Another winner in the prestigious Hotel Club Awards, the Shangri-La Fijian Resort was voted one of the top three hotels in the Pacific Islands.
The Shangri-La sits on the private 44 hectare island of Yanuca just 100 metres off the main island of Viti Levu. The resort faces the ocean and lagoon and has a wonderful white sand beach.
There are three pools, golf course, tennis courts, a fitness centre, endless water sports to keep visitors occupied, and beautiful landscaped gardens are for times when you just want to relax and smell the frangipani.
Guestrooms have balconies or patios with lagoon or ocean views, and are decorated in earth and warm yellow tones.
It's a very family-friendly place and there is the Little Chiefs' Club which is full of fun all day for children between the ages of two and 12.
Maybe the biggest decision of the day is where to eat and drink. Restaurants offer casual family fare to fine seafood dining and elegant international cuisine.
Refreshing cocktails, wine and cold beers are available on the beach or by the pool, and in the Black Marlin Bar, you can enjoy the resident band or DJ.
The latest addition at the Shangri-La is Chi, its own brand of spa. In traditional Chinese philosophy, ''chi'' represents the universal life source which governs well-being and vitality. It is believed that chi must flow freely within the body to allow good health to prevail. Therapies draw from metal, wood, water, fire and earth to create the perfect balance and all of that can be enjoyed in the Chi Village which has two rainforest treatment bures and four ocean treatment bures.
