The Yanuca Lagoon Wing rooms comfortably cater to two adults and two children and are the closest rooms to the main pool, beach and restaurants.

All rooms include buffet breakfast for two adults, and two children (11 years of age and under). Additional complimentary inclusions are access to the Little Chiefs club for kids 11 and under, use of non-motorised water sports equipment, pool facilities including towels, and much more.

Ocean Wing Rooms

Great location for families.

The Ocean Wing rooms offer options for two adults and three children and are tucked between the Yanuca and Reef Wing.

This area is close to activities for teenagers with the tennis courts just behind this wing.

The Reef Wing


The Reef Wing is reserved for adults only – with a number of benefits including a private reception, adults-only breakfast, exclusive use of the Reef Pool, complimentary green fees at the golf course.


Suitable for couples and families.

The Bures at Shangri La are fantastic.  For families the one and two bedroom Yanuca Lagoon Bures are perfect for those requiring extra space.

The large Reef Bures are located at the adult-only end of the resort. These classic Fijian style bures ensure more space, a little more privacy and a freestanding accommodation option at the resort.

Be Active at Shangri La

Great for guests for all ages.

There is so much to keep everyone happy at Shangri La – with the heart of the resort centred around the Yanuca Lagoon pool, beach and Lagoon.

Every water sport you can imagine is on offer as well as an inflatable water park that will not only keep the kids happy but many an adult too.

Float in the lagoon, make the most of the canoes and stand up paddles boards, snorkel right off the beach or play beach volleyball most afternoons.

There’s so much more to do

A central location to explore the local area.

The resort has three pools (one reserved for adults only), a Cultural Village, Marine Education Centre, three tennis courts, putt putt mini golf, games room, kids disco, gym and bikes.

Book a game fishing expedition or a jet ski safari to venture further afield.

If you choose to leave the resort – and there is no need – you can explore the nearby area too.

Chi Spa

A visit to the spa is a must!

Chi, the Spa is located in a very secluded area of the resort and if you’ve done it all and need a rest, check in here for a range of amazing treatments.

With six treatment bures and also a unique Dusk to Dawn treatment option the Spa is a must visit.

Multiple Dining Options

Eight incredible dining venues.

With eight dining options you will not be left bored with meal choices, or wondering what to eat at Shangri’ La.   Two kids (4-11) eat free daily from designated restaurants when dining with a paying adult, and adults can buy a half board, or full meal plan too.

Restaurants include the amazing Takali Terrace where you can pair different gin with your Asian meal, Beach Bar and Grill and Lagoon Terrace for relaxed all day dining overlooking the beautiful lagoon.   The Golden Cowrie restaurant offers a variety of Italian classics and welcomes children over 7 years of age for dinner – and is where adults can enjoy a child free breakfast.

After dinner retreat to the Black Marlin Bar – here you can listen to live music on selected nights and enjoy one of the many rums on offer – served in a bilo for true Fijian flavour

What our Fiji travel specialists love about Shangri La’s Fijian Resort

Guests return year after year.

The Shangri La Fijian Resort is an all-round success story for so many people.   With a beautiful white sandy beach, luscious green grass areas fronting all room types, many dining options, activities galore and the testament of many returning guests.  Shangri La is so easy to get to and caters so very well to families and couples alike.   The conversion of the Reef Wing to an adult’s exclusive zone has been a welcome addition.   Perfect for multi-generational family visits, with Grandparents being able to retreat to their own sanctuary as the kids and families keep on keeping on in the main resort. Shangri La is worth a visit, or revisit if you haven’t been for a while.   You will be impressed with the new fresh resort that still has its  Fijian heart and soul.
