About Fiji

We love Fiji and could go on for ages extolling the virtues of the wonderful warm climate, crystal clear waters and world renowned Fijian hospitality. We know a lot about Octopus Resort but here’s what the experts say about Fiji and the South Pacific region.

Facts from The Lonely Planet Website for the Traveller

Visas: Most travellers will automatically be issued a four week tourist visa upon arrival. This includes travellers from most Commonwealth countries, most North, South and Central American countries, Western Europe, Israel and Japan. The visa is issued free of charge and you won’t have to pay for any subsequent extensions.

Raffles Hotel – Nadi Airport

When we fly in and out of Fiji we stay at Raffles Hotel across the road from Nadi International Airport , a lovely Oasis in close proximity to Vuda Marina. Raffles has it’s own restaurant and bar, and of course a very nice swimming pool.

When to Come

Its mild tropical climate means that Fiji can be enjoyed all year round and it is a popular escape from the winters in both the northern and southern hemispheres. Perhaps the best time to come, however, is in the dry season or ‘Fiji winter’, from April to November. This time of year has cooler temperatures, less rainfall and humidity.
