Malolo Island Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The bures are fresh and stylish, the staff are accommodating and everything is so kid friendly. We had my hens and our wedding here and all aspects of the trip exceeded expectations. The only downside is there are one or two bures (around 39/40/41) that are very tucked away so there is no view and the rooms are kind of on top of each other so perhaps these could be offered at a lower price than the same bures that are less squished away behind other bures. However I would not regret a holiday at Malolo in any room! Best holiday I've ever had. The island is so beautiful and we will be back many times.

My young family have just spent a wonderful week at Malolo. The welcome is every bit as friendly as everyone else says. It's a picture perfect tropical island with swaying palms and crystal clear water. The accommodation is first class - clean, comfortable and with a view to die for. Beds are super comfy and have good quality linen. Food is expensive (we were on the Meal Plan which included Kids Eat Free) and the alcohol prohibitively so. We stocked up at the bottle shop in Denerau and this was a big win so we could enjoy a bottle of wine in the evening by the water's edge. Activities are also off-the-chart expensive, so we didn't do any, which is a shame. Jet skiing is F$650 for a 90 minute excursion. Food is pretty good on the whole, service is friendly rather than professional (to match the prices, amuse bouches and sorbet palate-cleansers in the fine dining restaurant). In short, it's the most beautiful and friendliest place I've ever been, only slightly marred by the overly aggressive pricing of wine and water sports (kayaks and Hobie Cats are free). I loved it but I won't be back. There's just not quite enough variety to entice me to pay the premium.

We have just returned from only 3 nights on this amazing island and already planning our next stay and we will be staying longer! From the second you arrive until the moment you leave you get the full Fijian experience and feel like family as soon as you step onto the jetty. Everyone makes an effort to get to know your name and family. Welcome drinks, shell necklaces and a song on arrival immediately welcome you into paradise! The bures are gorgeous and we were right on the beach which was amazing! The island itself is of course stunning! Although they are little we had enough room for our baby cot and 4 year old to comfortably sleep. The rooms are kept very nice, clean and fresh. The staff are amazing and our 1 year old and 4 year old had a wonderful time in kids club with their nannies who were wonderful! The only problem was our 4 year old felt so much at home she kept wandering off on her own around the resort! The food was lovely and the shows and live singing every night was magical! The grounds were just stunning and you can tell the staff here (most who are from the local island villages) are very happy. The resort is small and quiet and because of this we got to meet and chat to some other lovely guests too. I had two treatments at the spa and it was amazing, open air rooms looking out into the rainforest! This place is perfect for all but especially for families and for those who like peace and quiet and maybe are a little more introverted. Vinaka Vakalevu malolo!

Greeted with Fijian songs and chorus 'bula', cold face cloth, welcome drink and provided a thorough property orientation, we were off to a good start. We booked the deluxe oceanfront bure and while a longer beach walk and furthest accommodation from the bar, activities, restaurants and pools, worth it for the serenity and proximity to the beach. This bure was spacious and clean. A welcome retreat. There are three restaurants to choose from for dinner - one with AC is the one we frequented. The food was excellent in our inclusive package. The staff are a delight. The snorkeling isn't too bad either and we even did a couple of shore dives (we had our own gear and only needed to rent tanks and weights). The on-site spa was being renovated, so had been relocated to rooms just behind our bure. The massage and foot treatments were relaxing. Malolo is family friendly. During our stay we noticed either families with young children or couples. There is an on-site day-care facility, daily kid activities, and private baby sitting available. The boat ride from Nadi is picturesque. The sunset at dinner was glorious.

Our second visit to paradise in 9 months. It was great the first time and better the second. Peaceful, serene, outstanding bures, great staff. With only 45 bures, no crowds, plenty of beach, great pools and a kids club to die for. The staff are superb, all friendly helpful and prepared to have fun. The food was fantastic, Treetops was as good a restaurant as you will find. The kids loved the Terrace and Beach Bar and they were well catered for. I'm reluctant to say a must stay as it will simply make it harder to book our next stay.

Stay at Malolo it's a must stunning place so good for families other side caters for couples only amazing😍clean wonderful food place is spotless burrs are so beautiful and water blue clear great for snorkelling Fijians are so great with the kids kids club is wonderful they love the kids and take care of them very well all people on that island are so caring happy make your day pools are clean and gorgeous restaurants amazing the whole island is so new looking and clean go a must for families you will be treated like kings😍🍹🏝

From the moment we arrived and they said "Welcome Home" we felt loved, cared for and pampered! This place is heaven, the staff are beyond exceptional, accomodation was picture perfect and best of all my kids who never go to kids club begged to go each night! The food was AMAZING! My daughter cried the whole boat trip home to the mainland when we left and I must admit I shed a tear too. We cannot wait to go back to our Malolo home 💖🌴

This resort was absolute paradise. From the time we arrived by boat to the jetty and were greeted by staff singing just for us until we left (to the same lovely songs), everything was absolutely perfect. The bungalows sit near the beach with amazing views. The interior is modern, spacious, and clean. Our 10-year-old son was with us and the daybed was perfect for him. Two kids could easily fit onto the two daybeds. There is twice daily housekeeping service, so each night when we returned from dinner, the daybed would be setup for our son, then they would convert it back to a couch in the morning. The staff is amazing. Everyone is absolutely warm and wonderful - it feels like a family. They are eager to help with whatever you need. The kids club is free and wonderful, with a variety of activities for all ages. Snorkeling off of the beach is very good, and the twice daily snorkel trips go to incredible places. We never had a bad meal, and the food is fairly reasonable considering that you don't really have any option other than to eat there. They have 3 restaurants, although we mostly ate at the beach bar since we prefer the casual vibe and the views of the ocean are amazing there. The in-house chef makes incredible food with a range of options. There are musicians at every lunch and dinner, which we really loved, plus special singing on Saturday and Sundays. You can choose to either relax - this place is the ultimate in relaxation - or do one of the many daily activities, many of which are free or inexpensive. My son got one-on-one scuba lessons in the pool followed by his first dive off of the jetty there, which was the highlight of his trip. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back. I can't recommend this wonderful place highly enough. Thank you, Malolo, we love you!!

Beautiful location and very nice staff. Loved our stay here, from the moment we stepped off the boat onto that beautiful pier. If it had surf out the front and some more shelter from the trade winds, it would be a 10 out of 10. Having said that, the wind wasn't too bad and made the Hobie Cats a blast!! :)

Been meaning to do this review for a while. My husband, two girls aged 11 and 10 and I absolutely love Fiji and have enjoyed two previous trips to Blue Lagoon Resort in the Yasawas and Musket Cove on the neighbouring Malolo Lai Lai Island. I had heard good things about Malolo and it didn't disappoint. From the well-appointed bure where we sat on the verandah on many occasions and took in the glorious view, to the fantastic snorkelling just off shore and near the rocky island, and the fabulous food and friendly staff, we just felt it had everything we were looking for in a holiday. It was small enough to feel super relaxing and intimate but still had all the facilities and activities to keep you busy if that's what you were looking for. We kayaked numerous times, even once to Castaway Island resort (not as good as Malolo IMHO). We walked over to Naivaka beach where we had a swim on the deserted beach and took in the spectacular views on the way over and back. All in all, I could not fault it and would love to return one day. Although we stretched ourselves a little bit financially for this resort, it was worth it. Vinaka vakalevu to all of the staff at Malolo. Sota tale (hopefully!)
