The resort also boasts the Pacific region’s largest lagoon style free-form pool, which features a unique diving pool and separate children’s swimming section highlighted with two-story water-slide. Additional resort facilities include a tranquil day spa, exclusive white-sand beach, a variety of retail outlets pus a children’s club incorporating local pastimes such as Fijian art and music. Resort guests also have access to the Denarau Golf & Racquet Club with its 18-hole golf course and 10 tennis courts.
