    Located at the edge of the resort’s luscious patch of tropical rainforest, the new “Leilani’s Spa” adds another level of elevated experiences to Malolo’s already comprehensive guest offerings.

    Malolo Island Resort is proudly 100 per cent Fijian family-owned – part of the Rosie Travel Group, so it was only fitting that matriarch Rosie Whitton herself was there to do the opening honours, along with resort owners Tony and Brigid Whitton, and Rosie’s daughter and namesake, Rose Whitton Cavu.

    With a true family connection, “Leilani’s Spa” is named after Rosie’s granddaughter whose name means “heavenly flower”.

    In tune with this theme, the spa treatments have been carefully designed to embrace the therapeutic benefits of the locally-made Pure Fiji spa products’ natural ingredients. The aim is to provide resort guests with a truly heavenly experience.

    Guests arrive at the stunning reception lounge. Here they will choose their favourite Pure Fiji aromatic oil for their treatment – from scents such as: Lime Blossom, Milk and Honey, Passion Flower, or the ubiquitous Coconut, to name a few.

    After which, they will be escorted to one of three, fully air-conditioned treatment rooms – which can be set for singles or couples, and all with floor-to-ceiling views out to the picturesque rainforest. Each room has its own private bathroom where guests change into a robe and then proceed to their secluded verandah for a relaxing foot massage. Each verandah also has a deep-set stone “jungle” bath for a soothing after-treatment soak.

    Leilani’s Spa offers everything from traditional Fijian massage, to the latest in stone therapies which originate from the Fijian island of Beqa. Hands and feet are not forgotten with a range of facials and restorative foot massages and scrubs. Couples can choose from four decadent treatments for that special romantic indulgence, or the “Ultimate Pamper” treatment list will leave guests in a blissful state of relaxation and rejuvenation.
