Located in the South Pacific Ocean, the 320 island nation of Fiji is one of the favourite tourist destinations in the world. The tropical islands boast moderate temperatures and humidity, coolest between May and November, and hotter between December and April.
The local time in Fiji is +12 Greenwich Mean Time. The official language of Fiji is English, though Fijian and Hindi are also widely spoken. The currency is the Fijian dollar.
Denarau Island is located on the west of Fiji's largest island, Viti Levu, near the Nadi International Airport. Viti Levu is the location of Fiji's capital city of Suva, and is home to three quarters of the population of the Republic (about 580,000).
Thanks to the geography of the island, with a north-south mountain range dividing the Viti Levu into roughly equal sides, the eastern side of the island experiences heavy rainfall, while the western side is markedly drier. The centre of the island is coverred in tropical forests and includes the nation's highest peak, Tomanivi, at 1,324 meters (4,344ft) above sea level.
Denarau Island is the largest integrated resort in the South Pacific offering a variety of accommodation, activities and investment options. Only 20 minutes from Nadi International Airport and 8 minutes from Nadi Town, it is the home of 4 premier resorts, a world class golf course, tennis complex and Port Denarau.
Holiday makers have a choice of 3 distinctly different Sheraton Resorts and a WorldMark on Denarau Island by Trendwest. These properties are located side by side on absolute beachfrontage. Accomodation is also available at the Golf Terrace Apartments located within walking distance of Port Denarau Marina.
Port Denarau is Fiji's latest gem, a retail and commercial centre offering the best mix of services and retail shopping anywhere in Fiji. In particular the food offering is nothing less than sensational, with a dozen different food experiences, each with views across the water towards the stunning sleeping giants.
Port Denarau Marina also acts as a major departure point for cruises and transfers to the Mamanucas and Yasawa Islands, off the coastline of Denarau Island.
