Our Resort Report

01 September 2020
Brand New Reception, Resort Boutique Shop, Alfresco Bar and Pool Area Now Open

OUR thoughts on Lomani Island Resort, Malolo Lailai Island, Mamanuca Islands, Fiji
Located around the point from Plantation Island Resort on a private, sheltered bay, Lomani feels a world apart from the busy family atmosphere of Plantation Island Resort which is only a 5-minute stroll away. Lomani is an adults-only resort where the minimum age of guests is 16 years. The 30 Suites and Bures are all in close proximity to the beach. The recently enlarged restaurant, does accept guests from the other resorts on the island (but only adults) and is well respected for serving excellent food, but, what really sets Lomani apart is the fact that with only 30 rooms, the wonderful Fijian staff quickly become friends with the guests and many a tear is shed on both sides when guests leave at the end of their holiday.

The perfect white sand beach outside Lomani is tidal which makes it wonderful for romantic sunset walks and private evening meals enjoyed with tables set up right in the shallow water.  When the tide is out and the beach is not so good for swimming, Lomani provides daily complimentary boat trips around the island to any one of several beautiful swimming and snorkelling spots.

Lomani rates itself 4 Star – in our opinion, it’s at the higher end of the 4-star rating. Guests appreciate the range of services included in the tariff:
Full American Breakfast daily
(they even do complimentary delivery for guests taking breakfast in bed)
Daily wash, dry and fold laundry service
A 15-minute foot massage per person
Complimentary wifi (2 devices)
There are many other delightful special touches at Lomani. Every arriving guest is personally welcomed by the staff singing traditional Fijian greetings and given a shell lei and a fresh green drinking coconut. Departing guests are farewelled with a song too.

All guests have complimentary use of kayaks, glass-bottomed kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, windsurfers, bicycles, snorkelling equipment, gym, chill-out lounge with big screen TV, pool table and showers, and the lovely 35 metre freshwater swimming pool and beautiful poolside cabanas.
You may well wonder what you would do with bicycles on an island, but Malolo Lailai is quite a size and as well as Lomani there are two other resorts on the island – Plantation Island Resort and Musket Cove Resort, so the bicycles thoughtfully provided for Lomani guests are a great way to get around the island and visit the other resorts and beaches if you wish.

NEW at Lomani - The Bubbles & Bean Bags Experience:
Effective immediately, Lomani Island Resort - Fiji has introduced a new feature - Bubbles & Bean Bags! An opportunity to spend an hour on the beach relaxing in bean bags while sharing a bottle of spartkling wine, with the services of a private seranader to set the scene.  Good one Lomani!

Guests also enjoy the recently upgraded Wifi service at Lomani Island Resort. - There’s more! 

The following complimentary tours and activities are included for everyone:
 Outer Reef snorkelling trip (daily)
● Dolphin Safari tour (once a week)
 Guided Village Tour (once a week)
 Guided Island Tour
 Handline fishing trip
 Coconut husking demonstration
 Kava ceremony
● Sulu-tying lesson
 Basket weaving lesson
 Manager’s Cocktail Party (on Wednesdays).

Of course the operation of all activities is subject to weather conditions, but that’s not usually a problem in Fiji!

Lomani have several excellent special offers. During the low season each year (01 November to 19 December, 10 January to 31 March, Lomani offers the facility for a “total resort buy-out” (or "Resort Charter") which is ideal for an incentive group, corporate group or even a wedding group to have the whole resort to themselves at a flat rate which includes accommodation and meals. During the period the resort is chartered children aged under 16 years may be included.  Our Travel Specialists have full details and costs of exclusive-use resort charters.

Wedding Coordinator Appointed
Lomani Island Resort now offers an on-island Wedding Coordinator.  Our Pacific’s established Wedding Specialist can now work with the resort’s Wedding Coordinator to ensure perfect travel and wedding arrangements for your perfect Lomani Island Wedding.

Finally, Lomani’s guests can now take advantage of the new surfing trips which are run in conjunction with Plantation Island Resort.  The world famous "Cloudbreak" is 20 minutes away by boat but there's a choice of seven popular breaks right on the island’s doorstep which are accessed by resort boat transfers.  The prices are reasonable starting at FJ$76 per person for 3-4 hours surfing at Wilkes, Swimming Pools, Restaurants, Namotu Left and Tavarua Right.  The world-famous Cloudbreak and Desperations for advanced surfers costs a little more at F$99 per person for 4 hour trip out by boat which gives around 3 hours surfing time.  Surfing can be prepaid through Our Specialists.  

What Lomani Island Resort Say About Themselves
"Lomani” is the Fijian word for love. Lomani Island Resort offers a tranquil and romantic atmosphere that is ideal for those seeking total relaxation. Lomani is an adults only boutique resort located in the beautiful Mamanuca Islands of Fiji. Hidden amongst the swaying palms and tropical gardens of MaloloLailai Island, Lomani fronts a 7km white sand beach and sheltered, pristine lagoon. With only 30 rooms in the resort you will feel well and truly like an honoured guest. All rooms have spectacular ocean views and are all within 30 metres of the beach front. The dedicated Fijian staff will cater to your every need, allowing you to unwind and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

Unwind with a relaxing massage, or find some private time to yourself exploring the 66 acre copra plantation and miles of uninhabited beaches. The Lomani Spa offers a range of treatments to indulge in using high quality Pure Fiji spa products. Picnic spots, hammocks and private beach vales are scattered around the resort, and a hamper can be arranged for those seeking seclusion. Private tables are set up by the beach for the ultimate romantic dining experience. Watch the sun dip into the ocean as you sip champagne with your feet in the sand."
