First Landing Resort is set on the white sands of Nalamu Beach at Vuda Point facing across Nadi Bay towards the famous Mamanuca Islands, with some amazing sunsets.
The name First Landing is reported to be because prior to the 1800’s Fiji had almost no connection with the outside world, with the South Pacific just being discovered. In 1789 Captain William Bligh was set adrift in a lifeboat near Tahiti by his mutinous crew of the HMAS Bounty with Captain Bligh and his crew sailing between the two large islands of the Fiji group, Viti Levu (“Big Fiji”) and Vanua Levu (“Big Land”).
Upon entering Fiji waters their canoe, the Kaunitoni, hit a reef and floundered, and they landed on the beach where First Landing Resort is located.
First Landing Beach Resort & Villas is also pursuing the family market in preparation for its new villas that are currently under construction, with a new kids’ club with packages for families including two children under 16 stay free, free kids’ club for families, and children under 12 eat free and the resort has recently undergone a multimillion-dollar refurbishment bringing the public areas in line with the new villas and bringing the rating closer to four star.
