Closest Airport Nadi Getting There Fly into Nadi on Fiji Airways from the U.S. and book Economy Plus (not Economy Lite) to avoid $300 fjd RT per bag checked bag fee and get reserved seat selection. Airline may email you an offer to block 2 seats next to you for additional $200 each way the day or 2 before departure (cheaper than upgrade to business class) in a program called My Bubble. Use the emailed link to book return My Bubble.
Beware of booking airline tickets through an agency online which may NOT offer Economy Plus.

Hotel can arrange RT ground transportation by private taxi for $500 fjd. This is best way to do it. Add 3.5% for credit card. Will stop for coffee at The Coffee Hub in the town of Ba for superb coffee and toilet break and can also stop at Sop and Save grocery store in town of Tavua on way to resort on request. Good to pick up drinks, snacks and maybe supplies for light lunch. No super markets just a small market with minimal produce and no bakery.
As alternative you can try booking ground transportation on travel agency but it is confusing because poor communication with vendor and must be booked as 2 one way trips, not a round trip. Have to search Rakiraki tours to find the return and online interface was buggy showing the only pickup option was midnight. Price was about the same as booking through the hotel. You can also book through local Fiji agencies but requires a phone call because no online booking option. Or you can negotiate a fare with taxi at the airport. One way travel time about 2.5 hours plus time for stops.
