“Second honey moon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

We had a fantastic and very relaxing time on our stay. I found a package through Expedia and it was very good. We stayed at the regular suite and had an amazing view from our room. Better second floor of course and the last one had the best view.
The beach bures looked good but not all of them have a great view.
Our suite was perfect :-)
We did a little of everything and tried their amazing food at the restaurant. Breakfast was very nice and filling and we only had fresh juices and awesome Yucca Fritters for lunch. Dinner was awesome.
We looked forward for the special of the night and was very pleased with the local plates that the chef suggested!
Everybody was extremely friendly and helpful.
We walked along the beach and had a fantastic time, took the sea kayaks and were great, did some snorkeling and was awesome, took the bikes around the island and stopped for a drink at the little village and was an opportunity to see the houses around the island, used the pool to cool off, took the tour to one of the villages and did some shopping, what else...did everything and had a lot of fun.
Highly recommend dinner on the beach! Just take mosquito spray and you'll be fine.
We thought that food and drinks were overpriced but food was worth it. About drinks we're good because we took wine and champagne from the Duty Free and enjoyed them from our balcony and had an occasional beer or fresh juice with dinner.
They should have someone coming to the beach and the pool area to offer you something to drink and put little tables next to the sun chairs at the beach. I'm sure that they will sell more.
Also never understood why we're not able to order a snack at lunch time to enjoy at the beach because it was only "lunch time"...funny...
Make sure if you order breakfast in your room that they will take it because we order it once and never showed up...
We had a fantastic stay!! second honey moon...
No kids in the hotel...YES!!!

We stayed at Lomani over the New Year. We had a beachfront bure which was superb, very functional and effective air-conditioning which is essential at this time of year. The location is fantastic just a short 50 minute ride by hi speed cat from port. the bures are exceptionally well appointed, spacious and very clean.
All the staff working at Lomani really care for the clients and this comes through with genuine warmth and concern that the holiday is enjoyed.
All sporting amenities are well appointed, well monitored and the equipment from canoes to paddle boards are in excellent condition.
The menu has been revitalised since our previous visit and is a step up from a year ago.
In essence an excellent small resort, big on genuine care and wonderful warmth displayed by all who work there.
As returnees we were made to feel as if we had revisited the family.
Exceptional in all regards, book your holiday at Lomani, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Beach front bures are best

We stayed here for 4 nights with friends. We had bures side by side. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Beautiful water and sunsets. Pool very warm but so is the beach! Very relaxing massages.
The bures were lovely and spacious, clean and cool. Great selection of movies if you need some time out of the sun.
Really enjoyed the time

We had a wonderful 6 nights and Lomani is a place that grows on you every day and every day you relax a little more. "Fiji time" at its best. Before we left I was craving more photos, so I will be uploading some stunners for you. The sea water is crystal clear especially out on the reefs when snorkeling. And it's sooooo warm, you can hardly cool off. Pool too is warm. Food is great. Order off the menu if you need to - they are very accommodating.

A big shout out to Jope, Jack, Emily, Lucy and See-now-Finau - you were great and made everything that extra special. We lounged, we drank, we ate, we snorkeled, we walked - we didn't want to leave. Usually, I am ready to go home after 5 days, but not this time. Could have had another 6 nights no problem. I had thought that I might get Island Fever, but not the case at all. Lots to do or not. Go. Truly charming,

We honeymooned in New Zealand for 16 days prior to arriving at Lomani Island resort, so we were really looking forward to some relaxation to end the journey!! We stayed in a bure, and I wouldn't recommend doing it any other way, it is definitely worth the extra money! The rooms and property are maintained beautifully, and the staff...the staff is very genuine and really made Lomani a special destination for us!!

Lomani is nothing short of a heavenly experience for those looking out for a tranquil, picturesque and a refreshing time. My wife and I had the pleasure of spending the bulk (4 nights) of our honeymoon at Lomani and it was perfect in every way.

We were booked at the Hibiscus Suite and the room was beautiful and comfortable with a private patio and a few steps to the pristine beach. What is important is that Lomani being an adults only resort, provides couples with the peace and privacy they look for.

The resort provides a perfect balance between relaxing and a whole range of activities to choose from if you like. The pool was gorgeous and the beach beds around were quite comfortable to relax and soak the sun in. We also tried some of the activities on offer like the Dolphin Safari, Snorkelling, Village Tour, the earth oven etc., and the activities co-ordinator Peceli was always there to help. Also, there are plenty of kayak boats on offer to enjoy the crystal clear waters. As honeymooners, we were also given a complimentary couple massage by the beach side, which was just wonderful.

Since my wife and I both were vegetarians, the choice on the Flame Tree restaurant menu was limited. However, we need to compliment the chef, as she was quite accommodating to ensure there were specific dishes for us every day, for both breakfast and dinner.

Finally, our experience wouldn’t have been such a delight, if not for probably the friendliest staff we have ever met in any of our stays. Each and every one of them, right from the manager Lusi, to Linda, Petually, Elenoa, Peceli, the guy who sung hindi songs to us during dinner; went out of their way to make our stay really memorable. And the farewell song they sung us while leaving was quite moving.

We hope to be back soon guys :)

Lomani (meaning Love) is truly what this resort represents in all aspects. With its picturesque views, this 5 star resort exceeded our wildest expectations.

We decided to book Lomani Island Resort after meeting one of their friendly staff at a travel expo, they were so lovely and so helpful in such a busy place yet they took the time to explain everything without being pushy and I’m so glad they did!!!

It is honestly such a beautiful place; Lomani is a child free resort which was a top priority for us on our honeymoon, which meant peace and relaxation. Which is exactly what we needed after such a long stressful time planning our wedding, being able to really unwind and slip into Fiji Time was honestly just PRICELESS!! Take it from us, nothing beats lounging by the pool, drinking cocktails (and lots of cocktails there were) and watching the picture perfect sunsets (too good to be believed unless you were there). Not to mention for when you are feeling a little more active or adventurous there is always the numerous all inclusive daily actives you can participate in such as the dolphin safari, snorkeling in ‘Lomani’s garden heaven’ – coral reef, to name a few.

The accommodation is luxurious; we stayed in one of the beach front bureau’s (a must experience) which were so spacious and modern. The food is delicious and truly first class dining (which we didn’t expect) a real credit to their amazing chefs. All of the staff are so friendly, warm and welcoming and Lomani really felt like a home away from home.

If we had to come up with one thing that we didn’t like about the whole experience it would have to be that; 7 days just wasn’t long enough time in heaven, we really didn’t want to leave.

This is a MUST see place and we can’t wait for our return trip for our anniversary next year.

So to Lusi and her staff – Vinaka from Mike & Alisha

Room Tip: If its your first time, you must stay in one of the bureau's- you won't regret it!
