Likuliku Lagoon Resort in Fiji

Part of the small Fiji-based Ahura Resorts company, the Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a 5-star hotel located on a small private island, and is ideally set up for honeymoons and other romantic getaways. There are 10 overwater bungalows (called overwater bures at the resort itself) along with 35 beachfront and garden bungalows.

The overwater bungalows as well as the other rooms are all large and very well appointed, using local materials and themes throughout, so the resort has a distinctive Polynesian feeling that isn’t present at some of the larger chain resorts. The food in particular gets rave reviews from previous guests, and the dining and lounge facilities are perfectly suited to romantic couples.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Likuliku Lagoon Resort tend to be glowing, as you’d expect from an expensive 5-star resort. Most guests stay in the non-overwater rooms, since there are more of them, and those who stay in the overwater bungalows do tend to be very happy and impressed.

The food in particular gets great reviews, as does the service from the staff. It’s also pointed out that this resort is definitely best suited to honeymoons and other romantic holidays for couples, as the facilities are only for two guests per room, and there are virtually no family activities available beyond swimming and snorkeling.

Getting there

To reach the Likuliku Lagoon Resort you need to fly to the main Nadi International Airport in Fiji, and then take a water taxi, catamaran, speed boat, sea plane, or helicopter to the island where the resort sits.
