I booked in here for 4 nights whilst working in Lautoka. The check in process was warm & welcoming, the staff are delightful & the rooms modern & clean. I prefer the upstairs rooms as they are brighter & have a deck, but downstairs are probably easier to keep cool. The restaurant is good, with reasonable prices, as is the... More

Efficiently managed hotel and easily the only decent choice if visiting Lautoka or even worth diverting here if you are flying in or out of Fiji. Food is creative even if the chicken with One cashew nut somewhat misleading but don't be put off understand that the use of English is not always understood, besides they were happy for me... More

Staff are nice and accommodating. They provided me all the basic information about Lautoka. We hosted our compan welcome dinner at the sunset lawn and surprised that the Chef was at the buffet table assisting the guests. My birthday coincided with the Fiji trip. Hotel had a serenading group and sang "Happy Birthday". View from my room was absolutely stunning!

This place is a wee gem. Great staff, nice food. Value for money. The pool is lovely and sitting at the outdoor bar area watching the sun set tops it all off. Bed was very comfortable. We were in the older area which was obvious but that didn't detract.

I have been staying here regularly since 2004 - and in 2007 lived there for 6 months. It is by far the best accommodation for anyone doing business in Lautoka.

Stayed here twice in last 2 months. Staff are extremely friendly. Always willing to help and assist at anytime. Selena, Ana and Amelia are awesome in the Fins restaurant. Great place to stay close to the town walking distance. Only place to stay in Latouka.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Superb waterfront location with sensational sunsets…Welcome to the Tanoa Waterfront Hotel, Lautoka, Fiji - the preferred Fiji hotel accommodation for the business traveller, conference delegate and holiday maker. This is an excellent stopover point for connections to and from the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands. Lautoka is the second largest city of Fiji and is the second port of entry in Fiji, after Suva. Lying in the heart of Fiji’s sugar cane growing regions, it is known as the Sugar City. It houses the Lautoka Sugar Mill which is the city’s biggest employer by far. From its superb Lautoka waterfront location you can witness sensational sunsets whilst enjoying a refreshing drink or an early dinner in Fins Restaurant. At the Fins Restaurant,we offer a wide range of both local and international fare between 6.30am and 11.30pm. We have 72 well-appointed guest accommodation rooms, each with individually controlled air conditioning for your comfort, and equipped with all guest amenities to suit both the busy executive and discerning leisure traveler. The rooms open out on to their own balcony or self contained patio which engenders the feeling of a cool relaxing space – ideal on ‘sticky’ tropical days. ... more   less
