Independent review for Funky Fish Resort in the Mamanuca Islands of Fiji

funky fish resort hotel location picture

Funky Fish Resort Fiji is a lively Beach Front property on Malolo Island, the largest island of the Mamanuca Islands. Built upon a hillside, the main restaurant and bar offers lovely views of the beach and bungalows below. There's a reasonable beach although the lagoon is too shallow for swimming - at low tide you can wade into the lagoon ankle deep for over 300 metres - but a swimming pool makes up for this. Altogether, this is a fun resort with clean but basic accommodation and makes a pleasant base for exploring the island and surrounding reefs.

Recommended For:
  • Backpackers & Couples
  • Tranquil Views from Hilltop Restaurant
  • Great Hill Walks & Boat trips to Surf break
