Plantation Island Resort- Surf Cloudbreak, Restaurants, Wilkes

From $375FJD per room (2 Adults 2 Kids under 16)

Plantation Island Resort Fiji is one of the best, if not the best, place in the world to surf world class waves and take the family along for the trip! I took my 8 year old son with me to plantation and he had the time of his life and i surfed some of the best waves of my life! Plantation has a great kids club with activities almost all day and every evening, and if i needed to leave early to surf cloudbreak or whatever wave the conditions suited for the day, reception arranged a staff member to look after him and take him to breakfast before kids club until i arrived back from my morning surf. I can not recommend this place highly enough for families or single surfers with kids or those just wanting a resort atmosphere with access to the world class waves nearby.

Nestled on the 553 acre island of Malolo LaiLai, part of the Mamanuca Group of islands Plantation is just 16km offshore west of Nadi International Airport.
Plantation Island Resort Fiji utilises 23 acres of tropical landscaped gardens and coconut palms and has 7km of white sandy beaches, part of which fronts the beautiful sheltered lagoon. You’ll find us just 10 minutes by air from Nadi International Airport.

Malolo LaiLai is a freehold island, and was operated as a copra plantation by the Wong Ket family until 1966 at which time it was acquired by three partners who developed it for both a tourist destination as well as for their own use.

Plantation Island can offer you total relaxation or a wide range of leisure activities and cultural excursions. Relax around our many pools or swim in the beautiful blue water lagoon, take part in our featured activities or sip a cocktail at one of our many bars while you watch the sunset and take all the time you need to discover the magic of Plantation Island Resort.

Plantation Island is a place for everyone, romantic couples of all ages, families with children, and groups.

From the very first moment you arrive at Plantation Island you will experience the warmth and friendliness of our staff who will make your holiday one of the most memorable you will ever experience.
