Fiji Orchid Hotel

The Fiji Orchid was built back in the 1960's by Emmy Award-winning actor Raymond Burr, of "Perry Mason" and "Ironside" fame, as a luxury stopover for him and his guests, on their way to his remote private island of Naitauba, where he had his main luxury property, cattle ranch and coconut plantation.


Burr had a long love affair with Fiji, and in his time here, created the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, now one of Fiji's most popular tourist attractions containing 2,000 types of orchids in over 20 hectares of tropical landscaped gardens.  The Fiji Orchid property was expanded to become South Seas Orchids, the orchid nursery for the Gardens, and hundreds of orchids and other aromatic plants still flourish in the hotel's gardens today.


The new owners have completely refurbished the main lodge and 6 guest bures in the gardens, but still kept that secluded, tropical and luxurious feel.


The main Lodge has been converted into a gourmet restaurant, a spacious lounge with bar, and includes two day rooms, if you want somewhere to relax and freshen up for just a few hours.  They have an ensuite shower room, private patio and a King size bed.  The day rooms are available from 6am - 1pm or 2pm - 10pm.


In amongst the 5 acres of tropical gardens, full of hundreds of different fragrant orchids, there are 6 guest villas, with a calming but modern ambiance.  Each villa has a unique bure-shaped tent-like roof, giving a very airy feel, with air conditioning, a King size bed, ensuite bathroom with shower and complimentary toiletries, comfortable easy chairs, tea and coffee making facilities, and double opening French doors to a large private verandah and terrace overlooking the gorgeous gardens.


In a secluded area of the gardens, there is a pool to cool off and also, a massage bure, which offers many Fijian inspired treatments to relax.  The property is only a short stroll from Saweni Beach, one of Viti Levu's best beaches.


The Fiji Orchid has been designed as a luxurious base to break your journey, either on arrival before travelling on to one of Fiji's outer islands, or at the end of your trip, before your flight home.  However, although the property is promoted as a luxury 'Airport' Hotel, being only 15 minutes from Nadi Airport, it would also be a lovely place to stay for a few days to see more of Viti Levu, at the beginning or the end of your tropical island escape.
