We choose Vomo because it is a family place and we all love to dive - and the diving was fantastic. Even the snorkeling was incredible. Accommodations are luxury without being over the top. The dining was better than expected and our family voted it as "great". From my picky 12 year old to my 19 year old - everyone enjoyed and Vomo did a nice 'special' dinner on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Best is the range of activities. Water sports of all types and excursions to Little Vomo and beyond as well as the fun workout of climbing Mt. Vomo or circumnavigating the island at low tide. The adult pool was under construction when we were there and that will be a great addition for those who want some away time. Having said that, we always had plenty of 'space' with beach to ourselves. We will visit again for sure. read less - 31/01/19

Everything in this hotel is absolutely spot on! From the incredible waters to the amazing staff. I can’t rave on enough about the staff on this beautiful island. They take the time and effort to get to know you on a personal level, and it just makes for such a wonderful experience. The food on this island is some of the best we’ve ever had. We looked forward to every single meal and often ended up lounging around unable to move because we’d overeaten. Had a private fishing trip with Zak, caught some incredible fish which was then cooked up for us for our lunch. The rooms are beautiful, very spacious and stunning bathrooms. The waters are beautiful with some great snorkelling just off the shore. My kids didn’t want to leave the kids club! It was huge with so much available for kids to do. The nannies were amazing especially Vuli who looked after our kids. Service is unbelievable. Anything you ask is provided to you and there’s no such thing as ‘Fiji time’. The hotel is adequately staffed which is a breath of fresh air! My 4 year old and I were crying as we left. I will be back here without a doubt! read less - 29/01/19

We stayed at The Residence villa and were SO spoiled with attention and the fabulous accommodation and setting of the place . It has its own beautiful pool but the divine beach is a few steps away too. It’s totally private and we also had the smiling and helpful Vani who was our “butler “ but really became like one of our family group for the trip . Whilst we were snorkeling every morning on the INCREDIBLE morning snorkeling trips , she would stay with mum and keep her company . Mum cried when leaving her and I think Vani was a bit teary too !
From the welcome drinks and song to the good bye , nothing was too much trouble and everything done with a smile ! The staff were so terrific. The setting ideal for a “ do nothing much” laze around Island holiday with good food !
The evening drinks in the adult only sunset bar was a high light too.
Would definitely return for some R & R and snorkeling in the future.
My only comment is that I would have liked a few more environmental touches like not seeing the aircon on all the time etc .. read less - 24/12/18

It’s still just as amazing as always, the island itself being absolute paradise. It’s so beautiful, peaceful, and the water is crystal clear.
It was so nice to see the same familiar faces working there- a true testament to the way Vomo looks after their staff.
Standouts this trip: the spa, it’s still the best massage I’ve ever had.
The Sunday sessions at the rocks- many of the guests had sore heads on Monday, lots of fun and a great way to meet & mingle with other guests.
Spice night at the rocks- delicious.
Day trip to little Vomo, we did this with the kids and loved having an island to ourself for the day.
The staff- they are amazing and genuine. Shout out to Tim & Jason- you are superstars.
I love the small island vibe, and that by the end of the week I’d made so many new friends. It was also lovely to see other guests by coincidence that we had met on previous visits to the island.
Looking forward to our next visit. read less - 28/05/22

The staff are fantastic and friendly and attentive. Bulllla.
Our waiter and friend Nicky was so accommodating, professional, kind and great to be with. The island is magnificent you can do as little or as much as you wish. we climbed mt vomo, walked the island, snorkelled, swam in our pool, the food was fantastic and generous. I could not fault anything on this island it was amazing and I did not want to go home. shout out to Karen Marvall and Vani for their patience as this trip was booked originally in 2020 and we arrived april 2022.

If your idea of a dream holiday, is idyllic white sand beaches, great pools, fantastic food, and beautiful well appointed 5-star bures, then Vomo will suit you well. The friendly helpful staff make this resort even better. The new Reefside adult only side adds a new dynamic, but the whole resort is fantastic whether you have come with the family or not.
The cost included meals are the best we have encountered in the Pacific. First rate food that would not be out of place in the better restaurants of AUCKLAND.
Definitely worth splashing out for the helicopter transfer from Nadi airport. read less - 30/10/19

The... read morePros: Our hillside room had a great view of the ocean and Little Vomo off to the side. The room was spacious and beautifully appointed. The patio was roomy with a luxurious 2 person couch with many pillows and when I requested another lounge chair as we were 3 people they brought it up the hill for me. Their service was always fantastic and we were treated like we were very special guest. Every person was cheerful and smiling and would do what they could to make us happy. We arrived before 10 am and they invited us to have a full breakfast while we waited for our room to be made ready. The food was plentiful and mostly fabulous. The breakfasts were superb with a cold room buffet that varied a little and included cold cuts such as prosciutto and smoked salmon (lox) and assorted nuts /dried fruits to mix as you please including macadamia nuts (which looked like peanuts). You also could order from a breakfast menu which had many tasty choices. Coffee service is very slow but is very good made from a restaurant espresso machine. Every lunch and dinner had a choice of appetizer, a choice of main, and a choice of dessert. The dessert choices always included a "pastry" and a flavor of ice cream and of sorbet. The coconut sorbet was the creamiest, fluffiest, tastiest "ice cream" ever. The Wednesday cold room all you could eat desserts was a nice surprise though if we had been told about it in advance we would have had a lighter lunch to better enjoy the large selection of desserts, many of which had not been on the menu. There I tried the rainbow colored (kids?) pound cake which was very buttery and moist. Lunch was greatly enhanced by the surroundings -- eating on the sand next to the beautiful aquamarine and turquoise ocean under the shade of palm trees was fabulous. The Fiji night dinner was very good. All meals included free soft drinks and we could get soft drinks from the bar any time. The trip to Little Vomo is well worth doing. You have a private island for a few hours with linen covered eating table to have the picnic lunch, cushioned chaise lounge chairs and there is even a secluded "tree house" with cushioned chaise lounge chairs. The daily snorkel trips are great as is snorkeling right from the beach. The Rocks bar is great although it should have open hours through sunset every night. Walking back on the path lit by tiki torches is fun and much better than the minivan which they always offered.
Food that was spicy though not marked as spicy on the menu such as Thai style dishes.
Not knowing the menu until the meal. It would have been nice if they posted the lunch and dinner menu for the day at breakfast time so people who are pickier eaters could plan their food for the day.
When arriving by ferry or seaplane you have to step from the transfer boat into the shallow water. There is no pier. It would be nice if they at least had a gangplank that could be put from the bow of the transfer boat to dry sand for arrivals to walk across who may not have dressed for getting their feet/lower legs wet.
Overall Vomo is my favorite South Pacific island over others (Moorea, Bora Bora, Tikehau, Roratonga, Autitauki) that I have been to. read less - 22/08/19

Having done all of the research and read all the reviews, Vomo was by far my #1 choice as they have a house reef and the island was big enough so that there would be many different activities to choose from.
This resort does not disappoint. It is an 10 minute helicopter ride to Vomo but what a beautiful trip it is. The pilot circled the island for us before he landed so that we could see it from the air.
We stayed in a beachfront bure which are very well furnished, luxurious and spacious. You have your own beachfront hammock and also beach loungers both on your deck and on the beach so there are plenty of places to relax and read. From our loungers, we watched bait balls (big schools of fish) each twilight being chased by larger fish and small reef sharks and dive bombed by herons - it was an exhilarating sight we looked forward to.
Ocean Play was great. The staff were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, accommodating and also had great senses of humour. We loved the activities as much as we loved spending time with them. The snorkelling trips each day by boat were free and gorgeous. The reefs around the island have abundant sea life and corals. Note that the snorkelling from shore on both Eastern and Yasawa Beaches were equally as amazing. We dived - which we loved - and also kayaked to Vomo Lai Lai - the adjoining island, passing a turtle on the way.
The adults pool was a stand-out. Amazing loungers of all shapes and sizes and designs, and so many. The food is served at the pool and in the restaurant, and so are the drinks. It is quiet and even though the resort was full, it felt empty with plenty of quiet places all to yourself.
The walk to the top of Mount Vomo gets your heart racing but is well worth it to see the view, as is the walk around the island.
We loved it - can you tell?
Special thanks to Tim, the manager, who made our trip very special, and to Tila, the waitress, who always knew the best dish to order and looked after us at each meal. The staff are great, friendly, kind and courteous. They really add to the specialness of this resort. read less - 22/05/22

We spent a week on Vomo for our honeymoon, staying in a hillside villa. The amenities were fantastic - the villa was beautiful, resort grounds extremely well-kept, and dining areas organized and clean.
The island itself would be difficult to beat. It is completely surrounded by beautiful coral. Daily (complimentary) snorkeling excursions explore all the beautiful coral around the island. If you are out-doorsy, take a hike up Mount Vomo, but do this early in the morning or late in the evening so you aren't exposed by the midday sun.
The food, OH the food. It was phenomenal. Every meal offers a starter, entree, and dessert, and we were blown away by almost everything we ate there. Fresh juices and fresh-caught seafood were in almost every meal. We literally watched the staff bring in fish they caught in the morning for meals that day. Unreal!
One of the major highlights was the staff. Every person was so friendly and welcoming. They would literally do anything we asked (and some things we didn't ask) to make our experience unforgettable. Like I said earlier, we truly felt like royalty based on the excellent service. Be sure to get to know the staff members. They are great people, and have so much to share about Fiji and Vomo both.
Finally, the "little things" and attention to detail were really what made Vomo "home". From the nightly turndown service, to every staffmember greeting guests with a hearty "bula", to the cold minted towels at meals on a hot day, to bug spray in the rooms and at the bars, the little things are really what made this island feel like home in our week there.
A few "pro tips":
- If staying in a hillside villa, request one high up on the hill. The walk is difficult to get up there, but the view is SO worth it.
- Grab lunch on the beach - kick off your shoes and enjoy the sand between your toes as you eat!
- Don't miss sunset at the Rocks Bar!
- We took the boat from Port both to & from the island. The boat to the island wasn't bad, but we recommend taking a plane or helicopter back to the airport. It just saves on travel time and keeps you out of the elements at the start of a long journey home.
We really felt like we were leaving our 2nd home when we left Vomo. Thank you & vinaka for such a great week there! read less - 17/11/18
