    Default Fiji which resort

    ^ Yes Shangri-la was lovely. We went there for our honeymoon. They have mini golf, a games room, a playground , pools and if I remember correctly you could hire a babysitter. I'm not sure if there was a kids club.

    Free wifi, retail shops like Pandora, a hair salon, gift shops, ice cream shops. On some days they had hand made markets from the locals and staff.

    For parents there is an adults only pool with a bar, a spa and more bars

    Depending on what time of year you go, they do performances like dancing and fire twirling. I really can't speak highly enough of Fiji, it was just lovely

Fiji is such an amazing holiday with kids.
    Hi new hope

    Can you remember what the minimum age for kids club was? We have a three year old but think I read somewhere they have to be four to use the kids club without a nanny? Was that correct?

    I have been to Castaway more times then I can count; started going when I was 4 or 5, and now going this year with my kids: 3 and 1 (we did a day trip last year when we stayed at Raddison blu, so it technically won't be their first time to Castaway). No TV's, and great for kids. Food is great, and the staff treat you like family, and every time I go back there it's like I'm going home!
    So I guess I'm biased... But castaway is lovely!
    Raddison blu was good, you can't really swim in the beach, and the pool can get a little crowded, but it has good access to the marina for dinner (with the plus it's usually a bit cheaper then the resorts) or you can eat at the other resorts too. Best meals we had at the marina was by far at the Rhum Bar!

    Yep, that is correct. Minimum of 4 years old. The babysitting facilities were great as well with younger kids as they work around the kids club.

    We went for 8 nights and I honestly could have stayed another 8!

    We live rural so it's a 5.5hr drive to the airport so we make sure it's a lengthy holiday.

    I would do at least 8-10 days factoring in the days you lose on travel to and from home/resort

    We love octopus. It's so worth making the trip out to the islands rather than staying around Denarau or the Coral coast

    Castaway is fantastic!
