As you’d expect, the capital has a decent variety of accommodation, although it’s the one place in Fiji you won’t find palm-fringed resorts, thanks to the lack of nearby beaches. The only time it’s difficult to find a room is at Christmas or during the Hibiscus Festival (usually the school holidays in Aug). Suva South and Central are the best options for most visitors, being close to the top restaurants and bars as well as the Fiji Museum. Suva North is distinctly seedier, with several hotels offering rooms by the hour. Heading out of the centre the suburbs offer a few more characterful options. Note that most of the budget motels and inns are quite shabby and serve the local clientele only. For long-term rentals, the classified pages of the Fiji Times or Fiji Sun, especially on Saturdays, are your best bet, with a good selection of houses, apartments and rooms. When enquiring, try and get a local to call as they are more likely to get a discount.
