A Lavish Escape at Laucala Island

If you’ve ever dreamed of a lavish island escape that’s truly unique, Laucala Island has it all. As the largest private island in the southern hemisphere, Laucala has, until recently, remained a secret with travellers. This luxurious property delivers a decadent holiday experience with a showcase of exclusive amenities, including five restaurants, an 18-hole golf course, 240 acres of farmland and an airstrip complete with three hangars.

Visiting Laucala Island is a breeze, as the island owns the water rights, airspace and marine reserves surrounding the property, guaranteeing the absolute privacy of its guests. Visitors can fly directly onto the island or transfer via Nadi, Fiji on the resort’s own King Air B 200 aircraft. Travellers who enjoy holidaying with their pets can do so on Laucala, as the island is biosecure.

Laucala Island offers 25 well-appointed residences in various locations around the island, whether it’s along Seagrass Bay or high up on Nawi Hill overlooking the South Pacific Ocean. With one, two and three bedroom villas available, each residence is unique and features individually selected décor.

Dining at Laucala is a gourmet experience on par with the world’s leading restaurants. Laucala offers five restaurants and bars ranging from fine dining at the elegant Plantation House Restaurant to authentic Asian creations in the alfresco Seagrass Restaurant. There are no opening hours or bookings, which means that guests can visit any time of the day at their leisure.

During their stay, guests are free to do as much or as little as they wish. They can indulge in a wide variety of leisure activities – including rainforest tours, pampering spa treatments, cooking classes and horseback riding. Laucala Island also offers a rare luxury for passionate golfers who can enjoy an undisturbed round of golf over the private course featuring panoramic views and spectacular tight winding fairways.

The crystal clear water around Laucala Island is a mecca for anglers and coastal fishing as well as for deep-sea diving. Dedicated divers are invited to explore the pristine underwater world with private dive sessions and guided snorkeling trips. Guests wishing to try surfing, sailing or jet-skiing can do so onboard the resort’s fleet of sporting boats, which includes a Riviera Open Flybridge.

Guests can also take a guided tour of Laucala’s farms and plantations. Laucala prides itself in self sustainability and 80 percent of all products are either grown locally or sourced directly from the island. There are 240 acres of farmland spread across the island offering a variety of organic crops and livestock. Various vegetables, herbs, spices and fruits are also grown in the island’s hydroponic greenhouse.
