Discover Lomani Island Resort on Malolo Lailai Island, Fiji

Lomani means ‘love’ in Fijian. Lomani Island Resort is one of the most romantic places in the world and those who have the pleasure of visiting fall in love with the clear blue waters, the white sand beaches, and the caring team… but most of all they fall in love with the way it makes them feel. Celebrate love with us at Lomani Island Resort.


Lomani Island Resort lies on the second largest island in the Mamanuca group, Malolo Lailai island. The Nadroga Chief Ratu Kin sold the uninhabited island in 1872 for planting cotton. In November 1891 the island was sold and leased for 70 years to plant coconut palms and harvest copra, and in the early 1960’s the island was offered to three friends, including Reginald Raffe.

In 1969, Reg Raffe opened Plantation Village Resort, which has evolved into Plantation Island Resort, owned by the Raffe Hotels & Resorts group. Inspired by their father, in 2004 his children; Reardon, Barron, Jayson & Hannah, opened Lomani Island Resort, also owned by Raffe Hotels & Resorts.

Today, Lomani has 30 beautiful rooms, a restaurant, bar & swimming pool and offers a level of luxury, elegance, and privacy not found in today’s larger Fijian resorts.
