“Must go for honeymooners”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Lomani is a comforting place. The food and cocktails are so awesome. Staff do indeed treat you like royalty. The programs such as husking a coconut and snorkelling are worthwhile. Lomani is like one big family. Massages by Elenoa are amazing and I had quite a lot of them  Perfect place for a honeymoon.

Room Tip: keep air con on the whole time and enjoy the hard drive of movies

We stayed at Lomani Island Resort for 5 days and we absolutely loved it. From arrival, the rooms standards, the staff, activities, food & massage... everything was great!

The standout points were
1. the outdoor showers in the villas
2. the private beach access from our villa.
3. Free activities everyday - and the snorkling trips that we took - It was the most beautiful experience when we went snorkling. we saw thousands or fish, we also saw an octapus, shark, sea snakes etc...
4. The ala carte resturant was good - a good range of food with daily specials. I suggest getting all meals on board package - I had lobster twice in a row - and that's STILL included as the standard package
5. Staff were friendly and helpful

Room Tip: The individual Villas with outdoor shower were amazing. Ours were only 4 months old at the time. Def...

We stayed the first week of January. What a beautiful place. Very well maintained and very clean rooms and grounds. That is saying something since they had a major cyclone come through just a couple of weeks before we arrived. The staff is so friendly and quick to help in any way. They have a variety of activities (snorkeling, fishing) to take advantage of free of charge. If you just want to relax, the pool is a quiet place or grab a hammock by the beach. It was a wonderful place to stay. We would highly recommend it. The food is good, not the best I have had but not bad. We discovered Ananda's Restaurant at the resort next door is a great place to eat for dinner and you can charge it to your room. Try Lomani's, you will not regret it. They have thought of everything to make your vacation awesome.

This resort has the perfect combination of convenience and serenity. It is adult only (unlike the other resort on the island) which makes for a quiet and relaxing stay. All of the rooms are within 100m of the water. The service is fantastic but not overly aggressive as I've experienced at other high-end resorts.

There are plenty of food options, though it would be easy to exhaust the menu with a stay longer than 5-6 days. Breakfast is included and can be delivered to your room without extra charge. There is an unlimited meal plan available for lunch, afternoon snacks, and dinner but this is only worthwhile if you eat big meals (including appetizers and desserts).

The massage on the beach was very relaxing and fairly priced.

We stayed at Lomani in November 2012 in bure 25. From the moment we arrived, we felt not only relaxed but part of the family. We arrived early in the morning and the hotel still provided us with breakfast even though we did not pay for it that day.

The room itself is beautiful, massive and with a huge bathroom and outdoor shower. We took advantage of the private sun loungers on our balcony daily, when lying there you don't hear a thing and it's completely peaceful and private.

We took full advantage of the daily activities, going snorkeling nearly every day. Do mindful that you may see reef sharks as one swam right under us. But they are more scared of you than you are of them! We were lucky enough to see dolphins on our last day during the dolphin safari, they were adorable and swam with the boat as it moved. The guide on the excursions is fantastic and extremely knowledgable.

We took advantage of the room service, having lunch delivered daily to our bure while we layed on our sun loungers. If you don't want to pay for the lunch menu, wait until 2pm and order from the snack menu which is like half price and an easy quick meal.

The dinners are well priced, a significant selection and enjoyable. There are nightly specials in case something on the menu doesn't interest you. On Wednesday nights they hold a Kava and Fijian banquet dinner, if this isn't your thing, head over to Anandas at Plantation resort where anything you eat can be charged to your room. The menu is a bit more simplified here and it just increases your choices. Do take advantage of the beachfront dining, it's beautiful during sunset and peaceful! Plus they come to sing to you!

We have already booked our return to the island, choosing to stay for 10 days this time as we felt a week was just a few days short! The island is beautiful and the resort do a fantastic job at making your holiday memorable. Also no children under the age of 16 are allowed in which is a huge plus a it only enhances the relaxation and serenity of the resort.

We just returned from celebrating our 11th anniversary and loved every moment at Lomani.This is the ultimate romantic,scenic hideout for couples who wish to be together.The rooms are clean,spacious and all have wonderful views. The pool is quiet and beautiful.The water is crystal clear,warm and with no waves at all. We snorkeled every day and even hand fed fish. The food plan is the way to go and the quality and presentation is fine.
What truly makes Lomani so special is the warmth,friendliness and asstance of the staff-family.A big Vinaka must go to Lusi-Resort Manager for overseeing the staff and their operations.We felt like members of the family and everyone from housekeeping,to water sport personnel were exceptional.We especially appreciated the friendship and attention to service from Jonacini-a very exceptional singer and individual.
We are already looking at our calendar and will be back 'home' in either Jan. or Feb 2014.

We stayed a week here for our honeymoon in January 2013. It's been 1 week since we have been home and we are already saving for our next visit. This is more like visiting family than it is checking into a resort. All of the staff are very friendly and happy. We did pester them a few times with requests and they were more than accommodating. We stayed in buree 26, which was the 2nd last in the row and we found it to be private and quiet and just beautiful. Our buree was approximately 2yrs old and very well built. The indoor shower didn't get a look in. The Kava ceremony on a Wednesday night is a must. It gives you a real taste of Fiji. We snorkelled most days and used the free water sports. We did take a bike ride to the other 2resorts but they don't hold a candle to Lomani. Plantation Island we couldn't wait to get out of. Musket cove was a good stop to have a drink after a bike ride or walk. I'd like to say don't go there so we can have it all to ourselves. Ha ha. But it really is a great place to rekindle your romance or start your marriage on the right track.

Room Tip: Go for the Buree if you can afford it. Numbers 21-27 have the best view of the beach. The other bure...
