Before and after Cyclone Evan at Wyndham Resort Denarau Island

Emma, daughter of Wyndham staffer Scott Campbell, shares her perspective of Tropical Cyclone Evan – which hit Denarau Island during their recent family holiday.

Bula,

It was hard to believe that the way in which WorldMark welcomed us into our long looked-forward-to holiday could be warmer than Fiji’s afternoon sun above casting a dry heat over the beautiful island of Denarau.

Although, as the friendly staff and a strumming ukulele greeted us into the foyer, alarming announcements on cyclone ‘Evan’ pinned to the notice board were also present. Continue reading

Our spirits weren’t dampened in Fiji!

Wyndham Fiji welcome drinks

Grandson Jack, grand daughter Georgia, eldest daughter Kylie and me

I have been an Owner since 2004. This was my 5th visit to Wyndham Resort Denarau Island, Fiji, the most beautiful paradise, and beautiful people.

My three adult children and partners, and two grandchildren joined me this time, which was really special. The first week was beautiful weather, but the second was rain, floods and passing cyclones. Continue reading

The best bit about Fiji

Denarau Island, Fiji: All I can say is that it was great, fun and relaxing.

There are activities for all ages ranging from massage to swimming, drinking, eating, playing and fishing.  Most of all, the doing nothing bit, just enjoying the whole thing.  Denarau was great, the locals were very honest, accommodating as well as very welcoming. Continue reading

‘Think up a caption’ to our Fiji experience!

Daikoku Japanese Teppanyaki Judy and I have been friends since teaching together in New Zealand in the 80′s. Now that Judy is working in Christchurch supporting families displaced by the earthquakes, she really needed a warm and sunny mid-winter break.

My husband and I are now living in Adelaide and have been Wyndham Owners since 2001. We have had many happy holidays at Denarau, Fiji, so it seemed easy for Judy and I to meet up there.

We had a wonderful relaxing catch-up and lots of laughs! The great thing about staying at Denarau is that you also have easy access to Nadi town. Continue reading

Getting into the Fijian mood…

Changing How We Holiday

I would like to tell our story as it started 9 years ago when we joined.

My husband and I went to Denarau for the 6th time last August. This time we were on our own as my 18 year old daughter stayed home.

It was so strange having our first holiday with no children to look after and it took a little while to get into the swing of things, that is basically doing nothing just relaxing and reading. My daughter was 9 years old the first time we went and we met a great group of friends and their kids each year.  Continue reading

We survived the Cyclone in Denarau!

WorldMark Denarau Island pool during stormJan 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

Survivor Fiji!

Enjoying FijiWe 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. Continue reading

Fiji – 1st Timers

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
