InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort: Everything you need to know!
08 April 2019
The InterContinental Fiji is set on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches – Natadola, Fiji! A five-star beachfront resort with its own golf course, it pretty much checks all boxes for no-holds barred tropical island paradise! There isn’t one reason why the Intercontinental Fiji ranks amongst top ten in Fiji’s hundreds.
There are a handful! Set on the world-famous Natadola beach in Viti Levu, the resort offers something special to families, couples, honeymooners, experiential travellers and adventurers.
From Fiji’s Nadi International Airport, it is just a 40-minute cab-ride to the resort. Winding down Coral Coast’s picturesque roads is a sheer pleasure, though. One side of the road are the island’s lush forest-clad mountains – and the other is dominated by the crystal-clear expanse of the Pacific Ocean. Surrounded by pristine landscapes, any Fiji holiday gets a pretty hefty trailer of the fun to come.
The InterContinental Fiji offers travellers a choice of 266 rooms and suites to relax in, besides a number of specialty restaurants and bars. Additionally, it has a plethora of activities and experiences to choose from. There is even a kids’ club with their curated list of activities to keep them busy and happy for hours on end! The resort’s 18-hole championship golf course is internationally-renowned as is its luxury spa.
The beach, voted one of the best in the world, offers gorgeous swimming, snorkelling and surfing for travellers. The coral reefs form a protected lagoon and host a plethora of marine life to explore – perfect for whiling away hours!
InterContinental Fiji Coral Coast Accommodations – Rooms and Suites
The resort is spread over 35 acres, its luxe accommodations set amongst landscaped gardens and beachfront property. The 216 rooms and 50 suites offer increasing levels of comfort and decadence, but the warm Fijian hospitality remains impeccable regardless.
In rooms, guests can choose from Garden Rooms (also with inter-connected options for families and groups of friends!), Pool-View Rooms, Beachfront Rooms and Lagoon-View Rooms. The last two categories also have suite options. Each of the air-conditioned accommodations feature the best-in-class space, along with a choice of a king-size bed or double beds. The ensuite bathrooms are modern and come with shower/bath combos, premium towels, bathrobes and complimentary Pure Fiji toiletries.
Common rooms amenities also include high-speed WiFi, private terrace or balcony with Cleopatra bath and daybed, a refrigerator/ mini bar, complimentary tea and coffee making facilities, dry cleaning and laundry services, iron and ironing board, in-room safe, satellite TV, CD/DVD Player with BOSE sound system, iPod connection, 24 hour room service, maid service and a very helpful turn-down service. Oh, there’s a pillow menu, too!
Suites @ InterContinental Fiji
On the luxe side of holidaying, travellers can choose from Club InterContinental One/Two Bedroom Suites and the Natadola Suite. Each of the suites offers scintillating views of the beach and the sea, besides a raised luxury quotient. Also, guests can avail the services of their very own Itokani butler – now, that’s neat! All suites feature a separate lounge and dining area, along with an expansive outdoor balcony/patio. The private outdoor space pampers guests with a day-bed and the resort’s signature Cleopatra bath, while ground floor suites come with their own plunge pools.
Activities and Experiences @ the Resort
In Fiji, swimming, snorkelling, surfing and scuba-diving is amongst the best in the world. There is excellent swimming and snorkelling right off the Natadola beach. The coral reefs are alive with tropical fish; guests can spend hours underwater and relaxing on the silky white sand beach. Then, we do recommend horse-riding to explore the kilometres of Natadola. It’s a brilliant activity and we love it!
Then, the InterContinental Fiji boasts of three unique pools and a dive pool to boot. Do check out the adults-only infinity pool overlooking the Natadola beach. The resort also offers stretch yoga, beach cricket, an excellent jogging/ walking trail, beach volleyball, touch rugby, water polo and beach soccer. Guests can also drop by the resort’s dedicated Leisure Concierge for more ideas and options on what to do during their Fiji escape.
The resort also organises a complete smorgasbord of cultural experiences and events to showcase the island nation’s rich tapestry of heritage and history. There’s the nightly fire-lighting ceremony, the South Pacific Fire Dancing show and the Tribal Drumming Show – all regular features of the resort. Guests are also serenaded by performances by acoustic duos and trios, while South Pacific dance groups will send your feet thumping in symphony. Of course, the live bands and the DJ are always regular fixtures at the InterContinental Fiji. And while you’re in Fiji, why not learn a little Fijian?
Watersports @ InterContinental Fiji
There’s just so much to see, do and experience within the resort’s grounds – and we haven’t even touched the multitude of tours and escapes in the mainland! For the adventurer in Fiji, we’ll recommend checking out the two watersports operators based on-site at the resort.
From learning how to dive to paragliding sessions, it’s all there for the asking. Guests can also indulge in glass-bottom boat rides, snorkel safaris, wakeboarding, waterskiing, knee-boarding, tube riding, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, sport-fishing, surfing and of course surfing lessons. (While at it, why don’t you check out some of the best snorkelling spots in Fiji?)
InterContinental Fiji ‘Golf’ Resort & Spa
The resort’s iconic 18-hole Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course is a massive draw for travellers who want to practice their putting skills on their holiday. Recently renovated under the guidance of ace golfer Vijay Singh, the par-72 course is a rare blend of world-class infrastructure and fantastic landscapes. It overlooks the magnificent Natadola bay, rolling plains and beachfront-scapes – what a way to spend a day practicing your swing!
The resort’s golf course also offers lessons and a proper golf clinic under the stewardship of a PGA professional, along with a bar and a restaurant.
A memorable holiday for kids!
The InterContinental Fiji leaves no stone unturned when it comes to families and kids. Besides interconnecting rooms and suites, it has a first-rate Planet Trekkers kids’ club, a nanny service, a Planet Trekkers app for fun and education, a dedicated kids’ menu and a separate ensemble of activities and experiences for teens. Parents can leave the children safe and entertained for hours on end – go grab that spa afternoon! Or better still, let us organise a sunset cruise in the Mamanucas for you.
Dining @ InterContinental Fiji
The resort pampers its guests with a choice of four specialty restaurants and two bars, besides special dining occasions. The Navo Restaurant is the resort’s formal haunt, it specialises in seafood and an excellent cellar of fine wines from all over the world. The kitchen is walled with glass, so patrons can look at the how their orders turn from meat and ingredients to haute cuisine.
Set against views of Fiji’s sugarcane train line, Sanasana Restaurant offers piping-hot buffet breakfast, à la carte lunches and themed buffet dinners. Then, the Toba Bar & Grill is set in the very heart of the resort, offering wood-fired pizzas and burgers, along with a range of cocktails and drinks. For guests who want a view of the Natadola beach with their drinks, we recommend the Kama Lounge. The nightly torch-lighting ceremony happens here and it’s a sight every time. Also, the lounge specialises in international and locally-inspired cocktails and snacks, so no one’s leaving hungry or sober!
The golf course has its own restaurant and bar, with great views of the course, mountain ranges, ocean and the reefs. After a few hours of golf, there’s nothing like tucking into a hearty meal and a well-deserved drink.
Romantic dining occasions for couples in Fiji
What would a Fiji holiday be without a private romantic dinner? The InterContinental Fiji shines head and shoulders above the rest in this aspect. Couples and honeymooners can opt for a romantic poolside dinner under the stars, overlooking the Natadola Bay. Then, to amp up the romance factor few notches further, guests can book a private dinner in a cabana facing the ocean. With a dedicated server, a curated menu of fine wines and fresh seafood, along with scintillating views of Natadola, it is romance dialled to 11! Of course, weddings at the Intercontinental Fiji are specially epic – with the beach and the lagoon, everything’s picture-perfect!
