“Best family holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

The rooms were lovely, food was great, enough activities to do but also very easy to not do much at all, great coral and snorkelling from the beach just 10m from your doorstep.
I stayed for 7 days which was just long enough but I would like to return every year.

I can't praise Malolo island enough. We took a long shot and picked a hotel that looked fabulous online and affordable with a location that looked perfect for our wedding. Malolo's services right throughout the whole process was second to none. They were responsive and catered to my every need and want - Feb 2011

The Island resort itself was everything we wanted and more. The Bures were directly beach front with the most stunning views of the azure blue ocean. The rooms were modern, and obviously had been recently upgraded. The Beds were comfortable and the rooms themselves very quiet.

The Resort has 3 restaurant areas all serving top notch cuisine and drink that caters to the fussiest eater (my husband being one). Our wedding dinner consisted of the largest, freshest and extravagant buffet I have ever seen. All fresh seafood and freshly cooked steaks, chicken and fish. Curries, salads and a huge arrangement of desserts. This surpassed our expectations. We have 30 wedding guests and everyone raved about the food and service.

The service of the Malolo employee's was hands down the best I have had in Fiji to date. They were friendly, happy and couldn't do enough for us. They got right involved with our group and made us feel like home. None of us wanted to leave.

The pool bar was a great place to hang out and the cocktails are to die for.

If you are umming and ahhing between island resorts in Fiji..... do not hesitate choosing Malolo. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Loloma Room "Honeymooners" room. Very private and secluded down the end o...

We stayed in other parts of Fiji but we loved Malolo Island the best. We stayed with two young children and they were well catered for in the kids club, on the beach and in the evenings. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and really wanted to get to know guests. The only thing I wish we had done differently was to arrange a meal plan with the hotel as there is no where else to go on the island to eat. Can't wait to go back some day....

From the staff to the food a unique experience. Plus so many activities to do organized by the resort at affordable prices.....
Kids club is great! Great activities to do on the island and in the water!
Great place! Clean and very kids friendly.

Room Tip: Front Ocean View are the best, but anywhere on the resort is great!

This was my 4th trip to Fiji. I stayed at this resort with my husband and nearly 2yr old at the time last year end March/beg April 2012 (for originally 5 nights however turned out to be 7 due to inclement weather - the Manager of the resort looked after/compensated everybody very well). This reinforces the need for comprehensive travel insurance!

What can i say.....This resort really makes you feel like your away from the hustle and bustle. It is a smaller resort, with all accommodation as Bures, which was just lovely. Food was yummy, staff were very friendly and hospitable and went out of their way to ensure we were looked after well. Would have been nice to see a little bit more variety on the menu at the beach bar however it is what it is and was delicious.

We stayed in Bure 26, (adjoining bure 25). These were very close to the beach - sensational position. Rooms were all recently renovated and could pick no design flaws. Bed, couch and daybeds were all comfortable, slept like a log! The shower was slow to drain which just meant shorter showers (bearing in mind water conservation as well). The accommodation was fantastic, the variety and quality of the food was great, the staff were always very friendly and helpful. The ambience overall was superb for a holiday to unwind and relax. It was a shame we could not have stayed longer.

To staff on Malolo Island 26 March 2012 - 3 April 2012. We did send a letter however i'm not sure that you recieved it. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you kindly for your assistance during our stay on Malolo Island from 26 March to 2 April 2012.

Our holiday was sure one to remember, from seeing the Islands at their best in the first couple of days experiencing the sunny weather to when the two low pressure systems came through immediately one after the other 2nd being Cyclone Daphne.

We were also married at Malolo Island on Friday 30th March 2012. It was different to the sunny beachfront wedding we anticipated for due to the stormy weather, however was still wonderful! Who else could say that their boquet was freshly hand picked frangipanis by the staff climing trees then stems wrapped in alfoil.....Could you please pass on a special ‘Thank you’ to Marshniel Singh, Akanisi Susana who did an fantastic job of coordinating our wedding – through the dramatic turn of events, Executive Chef and his team who made a scrumptious reception dinner for 10 and wedding cake, the Celebrant who braved the rough seas to marry us on the day, all staff on Malolo Island who helped prepare to ensure that our wedding was an remarkable one and of course Senior Pastor Matia Daveta who made a special trip with his wife from Suva to sign our marriage certificate after the flooding before we left Fiji. It truly was a very memorable and happy occasion for us despite the weather conditions at the time, and the grief it had brought to most of the Malolo staff and their families who were affected on the mainland by the rain.

Our families were equally very impressed by the way you and your staff managed and prepared for the tropical Cyclone Daphne that was predicted to hit the Nadi, West Coast Fiji and Mamanuca Islands, having come from tropical Queensland we understand how difficult things can be. We greatly appreciated your hospitality to ensure that we all looked after, remained safe and well informed of the situation despite having to worry about your own safety/families.

We cannot speak highly enough of you and your staff and our experience holidaying at the Malolo Island Resort. We look forward to visiting again one day. Vinaka vaka levu!

This is my third time in Malolo Resort. My husband and I went there before we had kids and now we came back with our 3 children and I have to say it was such a joy and a pleasure to have been there. My kids loved it!!!!! My oldest one was 4, my middle one was 2, and my baby was 6 months old. The staff loves children and they have a great kids club where they have incorporated the Fijian culture with the activities that they have on a daily basis. The pool is designed in a way that not only do the kids have fun in it but they are safe. Have never seen a pool like this one. The staff was warm, kind, joyful, and very good with children. We were able to have great family time but also alone time. They definitely accommodate for everyone in a family. We met so many lovely people. They have a good variety of activities especially at the kids club. We do look forward to going there again. We were planning on making this resort a yearly visit for us. This is one place that I would love to create memories with my family.

Room Tip: Beachfront rooms are great.

Unfortunately this resort did not really impress us. We are well travelled in Fiji and unfortunately found this resort a bit too basic for our liking.

Firstly, we had requested 2 rooms next to each other some 11 months in advance with regular checks on this with our agent/wholesaler right up until our departure. One room for us and one for my step children. However, on arrival for our 5 day stay we were seperated. Not too far away but with all our requests still very annoying.

My husband is a coaching chef so food is always an issue for us and most places we choose to stay come up to the mark, but not Malolo.

This resort would probably be fine for those that have not had the luxury of staying at higher end places. We enjoyed Castaway, The Sofitel and the Intercontinental with children more and we have enjoyed Likuliku twice as a couple.
