BLUE LAGOON BEACH RESORT
Nalova Bay, Nacula Island, Yasawa Islands, Fiji

Our Thoughts on Blue Lagoon Beach Resort Fiji
This 3½ Star 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 only 41 accommodation units plus two 8-bed 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.

Fiji massage is available in a purpose-built massage hut at Blue Lagoon. The massages are done by the local ladies, who have grown up with massage being an integral part of daily life. 

Complimentary wifi is available at the resort.

We suggest that you don’t scrimp on the time you allocate to a visit to Blue Lagoon – we suggest a minimum of 5 nights, but even if you can only spare a night or two, the whole experience of a stay in this far-flung and natural part of Fiji can be very rewarding, especially for those who value a true old-fashioned-style Fiji holiday with a few modern comforts thrown in as well. 

This place rates itself at 3½ Star and if you go there expecting that standard you will have a wonderful holiday experience. 

What Blue Lagoon Beach Resort Say About Themselves:
