WHAT'S SO SPECIAL?
This small beachside resort is for adults only, meaning you can relax in total peace no matter what time of year you decide to visit Fiji's famous Mamanuca Islands (which makes our list of the best Fiji islands for a tropical escape).
The Lomani Island Resort has three kinds of rooms. The Deluxe Suite is the most affordable option and comes with a separate living room and bedroom overlooking the water as well as a private balcony or patio.
The other options step up the luxury levels a little more. There are two kinds of beachfront bures (little bungalows) — one with a plunge pool and one without. These won't cost you that much more than the suites, but they do give you a greater sense of privacy. The large outdoor rain showers are a big win, too.
FOOD & DRINK
There are stacks of dining options at this Fiji island resort. The Flame Tree Restaurant serves a range of cuisine options from steak and chips to pasta and traditional Fijian Kokoda. Either dine on local dishes (always recommended) or try something a little more familiar. It's all up to you.
And if you're looking for something a little extra, ask the team to set up a private dinner on the beach. It's romantic without being overly cheesy and staged — the Lomani team will place a small table out on the sand dunes and let you dine with uninterrupted sunset views.
THE LOCAL AREA
The Lomani Island Resort is located on one of the popular Mamanuca Islands — a small archipelago located near the main island of Fiji. From the resort, you can easily get around to all the best parts of this region by chartering a small boat for the day or jumping on a ferry.
Hit up the famous Cloud 9 floating bar or simply do some island hopping, snorkelling around coral reefs and lounging beneath palm-lined beaches.
Overall, this Fiji resort is for a laid back holiday full of lounging and swimming. But you can also get the best out of this tropical destination by joining a few of the resort's extra activities.
There's a sunset cruise which costs less than $80 and includes your first drink as well as roaming canapés during the trip.
The resort also offers a 'Sunset Serenader' for which the team will direct you to a private part of the beach where you will be serenaded by a local musician for an hour and includes a platter of canapés and a bottle of wine.
