Westin Denarau Island Resort & Spa
Surrounded by tropical gardens, this beachfront property is part of a resort complex that also includes the Sheraton Fiji Resort and Sheraton Denarau Villas. Guests have access to amenities at all three properties, but there’s plenty to keep them at the Westin, including an outdoor pool and a spa with beachfront bures (thatched-roof huts). The 273 guest rooms incorporate local design elements, such as palm wood and handmade crafts, and all have a private terrace overlooking the ocean or garden. The resort also has a Japanese restaurant and an open-air lounge, which hosts a nightly torch-lighting and fire dance ceremony.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
