Family fun on Castaway Island
Castaway Island, also known as Qalito, continues to be one of Fiji's top destinations for family fun. Soft sandy beaches slipping into the warm waters of the South Pacific beckon travellers of all ages, inviting sand castles, splashing and snorkelling. The family appeal is bolstered by the Castaway Island Resort, which is the only accommodation on the island.
This resort offers a number of family-friendly services that allow both parents and children to make the most of their time on the island. This includes the Kids Club, which provides supervised activities for ages three and up to keep children entertained as parents relax and rejuvenate. Family-friendly dining is also available.
Romance on Castaway Island
The seclusion and tropical surrounds of Castaway Island make it a fantastic destination for romance. It's a chance to escape the toils of daily life and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of lush rainforest and seemingly endless ocean views. Romance can certainly be found at the Castaway Island resort, providing a private escape with 4-star amenities.
The hotel spans over 70 hectares with individual bures promoting a sense of space and privacy for all guests. There is also an onsite spa and Waters Edge restaurant for romantic meals looking over the ocean. The 'quiet' pool caters to adults with a swim-up bar, while tennis courts and walking tracks offer couple-friendly activities.
Island hopping through the Mamanucas
It may be hard to peel yourself away from the heavenly seclusion of Castaway Island, but it just so happens that there are a few other islands nearby. The resort offers day trips on one of their speedboats (weather permitting) that will take you around the Mamanuca Islands, allowing you to discover the beauty of this region.
You may want to consider splitting your time between the islands, which is entirely possible thanks to a handful of resorts spread across these destinations. Malolo Island is home to the premium, 5-star Likuliku Lagoon Resort. This high-end destination is famous for its overwater bungalows. The Lomani Island Resort is an adults-only hotel on Malolo Lailai Island with 4-star service and just 12 available rooms.
