Sydney Lodge Sydney Lodge Room

After disembarking the Grand Princess in Syndney we checked into the A by Adina for 5 nights. This lodge was right in the middle of Sydney only a few blocks from the Grand Princess. Very easy access to many restaurants, tours and water taxis to many different hiking areas. Five days was not enough but we did get to experience a bit of Sydney. Our images from our Sydney days can be found off the "Trip Report" tab at the top of this page.

Fiji Room Fiji Resort Pool Fiji Resort View After our five Sydney days we boarded the light rail which was just a block from our lodge. Access to the light rail was very easy with Apple-pay. We choice Fiji air because it stopped in Fiji, our next stop. We arrived after dark so stayed our first night on the main island at the Fiji Gateway Hotel. The Gateway Hotel was literally across the streeet, we walked. The next day we took a water taxi to the Matamanoa which was about an hour taxi ride. Most of the people on our taxi got off on a day-use island about 20mins from the big island. We continued on to our resort island and were NOT disappointed.
