Coasting along & ticking all the boxes, in Fiji’s stunning Momi Bay

by Monday, May 21, 2018

Guest Traveller Hannah Rodrigues loves reading and fashion and, at just 14 years old, is already a “huge lover of travel” – a lady after my own heart! Hannah says she has been fortunate to visit many destinations around the world including countries in Europe, North America, the Middle East, and Asia. She says she loves travelling “because it allows me to experience new culture, foods and traditions that take place in its country”. This week, Hannah writes for us about her fourth and “by far” her favourite trip to this country in the South Pacific, staying at the Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay, on Fiji’s Coral Coast…

The Fiji Marriott Resort in Momi Bay is a perfect getaway that ticks all the boxes. This destination is perfect for a break from busy city life and a great opportunity for a digital detox where you turn off all technology and just relax for a few days or a week or two.

Located in Momi Bay, it is around 45 minutes from Nadi, on Viti Levu – Fiji’s largest island, which means that you are tucked away in paradise away from the busy city of Nadi.

There are many facilities which make the hotel a great option for families with young and older children, or for couples who are looking for a honeymoon destination.

Facilities include:

  • The Quan Spa which offers a range of treatments from massages to facials;
  • A well-equipped gym, enabling you to keep up your fitness regime;
  • A kid’s club to care for your children so that you can relax for a few hours; and
  • A range of pools, including the adult pool, main pool and a children’s pool.

There should be something for everyone!

Another thing that’s important to mention about this resort is the wide variety of food available.

There are four eating options:

  • ‘Goji’ is the main restaurant which offers buffet breakfast and dinner with a different cuisine each night;
  • ‘Lagoon House’ is the poolside restaurant which offers a range of Italian and Mediterranean-inspired food during the day and throughout the night. It’s perfect for lunch while you sunbathe and for dinner, where you can dress up. Every Monday night, the resort puts on a fire-dancing show outside the ‘Lagoon House’ restaurant;
  • ‘Fish Bar’ is the most formal restaurant of them all and requires a booking, but it has the most spectacular views of the ocean and the gorgeous sunset, and a range of seafood caught in the Fijian waters;
  • The last option is ‘Lagoon Lounge’ which is primarily a bar serving a wide range of cocktails and other alcoholic beverages.

Hannah’s Five Top Tips For Packing For a Fijian Holiday:

  1. Books – I got through four in 10 days.
  2. Swimwear – Make sure you swim in the lagoon, it’s gorgeous!
  3. Casual beachwear – To wear while you’re around the pool and at breakfast.
  4. Formal clothes – For dinner and night time.
  5. Sunscreen – The sun can easily burn you, so make sure you are protected.
