Laucala Island Resort


The private island resort of Laucala takes you back to nature in paradise. Self-sufficiency and independence are the integral philosophy here, from the use of home-grown ingredients to caring for its own livestock and vegetation.

Twenty-five spacious bures (Fijian for the house) dot the resort grounds which are all built out of indigenous materials. Thatched roofs and handcrafted guest products are some of the main features, alongside exclusively designed interiors, a private pool, and indoor and outdoor stone tubs.

The resort offers impressive culinary choices from elegant fine dining at the Plantation House to casual food at the Pool Bar. End your day with a cocktail at the Rock Lounge or the Beach Bar with illuminated Tiki torches along the sand.

Spend a day at Laucala Spa Centre or explore the many islets around the lagoon. Play a round of golf on the championship course designed by David McLay Kidd, go fishing, and enjoy endless water sports.

Location & Getting There
The island resort is located on the northeastern coast of Taveuni, a 45-minute private flight from Nadi International Airport on the main island, Viti Levu.

Each of Laucala's 25 villas offers unparalleled exclusivity and privacy, and are accompanied by a buggy for guests to explore the resort at their leisure. The Hilltop Estate offers captivating panoramas from the opulent green hills of Laucala Island as well as special services like a private cook, chauffeur, and nanny. The Overwater Residence has a spacious terrace that floats over the emerald-green lagoon, complete with a private pool carved directly into the rocks of the shore. The Peninsula Residence consists of luxurious mansions connected by rope bridges that offer spectacular views of the surrounding lush greenery, with each mansion featuring a private beach and jetty.

Plateau Villas are perched on Nawi Mountain, offering exclusive seclusion and unforgettable sea views. Seagrass Villas lie along Sea Grass Bay's coastline, perfect for sophisticated nature lovers.

Guests can try out water sports at the resort's very own water center including windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking, jetskiing, and game fishing, while rainforest walking tours, golf, farm visits, and horseback riding are exhilarating ways to explore the island. Other activities include quad and mountain biking, hiking, or guided walking tours to nearby Fijian cultural villages. Laucala Island is also the world's first resort to include an hour-long ride in its own submarine, where guests are able to explore the inner reef and marine fauna of the island 40 to 60 feet into the sea.

The Kids Club offers educational and fun activities from toddlers to 14-year-olds, including unique experiences like soap making lessons in the spa or a day in the kitchen with the chefs.

Why we recommend Laucala Island Resort

Laucala is a self-sustaining paradise producing its own livestock and vegetables, and building most of its products and structures from the island's resources. Just 25 villas dot the resort, creating an intimate desert isle feel. The lagoon pool meshes with the lap pool and offers organic-shaped islands for sunbathing. The range of activities here is also impressive, from going on a unique submarine ride to riding on the beaches on horseback.
