The new Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay on the Western Coast of Viti Levu and just a 45-minute drive from Nadi International Airport, offers stunning overwater bures that are unique to Fiji’s main island.

The overwater bures stretch across an expansive lagoon fringed with white-sand beaches

Water views are a highlight of this new 250-room resort. The overwater bures offer guests direct access to the lagoon and the resort’s other accommodation options – Deluxe Rooms, Duplex Lagoon Bures and Oceanfront Bures - feature a balcony or terrace with extensive views of either the pool, lagoon or ocean. Not a garden view room in sight!

Great care has been taken with the design of the resort to ensure it blends seamlessly into the natural surroundings of Momi Bay while maximising the expansive views and ensuring that each room offers complete luxury and privacy.

Soak up the sun at one of three swimming pools, relax at the swim-up bar and enjoy a signature cocktail at the Lagoon Lounge. Rejuvenate with a treatment at Quan Spa or enjoy the resort’s extensive waterbased activities. The Turtles Kids’ Club will keep younger guests entertained.

Dining is exciting, with three intriguing destination restaurants and bars, a café-style eatery and a bakery to choose from. Options include Fish Bar, a refined dining experience that also boasts breathtaking sunset views; Goji Kitchen & Bar with a menu of authentic local favourites, and Lagoon House & Bar for those looking for a more casual or relaxed setting offering delicious Italian and Mediterranean fare.
