5-Star Luxury Island Holiday for Couples and Families
Listening to the rustling palm leaves in the wind on a hammock, enjoying outstanding sushi at the infinity pool, snorkeling with friendly reef sharks and experiencing Fijian culture up close – our time at the luxurious Vomo was quite simply spectacular!
The Vomo Islands, with its two magnificent islands, Vomo and Vomo Lailai, are a remote South Pacific paradise with luxurious villas, excellent cuisine, fantastic snorkeling, and incredibly beautiful long white beaches around the island. The 255-hectare private island with 28 villas and four private residences offer absolute privacy and are surrounded by untouched and breathtakingly beautiful natural scenery.
Vomo is located in the Mamanuca Island group – a group of 20 palm-fringed islands surrounded by crystal clear emerald green waters. The region lies off the west coast of Viti Levu, the main island of Fiji, and is home to some of the most exclusive resorts in the world.
It started with a warm, personal touch by being greeted with a welcome song and a beautiful shell necklace.

The Rocks Pool & Bar – Adults only
The Rocks Bar on the western tip of the island has recently been renovated and extended to include the spectacular The Rocks Pool. A perfect oasis for adults only!
With cocktails, snacks, and impressive sunsets, it is a marvelous place to spend time on the designer daybeds, submerged pool seats and sun loungers with parasols. Once a week, there is also an adults-only dinner.
The service and food are truly exceptional! Manoa, the bartender, immediately stole our hearts.
At the foot of Mount Vomo, you will find the luxurious Resort Villas, Beachfront Villa, Haven, which are free-standing dwellings with no adjoining neighbors, and Retreat, which offer outdoor bathrooms. The villas are located directly on the beach and surrounded by beautiful coconut trees or secluded on the hillside, like the Hillside Villa, with plenty of privacy.
The luxurious design of the villas perfectly blends contemporary elegance with traditional Fijian elements.
The bathroom is ultra-stylishly designed, and with the free-standing bathtub and the brass elements, it reminded us a little bit of Africa.
The heart and soul of the resort are the cheerful staff. A friendly Bula with a beaming smile that touches your soul.
Another stunning pool is located directly at the restaurant.
The Reef Restaurant & Vudu Bar
The gourmet cuisine at Vomo offers a variety of fresh seafood and local Fijian and Indian dishes with a Pacific flair. The menu changes every day and is prepared with the best ingredients and herbs and vegetables from their own cultivation.
The Vudu Bar offers an extensive wine and cocktail list and is great for relaxing in the open air.
Traditional Fiji Lovo Buffet
An exceptional buffet is offered for Fijian Night – meat and vegetables are cooked the traditional Fijian way for 3 hours in an earth oven. Incredibly tasty and so tender!
Every Wednesday, there is a manager cocktail party on the beach, followed by a spectacular Meke show and Kava ceremony.
You get to experience the Fijian culture with their pure joy of life up close!
To witness such a traditional kava ceremony with the juice made from a pepper plant is memorable and mesmerizing.
The daily changing à-la-carte menus can be enjoyed in a romantic atmosphere under the starry skies at the pool.
If you are still not tired after dinner, you can listen to the delightful sounds of the staff and you might as well enjoy another Kava drink, after all, they play until the Kava is finished.
Every day at 11 am a snorkeling safari with guides departs from Ocean Play. If you would like to, you can even snorkel with sharks. We were lucky to see some Black Tip and White Tip Sharks up close. Spectacular!

Vomo is ideally situated en route to the beautiful Yasawa Islands. With the Yasawa Flyer from South Sea Cruises you can have a luxurious stopover in Vomo and then explore the other islands.
The Vomo Islands and the resort are majestically beautiful, and the natural landscape is extraordinary! The villas on the beach are very chic and offer an out of this world, luxurious atmosphere directly by the ocean. The Rocks Pool is stylish, and the view of the sea and Vomo Lailai Island is breathtaking! We especially loved the Fijian Night here. Spending the evening with the staff over a Kava and listening to their songs is quite unique. The snorkeling with the sharks was really spectacular and a lot of fun!
