Distances From Suva & Nadi:
Uprising beach resort is in a tranquil location on the gorgeous Fijian island of Viti Levu.
Below you can see a table of distances and the approximate times that it takes to drive to the Uprising Resort, Fiji from Viti Levu’s major cities.
|Suva to Uprising, Pacific Harbour||50 km||45-60 mins|
|Nadi to Uprising, Pacific Harbour||140 km||2-2.5 hours|
Keep in mind that travel times are approximate. If you hire a car and drive yourself then you may be able to get there a little faster (if you don’t stop along the way to enjoy some of the beautiful scenery!). In public transport and shuttles there may be additional stops along the way, which means that the trip may be slightly longer than you originally thought.
NOTE: Not all of Fiji’s roads are well maintained. Around the south of the Viti Levu island the road from Nadi to Suva (including Pacific Harbour) is quite good in most places. Some spots, however, are quite bumpy and so you may find the trip somewhat tiring.
Remember to have a bottle of water with you for the trip and enjoy the stunning scenery and landscapes along the way. If you do this then the time will pass quickly and you will soon be at your destination and ready to enjoy an amazing Fijian holiday!
