Malog Island Resort, at Peskarus on Uluveo island, has been open for several years now. The owner/manager Kalo Nathaniel has worked on cruise ships and dive boats and knows how to look after people. He also has some secret dive sites that the commercial operators don't know about, including a WWII plane wreck. The nearby Lovhvari Marine Conservation Area is good for snorkelling.

Very accomadating and patient hosts who really put themselves out to please you. Really nice family. Kalo arranges everything, Nina cooks great and the kids are quiet, intelligent and helpful. Amazing time, and would return.

I spent a week with Kalo and Nina in July 2008. It was a memorable experience! The bungalows are comfortable and are in the village so you get to see the daily activities. It's an easy walk around the island, everyone is happy to talk with you. The church service was amazing. The food was wonderful, 3 cooked meals daily and accom for 4000 vatu for one person, probably cheaper for 2 people. No cars, no police, no locks on the door but I felt very safe. See video clips of the bungalows, Smol Nambas dance by the men of the village and other clips of the Maskelynes under the name southpacific2u on YouTube. If you do go to the Maskelynes, be wary of Jimmy who lives near the white sand beach on the other side of the spit, he's a little money hungry. Everyone else was friendly, honest and welcoming.

I was totally charmed by the host, Kalo, and his family. I was there four days in 2004, and made a special trip back just to say hello in 2006. The snorkeling was fantastic, the area pristine. The food was fresh and delicious. But it was the lack of other tourists and the charm of the hosts that really did it for me.

Expensive! 4850 per night & many in village asking for money, cigarettes etc frequently. Admittedly, food was excellent & accomodation ok. Go to Pellonk where you wont be viewed as *only* a source of funds!! That had been our intention, but we got 'hijacked' ...
