towns and villages, sights and people that you meet getting there!!
OK the Indian manager is a little bit reserved.......... he is Indian Fijian. But all his staff are Fijian ........and they are just beautiful people. They all happily advise where the best boating is........and Ellington Wharf is the place to go to adventure out on a local little fishing boat to explore the surrounding islands...........what an adventure that is!!! And so CHEAP ......... compared to the Coral Coast or the very touristy Denarau (which could be the port of Cairns now).
We have been welcomed in to the local school next door to the hotel, we have played island rugby football with the local young men after work till dark and then been invited into their village next door which was an honour. We have found young children who we have befriended and taken lollies and treats to, met their families and held their newest babies.
It has been an honour to stay in Rakiraki Hotel and be able to mix with the locals so easily. So much so that on this visit to Fiji, we want to take some gifts to our new found friends by taking some Aussie books and treats to the school next door and to the familes that we have befriended.
The relaxation by the pool on Denarau can wait until we have made the trek back to Rakiraki on our return to Fiji next month.
And to the last reviewer of this delightful place, well done.....I agree with your endorsements wholeheartedly so just "Remember where you are and enjoy the moment".
PS......a warning to those now planning to go up there..........the easiest way to get to Rakiraki is up thru Lautoka on the western side of Viti Levu.........a much better road than the Kings Rd north of Suva. Believe me...........we have driven on them all.......in the wet and the dry!!

We spent 2 weeks exploring Fiji by 4wd staying at Rakiraki hotel for 3 nights.It's no the glitzy pseudo Fijian resorts to the south but a not overpriced genuine welcome haven at the north of the island. Staff and management, all very friendly and helpful, facilities clean and tidy, bed comfortable, pool warm and inviting, meals well presented and tasty. The chief even prepared a fresh water prawn curry (not on the menu) - delicious. Take the time and opportunity to talk to the hospitality training students from the pacific Islands who train in conjunction with the hotel. Visit the oldest sugar mill in Fiji.
Look- value from any experience depends on your contribution to it. Check your attitude, realise where you are, and experience a hint of colonial past in true Fiji.

My stay at the Tanoa Rakiraki Hotel was terrible.
After my first night we checked out and moved to Wananavu Resort.
The pool area is very small and very congested, however the park is very good.
The staff dont even smile at you when you check in.
The food is expansive and tastes horrible.
