“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left i was in heaven. We stayed in a first floor deluxe room which were modern, clean, large and beautiful. The grounds were a picture and the beach delightful. We had the meal inclusive option and found everything we ate to be superb. Fiji night memorable and fun and easily beat the other Kava ceremonies we attended while staying in Fiji. Our air con started to leak during our 7 day stay it was fixed immediately and we were given their sincerest apologies. The pool area magnificent,, peaceful and you could always find either a hut or a lounge. There was so much to do or not, bikes, canoes and day trips were fantastic.
However the jewels in the Lomani experience were the staff and i cannot say enough about them. Whilst i cannot name everyone i certainly remember our regulars. A big THANKYOU to Delai, Jope, Petueli, Alipate, Serena, Mere, Finow, Arizzi and Shannel all lead by Lusi (forgive my spelling). Never to forget the voice of an angel Mes- I await your CD. Whilst we were just another couple you made us feel special. We will be back- Kate and John.

My partner and I visited Lomani in early August 2013 for 8 days. It was amazing. The resort is set in the most beautiful location. The staff work hard to keep the pool and grounds in such mint condition. We stayed in the Beachfront Bure which was lovely worth the expense with it beautiful interior, indoor and outdoor showers and privacy with views on the beach - amazing at sunset. There are also two other resorts near by if you want a change of scenery, Lomani's sister Resort - Plantation Island Resort near by allows you to charge back to your room which was handy and also allowed you to use their facilities. I unfortunately woke up sick on our first day of the holiday and was lucky that Plantation Island Resort had a medical centre fully equipment with some lovely nurses and medication. Antibiotics in hand I was still able to enjoy my time at the island, relaxing, swimming and working on my island tan.

The staff are what make this resort exceptional. They are friendly, warm, caring, helpful and always smiling. I was extra spoiled throughout our stay with special hot tea of Honey and Lemon once the staff found out I was unwell . Much like all the other reviewers say you can do as much activity as you like or simply relax. The resort offers a dolphin and snorkel tour for free to all guest which is worth taking. Food was good, we are not big eaters so did not take up the meal plan offer, which for us worked out best cost wise. Most lunches we were able to share as they are a large serve. Especially after a buffet breakfast which also included fresh cooked eggs etc..

The island offers you a romantic, peaceful location surrounded by beautiful scenery. You almost feel like your stranded on a deserted island but with all the mod con's and some truly beautiful people who want to make your stay an easy, relaxing and enjoyable one.

Cant wait to revisit - this time fit and healthy so I can get into all the water activities!

Room Tip: Beachfront Bure are perfect for views and privacy, if your budget can extended to them. We walked p...

Beautiful adults only resort. Stylish white bures it had almost a Mediterranean feel.
It is very peaceful, friendly but unobtrusive staff and good restaurant including tables on the beach.
A nice place to chill out and unwind.
They have a small spa and gym at the moment but are expanding this.

Room Tip: they are all good :)

My wife and myself stayed for two wonderful weeks on this resort. All i can say is it is just fantastic ! The staff are so friendly and attentive, and on top of the most delicious food and the fabulous pool we enjoyed the best holiday we have ever had. We have stayed at other resorts in both Fiji and Vanuatu and this is by far the best. Kids free ? yessssssss was worth the extra money. We both love children but the holiday without the children was definitely a plus. A big thank you to staff and management. Definitely will return to Lomani Island Resort.

This was an amazing holiday for my partner and I. We stayed in one of the beachfront bures at the resort, which was lovely. The resort staff were friendly and very accommodating. Their real job was to make sure you were relaxed and enjoying yourself. You could do as little or as much as you wanted. We snorkelled at every opportunity and this was fantastic. Lots of colour and variety of fish. The pool and the day beds were plentiful and also very relaxing. I would probably give the place a 4.5 out of 5 because the food was the only thing that wasn't perfection. I was expecting a 'sheraton/Hilton type experience. Breakfast was a little disappointing but dinner was good. I also was hoping for the seafood buffet one night and it didn't come (oh well!)

I can't wait to go back. We had the most relaxing and romantic time away. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: I loved the beachfront bures. Very private and well decked out.

My wife and i have just returned from Lomani resort after our second trip there. the staff were just amasing, it had been 2 years since we had stayed and they remembered us by name and even what room we had stayed in prior. The food was nothing less than amasing and the rooms were clean and just everything that we could have asked for and more.

My husband and I had six wonderful nights at Lomani. Already attending a wedding at Shangri-La on the coral coast, which was enjoyable but this place is amazing!!!
The staff are the most warm, sincere, friendly people we have ever met and I have tears in my eyes now just thinking about them. I do like the idea there are so many free activities and we enjoyed all of them (maybe not the gallery tour but the rest were great) Haven't rode a bike for years and loved using the ones which were available. We paid for the meal package and were impressed with everything on the menu.
Our accommodation was an Ocean Bure which was lovely but would be more than happy when returning (which we will be) to down grade and stay much longer as the other accommodation was quite nice also. All accommodation has ocean views.
The resort is spotlessly clean, spectacular views, peaceful, extremely relaxing, just wonderful..
For Surfers a boat left from Plantation Resort jetty and my husband paid about $70.00 Fijian, (about $47.00 australian), during our stay two surf trips went out each day...
Bulla Lomani we will return!!!
