Malolo Island

The history of Fiji begins about 1500 B.C. with a landing of giant war canoes of the prehistoric Lapita people. Fijian legend speaks that when the early Fijians arrived, they settled on the beaches of Viseisei, about 13km (8 miles) from Nadi Airport on the big island Viti Levu. These early settlers, after working the rich land and bountiful seas, would cast their eyes to the west. Each afternoon, the sun would always set behind Malolo Island. From a distance, it appeared as if the sun was resting. The Fijians believe that Malolo was an island especially created by the gods where the sun would come and rest after a day of wandering. From that time Fijians branched out from Viseisei to occupy over half of our 300 beautiful islands in the group. But every Fijian, irrespective of what island they hailed from….. knows that at the end of the day, irrespective of wherever you are in Fiji, the sun will always come to rest on Malolo Island. Ancient expressions such as “All roads lead to Rome” have entered our everyday English language. For the Fijians, the expression “na siga e dromu i Malolo” has also become part of everyday Fijian sayings. It means “Malolo is where the sun comes to rest”. Today, Malolo Island Resort continues in the spirit of this wonderful legend. The sun in our logo reminds us of the island's special significance in Fijian mythology. A place of rest. A place of peaceful seclusion. And like the sun, we hope that you also will make our island a place where you too can come and rest and bask in total peace and serenity. The island rejuvenates the elements and we know will do the same for you.
