Jan and I, along with our granddaughter, Ebony, had started our Fijian holiday on Tuesday 27th March, 2012. When we moved into our luxurious ground-floor apartment at Wyndham Denarau it was sunny – just the way we like it.
After two days, however, the weather started to change, going quickly from bad to worse. By Friday the Tropical Depression was threatening to become a cyclone with very high winds and torrential rain. Continue reading →
We have just arrived back from our fourth visit to WorldMark Denarau, and what an experience we had on this trip.
For the first time we took some of the family with us, my son, daughter-in-law and almost 3 year old grand daughter. It was to be a break for them after buying and starting to renovate their first home. They were exhausted and needed a good holiday and I knew they would have a wonderful time in Fiji.

Our first afternoon in Fiji - Taylor, 16, & Zac, 11
I’d just like to share our holiday experiences from our recent trip to Denarau, Fiji with you.
This was my first trip to Fiji and the 1st international trip for the kids.
Upon arrival (4 hours before check-in), we were invited to wait down at the pool area where we were pleasantly surprised with complimentary free “ice cold” fresh fruit juices and cold fruit kebabs. Continue reading →
One of our most memorable vacations was to Fiji in 2009.
The staff was fantastic and very helpful in suggesting places to visit to make the most of our stay. There were many interesting activities happening at the resort, so we could choose to do as much or as little as we wanted. We loved dining at the restaurant and looked forward to the lighting of the lanterns around the pool and the group of villagers who came to serenade us at the end of the day. Continue reading →
The photo I took with my own underwater camera - it's going straight to the Pool Room!
Hello, my name’s Andrew and I’m a serial holidayer. I’ve been all over the world with my family; there’s five of us and we have paid a zillion dollars to do it. Whilst in Fiji in January, we stayed in a resort next to the Wyndham and paid a fortune to do it. A two bedroom place here has cost us a mint, but having said that, we are still having a great time.
We went along to the Wyndham presentation and once I actually worked out what we have paid over the last five years on holidays for accommodation, I realised what a great deal becoming a property owner would be. So we signed up and now are Owners. Continue reading →
Denarau Island, Fiji: The adventure starts with our elegant morning wedding and a relaxed champagne brunch reception. The heartfelt smiles of our guests are captured by our photographer. We float through the day and at dinner time we strike up conversation with people at another restaurant table. We start by asking about their day (secretly hoping they would ask about ours! Which they did…). Conversation and wine flows freely. Continue reading →
My beautiful wife, Rhonda, and I were married in Brisbane on Remembrance Day, and jetted off to see the sights of Fiji for our Honeymoon.
On our arrival at Wyndham Denarau Island, we were met by the most friendly, and very humble, staff. As we walked to our room directly overlooking the amazing swimming pool, we passed through some of the most perfectly manicured and maintained gardens. Our room was a delight, overlooking the pool and having the prime position for the most breath-taking sunset. Continue reading →
With my pulse racing, we finally landed in Nadi. We made it through customs and we entered the world of Fiji. Smiling Fijians every-where, the smell of flowers, dust and heat hit the senses and a new world evolved. We are on holidays, it makes your mind run wild with all the things that you can do.
Upon arrival at Wyndham Resort, we were greeted with the warm welcome that became a natural daily occurrence. Once checked in we were taken to our apartment, wow, this is fantastic, it had everything we wanted.
Finally unpacking and knowing that you don’t have to pack for another 10 days is fabulous. The first thing we did was get the bathers on and go for a swim. Continue reading →
We were ready to say goodbye to 2010 as it had been a nightmare for us.
We were due to leave on a cruise on 23 February 2010, however life dealt us a curve ball. Geoff suffered two strokes on the 19th of February, followed by two blood clots in his lungs five days later. After a very lucky escape, the next three months were spent with Geoff in full time rehabilitation, followed by a further 9 months of two days a week rehab visits to Shenton Park. Geoff’s new motto in life is he is looking at the shoots and not the roots and there are a lot of others far worse off than he is.
