After enjoying eight great nights at the Amunuca Resort on Tokoriki Island, we took the South Sea Cruises ferry back to the main island of Viti Levu.

We had to wait several days for our next flight from the Nadi (NAN) airport to Auckland (AKL), New Zealand.

January must be one of the low seasons in Fiji, because I was able to book a standard room at the Novotel Namaka Hill hotel for just $48.90 per night.

When we checked in, the woman at the front desk was nice enough to upgrade us to a "Deluxe" room with more space and vaulted ceilings.

Our room had a nice view of the Novotel Hotel golf course, a patio, a comfortable couch, a desk, LCD TV, a king size bed, a mini fridge, and wired internet access (surcharge).

The Novotel Namaka Hill hotel has 127 rooms, expansive gardens, an onsite restaurant, the Talei Bar, WiFi internet access in the public areas (extra surcharge per hour and data amount), a fitness center, an outdoor unheated pool, massage services, an outdoor tennis court, several gift & snack shops, room service, a 9 hole golf course, and 24 hour security staff.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Novotel Namaka Hill hotel especially at the bargain price of about $50 per night. It's a bargain even at the normal rates of $75 and up. The room was comfortable and all of the staff were very pleasant.

Another reason that I chose the Novotel was that it's on AT&T's Premiere WiFi internet service's list of participating hotels. Unfortunately, there was no way for an ATT WiFi customer to log in to the hotel's wired or wireless internet service. I called AT&T WiFi tech support using Skype while paying per minute and megabyte for the hotel's internet connection only to have them tell me that "there should be a way to log in". I had the same problem with the AT&T WiFi service at a Mercure Hotel in Auckland and an Ibis Novotel hotel in Ellerslie (South Auckland).

Since we were staying at the Novotel for four nights, we bought some food and snacks at the local grocery store so as to not be totally dependent on the hotel for our meals. We also bought a small bottle of laundry detergent to wash some of our clothes in the bath tub in preparation for departing to New Zealand. Budget travel isn't always glamorous.
