Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Blue Lagoon Beach Resort, Nalova Bay, Nacula Island, Yasawa Islands, Fiji
This boutique resort is a little gem.  It’s location in the Northern Yasawa Group is as far from the mainland of Viti Levu that a fast ferry can reach and get back to Port Denarau in daylight hours year-round.  The 4½ hour ferry ride via the many island resorts it calls at is scenic enough but once you arrive at Blue Lagoon Resort you are totally impressed with the beautiful beach setting of the resort on its perfect tropical island.

With accommodation units plus two dormitories the resort is a good mid-size and caters equally well for singles, couples of all ages, honeymooners and families. There is a lovely laid-back atmosphere throughout the place and nothing is too regimented.  Meals are generally taken at long multi-share tables but for those wanting personal space there are smaller tables too. A table can be set up on the beach for those seeking privacy and romance, especially for a sunset dinner. The laid-back atmosphere extends right through to the Kids’ Club were programs are individually tailored for individual family needs and if there is something the carers feel the kids who are not in attendance that day may enjoy, they’ll come around offering other kids (and parents too - if parents want be involved) to participate.

Having the high quality dormitories adds to the overall feeling of the resort too, as single travellers who are not the partying kind of backpackers, enjoy the family friendly atmosphere and add another dimension and enjoyment to the many resort activities and the conversations over meals which all guests enjoy.

Being relaxed and active at the same time is a breeze at Blue Lagoon Resort.  The resort and the local village happily exist on the same island and an organised visit to Nacula Village, where all the local staff come from, is a terrific experience, especially on a Sunday when a church visit is included.  It pays to pack a pair of reasonable walking shoes for the hike up the hill behind the resort.  The walk can be a little steep in places and there is a little tropical bush to navigate through, but once you make the summit the views experienced are amazing.  A morning or evening beach walk or run is rewarding while Scuba Diving is another resort activity everyone can enjoy and beginners are welcome.  However, the highlight of a stay at Blue Lagoon Resort just has to be a visit to the famous Sawa-i-Lau cave – we won’t spoil the experience for you by giving too much away (except to mention that it does involve holding your breath for a few seconds on the way in and out), but urge you to “just do it” -  the experience cannot be had anywhere else in the South Pacific.

Compulsory Meal Plan
A compulsory daily meal plan will be charged and included in our package arrangements.

Your Accommodation Options
Blue Lagoon Beach Resort accommodation coves a wide range of options from 8 bed dormitories handily located in the gardens close to the central facility right through to spacious, superior-quality two-room Palm Villas right on the beach. The range of accommodation types and facilities on offer can be quite difficult to decipher, so, to try to ensure each prospective guest knows exactly what is on offer, we have split the range into 2 categories:
Air-conditioned accommodation.

Room Categories
Non-Air-Conditioned Accommodation
(In ascending order of tariff)
Bullet Bula Lodge Rooms:

The 10 Bula Lodge Rooms are in a ribbon block handy to the dormitory buildings. Guest in both the Bula Lodge and the Dorm share the same communal bathroom/toilet facility block.  The small but comfortable Bula Lodge rooms are fan-cooled, have neither fridge nor Tea/coffee making facility and probably best suit couples or 2 friends seeking a cheaper accommodation type.  Each room has a small private deck out front and a view of the resort gardens. 
Maximum Occupancy: 2 guests aged 18 years and over
Existing Bedding: 1 King Bed which can be split into 2 Single Beds.
Additional Bedding: No additional bedding accommodated.

Bullet Garden Villas:

Although Garden Villas have neither a fridge no tea/coffee facility, each sports a furnished, private veranda patio (day bed or bench seat) out front and out back, this resort’s superb signature bathroom with vanity and toilet opening out to a walled courtyard containing an open-air shower.  This style of bathroom is so right for this far-away island location.

To facilitate air circulation, the room dividing wall does not reach the ceiling.
The Deluxe Beachfront Villa is only steps away from the water and has a big veranda out front and a fantastic sea view framed by the trunks of the mature coconut palms.  The veranda is furnished with a large day bed and a hammock and is an ideal place to while away the hours and catch the sunsets.

Getting to and from Blue Lagoon Beach Resort Fiji
The Resort is located 47 nautical miles (87 kilometres) from the Fijian mainland so it takes a bit of an effort to get there.
Scheduled High-Speed Catamaran Ferry:
The ferry takes just on 4.5 hours to reach Blue Lagoon Resort.  The transit is on the “Yasawa Flyer”, a modern, air-conditioned high-speed catamaran ferry with a café on board which operates a daily schedule between Port Denarau and Blue Lagoon
The Yasawa Flyer stops at 9 resorts enroute to Blue Lagoon and at 10 resorts on the return journey.
