This is our fourth time back at Lami Bay Novotel, my previous review i had noted that some of the reception staff were not very friendly, I am so happy to say that this has changed, there are some new staff but the ones who had always been so friendly were still there and greeted us like family,
I have always loved the location of this hotel and I am happy to say that none of the good points of this hotel have changed.
Its not to far away from Suva town but you definitely feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Can't wait to return....

Great hotel to base yourself at for Business. Upgraded rooms are nice. Foyer is a good place to hold informal meetings. Food is acceptable. Menu could be changed regularly. Overall the hotel is good value for money.

Quite a decent accommodation for travellers, excellent for the family n single travellers. Good decent rooms, closer to Suva town, a 15min drive., along the Lami bay. For boat owners this is where you want to bring your boat.

Highly recommended

The friendly service here makes this hotel. They seem to be a committed team led well by gm who is hands on. This is my go to hotel in Suva. It is a little way out of town. But worth it. They have a free shuttle to town. The rooms are fine and the beds and pillows comfortable. The breakfast buffet by the water is a highlight.

Considering there is not much of Luxury resort style options in this side of the island, Novotel Lami bay comes as a saving grace offering the right amount of luxury without too much frills and fancies of the top end resorts. They don’t have a beach front but do have a beautiful bay that hugs the property and makes it a magical retreat to relax far away from the chaos of the capital city.

LOCATION: Located a bit away from SUVA town and around 40 minutes Taxi drive from SUVA airport. While it is a bit secluded , that is what makes this property a relaxing retreat

DINE + DRINK: Decent Restaurant and Lobby level Bar – both of which come with million-dollar views of the waterfront/bay. Great place to get a sundowner or Post dinner Drinks and chill while enjoying the other side of Fiji’s tropical nature. The restaurant serves some mean local dishes (the Chicken Curry and Roti were killer!)as well as a wide variety of international dishes.

ROOM: I stayed in 231 – which was a SUITE room- so this review is based on that; VIEW: Spectacular view of the entire bay and sail boats sweetly floating on the calm waters; SIZE: Very spacious Living room and Dining area and a separate Bedroom; AIR-CON: Perfectly functioning cooler that helped in setting the perfect room temperature; BED: Comfortable bed that played the expected part to put me to sleep; BATHROOM: Stand in shower; TOILETRIES: Lovely SPA quality cosmetics

FACILITIES: Not sure if they have a gym as I didn’t have time to check it out, but the Swimming pool is quite basic and nothing like what you get to see in the Hotel website’s glorified photos! But still a good pool to have a dip with nice views of the Bay

SERVICE: Friendly staff that took care of all my needs with a smile and made us feel well taken care of.

HOW WIRED YOU WILL BE: Free Wi-Fi that works all over the property, but was extremely slow in our room (probably because of its distance from the lobby). 2 different Plasma TV screens dishing out dozens of channels spanning sports, news, music, movies and a wide variety of entertainment in multiple languages

Bula Prasanna V,

Thank you for your fantastic and very thoughtful review of our hotel and location. I was so pleased to see that you really enjoyed your stay and even though you didn't use the gym (yes we do have a small one) you did manage to use the pool.

We would love to see you back again in the future and assure you of a very warm welcome.

Vinaka and kind regards
