Fiji family holidays – September / October 2019 school holidays.
Fiji fills up fast, particularly during the Australian school holidays. The demand for some resorts is so high you must book at least 12 months in advance. In fact, families who visit year after year know that they must call us when they return and book in for the next year.
For less organised travellers or a spur-of-the-moment school holiday break, this makes it difficult to secure accommodation in the highly sought after and best family resorts in Fiji.
For the coming July 2019 school holidays there is still limited availability at some resorts so don’t despair completely. Don’t worry, you won’t need to compromise as some of the better, less mainstream resorts do have availability. We will search until we find the resort that suits your specific needs.

Malolo Island Fiji is perfect for families
Malolo Island Fiji is one of our favourite family-friendly resorts.
If you had your heart set on one of our favourite resorts, Malolo Island Fiji, there is scattered availability during the July 2019 school holidays. Availability is better during the September / October holidays but it is filling up fast.
If you follow our blog posts and receive our weekly e-blasts you’ll know that Malolo is a favourite with the Fjii Island Holidays team. We have visited many times both for work and individually with our families.
There is so much about Malolo that is wonderful. There is ample space for families and adults alike so everyone gets to experience the well deserved holiday they crave.
Kids can take part in a Robinson Crusoe style adventure
The addition of an adventure to a secluded island is unique to Malolo Island Fiji.
Tia’s Treehouse, Malolo’s amazing Kids Club, is one of the best in the Mamanuca region and is open to children aged 4 years and up.
Since our last Malolo Island Fiji travel review, a visit to Mociu Island has been added to the Kids Club program. During their visit to Mociu Island, kids experience a Robinson Crusoe style adventure complete with beach games, hermit crab hunting, snorkelling and treasure hunts. So much fun! Mum and Dad can go too or elect to stay behind for a well-earned break.
During the rest of the week, the Kids Club runs a specialised seven-day programme that focuses on a different theme each day including marine and natural environments, Fijian culture, coconut trees, Fijian food and arts, Fijian language lessons, and even a visit to the local Fijian school. A highlight is a visit from Likuliku’s iguanas from their captive breeding and environmental program.
Another highlight (especially for proud parents) is when the kids perform their own Meke on a Saturday night – all dressed in traditional costume. This memory will stay with them forever and they will want to come back next year and do it all over again.

Teenagers aren’t overlooked either
Khail’s Club is a great place for older kids to relax and mingle.
Teenagers and older kids are not forgotten at Malolo. Khail’s Club is located in the main building and has been created with teenagers aged 13 and above in mind. It’s a great place for them to relax with their new friends for a game of table tennis or board game, watch the big screen satellite TV or take advantage of the WiFi and catch up on their social media. Best of all, the little ones won’t bother them.
Of course, Fiji is all about the outdoors and most teens will be found scattered throughout the resort either playing rugby on the beach, at the watersports bure utilising all sorts of equipment or heading out to snorkel.
It’s not all about the kids though…
The grown-ups can relax by the adults-only pool and relaxation area.
Whilst the kids are having a blast in the Treehouse, adults can relax by the stunning adults-only pool, enjoy some indulgence at Leilani’s Spa, or a private picnic on Mociu Island (obviously when the kids aren’t playing pirate games).
If you can drag the kids away from the Treehouse or Khail’s Club, a family kayak in the iridescent blue waters that surround the island is a must. Make sure you return in time to watch the sunset and enjoy a cocktail (or two) by the pool.
Accommodation to suit all budgets
Malolo’s accommodation ranges from Island Bures to Ocean View and Deluxe Ocean View Bures. The Deluxe Ocean View Bures provide more space for families with some accommodating up to two adults and three children. Larger families can be accommodated in one of the resort’s family bures. There are two adults-only Tadrai Bures located at the very far end of the beach.
