Navigating around Fiji’s capital might not be fun and a bit unusual considering that it’s located on the less touristy side of Fiji. But if you do find yourself in Suva on a business trip, here are 10 of the capital’s best accommodations, recommended according to their star rating, distance from and within the city, affordability and privacy.

Grand Pacific Hotel (GPH)

One of the oldest buildings in the Pacific, the Grand Pacific Hotel is immersed in so much history. Officially opening in 1914, the GPH sits by the original line of the capital’s seawall, opposite Albert Park and adjacent to another prominent hotel, the Holiday Inn. The 4-star hotel maintains a colonial appeal of high ceilings and beautiful large French doors, with large spacious rooms ranging from $400- $500. The hotel is a historical landmark and is about a 10-minute walk from Suva’s business district containing free parking, wifi and breakfast.

On the corner of Mitchell street and Gorrie street sits one of the capital’s finest 3-star motels, the Suva Motor Inn. The motel brags well-structured 3 story buildings, and a pool complete with a slide. Its location might be its only disadvantage since it’s hidden behind some of Suva’s more prominent buildings, and it is about 300 metres south of the government buildings. Rooms range from $100 to $200; and are clean, spacious and quiet, with the staff being remarkably friendly and helpful as well.

Suva Peninsula Hotel
