Crystal clear water, baby reef sharks swimming in the shallows, a separate private island for guests to get some extra peace and quiet and a cocktail bar set up just for sunsets.
It doesn’t get more picture-perfect than VOMO resort in Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands (which explains why it was chosen as the setting for Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition in 2017).
And let’s be honest, while relaxing and forgetting about the daily grind are what we’re all looking for from a holiday, it’s also nice to fill up your Instagram feed with Fomo-inducing photos.
Here’s why VOMO Island is Fiji’s most Instagrammable resort:
Nothing plane about VOMO
If you can, catch a seaplane or a chopper out to the island (VOMO has its own private helipad).
Not only does it save a bit of time, but the views are spectacular and you’re sure to snap some stunning shots as you fly over.
Also, as you’re coming into land you’ll appreciate just how amazing your snorkeling’s about to be.
Life’s a beach
Fortunately, you don’t have to be Kate Upton splashing around in the waves to get a good photo on VOMO’s beaches.
The sparkling white sands, turquoise water and blues skies are enough to make any picture pop.
Sometimes it’s as if you’re stranded on a desert island… just with your iPhone handy to take a quick snap.
As if one paradise island wasn’t enough
What’s better than spending time on a stunning island resort? Booking out the private island just a five minute speedboat ride away.
Resort guests can spend the afternoon on VOMO Island’s little sister VOMO Leilei with a picnic of your choice cooked up by the chef.
It’s the ultimate Insta-opportunity… and there’s nobody there to judge you spending half an hour getting that perfect shot.
Cocktails at sunset
VOMO Island is a very family friendly resort, but they’ve created one little corner that’s adults only… and what a corner it is.
The Rocks Bar opens for drinks each night between 6pm and 8pm as the sun goes down over VOMO Leilei.
Sipping cocktails, taking in the stunning sunset and snapping away – what a way to spend the evening.
Rise and shine… and climb
It might seem like the last thing you would want to do on a relaxing holiday, but hiking up to the summit of VOMO Island is well worth it.
It doesn’t take too long and delivers spectacular 360 degree views of the island when you reach the top.
Even better, you can scope out where you want to spend the rest of the day snorkeling when you’re up there.
The path to paradise
It’s a secret spot that perfectly sums up the feel of VOMO Island.
Beautiful blues blended with the green of the palm trees and a little path leading down to a pristine beach.
This particular spot is hidden down in front of villa 15 – so if you want to capture the ultimate Instagram shot on VOMO, this is where to get it.
