Bula! I love to visit Fiji. I am always excited to visit the friendly islands again and to fly on Fiji Airways. Make sure to watch my video about the brand new Fiji Airways Premier lounge in Nadi, Fiji.

I left Los Angeles at 11pm and arrived the following morning in Nadi and had the entire day to explore at Malolo Island.

Rosie Holidays took me from the airport to the jetty so I could travel by private boat with Mamanuca Express to Malolo Island Resort.  Sunrise at the pier was beautiful and the waters were very calm for my beautiful ride to the Mamanuca Islands.

Your kids will love Tia’s Treehouse where they will learn about the culture, language and the Fijian Crested Iguana. They can participate in a meke (dance) and they have their own pool.

I loved my villa which was close to the water with beautiful views. Eat at the Beach Bar or in the Treehouse but whatever you choose you will be sure to relax!

Thank you to Subsurface Fiji for a great afternoon dive! They came right to Malolo Island Resort to pick me up! We saw so many creatures and it was great to be underwater diving!

Or why not experience a traditional Fijian church service available to guests each Sunday. Fiji is a multi-religious country represented by all major religions. The majority of Fijians are Christians and on Malolo Island there is a Methodist service each Sunday at Yaro Village where the highlight is to experience the exquisite voices of the local Fijian choir.

Do you want to go Island Hopping? It is gorgeous and you can see Monuriki where Cast Away was filmed!
I was told: “the best time to be on the water is in the early morning before the wind picks up and it is certainly the best time for an early morning island hopping trip.!”

ON THE ISLAND TOUR: “We take you past Castaway Island, Mana Island, Matamanoa Island and finally MonuRiki Island where we stop for a swim, snorkel and walk along the beach. MonuRiki Island is one of the most stunningly beautiful islands in the Mamanucas and is where the famous “Cast Away” movie with Tom Hanks was filmed. The trip then heads north around Monu Island, west round the top of Yanuya Island, past Tokoriki Island before turning south for the return trip past Tavua Island and finally stopping at Mana Sand Bank for another swim and snorkel, before heading back for a late breakfast at the resort.”
