Our Resort Report

OUR thoughts on Plantation Island Resort, Malolo Lailai Island, Mamanuca Islands
From the moment you arrive at Plantation you can't help but notice two things; firstly, the amount of holiday activity going on around the beach, and secondly, the fact that everyone is having such a great time! The smiling staff members meet you at the jetty singing a welcome song before escorting you to the Reception lobby where part of the welcoming process is the showing of a 5-minute video which gives an excellent insight into all the facilities and special amenities available at the resort,.  .

There are several restaurants from which to choose.  The Ol’Copra Shed, Tavola Restaurant & Bar, The Kana Vale Snack Bar and the Black Coral Grill specialises in grilles meat and seafood along with their ever-popular hot-rock options.  Don’t overlook Plantation’s great little on-site mini-supermarket and the option of visiting the restaurant at Musket Cove Resort which is accessed after an easy walk around the end of the airstrip.

Weddings and Vow Renewals are another feature of the services available at Plantation Island Resort.  This is a great location for a wedding and a wide range of wedding packages are available from their classic, very well-priced “Romantic Lailai Wedding” through to their “Deluxe Inclusive Wedding Package” with all the trimmings. Our Specialists have full details.
