To start planning your holiday to Likuliku Lagoon Resort


Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a haven of subtle luxury and the first and only resort in Fiji with over-water Bures. It is a unique and special place designed with integrity to cultural values, traditional designs and architecture with astounding views.

From the water it looks like an ancient village, so traditional is the style. The beating heart of the Resort is a magnificent building in the design of a Fijian canoe house. Surrounded by sprawling ceilings, hand-woven thatch and an exotic mix of natural materials and modern elements, Likuliku embodies the richness of an ancient culture with vibrant present-day touches.

A myriad of land and sea pursuits are yours for the taking. Snorkelling adventures await only steps from your Bure or you can be transported to secluded sites of unimaginable beauty, and no visit to Fiji is complete without experiencing the true depths of beauty when you dive. Specialist operators will personally escort you to some of the best sites in the world and you can even start your dive course online before you arrive.

Each of the Bures feature traditional architecture and materials using natural elements unique to the region. Elegant and stylish pieces surround you and you wonder at the detail in the woodwork, the "magi magi" designs, and the richness of the fabrics.

Laze by the spectacular horizon-edge pool or soak in one of the many mini-Jacuzzi areas in the pool and bush walks and nature trails lead to spectacular views of the Mamanuca Islands, alternatively, visit the local village and immerse yourself in true culture. Learn about the ancient sites of Likuliku including, the old village of Yaro and Potters Cave, Vatu Tagi "weeping rock", Vatu Tabu "sacred wishing rock" and Yadra Vula - a significant site of early Fijian habitation listed with the Fiji Museum.

The culinary experience at Likuliku presents exquisite flavours of the Pacific Rim delivered by new Executive Chef Ihaka Peri and his team. "Fijiana" Restaurant is the centrepiece, with views over the Lagoon, gardens and pool, offering intimate spaces for couples to savour the sights, sounds and tastes of their unique surroundings. The cuisine is clean, fresh and creative, showcasing the finest local produce with emphasis on local seafood, lush tropical fruits, premium products and the diversity of cultures that have shaped Fiji and the South Pacific. The dining concept is daily-changing in a mini-Degustation style for lunch and dinner, combined with a variety of themed evenings showcasing local and cultural elements.

Olivia Smith (Staff)

Opened in 2007, this exquisitely designed resort is the first in Fiji to have overwater bungalows, and is thus the first to compete directly with Bora Bora and other French Polynesian islands for honeymooners and others seeking these romantic cottages built on stilts over the lagoon. Looking out at Castaway Island from a half-moon, beach-fringed bay on the northwestern corner of Malolo Island, Likuliku shows intricate Fijian touches throughout, with magimagi (sennit, or coconut rope) lashing the log beams under the natural thatched roofs of its buildings. Likuliku was built and is owned by the Fiji-bred Whitten family, who made sure it reflects their country's indigenous culture. The 10 overwater bures have glass fish-viewing floor panels flanking their coffee tables, and more glass behind the sinks in their airy bathrooms. Each unit has a deck with steps leading down into the lagoon, which can be very shallow at low tide -- during which the average depth is 1.5m (5 ft.), compared to a few centimeters in French Polynesia. The overwaters are close to a reef edge, however, so you can easily reach deep water at all tides. The split-level bungalows ashore all face the beach and are identical except for plunge pools set in the front decks of the Deluxe Bures. Overlooking the sea and a large swimming pool, the restaurant serves exquisite Pacific Rim fare and the service is attentive, efficient, and friendly.
