Overview

A private island refuge in the South Pacific, Laucala unites dramatic rain forest-laced landscapes and white sandy beaches with unparalleled levels of luxury and privacy. No expense has been spared at the exclusive tropical hideaway, where 25 Fijian-styled villas are set amid coconut plantations, beside deserted beaches and atop the island’s volcanic mountains, overlooking fertile coral reefs and endless jungle. Style and sustainability go hand in hand throughout, from the natural fibers and woods used in design to the wild orchids harvested in gardens and organic produce grown on island farms. Set over 1,400 hectares, Laucala epitomizes the seclusion and graceful hospitality for which the Fijian archipelago is famed.

A collection of five restaurants and bars offers everything from beach side barbecues to fine dining, with many of the buildings inspired by nature. Plantation House occupies an airy replica colonial mansion, the fine-dining and a bar complemented by a thoughtfully-selected premium wine list; alfresco meals are available at Seagrass Lounge and Restaurant, specializing in Asian and Fijian favorites; the Beach Bar is all about casual barbecues beside the water; share plates of Mediterranean-style fare are served at the Pool Bar, beside Laucala's 2.000-square-meter lagoon-style swimming pool; and the Rock Lounge features open-air dining above Seagrass Bay, with finger food and cocktails the order of the day. Laucala also offers dining by design, which means customized menus in private dining locations – amid the jungle, along a jetty, in your villa.

Laucala's diversions range from relaxing to adventurous. A wide variety of water sports introduce guests to Fi'i’s azure oceans, while rain forest walking tours, golf, farm visits, and horseback riding are exhilarating ways to explore the island. The island's Water Sports Center is home to a fleet of 14 boats, including the Riviera Open Flybridge for game fishing as well as Dragon sailboats and traditional Fijian outriggers, ideal for sunset cruises or archipelago discovery. From here, windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking, and jet-skis are also available. Laucala offers snorkeling equipment and PADI certified Dive Center.

Few spa experiences rival that at Laucala, where traditional Fijian therapies, organic amenities and serene settings go hand in hand. Four treatment villas – each with an outdoor tub, relaxation room and changing room – and two wet rooms with Vichy showers and steam facilities sit amid water features and tall palm trees, complemented by a beauty salon, pedicure and manicure rooms and the Spa Garden.
