The CATHAY HOTEL is centrally located near the heart of Fijiís second largest city, Lautoka. The range of accommodation offered has made it popular with both local business people and international travellers on their way to/from the outer islands. Recommended in the Fiji Islands Handbook (David Stanley, Moon Publications, 2004), and in the Lonely Planet Fiji guide (Robyn Jones and Leonardo Pinheiro, Lonely Planet Publications, 2000) as a good place for meeting other budget travellers.
38 rooms with either ceiling fans or airconditioning, all with private bathrooms. Some rooms with refrigerators. Dormitory rooms with 3-4 beds, ceiling fans or air conditioning, and en suite bathrooms. "The dorms here are the best deal in the city...." (Fiji Islands Handbook, David Stanley, Moon Publications, 2004).
LOCAL RATES are available upon request for current and former Fiji residents, subject to availability. We also offer special discounts for medical students undertaking internships at Lautoka Hospital (conditions apply).

Assistance at Nadi Airport - IMPORTANT: Since the closure of the Fiji Visitors Bureau at Nadi Airport, there is no impartial, official or government-sponsored visitors office at the airport. Please be aware that the only "information" now available at Nadi Airport is from commercial travel agencies who receive commissions for any bookings they perform.
Airport Touts - There are a number of travel agents and touts operating from Nadi Airport who may attempt to dissuade you from booking the accommodation/tour of your choice and instead will try to sell you accommodation or tours that pay them high rates of commission. You should also be aware that if you prepay a "deposit" to these agents for several nights accommodation and you later change your mind, you are unlikely to receive a refund from the accommodation facility. It is therefore recommended that you exercise your right to insist upon the accommodation facility of your choice, and only book 1 or 2 nights with these agents unless you are absolutely sure about how long you wish to stay. If you experience any problems with airport agents or touts, send us a note and we will take the matter up on your behalf.
