Our Resort Report

Temporary Resort Closure due to COVID-19
The Resort is temporarily closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic and is
scheduled to reopen by 01 April 2021

OUR Thoughts on Malolo Island - Fiji, Malolo Island, Mamanuca Islands, Fiji
This is a good quality Resort with some very special features.  Malolo Island Fiji is built around a beach point on Malolo Island in Fiji’s Mamanuca Group and it’s easily accessible from the mainland by fast ferry, seaplane or speedboat.

The accommodation is all bure-style and each bure is presented in modern, light colours giving the feeling of a tropical colonial cottage. The white/cream colours throughout which carry out to the spacious veranda, are highlighted by muted modern soft furnishings. There are no dark corners anywhere in these delightful Bures.

Malolo Island Fiji is very popular with families and there are always a lot of families staying especially during the Australasian School Holidays.  However, the way the resort handles families and the special facilities they provide for children means that singles and couples also thoroughly enjoy stays at Malolo even when there are lots of kids around.  Malolo Island Fiji specially appeals for couples and seniors who enjoy having children around and about during the day, but prefer the option of a more sedate breakfast and dinner in a slightly more formal atmosphere at Treetops Restaurant. Honeymooners too, love the atmosphere of the island and it’s also a superb spot for an Island Wedding. For a resort with 46 bures, there are wide open spaces and a long stretch of beach, so guests never feel crowded. Kids are superbly looked after in the complimentary Kids’ Club and have special dining arrangements.  The Kids’ Club is no “second thought” arrangement at Malolo, it’s a purpose-built Club with several rooms offering different experiences for kids as well as a beach-inspired outdoor playground.  As well as the Treetops adults-only restaurant, there are separate family and adults’ swimming pools, as well as a special Teens Lounge for guests aged 13 to 18 years.

For a resort of this size, we are impressed by the number and variety of restaurants they offer.  The Beach Bar located at the water's edge offering spectacular sunset views in the evenings is the beach focal-points for guests.  Open for lunch and dinner (closed Saturday evening), The Beach Bar offers casual beachside dining for lunch and dinner, an all-day snack menu and evening cocktail hour with reduced price drinks.  

With views over the gardens and pools from its position on a gentle rise behind the Beach Bar, the Terrace Restaurant is the resort's specialist buffet restaurant and serves buffet breakfast, has an a la carte lunch menu and offers buffet dinners. The all-day dining menu offers an extensive range of modern cuisine with a tropical flare. (A kids’ menu is also available for children aged 12 years and under).

Above Terrace Restaurant, “Treetops” overlooks the whole resort. Treetops is open for adults-only breakfast and a la carte dinners in a slightly more formal setting and is reserved for adults and younger guests aged 13 years and over. Breakfast is served 7:00am to 10:00am and dinner is available 6:30pm to 10:00pm daily excluding Saturday. 

On Saturday nights the whole resort comes together for a celebration of Fiji culture.  Beginning with a cocktail hour where guests get to meet each other and the Resort Management and while everyone is mingling a short Meke is performed by the local Cubi Island Dance Troup, followed by a sumptuous Fijian feast cooked in a Fiji Lovo oven.  An extensive cold buffet influenced by local markets and traditional Fijian delicacies like kokoda, vudi vakalolo and chilli mud crab followed by fresh seasonal fruits and other tempting tropical deserts compliments this feast.

Resort Meal Plans are available and can be pre-purchased though Our Specialists or left until you arrive at the resort. 

Kindly note that “Kids Eat Free” is only available when accompanying adults purchase the Resort Meal Plan.

There are 2 complimentary Wifi stations in the lounge/boutique.

Malolo offers a wide range of watersports options for guests to enjoy. Everyone receives complimentary use of all non-motorised water sports equipment, including 
● Catamarans
● Windsurfers
● Stand-up Paddle Boards
● Kayaks 
Snorkelling equipment.  

Malolo is a medium-sized island with a high hill in the centre so a very pleasant activity which can be undertaken at no additional cost is a tramp up to the Malolo Lookout for special views of Malolo Resort and Likuliku Resort on the other side of the island as well as extensive views of the whole Mamanuca Island region. 

Optional (paid) activities include SCUBA Dive, game fishing, island hopping trips etc.  We recommend you don’t miss the opportunity to take the optional trips on offer to deserted Honeymoon Island, the wonderful Malolo Sand Bar for great snorkelling and the organised Village Visits.

You don’t really need to leave the Resort at all to have a great holiday experience.  The Resort surrounds are beautiful and the whole Resort is constantly being maintained to a very high standard.  There is a long jetty out front (which is a good location for fish-spotting) and a moored pontoon off the beach to swim to.  The beach is natural with good sand.  Because of its natural state there is a smattering of coral stones on the sea floor, so it’s probably wise to throw some beach shoes in with your packing if you like to walk out into the sea. Malolo has an exceptional Beauty Spa (Leilani’s) which is located right in the middle of the Resort in a quiet spot close to the Bures.  Leilani’s comprises 3 separate buildings (2 of which are for couples) for spa treatments and massage, 

BYO Drinks.
We would also like mention the Malolo policy on bringing your own alcoholic drinks.  The resort is not licenced for BYO liquor but does allow guests to bring their Fiji Duty Free allowance to the resort which is 2.5ltrs of Spirits or 4.5ltrs of Wine. The duty-free allowance can only be consumed in the privacy of bures and is not allowed to be taken into the bars and restaurants or corkage/service charges will apply.

Malolo provides superior quality accommodation; very good dining choices, excellent guest facilities, super-friendly staff and well-organised options for both families and couples to all enjoy their holidays here without constantly tripping over each other.

Optional (charged) Activities   
● Scuba Diving
Island Hopping safaris & picnics
Banana Boat Rides
Village Tour
Sandbank Picnics
Dolphin Spotting

What Malolo Island - Fiji Say About Themselves
“Malolo Island – Fiji. An idyllic island paradise where you can escape the stress of modern living and relax amongst golden sandy beaches, abundant coral reefs, swaying coconut palms and azure seas. 

Malolo is an intimate, rustic resort. It's about a bure near the beach, surrounded by the world's friendliest people with a living and authentic culture. You will be served by the descendants of villagers who have lived there for thousands of years, offering true Fijian hospitality.  Perfect for families and couples alike, at Malolo, you can fill your day with a myriad of activities or simply unwind and do nothing at all. 

100% owned by a local Fijian family, Malolo is all about reconnecting with family and friends without the distractions of "mod-cons". Just the sounds of the coconut trees swaying and the ocean lapping the shore, under the bluest of skies by day and a blanket of stars by night. 

At Malolo you can fill your day with activities or simply unwind and do nothing at all. There are an array of activities and experiences on offer to keep even the most active of guests occupied. For the romantics at heart, we have some very special options perfect for those cherished moments such as, a romantic beachside dinner or perhaps just hanging about in one of the many double hammocks and soaking up the sensational views across the Pacific Ocean.  Or why not indulge in our beautiful rainforest Spa?

For the families, there is a free kids club for 4-12 year olds and plenty of water sports fun for everyone including hobie cats, kayaking, banana boat rides, windsurfing, coral viewing, dolphin spotting and more.

We believe, Malolo is the way the world should be.”

Your Accommodation Options
There are 46 modern Plantation-style accommodation units at Malolo Island – Fiji.  Apart from the 4 large, stand-alone Family Bures, all the accommodation is housed in duplex units (2 Bures to a building) which are strategically placed around the curve of the beach point on which the Resort is located and this not only gives privacy but also maximises the views from each individual bure veranda.  Approximately half of the bures are located immediately on the land-side of the beachfront path which winds its way along the beach frontage while the other Bures are located in a very pleasant area (which we like to call the “Village Green”) facing lawns just a few metres back from the beachfront path.  Every Bure, except for the 2 Island Bures located in the “Village Green” area has an ocean view from the veranda.

Every Bure features air-conditioning and fans.  Each has a high vaulted ceiling and modern, fresh décor with light-coloured ceramic tiles and a modern bathroom.  All Bures have tea/coffee facilities and a bar fridge. The spacious veranda on each Bure is a feature too with its comfortable lounging/sitting furniture and views of the ocean and the spectacular tropical sunsets.
