Malolo Island Resort

We are having the most relaxing time here in Malolo Island resort.

Our days are pretty much the same, get up, go for breakfast, and I must say that the breakfast here is the best one for a long, long time. They have everything from cheeses to omelette to cooked breakfast to cakes. Love it.

 Then we leave Henry at the kid’s club. And again, it is the best kids club we have had for a long time as well. They have very good staff there, they have a set schedule that they keep themselves to every day. Like yesterday was water day. So, they taught all the children how to snorkel. First, they showed them a video how to do it, then they took them all down to the pool and gave them masks, snorkels and floating vest if they needed it. Then they helped them do it. In the afternoon, they took them on a boat with a glass bottom to show them the reef and the corals.

Today it was about nature so they were going for a nature walk where they were going to show them all the plants that you can use for medicine. And then they would get a visit from an iguana.  In the afternoon, they were going to walk on the beach, see the mangroves and build sandcastles.

 I am very impressed how they operate the club. Henry loves it.

So, Henry is there in the morning then we normally have a little rest, play a game, sleep or watch something on his kindle or read a book.

After that we go to the pool which is normally filled with kids that Henry plays with.

In the evenings, there is a buffet dinner for Henry and we get food from a menu. The food has been very tasty. It is not five courses but the portions are massive!

Henry has managed to fall asleep in his dinners twice.

Last night he fell asleep at 6.20 and he doesn’t normally go to sleep until 8 here so we thought he was going to wake up super early, but he woke up at 6.40 this morning all happy. I can’t even remember last time Henry had a 12-hour sleep!

 Fiji is finished in a few days’ time and it’s onwards to New Zealand. At the moment, it is around 10-15 degrees there and it is the coldest we have had for 6 months! We might have to do an emergency shop of hats and gloves and maybe a few extra jumpers. We’ll see.

 Fiji has been lovely. It is so far away though from Europe so probably not something we would do again. All the Polynesian islands have been great for different reasons.  

Hawaii was amazing, wild beaches, great body boarding, surfing and playing on the beach.

Samoa was backwards in a good way. Not so built up and touristy, green and friendly.

Fiji has had the more upmarket resorts with great pools and food. It is also very friendly, good kid’s clubs, beautiful beaches and snorkelling.

Another sunset. Henry has been asking how the sun can be down here when it it up in England. So we have tried to explain that the earth is round and it goes around the sun the same time as it spins. It is very difficult, evry time you explain something another 100 questions are fired at you.
