I’ve mentioned before that I love breakfast buffets… So you’ll be pleased to know that the one at Radisson Blu Resort, where I stayed for the duration of the South Pacific Food & Wine Festival, did not disappoint!

The festival schedule often didn’t start until 10am, hence with breakfast at my own leisure, I ended up spending over a healthy hour here every morning!

Not only did they have crispy bacon on the BBQ, but they had pikelets and waffles, an abundance of local fruits, a juice bar, all of your usual continental breakfast things, and even sparkling wine in the fridge!

Yes, sparking wine, just incase you fancied a sparkling breakfast!

So here are the waffles, in plain and chocolate, the pikelets, and some idli, which is a popular South-Indian steamed rice cake. This was amazing with the coconut chutney!

There’s also bircher muesli, cheeses, some smoked meats and various yoghurts

And all-you-can-drink bubbly and sparkling water!

Plus I absolutely loved the variety of fruits – there was pineapple, banana, guava, coconut, pawpaw and watermelon!

I sat in a different spot every day, alternating between the outdoor space, the indoor space, and an airconditioned room! The service is so delightful and this resort is SO kid-friendly, I was taken by surprise at how many young families were here each morning. Shouldn’t these kids be at school?!?

Anyway, I quickly learned that the peak period was around 9am so we tried our best to avoid eating around then!

It’s obvious that local Fijians don’t eat like this, but elaborate breakfast buffet affairs are such a treat for food-obsessed travelers like myself! My next Fiji Friday post sees me finally leaving resort life at Denarau Island as Fiji-based Australian chef, Lance Seeto, takes me on a tour of Nadi Municipal Market to see ‘real’ Fiji! Stay tuned 🙂

The Super Breakfast Buffet is priced at $39 FJD (approx $21 AUD).
