“Perfect”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

This was our second time at Lomani. It really is perfect. The resort is beautiful and the staff are amazing. The activities that are included are well planned, timed and organized. You are never bored and spend much of your time in awe of this amazing place. What really sets Lomani apart are its people. Pate, Delay, Bougainville, Peceli, Jonacani and all the rest are always happy and eager to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The new Bures are a great addition as well. They give you that individual experience and privacy that you really want when you come to a place like this. The adults only policy also makes it that much more enjoyable. If you are going to come Fiji and want that unique, quiet and private experience Lomani is the place.

Room Tip: The Bures are the way to go a Lomani.

From the first moment you are greeted at Lomani you know you are in for a real treat. Pertouli greeted us with a big open Fijian smile and is an asset to the management staff.

Bure 24 was were we spent our 7 days, such luxury, so much space and the bed was huge, everything and more than the pictures show. The way the bures are set out with their own access to the beach and a view so beautiful to wake up to.

The food was exceptional, although we did not take the meal deal on offer we were always full after our complimentary nibbles from the chef, with main meals quite large and a shared dessert as we had no room left for 2 servings. The wine list is quite good and reasonablly priced.

The pool was lovely to soak in and cool down and a cabana to lounge on in the shade. Drink waiters cruised around the pool to make sure no was about to dehydrate.

The snorkling was great especially when we went to the reef near the sand bar and feed the fish and incredible experience. The snorkling from Plantation Islands pontoon back to the resort is good as well but you have to follow the reef around.

We walked to Plantation Island which is only a few minutes down the beach to see if we missed anything by not going there and were very pleased that we chose the right resort. Plantation is a nice resort but we knew we were in the right place at Lomani with it's spacious and well thought out surroundings and bures.

All in all, if you want the best then go to Lomani you wont regret it.

I have to mention some very specially people who work long hours and always arrive at work with a smile on their faces, Jonathon (sorry about the spelling) who seemed to be at every meal sitting, overseeing the Lovo and his beautiful singing. Zac who I nick named Mr Cheeky as he was always in the mood to play and had a real cheeky grin on his face especially around Serona and what a lovely girl she is, always smiling always happy. I must also mention Pate, he was shy at first but he opened up and was a delight to talk to about his village and the island.

Thank you to the management who were always helpfull and especially thank you for creating such a lovely environment to have a holiday in.

Lastly, I cried when I left after the singing of the farewell song and the big hugs by the staff because I really felt that I had truelly met the nicest people in Fiji.

Room Tip: I would choose any of the bures, they are so very roomy and the verandahs with their own lounges, ch...

Just returned from a beautiful 2 week trip to Fiji, spending a week at lomani resort. I must say it was spectacular. The resort ad the staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for us. Special mention to Jonathan who was awesome and so sweet, as of course are all the staff. Any negative review are seriously just from very narrow minded people as there was nothing to complain about. Food was awesome and the rooms huge and by clean. I especially loved the fact that breakfast is ordered and served hot, not sat in trays for hours
Thanks to lomani for a great stay xxxx

Excellent staff. Great food (highly recommend meal plan). Perfect location. Great free activities everyday. Perfect for couples. They do your washing daily. Hard drive full of movies (great to pass time when it rained) Even little things like aeroguard is available everywhere!! The gym is the only thing I would rate as very poor (moldy, or out of order. Horrible)
Now the longer story. After a horrible Thai honeymoon, we wanted a good beach and good food, somewhere we could relax and not have people pestering us or a foul stench once you left your resort! We chose Lomani after reading all the great reviews, and we were not disappointed.
On the day we arrived we had to be moved to musket cove resort as our room was flooded, a bit disappointing but we were promised an upgrade the last 4 nights. We could only get a delux suite for the week we wanted to book, which was still very very nice. However, if you can get one, the beach front bure would definately be worth the extra money.
Although from Sydney it does take a whole day travel to and from there, it is defiantly worth it.
This holiday will not disappoint

Room Tip: Beach front bure is REALLY worth it. Although our first night in a delux was perfectly fine

I stayed at Lomani Island resort in January of 2012. Although it was a year ago I feel compelled to write a positive review after reading a few of the negative reviews.
When I stepped foot on Lomani, I had never seen a more beautiful place in my life. Let me start by saying that the greeting we received was simply beautiful, warm and so welcoming. A great first impression.

Resort Grounds: The grounds of Lomani are kept immaculate by the gardeners, the lawn is soft on your feet like a big shag rug. A pleasure to walk on barefoot. The water is that amazing blue you see in postcards. I couldn't believe my eyes. Hammocks and hanging chairs scattered around the place, there was always one free to lay in.
Being an adults only resort was so relaxing. As much as I like kids it was nice to lay by the pool with no screaming or splashing. Speaking of pools, it was lovely and was so nice to swim and look out to the ocean. They also didn't mind if we took our drinks and sat on the steps in the pool.

Rooms:
I was with a group and we occupied 3 of the deluxe suites. They were fantastic. My room was one on the ground floor at the end closest to the restaurant. In my opinion slightly better that the other rooms as it has windows down the side which allow more breezes. Apart from that all the rooms were great, clean and reasonably priced. I didn't feel at all jealous of the bures as these rooms had a wonderful view too. Comfortable lounges to curl up and read a book.
Bathroom was good and private. Although there was a case of a blocked toilet in my friends room which the staff addressed immediately.


Staff:
The staff at Lomani really made the holiday as I'm sure most people will agree. I'm not sure if the same staff are there now but the staff from early 2012 were fantastic, entertaining and bent over backwards with any queries. I can't thank them enough for adding to our holiday.
Mesu and his music were a highlight each night as we ate dinner. We loved how all the staff would join in from time to time on one their favourite songs. Jonavan was a real character and should be commended for his hospitality. As it has been so long I can't remember any other names but they were all fantastic.
The song when we were leaving was enough to bring anyone to tears, it was hard to say goodbye and by the end you really did feel like you were leaving behind new friends. I am still in touch with a few on Facebook!!

Activities: Snorkelling was AMAZING! Check out some of my photos. I couldn't have dreamed of a better snorkelling experience and every snorkelling trip I have taken since fades in comparison. Take every opportunity to go snorkelling. We also took the catamoran out, which was fantastic when we could get enough wind in the sail!

Food: The food was lovely, however I will say that after a week (I was there for almost 2 weeks) I did start to tire of the menu a little as I had tried most of it but it was all still very tasty and the quality was great. The fruit cocktails are delicious, those I didn't tire of.

Massage:
Definitely worth getting a massage. It was amazing!

Overall I think this is a great resort. Even though it's mostly aimed at couples, it's great for a group of couples too. I was just looking in to booking another trip in September for my 30th but the deluxe rooms are booked out already so I guess I wasn't quick enough!

Room Tip: If choosing the deluxe suite, the one on the ground floor at the end closest to the restaurant is go...

We stayed at Lomani from 25/2/13-2/3/13. The staff were gorgeous, the surrounds spectacular and the food delicious! Meal plan was a good investment as food was expensive but amazing. Were given a free upgrade on our 3rd day to a beachfront bure- completed unexpected and wonderful!

The daily activities like snorkeling, coconut demonstrations, fishing, dolphin safari, kava ceremony, lovo preparations and shell markets are all free!

Dinner on the beach is a must- as well as cocktails by the infinity pool- amazing trip- we will definitely be back! Thanks lomani!

My partner and I spent a week in a beach bure at Lomani in November. It would have to be one of the best holidays we have had and we have been to many parts of the world. The staff are just wonderful. We felt completely at home from the moment we were welcomed at the front door. Even though the resort was full it felt like we were there on our own. The food was just great and I recommend purchasing a food package. We will definitely be back as soon as we can.

Thanks to all of the staff at Lomani for a truely memorable holiday.

Room Tip: The beach bure's are the best
