Laucala Island Resort
“Bau nanuma na nodatou Lasa” “Beautiful moments that last for eternity.” It is an expression out of an old Fijian folksong, which has become one of the core mottos of Laucala Island. If you are searching for a lost paradise, you can’t do better than follow your dreams. For those who do, islands symbolize the perfect counterbalance or escape for your holiday.
The team would like to welcome you to Laucala Island in the South Sea archipelago of Fiji. Laucala Island is a perfect island escape for those who seek the total luxury of privacy and space, relaxing ambiance, enjoying culinary delicacies, yet being sportive active. Anything is possible on Laucala – playing a round of golf, cycling the island, game fishing, diving or sailing the turquoise waters, or being pampered in the spa.
Only 25 villas are widely spread on the northern tip of the island, each with its own swimming pool, leaving ample space giving the most privacy you can imagine. Seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living creates an inspiringly relaxed, yet luxurious atmosphere. Not only are they a resort – they set a high value in taking a holistic approach of self-sustainability in growing all fruits and vegetables on the own farms; breeding poultry and cattle, making the own honey and bottling the purest volcanic mineral water, baking the own breads – providing the best quality of produce possible for the restaurants. They offer their guests ‘cuisine à la Laucala’ in four different restaurants beginning from degustation dinners in the colonial Plantation House Restaurant, Asian influenced dining in the Seagrass Lounge’s treetops, or barbeques at the beach. Mountain sides, cliff tops, white sandy beaches, and turquoise waters – this awaits you on Laucala. Moce Mada, as they say…
The art of living in harmony with nature without renouncing modern comfort’s conveniences finds its highest expression. All the villas captivate visitors with their clear commitment to the natural environment and Fijian traditions. Their remarkable combination of vast space, exclusively designed interiors, natural materials, and luxurious comfort creates wonderfully inspiring surroundings for sophisticated travelers. The twenty-five villas are spread out in unique locations, differing quite a bit yet providing varying atmospheres. Some are set in the former coconut plantation, some the Seagrass Bay and on the Nawi Hill. The characteristic villa Wai is built on stilts in the lagoon, and the Peninsula villa crowns the tip of the peninsula island.
Senses Romantic candlelight dinners on the private beach, fine dining in the elegant Plantation House Restaurant, authentic special Asian delicacies in the Seagrass Restaurant, a spectacular Sundowner cocktail in the Rock Lounge, avant-garde finger food in the Pool Bar, or a barbecue in the Beach Bar that captures the tropical atmosphere. The wide variety of culinary rarities fulfills your every wish, as do the specially selected wines. The superbly stocked wine cellar and the wine lover’s treasure trove makes the connoisseur’s heart beat faster. Whether it’s that great Burgundy, that morning cup of coffee, a fragrant croissant, or the formal dinner, only the best is good enough for cuisine a la Laucala. Golf While this resort was being built. The main aim was to preserve its original character.
The architect of the 18-hole championship-standard golf course found this task a particular challenge. The result was a uniquely scenic golf course set against the luxuriant green mountains’ impressive scenery, carefully integrated into the old plantation area. Demanding fairways, well-developed greens, elaborately situated bunkers, unbelievable views out to the Pacific Ocean’s sparkling tides, and natural rock formations ensure that keen, experienced golfers and occasional players and beginners can also make it their game. This is all the more the case now that one of the most able professionals in the game offers the golfing guests advice and practical assistance.
