The Malolo Island Resort has been described as an ‘idyllic Fijian island paradise’ and it is very true.
Located 16 kilometres off the Fijian mainland, the resort is a family-friendly haven where beautiful accommodation, loads of activities and great dining come together. As travellers take a catamaran, private speedboat, or a seaplane ride to Malolo, the light blue of the Pacific Ocean turns into a rich green of tropical forests as they approach the island. Within just minutes, the bustling city life of Nadi is left behind and replaced with spotless golden sand beaches and traditional Fijian villas.
Owning the philosophy of ‘disconnect to reconnect’, there are no TVs, radios or telephones in the accommodation here, only the whisper of balmy Fijian winds, the swish of palm trees and the rolling lullaby of waves lapping the shore. And the occasional thump of falling coconuts. The island and its waters form a protected marine zone to preserve its marvellous underwater coral gardens and variety of aquatic fauna. Needless to say, snorkelers will discover an underwater paradise to endlessly explore. Some of the coral formations, which have taken decades to form, resemble miniature explosions of colour frozen in the warm Pacific waters.
The 46 bures have been designed as plantation-style duplex housing, blending traditional Fijian high-vaulted ceilings and modern touches like king-size beds, air-conditioning, turn-down service, premium toiletries and linens. The bures located on the resort’s inner perimeter are surrounded by landscaped gardens and hibiscus shrubs; while the ones lining the beach are situated with great swimming just a few feet away from the doorstep.
Aside from the incredible swimming and snorkelling right off the beach, the resort also hosts numerous water-sports such as water-skiing, donut rides, wake-boarding and banana boat rides. Our South Pacific Specialists can also include an adventurous jet ski safari, which would take guests out and about the islands on a day-tour. There is also great parasailing to be done, where views and photo opportunities of the great Malolo Island below are second to none.
Lead by Executive Chef Ryan Ward, the wining and dining arena hits a fine note for all travellers. The Terrace Restaurant is again reminiscent of colonial-era dining pavilions, with spacious seating arrangements overlooking two of the resort’s pools. The menu showcases Pacific Rim cuisine as well as Asian, Chinese, Indian and Thai. Saturdays are traditional lovo feast evenings, where dances and songs accompany slow-cooked Fijian delicacies. Treetops is more formal as a restaurant venue with a daily-changing menu. It overlooks the resort’s gardens and the adults’ pool; making a perfect venue for small group dinners and events. As the name suggests, the Beach Bar is set alongside the island’s edge – dishing out salads, pizzas, burgers and a variety of gourmet fare along with cocktails. Besides the Beach Bar and Treetops, there is also the swim-up bar at the adults’ pool. And for a romantic evening, a private dinner under the stars with a serenading guitarist is sure to set the mood right.
The Malolo Island Resort is an amazing haven for families and couples who want to disconnect from daily stresses.
