Great resort, great staff.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 weeks ago
We were looking for a nice relaxing week away and it took us an age to decide on where to go. In the end we thought Lomani ticked most of our boxes.

The resort shares a large island with Plantation (heaps and heaps of kids) and Musket Cove (very tidal). While at Lomani you will only see kids when going to and from the resort.

The ground are really well looked after. The pool is magic and the restaurant looks over the pool, the green lawn and onto the ocean. The beach is a bit tidal so you can't snorkel at low tide, however they offer free snorkeling trips that are not to be missed. We fell into a routine of breakfast, snorkeling or diving (separate cost) and then lunch and relaxing by the pool, heaven!

We had a deluxe suite which was massive with a nice outdoor shower. It's only let down was the lack of bedside lights, not really a deal breaker. The bed was very comfortable and we could set outside our suite and look out to the sea.

Meals were pretty good, although after a week, I thought there could be a more varied menu. I would not want to stay two weeks with the options available. The drinks at the bar and were good value (in that they are cheaper than buying drinks in Melbourne).

Staff were really really friendly and made us feel welcome in everything we did. Apparently the resort was full when we were there, however with only 50 odd rooms it never felt busy.

Two things I didn't really like. One was paying for better wifi as it was spotty in places and limited to two devices. This should really no longer be a thing.
Checkout should really be 11. A few more staff would get the housing keeping done in time to check in at 2 and out at 11.

        Paradise on the beach. Our beachfront pool bure was incredible from the immaculate comfort,attentive service and views of sea & sunsets. We really have it all here. Reasonably priced drinks and sensational food (variety & quality) and the staff are beautiful, helpful and happy people. Love it!

        2nd time, my wife and I visited this wonderful idyllic resort on Mololo Island just off Fiji mainland.
        A 50 min ferry ride away from Port Denearu, you arrive to be warmly greeted by a melodic Fijian song sung by the most friendliest people on this earth.
        Lomani is adult only, peaceful, lazy, and breathtakingly beautiful, and you're unlucky if you .eet any one else on the wo derful sandy beach. The rooms are scrupulously clean, and the evening meals are a mix of A la carte and wholesome food and a great choice. The Lamb shank and the Lamb fillet specials are to die for. Never ever had a bad meal, again served by staff who go out of their way to make you feel so warm and welcome. You gotta try their Fijian Curries as well!!!
        If you want a high-speed life, roaring around on a jet ski or being towed on a floating banana, the Lomani is defo not for you. However, if you want no screaming crying, moaning kids, PEACE, and total relaxation, then Lomani is for you.
        Oh. BTW, treat yourself self and your partner to beachside massage and try the Fijian BoBo massage. Time it for when the tide is coming in, and all you hear is the gentle waves and the expert attention of the masseur's. You will just drift away into what can only be described as heaven.

        We visited for the first time in April with another couple and we were all so happy we’d chosen Lomani. It’s a beautiful spot on Malolo Lai Lai island and well removed from the very busy and noisy resort next door, although you do have to catch the Malolo Cat from there.
        The Bure’s are really quite sumptuous with a super comfortable bed, inviting lounge and a large, clean bathroom complete with an outdoor shower. Our view was to die for, looking straight out to the ocean and framed by palms and frangipanis.
        The food was top notch and there was plenty of it with an excellent variety to choose from. We certainly did not go hungry.
        You can do as much or as little as you want here, there were plenty of activities to choose, snorkelling, diving, fishing etc, bicycles if you fancy a ride around to some of the other resorts or just laze around the gorgeous pool with a good book and a glass of something delicious.
        Of course what makes a place like this so fantastic is the staff. They were without exception just brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, they made us so welcome and we loved seeing them each day. A special shout out to Belou and Caroline who always went the extra mile.
        We’ve visited many times to Fiji and Lomani Island Resort was one of the nicest we’ve been to.

        Lomani is a very relaxing, tranquil, resort. Adults-only means that the clientele are mostly retired with a few young couples. Food is good, service and staff are excellent, and the main pool area and grounds are well maintained and lush. Rooms are spacious.

        Check your transport links before booking. Passengers must land at Nadi airport by 4pm to get the last (Malolocat) ferry from Port Denirau to the island at 5.30pm. Also check time of year for your visit - March was very rainy.

        We recently stayed at Lomani for our 20th wedding anniversary. Although the weather wasn’t amazing, the resort and the staff were absolutely fantastic! You instantly feel welcome from the moment you are greeted with Fijian songs and the beautiful warm smiling staff!
        Check in process was efficient, our welcome coconut drink, getting taken to our accommodation was a fantastic touch too. As well as offering so many amazing activities, experiences, entertainment and delicious food! It’s all the little personal touches that set the resort apart from others! The welcome and farewell notes, the turn down service and delicious cookies of a night time and the farewell song while we were waiting to get taken to the Malolo cat was so beautiful that it actually made me cry!
        Our room was amazingly clean and luxurious and we didn’t ever want to leave! The grounds at Lomani are superbly maintained, lush and so inviting!
        I would like to highly commend every single one of your staff members! Always going above and beyond to deliver amazing service! We really were treated like family and were always made to feel welcome x
        We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we look forward to returning to Lomani sooner rather than later!
