History Construction of the Sheraton Fiji Resort began in the mid 1980s and the resort officially opened on 20 November, 1987. The resort became the second five—star resort on Denarau Island. In 1996, ITT Sheraton which owned Sheraton Fiji Resort was acquired by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc and Starwood has since owned the Sheraton brand and also manages the resort. Sheraton Fiji Resort has hosted many high profile visits to Fiji since it opened. The likes of British royalty, Hollywood stars, business moguls, famous musicians, sports personalities and authors have all experienced staying at the Sheraton Fiji Resort.

In May 2008, Sheraton Fiji Resort underwent an extensive six month, and US$22 million refurbishment that was managed by Herbert's Construction Limited. This all-encompassing refurbishment created a stunning new look for the resort resulting in significant upgrades to guest accommodations, restaurants and bars, as well as the introduction of new recreational facilities. The centerpiece of the resort is the 1,200m2 lagoon style swimming pool developed by Scape Design Associates. The revitalized guest accommodations, which were designed by Joseph Pang Design Consultants, reflect the essence of the Pacific style while emphasizing guest comfort. The restaurants interiors have been created by renowned restaurant designers Dreamtime Australia Design and include Feast—a vibrant new buffet restaurant featuring tantalizing dishes from around the world. Flying Fish, offering a superb choice of fresh seafood dishes with spectacular water views. Continuing its reputation as the best fine dining restaurant in Fiji, Ports O' Call returns to the resort with a stunning fresh look. Pantry offers all the convenience of a gourmet deli in a 'Grab & Go' style offering and Chime, the resorts new lounge bar is the perfect place to relax with a tropical cocktail.
