About Malolo Kids Club and Yanu Yanu Program

Filled with quintessential barefoot Fijian experiences, the Yanu Yanu program is run by the Malolo Kids Club, which is FREE for children aged 4-12 years. While parents take advantage of the island paradise, Yanu Yanu immerses kids in island life in a fun and culturally interactive way.

Yanu Yanu is a seven day program with each day focusing on a different theme. Marine Environment Day teaches kids about coral reef care with snorkelling lessons, fish identification and fish feeding, while the Coconut Tree Day teaches kids to husk and scrape coconuts and build and race traditional Niu boats.

Other activities include Fijian food preparation, traditional arts and crafts, herbal medicine and endangered species tours, traditional costume making and face painting and Fijian language lessons. Visits to the local island primary school and neighbouring islands are also organised.

Malolo Activities 560

In putting this program together, Malolo resort also consulted with the Mamanuca Environmental Society (MES) to ensure the accuracy, relevancy and importantly, the correct educational content of the environmental and ecological based activities.

During the course of the program, the children keep a daily pictorial and written diary of their activities for “show and tell” back home. There are also daily winners of competitions, offering prizes and certificates of participation for everyone.

In addition to the Yanu Yanu Program, Malolo has just completed a new Teenage Retreat. Filled with bean bags, music, table tennis and entertainment, it’s a place where older kids can comfortably hang out away from the crowd and meet new friends.
