The tiny island of Fiji primarily lives in tourism that literally drives their GDP to close to $2 billion a year. But economics is just half of the equation—or even a quarter. The republic is simply blessed with all the good things Mother Nature can offer. The almost-transparent waters are teeming with marine life, the seas are normally calm, there are several islands to choose from, a number of them offering complete privacy. The sun is out for most time of the year, and if the seas no longer appeal, a quick trip to Suva, where shops and bars are abundant, can give you a quick look-back onto urban civilization. Best of all, it currently offers some of the world’s ideal hideaways, one of which is Malolo Island Resort.
A trip to one of the most fabulous resorts in the islands of Fiji begins with your own choice of adventure. You can catch a more private seaplane or get a glimpse of what’s ahead on board a catamaran, which you can hire from Denarau Harbor.
Once you arrive, you will be greeted by Malolo Island Resort’s hospitable and happy crew, as one of them ushers you to reception desk. It’s expected you’ve already chosen your burse before your arrival. A number of months during the year, the small island resort becomes jam-packed with usually New Zealanders and Australians who are taking advantage of the beautiful weather and the azure seas of the island nation.
But just to give you an idea of these bures, there are 12 deluxe and more than 25 that guarantee an ocean view at any time of the year. Three rooms are just perfect for families (the resort has been designed to be extra welcoming to kids).
The rooms can never be compared to luxurious resorts and hotels that tend to populate tropical islands like Fiji, but they’ve been added to capture the overall tropical theme of the resort’s surroundings: ceiling fans, wide windows, and your very own private verandah, where you can hold a more intimate party with newfound friends or take your private meals.
Malolo Island Resort offers a host of water-related activities. Visitors are provided with complimentary snorkeling gear, while kayaks, hobie cats, and paddleboats are available for hire. Should Mamanucas seems a tad distance away from you, you can opt for windsurfing right at the resort’s front yard. The winds can also add more excitement and thrill to your parasailing and water-skiing.
It’s a crime not to venture into the deeper waters of Fiji. If diving isn’t your forte, you can take a few more classes through PADI diving courses.
Children, on the other hand, can spend their time spotting dolphins or basking ni the swimming pools. They are also very much welcome to venture into any of the restaurants and the lone lounge of the resort called Talei (provided they are at least 13 years old).
Or you and your family can do nothing but feel the warmth of the sun and enjoy the thoughts of freedom even for just a short while.
