Fiji’s premier private island retreat, Laucala Island, is set to reopen on 1 July, following a forced closure due to landscaping and decorative damage caused by Cyclone Winston earlier this year.
Over four months have been spent working tirelessly to restore Laucala back to its former state of beauty, and it is now ready to welcome guests with the warm Fijian hospitality that has earned her the reputation of being one of the best island retreats in the world.
The resort provides an exclusive tropical hideaway with 25 expansive Fijian-style villas set amongst coconut plantations, deserted white sandy beaches, rainforest landscapes and atop the island’s volcanic mountains.
Made from local timber, thatch and stone, each villa features traditional Fijian designs, private pools, indoor and outdoor showers and outside baths.
All-inclusive, there is a selection of five restaurants and bars, ranging from beachside barbecues to fine dining, with each restaurant offering a seasonal menu sourced from the island’s very own farm.
The spa provides traditional Fijian therapies and organic amenities plucked from the spa’s garden, in a serene, hilltop setting.
A wide range of sporting and cultural activities are available for guests of all ages, with the onsite water sports centre boasting 14 boats including a Super Falcon submarine, as well as a dive centre and equipment for windsurfing, kitesurfing, jet-skis, and much more. Guests can also explore the island on horseback or by mountain bike, and enjoy playing tennis or golf on the 18-hole championship course, while the Kids Club offers plenty of fun and educational experiences to keep younger guests happy.
