Who does Shangri La suit?

Shangri La Fiji suits families and those that want plenty to do in one spot, in a comfortable atmosphere. The resort has everything you would ever want from a plethora of activities to three swimming pools to various cultural attractions accessible on the mainland. Be wary, the resort also comes with droves of noisy kids.

It would not suit those wanting a quiet romantic getaway, a peaceful remote holiday, or those wanting the famed white pristine sand experience. There are plenty of other options for that, which you can find starting at our Fiji Resorts section.


Shangri-La Resort Fiji is located on it's own private island, Yanuca Island, just off the main island of Viti Levu. It's connected to the mainland via a 150m causeway, and is just 11km from Coral Coast's tourist hub town of Sigatoka.

Your options:

  • Hotel limousine - starting from FJ$126
  • Coach - $50 per person

All 442 suites and rooms are comfortable and tastefully furnished. The biggest factor in making your Fiji vacation/holiday is the location of your room, given the size of Shangri La Resort Fiji.

Those with young kids might want the ground floor and to be closer to the restaurants and pool(s), but will probably be noisier. Interconnecting rooms will suit bigger families.

For better views, opt for ocean view rooms or bures, it should be quieter but will probaby be further away from amenities.
