The décor combines traditional workmanship, such as the wooden inlay around the ceilings, with contemporary furniture and all the usual hi-tech amenities, such as hi-speed Wi-Fi. A central building, inspired by a traditional Fijian canoe house, includes a restaurant. There’s also a beach bar and a poolside bar. The Tatadra Spa offers Pure Fiji treatments.
In the Area
Malolo Island is one of Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands, which includes Monuriki where Castaway was filmed. It offers bush walks, nature trails, and a local village if you fancy experiencing some Fiji culture. Ancient sites include the old village of Yaro and Potters Cave, Vatu Tagi (meaning “weeping rock”), Vatu Tabu (the sacred wishing rock), and Yadra Vula, a site of early Fijian habitation. There are numerous diving sites, including a plunge to see the Namotu coral cay.
How to Get There
My wife and I spent 12 days in New Zealand and finished out our trip with 4 nights at Liku Liku. This truly was the highlight of our trip. Starting out the staff was certainly the best part of the resort. You received constant attention and were never in need of anything. While at the pool you received fresh fruit and cold scent infused face towels that were amazingly refreshing. The food was simply the best we had ever had in our lives. Very small menu that changes everyday. Dinner was 3 app choices, 3 mains and 3 desserts. For 2 people you could order all 3 and the staff would gladly bring you all of it, of course free of charge. Even lunch was appetizer main and dessert. You will not go hungry at this resort.
The pool was beautiful along with the bungalows. We saw the most amazing sunsets that we will remember forever. There were activities offered but we chose not to partake as we were just trying to relax after 12 days in New Zealand. We did go snorkling and paddle boating which were not even technically considered activities by the resort.
A few drawbacks just to mention:
-The resort was preparing to close for multiple months to do renovations. We had gone at a time which was considered "slow" or rainy season (February) and there was minor construction going on which you could hear by the pool. I imagine after they close for the major renovations this wouldn't be a future issue.
-There were a few gecko's in the room. I guess these were their typical "insects". They didn't bother use much.
-There were lots of crabs, like everywhere, which was kind of weird/ frightening at first. You get over it and they do not bother you.
-It was a little buggy as it was raining season but the staff provided many options to deal with this.
-The lagoon was very susceptible to high and low tide. There were times in the day when the lagoon was basically empty (just sand). Didn't matter that much, we were by the pool most of the time anyway. If we wanted to go in the ocean it still didn't really affect us but it was surprising. We did go snorkling right off the dock, during low tide, and the fish were still incredible!!
Great resort overall. Our pictures of this place were amazing and it was incredible relaxing. There were only about 40 guests at the resort and we saw no more than 20 at the pool, it was incredible. I can't even imagine how amazing it will be after multiple months of renovations. Highly recommended.
There are hardly any words to describe the perfection of staying at the beautiful Liku Liku Resort. From the arrival greeting to the hospitality of the entire staff, I have never been so taken by a resort. The decor is elegant Fijian, and the spirit of Fiji prevails. They also participate in protecting local endangered species and have a scientific member of staff to explain their program.
It’s a magical experience, excellent food and the kindest and most welcoming people of Fiji make this an experience not to be missed if traveling to Fiji.
Secluded property. Friendly staff. Rooms are spacious. Outdoor showers in each villa. Well prepared food.
The rooms are overrated for the price. Should be way better based on the pricepoint. Furniture is aging. Bungalows dont have any TV connectivity. Food service only 3 times a day. Mediocre lagoon. Completely drains midday and makes the property look way worse than in the photos (no crystal clear blue water). Too much seclusion. Nothing to do on the resort.
Managers wouldn’t let 3 people stay in a bungalow and forced us to spend extra $$$ on a second bungalow and find a different hotel for the last 2 nights of our stay.
Staff were unwilling to make an accomodation and ridiculued me for not knowing it was a “Couples Only” resort, making it clear they only care about honeymooners and no one else (as all of blind 5 star glowing reviews indicate).
We stayed in Likuliku for a week in july 2018 for our honeymoon.
I would like to compliment the cusine beacuse everything was delicious. We had to take a day break from food beacuse it was too good and much.
Personel was extremely nice, sometimes to nice. They even remembered our names on the day of arrival.
It was good that this is only adults resort, it was realy peacefull and relaxed.
Deluxe beachfront Bure was nice, maybe a little bit dark but nicely decorated, spacious and gave you a filling of a tropical getaway. Jacuzzi in front of it was a little bit cold in time of our stay but we didn’t came in hot season so this was understandable for us.
Public area were clean, there were two bars with wide selection of drinks, prices not overrated.
There were a lot of mosquitos at the time. Resort did their best to get rid ob them but sometimes it became unplesant.
My only negative comment is related to the low tide. The water bures looked very odd when there was no water under them. Soo the view on them wasn’t so plesant at that time.
If you are active turist and you would like to do some activities beside snorkling and kanyuing maybe this is not best choice for you.
I would recomed heli transfer to the island. It takes around 15 minutes and you get some beautiful views.
I have never experienced such a relaxing place ever. After the kava ceremony (on Monday nights), my husband slept better than he can remember. Needless to say, we bought some more to bring home. The staff was amazing, remembering our names, what we liked, who we are. Amelia was a gem along with all the staff. They made us feel so welcome and appreciated. So lovely. The food was michelin star quality. Chef Shaun Anderson outdid himself meal after meal. Lunch was three courses, dinner five. No phones or hats. You just relax and enjoy. They have wonderful activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, parasailing, picnic lunches at honeymoon island. I can't say enough about how well run this property is. General Manager is Steve, and his famous lab Coco, are around the property every day. Easy to talk to and be with.
