Eco-minded all-villa paradise on a remote Fijian island, with its own beachfront infinity pool, holistic spa, and breakfast included
Not a single lava stone was left unturned when this bucket-list worthy Malolo Island beachfront community opened for business in 2018. For starters, there’s a full-service marina, an onsite ice cream hut that hands out complimentary round-the-clock scoops, a tennis court, and an outdoor theater surrounded by swaying palms. Each of the 34 extravagant thatched-roof villas is furnished with its own plunge pool, fully-equipped kitchen, and sun-speckled deck with views of nearby Vunabaka Bay. The adventure menu is as robust as the relaxation options here: choose from a PADI course, partake in the resort’s ongoing coral restoration project (guests can help plant a portion of the reef), engage in treetop yoga, or simply drift away on a sunset sail all while being serenaded by local acoustic musicians. The ultimate unwind awaits at the coconut-scented spa, where over-the-top accouterments like an alchemy bar (ideal for whipping up your own wellness potions) and bespoke holistic treatments, fueled with tropical fruit from the resort’s own garden, take seaside idyll to new heights.
In the Area
As part of the Mamanuca Island chain, a volcanic archipelago to the west of Fiji’s main city, Nadi, Malolo Island is situated 15 miles from the country’s international airport (for a fee, the resort can arrange for private minivan, speedboat or helicopter transfers). A clutch of world-famous surfing spots, including Cloudbreak, known for its particularly gargantuan swells, are within easy reach, while the resort can also facilitate a day of island hopping, complete with a picnic lunch, in addition to a visit to the nearby village of Solevu to browse through indigenous arts and crafts.
How to Get There
We absolutely loved our short stay at Six Senses Fiji and would certainly recommend this property to others. It really is the definition of 'bare foot luxury'.
Our ocean front villa was clean, comfortable and luxurious and fitted out with everything to make a stay homely and romantic: large private plunge pool, indoor and out door showers, an outdoor oversized bathtub, double vanity, king sized four poster bed with views of the ocean, his and hers wardrobes, safe, lounge area, impressive mini bar along with wine fridge and tea and coffee making facilities (nespresso). For those who need to stay connected there is a TV and super fast wifi. No old fashioned light switches in this room - everything from lights, to blinds to air con and fan at the press of a button. Impressive.
Also impressive is the Resort's commitment (wherever possible) to locally sourced produce, much of which comes from the Resort's very own nursery, herb gardens and orchards. They even have their own chickens (Cluckingham Palace!) and Bee Hives. Breakfast was a particular highlight - the creativity of the Six Senses breakfast has set a new benchmark.
There is so much to do you'd never get bored: world class surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling all within easy access. Hiking trails, yoga, spa, gym, library and so the list would go on. We wished we could have stayed longer to sample everything on offer.
Thank you to Frans and Fiona and the rest of the team. We had a great time!
I spent two days at Six Senses Fiji for my friends birthday. The staff here are incredible. The Resort Manager Frans is a long-time Six Senses expert and is transforming the team and the resort. He is extremely professional and impressive. The head of F&B is also a stand out team member. He served us each night and took care of everything we needed - including surprising us with a thoughtful and stunning birthday meal together with cake and wine. The team made the trip. Thank you to Frans, Laurence and the rest of the team.
Six senses Fiji was a true blessing to close our honeymoon. Besides the paradise that is fiji, the resort is built in such a way that matches all the beauty surrounding. The true gem of this resort are its employees. Everyone knew our names from day one and were always effortless in meeting our requests.
A special thank you and appraisal to our GEM, Lusia, who always made sure everything in our stay was perfect, and to Lawrence (one of the Managers), who was a true delight to chat with, always ensuring we were having the best experience in six senses.
