Accommodation in Nadi, Fiji
Nadi (pronounced Nandi) has a population of around 43,000 and is the tourism hub for travellers to Fiji. Located on the western side of the main island of Viti Levu, Nadi is constantly on the go and never seems to sleep with its jam-packed streets, hot climate and friendly local people.
The Main Street in Nadi is the commercial centre of the town and is brimming with all types of different shops. The competition to get you to buy something is fierce with many street touts offering you all sorts of things at cut rate prices. Combine this with the shop entrance loudspeakers playing the latest Hindi or Fijian music and you have a fantastic cacophony of sound, sight and colour.
Nadi doesn't have fabulous white sand beaches (for that you have to go to the Mamanuca or Yasawa Islands). What it does have is the largest range of accommodation in Fiji including hotels, motels, backpackers and hostels. There are also plenty of restaurants with a complete range of local and international culinary delights available in Nadi town itself or in the satellite towns of Martintar or Namaka.
Nadi also has some great nightclubs, an 18-hole golf course near the Nadi Airport and is the centre for Hinduism and Islam in Fiji, boasting the beautiful Sri Siva Subramaniya temple. The Nadi market is defintely worth a visit with cheap locally made handicrafts and other assorted items available.
