Lomani Island Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2017

My partner and i stayed at Lomani for a week in May 2017 (really delayed review i know!).
Word can not express how great of a holiday we had. This resort is just bliss. If you are looking to just relax and unwind, this is the place for you. We have never come back from a holiday feeling so relaxed. Even though we were only there 6 nights, it honestly felt like 2 weeks.
The staff are fabulous. So friendly and most of them greeting you by name when you walk past them (which makes it just that little bit more special).
The pool cabana's are great. We spent most of our days relaxing in these, drinking cocktails and reading our books. If we weren't here, were were doing a terrific free daily activity. The only activity that wasn't free was Cloud 9 (only FJ$79), but this was by far our favourite. Do yourself a favour and make sure you get to Cloud 9!! Incredible :-)
The food was also excellent (compliments to the chef's). We still talk about the most amazing lobster pasta we have ever tried! We chose not to get the dinner package as we wanted to leave our options open to try the other restaurants (at neighbouring resorts). We didn't end up trying other restaurants as we just couldn't bring ourselves to leave the peace and quiet of Lomani (other resorts full of screaming children).
I see some reviews saying it is expensive, but we found it to be fairly similar pricing to Australia (average of AU$15 cocktails, AU$8-$10 beers, AU$20 Entree and AU$35-$40 main meals).
Overall, this was probably one of our favourite holidays and are already talking about going back again next year, and hopefully getting married here in 2019 (when i finally get organised!).
Vinaka Lomani :-)

Room Tip: Embrace Fiji Time and Go to Cloud 9 (heaven on earth!)

My wife and I stayed at Lomani for a week... the staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. This resort is a no kids under 16 resort and so is very quiet and relaxing. All the facilities like snorkling tours, paddle boarding and hobie cats are complimentary. I can't say enough about this resort... I would go back in a heart beat.

Bula! This is a wonderful little 'adults only' resort with no more than 60 guests at any one time. Situated on a peaceful little island called Malolo-LaiLai, the premises and all rooms / bures overlook the beach and the sea. The beach is a long stretch of white sand (with coconut palm trees) and offers nice rattan-style loungers under little parasols. Our room, a Deluxe in a two-level building with eight rooms in total, was spacious and airy, and had a lounge, a separate bedroom with lots of wardrobe space and a bathroom with a walk-in rain shower. Everything was spotlessly clean and the service included a daily wash-and-fold service for laundry. All rooms are non-smoking but smoking is permitted in the outside areas (balcony / terrace).
The restaurant is in an outside space under a wooden roof and on a raised decking area. There is a good amount of choice for each meal of the day, and the quality of the food is fantastic (do not agree with Karen A's review on this point at all!). The service can be a little bit slow at times, but then you are on Fiji time here - and you get some excellent music at dinner as well (a guitarist and singer - listen in particular to Jonathan's rendition of 'Hallelujah').
All staff members are exceptionally friendly, welcoming and helpful, and it is worth talking to them and learning more about them and their stories.
There are various massages at very reasonable prices on offer (directly on the beach if you wish), and water-sports (kayaks - some kayaks with glass bottom - , mini-catamarans, paddle boards, surfboards) and trips (snorkelling, handline fishing, dolphin-watching, shopping) are generally included in the price. Watch out for the tides though as you will have to wade out into the sea quite a bit at low tide. For a fee, you can also engage in parasailing and jetskiing at the nearby Plantation Island Resort. In the grounds, you find a large swimming pool, a table-tennis facility and a number of hammocks to chill out in.
We spent 10 days at Lomani and did not want to leave!!! We have no hesitation in recommending this resort if you are looking for some quiet, relaxing holidays far away from all the hustle and bustle of normal life. It is not cheap, but well worth it in our opinion! Vinaka vakalevu, Lomani!

A terrific adult's resort with reasonable restaurant and a real sense of being away from the world. Included water sports are a bonus, and the generally laid back feel of this terrific resort makes it perfect for escaping the world.

Friendly staff are personable and approachable, which is good, given that the resort can run on Island time occasionally - it's not uncommon to order a drink and forget about it before it turns up! The setting is great, and rooms comfortable.

It's not 5 stars, but it is genuine easygoing luxury with a homely, authentic feel. Very highly recommended - we stayed at a busy, bustling 5-star place before and after our week at Lomani, and would take the relaxed friendliness of Lomani Island resort over the fake luxury of chain resorts any day.

Room Tip: Splash out for the beach bure - it's worth it!

Lomani Island Resort was just what the doctor ordered! After a month of illness my husband and I spent 7 nights at this glorious piece of paradise and came home fully recovered. We regretted staying only 7 nights. We were warmly welcomed back as returnees with a beautiful Fijian serenade, champagne, a fruit basket and two souvenir bath robes when we left. Our bure on the beach was heaven; we used the outdoor shower a lot! The staff were always attentive to our needs especially the Resort Manager. Vinaka vaka levu Lomani we will be back!
