My family and I just returned from 8 nights at Vomo. Wow!! It really is gorgeous. Food is great. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are really lovely, so many choices!! We stayed in the Hillside villas as when I booked the beachfront were already booked out, but you know what, I was actually relieved. I prefered them because they were more private than the beachfront which obviously are very close to the beach but also interconnecting. The hillside are freestanding. So if you don't feel like having to keep quiet for your neighbours or the kids wake easily the hilltop villas are perfect. My only gripe with our villa was that the phone in the room was not working the whole time and it was inconvenient when you wanted to book activities or the spa we had to physically go to that area. We did mention it quite a few times however it wasn't rectified. By no means a holiday ruiner though. My other suggestion would be to arrive and depart by either helicopter or seaplane as Vomo as yet has no jetty so if you disembark from a boat you actually do get wet as you have to jump in the water, awkward with bags, small children, grandparents as we found. We changed our return to a helicopter and the view was awesome!! My mother who was too scared to do it on arrival actually begged me to change the plans as we arrived in choppy conditions on the boat and we were actually flying off our seats in the boat everytime we hit a wave (constantly). Also it's just so much easier and quicker, no transfers to the port. Staff are all lovely and so friendly and they love kids!! If Vomo could manage it I think a separate Childrens pool would be a great idea, they certainly have enough room on the island. Another tip which doesnt just pertain to Vomo but to other Fiji islands is pack some water shoes for adults and children there is broken coral and rocks in the water so they make walking in the water so much easier! Snorkellling at Vomo is great, as is the scuba diving! Glass bottom kayaks are awesome and the kids were able to do it themselves! Fishing trips were great with what seems to be a repeatedly successful area to get great sized Spanish Mackerel and Trevally among many others I'm sure. Walking around is lovely and even during peak seasons you never feel like there are too many people! It's a truly beautiful island, don't hesitate to go!!
