Funky Fish s staff are really friendly, the place might look a bit pricey but it runs on generators ( i actually don't think the guy is doing any money out of it) which are really expensive. The island is not ideal for swimming but again all it takes is a small trip to the sanbars for a good deal... More

This is a great surf resort option in Fiji. Very friendly staff, enjoyed the food which was fresh and tasty, worth a walk up the hill to catch the fabulous view to the outer reef, and the staff are happy to organise a kava ceremony for you after dinner. You buy the kava at their reception area ($2 a bag),... More

If you're looking to surf, snorkel or just chill-out somewhere that doesn't cost a fortune then this ticks all the boxes. The accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable. There is a dorm, a couple of family two bed bungalows and about a dozen single bungalows with 2 single beds, small fridge and kettle. The staff are really friendly and... More

From our last year review things are still improved. Meals are better with every night buffet. A lot of fruit at breakfast. Fish and seafood are common in the night and well done even in a small and simple place as Funky is.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small and friendly island resort with something for everyone! Situated on the majestic Fiji island of Malolo in the heart of the Mamanuca group just 15 kms from Fiji international airport. Central to the best Fiji surf breaks! The resort offers dramatic sunsets, is close to Fiji's great surf breaks, and delivers a very special experience - swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear waters on the surrounding coral reefs...unforgettable! Funky Fish also provides schedule and off schedule after-hours high-speed boat transfers, so that guests can be on the island the same day. We operate our own fast affordable transfer service from Anchorage private jetty (sister property). Guests travelling on our services from Vuda, Port Denarau or Nadi Airport will be greeted with shell leis and personally accompanied by our own staff to meet our marine transfer service. We look forward to welcoming you to Funky Fish Beach Resort. ... more   less
