We had a great time at Funky Fish. The food and service was nice for the price. Staff was beyond our expectations. The room was very clean and beautiful. The beach in front is not very nice, but you can hike and find nice beaches around the island. The boats to surf breaks were on time everyday and you going... More

Where to start? The boat drivers were great and I was lucky that the other guests were good to hang out with. I will be coming back to Fiji to surf, just not at Funky Fish. I want to emphasise, that I don't mind basic accommodation, but keep it clean and maintained. A good example of this Ha'atafu in Tonga,... More

We had a quiet stay here. End of August is quieter for surfing so only 9 guests here. Everyone else was away surfing during the day so was very quiet. Could rent surfboards and pay to go surf but no lessons offered (not ideal place to learn I guess over coral). Snorkel for free out front but didn't see much.... More

Funky Fish s staff are really friendly, the place might look a bit pricey but it runs on generators ( i actually don't think the guy is doing any money out of it) which are really expensive. The island is not ideal for swimming but again all it takes is a small trip to the sanbars for a good deal... More

This is a great surf resort option in Fiji. Very friendly staff, enjoyed the food which was fresh and tasty, worth a walk up the hill to catch the fabulous view to the outer reef, and the staff are happy to organise a kava ceremony for you after dinner. You buy the kava at their reception area ($2 a bag),... More

Bula Elaira and thank you for your comprehensive feedback after 6 months. Please accept my sincere apology for us not meeting your expectations on your stay, however Funky fish does not advertise as a honeymooners resort even though we have had a number of couples in the past who have had a great experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small and friendly island resort with something for everyone! Situated on the majestic Fiji island of Malolo in the heart of the Mamanuca group just 15 kms from Fiji international airport. Central to the best Fiji surf breaks! The resort offers dramatic sunsets, is close to Fiji's great surf breaks, and delivers a very special experience - swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear waters on the surrounding coral reefs...unforgettable! Funky Fish also provides schedule and off schedule after-hours high-speed boat transfers, so that guests can be on the island the same day. We operate our own fast affordable transfer service from Anchorage private jetty (sister property). Guests travelling on our services from Vuda, Port Denarau or Nadi Airport will be greeted with shell leis and personally accompanied by our own staff to meet our marine transfer service. We look forward to welcoming you to Funky Fish Beach Resort. ... more   less
