The luxe Smugglers Cove Beach Resort is the ideal base for beach lovers – you'll find us right on Wailoaloa Beach in Fiji. Need to cool off? Jump in our outdoor pool – where we'll also give you a free scuba-diving or paddle-board lesson. When evening comes, our free nightly entertainment features the guitar-and-ukelele sounds of Tai and the Kavaholics, and Fijian and Polynesian hulas with fire-dance shows. To really relax, pop along to our on-site spa for a massage.


We'll pick you up from the airport and take you straight to our hostel in around 15 minutes. You can arrive any time, as our free transfer service runs 24 hours (there's a charge for airport drop-off). We're located in the well-known party area of Wailoaloa Beach – around a 15-minute drive from Port Denarau Marina. There, you can hang out in the shopping centre and bars, or take cruises – Fiji has 330 islands to explore. We're also a 10-minute drive from multicultural Nadi Town with its Chinese and Indian restaurants, and jewellery and clothes stores.

    Free airport pickup, ideal starting location for trips as majority of one day tours picks up up from Smugglers Cove for free. It’s directly on beach, however it’s “black” and not nice as the islands around. Do a tour! Food is pricy. Shop next to it as well. I stayed 3 nights in 34 bed dormitory. It was all good and quite, possible to go to bed early. Each bunk bed is separated and you have your own lamp. Mattress was comfortably. Booked via website and paid 15 Fiji $ p.n. Clean.

    The hostel was in a good location, right on the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was good and had a great view of the sunset. The only thing that disappointed me was that online it said there was nightly entertainment but I didn't see that either night I was there.

    Very Good

    Smugglers cove is good value for money. They had fire dancers and kava ceremonies while we were there that we enjoyed. The beach is fantastic, the out door area is amazing and the pool was never too full of people. Now for the downside, smugglers cove has the worst customer service i have ever experienced in fiji. The bathroom was not clean. The hot water took a really long time to turn on. Check in process needs work. And just a word of advice makesure when they get you a taxi it has a meter.

    large dorm was clean and well organized despite many beds. but the doors were unlocked at all times; anyone can walk in. Lack of kitchen was a problem for me. Restaurant food was mediocre and expensive. Cleaning staff was very nice and friendly. Front desk staff was pretty apathetic.

    You pay for what you get! If you’re just looking for cheap accommodation on your first or last night, this is the place for you. They have a shuttle to and from the airport (I wasn’t expecting that so that was a pleasant surprise). The showers were hot and there was acceptable food on site and in the vicinity. I wouldn’t recommend multiple nights though.

    I feel that Smuggler's Cove has a higher rating because very few people stay longer than one night. My two friends and I stayed for 6 nights and experienced incident after incident. We were in the 4-bed dorm and had cockroaches, a broken shower head, no hand towel, an unknown bandaid left on the floor, and our air conditioner leaked (but was fixed). The atmosphere is nothing to write home about and luggage room is unsecured. Staff and location are only positives of our stay. Very disappointing.
