AccorHotels is helping Fiji transform into a year-round destination by revamping the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa into a modern & fun space for people of all ages (& all marital status).

Officially underway is a 12-month multi-million dollar refurbishment for the Denarau-based property, which aims to enhance the overall guest experience through new and exciting additions such as a beachside bar and Denarau’s first nightclub.

Yes, Denarau is finally getting a place where adults can drink and dance until the early hours of the morning, or in this case, 1.00am.

The Breeze Bar will be upgraded from a cocktail bar to a late night venue where a DJ will play from 9.30pm every night.

Get that party started!


For those disappointed over the loss of a cocktail bar, wipe away those tears because the property’s exclusive adults-only Waitui Beach Club is being expanded to include 24 new beach cabanas, a welcoming arrivals area, an undercover dining area for 40 guests AND a beachside cocktail bar.

To access the Waitui Beach Club, you just need to book one of the Waitui Beach Club’s guestrooms or suites, which will also receive major refreshments.


Between April and June next year, the resort will begin upgrading its guestrooms starting with it Luxury Rooms, then its Superior Rooms and Family Rooms.

All five restaurants and four bar outlets will also receive a few touch ups, including the main restaurant ‘Lagoon’, which will undergo a revamp to a fully interactive experience for both breakfast and dinner, while ‘Salt’ will renamed to ‘Rum Shak’ and will be transformed into a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant with a new beach bar.


Other major enhancements will be made to the resort’s entrance, lobby, gym, Fiji Airways desk and ticketing counter, conferencing rooms, ballroom, and the addition of a new yoga deck.

General Manager Vincent Macquet is excited about the property’s rejuvenation and is confident it will enhance the overall guest experience.


“I’d like to reassure our guests with holidays planned over the festive season, that works will completely halt between 22 December and 13 January for the Christmas/New Year peak period, to ensure our guests enjoy a relaxing break with no disturbance.”

Vincent Macquet, Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa General Manager
