Opulent Fiji stays on the horizon
Like many resorts in Fiji, Malolo and Likuliku were forced to close their doors when Fiji’s borders shut in March 2020 due to the Covid pandemic. During that time, all 300 staff – except for an engineering and essential services team, were stood down whilst Fiji and the world waited out Covid.
Ahura Resorts, the Fijian family company that owns and operates Malolo and Likuliku, has remained connected to its family of staff over this time including deploying a food voucher distribution program every quarter to help the staff and their families replenish staple grocery items.
Malolo Island Resort and Likuliku Lagoon Resort
But the wait is now over – Malolo Island Resort will reopen to international guests on 20 December 2021, followed by Likuliku Lagoon Resort on 1st February 2022.
Fijian owner and Managing Director Mr. Tony Whitton said, “We have waited and worked hard towards this day for a long time. There are probably not enough words to explain the feelings of excitement, relief, and joy we have, that we can finally get our staff back to work and once again, welcome our valued guests to our shores.
“Both resorts are recording high levels of enquiries and bookings from all over the world and our family of staff can’t wait to share our beautiful island and its pristine surroundings again. We know our guests will want to rest, reconnect and find inspiration after such a long wait. And I can tell you, we are ready to welcome them back!”
Conde Nast Annual Readers Choice Awards
Malolo Island and Likuliku Lagoon are both multi-award-winning resorts, including receiving consecutive accolades in the World Travel Awards with Malolo being named 2019 and 2020 “Oceania’s Leading Beach Resort”. Likuliku has featured four times in the Conde Nast Annual Readers Choice Awards as one of the top resorts in Australia & the South Pacific including gaining the No.2 spot in the 2020 awards. Both resorts have also won their own Fiji Excellence in Tourism award categories many times over the years.
