The Anchorage Beach Resort is a lush, tropical paradise on mainland Fiji. Beachside villas and two bedroom apartments are spacious enough to house an entire family. Enjoy the Fijian sunset from your private balcony or a meal at the casual beach restaurant. Parents will appreciate alone time thanks to professional babysitting services. Kids love the lagoon pool and playground, along with lei making classes and Kava ceremonies. Families can spend time together visiting the Sleeping Giant Gardens, mud pools, and zip lines. The five island hop and Beachcomber Island excursions are also fan favorites, along with SCUBA classes and snorkeling.

The most disgusting place I have stayed at. Had oceanview room which you couldn't see the ocean because of the trees. The taps were falling off in the bathroom. Only 1 tv channel worked. 1 sheet on bed and I couldn't get a blanket from anyone! Only had 1 tiny bedside light that worked and when i went and asked for a light globe was told the maintenance department had to do it and they were finished for the day!!!!! The swim up bar i dont think its been in operation for a LONG time. Was promised a compendium for the room as it had all activities and entertainment in it. Well it never turned up and then i was told if we want entertainment we would have to go to first landing resort. Then there was a train track through the resort outside our room that goes at all hours of day and night. Not safe if you have young kids or if you want to sleep. We were suppose to be there 4 nights but checked out after 1 night as it was not as described at all. Was refused a refund and unless it comes through we have taken it further. This place is a scam. Its a hostel not a resort.
I booked the Anchorage when I impulse booked a holiday to Fiji. Next time I’ll probably stay on Denarau but this was okay.
First things first, there is neither a beach nor is this a resort. It most closely resembles a holiday park with private rooms.
The website is full of details that actually simply aren’t true, or are outdated.
-the ‘ocean front’ room had a train track, row of trees, two paths, a pool, and a row of cabanas between the room and the ocean
- the ‘beach’ is a stretch of sand visible at lower tides. Reasonably pretty in its way, but not useable as a beach per se
- the ‘welcome drink’ was a choice of two juices, the same ones free at breakfast
- the ‘breakfast’ was like a cheap school camp - cereal, milk, toast you had to make yourself in ancient toasters, an array of spreads and a bit of fruit, with juice, tea, coffee
- very secluded, hard to get anywhere without a car or being on the water
- the food from the restaurant is edible, but not great
- the cabanas are kinda filthy
- everything is run down. Everything. Sorely needs some TLC
- the wifi is pretty bad, even for Fiji
- great day trips - I did Denarau and Beachcomber. The boats were used on Heartbreak Island which was a bit of a laugh :)
- Vale ( I hope I got that right!) in the spa is a gem - superb massages and customer care. The boat staff are all excellent as well.
- the staff all genuinely try - they are friendly and make the most of what is possible where they can. I donated to their staff fund
, and I hope they are able to use that money for treats.
- the room was huge, the aircon worked, and the servicing was reasonably reliable
It’s worth noting that the sugar cane train runs at any hour of the day or night literally in front of the property, and this was a bit of a shock to see.
It’s also worth noting that I spoke to loads of people who go there regularly.
- not a resort
- no luxuries
- cheap option that you can still have a decent holiday at
I wouldn’t stay there again, until it’s had some attention, the website is really-presented honestly, and the tweaks are works out. But nothing was shockingly bad, it was what it was.
Oh and take insect repellent. It’s the tropics. I got bitten. It happens, but be prepared!
