- Don’t miss out on a day of deep relaxation at the full-service Daulomani Spa
- Pack plenty of comfortable clothes and sun protection - you’ll likely spend most of your days outdoors here!

Volivoli resort embraces the stunning natural world around it and aims to work in harmony with the local environment. During construction, much of the property was left undeveloped, showcasing the region’s lush forests and tropical plants and pristine beaches. The property uses organic produce and sustainably caught seafood whenever possible, reducing impact and supporting the local agricultural economy.
Diving is focused on caring for the nearby natural habitats and instilling respect in all the divers the resort trains and supports. The Volivoli team have also been integral in the drive to create a Marine Protected Area across the Bligh Water.
