A peaceful and secluded retreat for the independent traveller, SAWENI BEACH APARTMENT HOTEL is located on the only white sand beach in the Nadi/Lautoka area. The perfect place to get away from it all, Saweni Beach was the staging area for the ocean-kayaking leg of the 2002 ECO-CHALLENGE FIJI expedition race. Travellers looking for an alternative to staying in Nadi may prefer to spend their first or last nights at Saweni instead. Please note that due to Saweni's secluded and quiet location, this property is not recommended for people looking for a party scene.
Saweni offers a choice of self-contained air-conditioned or fan-cooled apartments, all with modern kitchens and regular maid service. All apartments are bright, clean and spacious, and offer quality accommodations at very reasonable rates. Travellers on a budget may prefer our bright and spacious 8 bed dormitory (see below for more details).
12 self-contained 1-bedroom apartments (either fan-cooled or with air-conditioned bedrooms), each with ceiling fans
and insect screens, large separate bedroom with queen-sized or twin-beds (that can be joined together), lounge and dining area, kitchen with gas stove, refrigerator and utensils, private bathroom with solar hot water, and spacious verandah. Linen and maid service are provided.
Our modern and spacious dormitory offers a total of 8 beds in 2 rooms, plus an open-plan kitchen and living area, and a communal bathroom with solar hot water. Bed linens and maid service are included.
MEALS: All apartments have kitchens and cooking facilities for self-catering. Most guests find it convenient to stock up on groceries in Nadi town before coming to Saweni to check in, as supermarkets near the airport are usually open quite late. Alternatively, Lautoka town (about a 15 minute drive/taxi ride from Saweni) is Fiji's second largest city and has large supermarkets and markets for fresh fruits/vegetables.

Assistance at Nadi Airport IMPORTANT: Since the closure of the Fiji Visitors Bureau at Nadi Airport, there is no impartial, official or government-sponsored visitors office at the airport. Please be aware that the only "information" now available at Nadi Airport is from commercial travel agencies who receive commissions for any bookings they perform.
Airport Touts There are a number of travel agents and touts operating from Nadi Airport who make a living out of "poaching" pre-booked clients from other hotels by attempting to divert unsuspecting travellers to alternative accommodation at properties that pay them high rates of commission. Please be aware that if you have a confirmed reservation at Saweni or any other property and you decide on the advice of these touts to either not show up at your prebooked accommodation or to cancel at the last minute, that you will be charged a no-show or last minute cancellation fee. Despite anything that the touts might say to the contrary, they do not have the ability to waive no-show or cancellation fees that may be charged by the hotels at which you have made a confirmed booking. If you experience any problems with airport agents or touts, please send us a note and we will take the matter up on your behalf.
To Make a Booking, please use the Reservation Form for personal service by one of our reservations staff (may take 1-2 working days) or if you are already in Fiji, please call us at our central reservation line (679) 330 8644 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm) or the hotel directly at (679) 666 1777 to make a reservation by telephone.
