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.

    Best one in the surrounding. Special thanks to hostel world for good rates. It was during the cyclone, but the hotel people were helpful and service was provided at the best level even during extreme weather conditions. Thanks

    Awesome experience over the weekend with my families. We love everything about Smugglers Cove Beach Resort. We loved the hospitality, the smiling and ever helpful staff for their service. It’s it is really value for money and the location is just perfect. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Smugglers before the year ends.

    I stayed in a single private room, which was definitely worth it as it also comes with its own bathroom and mini fridge. Staff is friendly and they have a convenience store/souvenir shop next to reception. The beach isn’t beautiful, but it’s cleaner here than other parts. Not very party-esque and there isn’t really a common area except the restaurant tables outside.

    We stayed here for a night as we had a stopover in Fiji, so the location right beside the airport was perfect. The room was good value for money, however the air con was too cold which made it difficult to sleep.

    Very Good

    05 Jan 2020
    Good hostel to stay at before/after flights and island hopping. The standard is nothing compared to the islands but seems the best hostel in Nadi and close to airport. Restaurant is nice and has entertainment but slightly pricey. Dancing and fire show on a Sunday is good. Beach is ok. Wouldn’t recommend staying more than 2 nights as there’s nothing to do.

    Place is well equipped but my time here was during a cyclone, instead of trying to help in a time of need,the hostel decides to overcharge more than double the going rate as they know tourists are being evacuated from islands.Bathroom in room was not clean and flooded,this was the case for many complaining at reception. Service in the restaurant was atrocious,staff need trained.A nice set up hostel but I would like to see more than the staff rubbing there hands together for the wealthy tourists.

    We were to check in at 9 am We waited for 3 hours to get a room but were not given a room.After 3 hours, we were told to wait till 2 pm but they were not sure if they would give us our room at 2 pm. No staff and bad customer service. We didn’t stay at that hotel.
