This post is part of a series from my recent trip to Fiji. Click here for the introductory post.
AT LAUCALA / Well, this place is outrageous, in a very good way. There is absolutely nothing you can’t find or do here. And you can escape customs in Nadi as Laucala has the only 24/7 customs facility in the country outside of that international airport.
One arrives on their private jet from Nadi, enjoying a Red Bull on the way. After all, the resort is built by Mr RB himself. You’re met with a drink and a Land Rover (kind of like Jurassic Park but better) and driven to the center of the resort. From there you get your private golf cart to get to your villa and so that you can discover the island
You’ll need a week to discover the place. Unlike the other resorts this island is big, the villas are huge, and they’re spread out. And there are several dining establishments and bars — all for just 25 villas. The island is, if I remember, about 85% self-sustaining, and you can tour their gardens and farm.
The space of the island and the openness of the villas are really what makes it. And according to a favorite client, the lobster is to die for. You’ll have to look at the pictures, and then imagine an amazing level of hospitality and that will give you an idea.
