OUR Thoughts on Tropica Island Resort, Toba O Lakalaka Bay, Malolo Island, Mamanuca Islands, Fiji
Tropica Island Resort has risen from the site of a former resort which was not up to the standard we demand for our clientele, so we have been delighted to note the many recent improvements which have been accomplished by the new management team and now whole-heartedly endorse the new product. We are impressed with the up-grade of the existing Beachfront Bures which you would hardly recognise as being the original buildings. Not only have they all been completely modernised and refreshed, each one now sports a terrific private walled outdoor courtyard attached to the bathroom and this courtyard is home to a wonderfully romantic natural rock shower. These courtyard showers are a great addition. 

Tropica continues to upgrade their facilities and the improved Beachfront Bures have been so popular with guests, the resort owners decided to improve them further (some now have a private horizon-edge plunge pool) as well as completely taking out the original Hotel Room complex with its 14 studio rooms and turning these into 7 Sanctuary Pool Suites - each with a personal plunge pool. To achieve this while not inconveniencing guests, the whole resort was closed for the first half of 2017 while the works were in progress. Now the "new" Tropica is presented in all its glory and guests are thoroughly enjoying the new experience.

Self-rated a good 4-Star standard and catering to adults only (minimum age for guests is 16 years), the whole place feels new and loved.  For those seeking to relax and reconnect without the distraction of children and the higher prices normally charged for 5-Star adults-only resorts, Tropica is very worthy of consideration. The new beachfront infinity-edge swimming pool is a very pleasant place to start the relaxation process, both restaurants serve excellent food and a highlight of every evening is the Fijian entertainment after dinner, when guests are welcome to join in if the mood takes you. A good-value meal plan is available and this can be organised either at the time you make your booking or once you arrive at the Resort. 

Tropica Resort looks after Honeymooners very well and they also offer Wedding Packages for those seeking a superb setting for a wedding. They have a lovely Day Spa too which offers a full range of treatments. The beach out front of the Bures and Suites continues on past the pier another 200/300 metres along to Sunset Point – a great spot for sunset cocktails and canapes and from which there are extensive views out over the Mamanuca Islands and the mainland mountains of Viti Levu.

Meals are a feature of a stay at Tropica and the meal offering has been enhanced with the introduction of a Tapas and Antipasto Menu at The Sunset Beach Bar. This is proving a big hit with guests.

There is a wide range of services and activities included in the room cost:
Daily full breakfast included in all rates
● Free Butler Service with every accommodation type
● Free hour of canapes and drinks daily
● Free 15-minute foot soak
Free Wifi throughout the resort

Tropica Island Resort is an idyllic location for a wedding and we have full details of the Wedding Packages available. However, Tropica Island Resort (rightly) pride themselves in delivering personalised weddings – their managers are really romantics at heart so will go that extra distance to ensure your wedding at Tropica is everything you could dream of. For a memorable wedding, a charter of the entire resort can be arranged for up to 50 guests. When chartering the entire resort, children may be included in the overall total of 50 people.

For those seeking a beautiful island setting, great food, plenty of optional activities and high quality bures and suites in an adults-only environment, Tropica Island Resort may just be the right fit! 

Finally, there is nothing quite like a romantic private degustation dinner for 2 at sunset out on the end of their pier under the pier-bure roof, surrounded by the sea and the flaming sky – don’t miss the opportunity!

What Tropica Island Resort Fiji Say About Themselves:
“Established May 2013. A major refurbishment completed June 2017.

Looking out over a white sandy beach lined with palm trees, Tropica Island Resort is nestled in Na  Toba O Lakalaka a private sheltered bay on the beautiful island of Malolo. Offering elegant accommodation with pristine waters and lush tropical gardens, this is a resort centred around two key themes: Celebration and Rejuvenation. An ideal destination for a celebration, a romantic honeymoon or wedding, or for those just looking to reconnect.

Slip into total relaxation as you soak up the sun in the fresh water horizon pool overlooking the azure waters of the pacific, or sip on a cocktail as you lounge in the sunset bar watching magical sunsets. Although located only a short distance from Nadi International airport, you will feel a million miles away as the stress and worries of everyday life disappear.”
