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
What an amazing week away! The resort, the views, the snorkeling, the food were all exceptional, but the friendly staff are outstanding and made us feel so special wherever we went. Tulia and her team should be highly commended for their work and friendly smiles. The food was outstanding and the rooms and whole property is very special. We would like to go back, maybe one day in the coming years.....
We were fortunate enough to visit Likuliku for the second time for earlier this month after almost 5 years. This place is truly magical - from the moment we arrived we were greeted with smiling faces and on a first name basis (by every single staff member who also knew it was our second visit). The facilities have not changed at all and the grounds, rooms etc are kept up to the highest standard for a tropical location. The food is ah-mazing - every single meal was mind blowingly good and the service is second to none.
We stayed in a beachfront bure close to the pool and restaurant (32) which was very convenient if we had to duck back to our room. The room was serviced daily as well as a turn-down service.
Likuliku holds a special place in our hearts and we will definitely visit again (and again and again).
We stayed here more or less 2 years after staying at Tokoriki. If you happen to be tossing up between the two you may find that helpful ( reviewed Jan 17). Likuliku is a great place as we have come to expect from these South Pacific resorts the service is enthusiastically delivered, always in a friendly manner, and nothing is too much trouble. The food was sometimes spectacular, sometimes, especially the Vegetarian options poor. Note, you have to specifically ask for the veggie menu. We stayed in an over water bure which lacked nothing other than a 15 minute walk each way to get to the centre. I am certain lifts would have been provided for some of the journey if we had asked. Water sports were all good and the servicing of our rooms, nothing short of perfection twice a day. The drinks are very expensive, some make your toes curl up, and here is the second reason why we rate this as a 4/5 . S Pelligrino bottle costs a small fortune. We had one with most meals, for the price we expected at least ice and a slice. Sometimes we got just that, sometimes we got ice delivered seperately and lime slices on a saucer so we can make our own drinks, sometimes more often than not we were not offered any and had to ask. The point is that there ought to be some consistency when you are paying such an inflated price. Same story with bread rolls, I could go on, and really it's nit picking but we try to write these thinking also about value for money. Overall we discussed the merits of Likuliku vs Tokoriki, little to choose between them frankly other the beach seems more accessible at LikuLiku the bar at Tokiroki lends itself to being much more sociable. If we were forced to choose one to go back to I think it would be Likuliku.
On a sublime ocean-front lagoon on Malolo - “the island of the resting sun” - this elegant resort, for adults only, excels in understated luxury. It looks like a traditional village, with spacious and comprehensively equipped bures, each with immediate access to the beach, and to the fitness centre, health spa, swimming pools, and the boutique. Available activities include snorkelling, windsurfing, kayaking, and local island cruises.
The Fijiana Restaurant serves delicious, attractively presented meals, in generous portions. Seafood and tropical fruits are sensational! Listening to music and enjoying a sundown potation in the Masima Bar is a tranquil end to the day.
Under the astute direction of GGM Steve Anstey, LikuLiku has developed an impressive “eco-pedigree.” Its breeding program for the Fiji Crested Iguana is reestablishing that endangered species. A similar leading edge environmental initiative is the tropical dry forest restoration program.
Inspired by the discerning leadership of resort manager, Tulia Seru, staff service is impeccable. Not only welcoming, responsive and efficient, but always smiling and addressing guests by name. Wow!
My husband and I planned a whirlwind honeymoon, traveling to three major cities in Australia in 2 weeks and then spending almost a week in Fiji at Liku Liku. I can’t even express how perfect our over-water bure experience at Liku Liku was - it’s the definition of luxury and paradise. We snorkled off of our own private deck twice a day, fully utilized the incredible outdoor space and perfect indoor space. The resort itself is unparalleled - from the food to the spa to the activities to the staff (some of the most welcoming, lovely people we’ve ever met), we never wanted to leave! This resort is an absolute treasure and I’m hoping we’ll be able to come back in a few years for an anniversary :)
