Our Resort Report

Our Thoughts on Lalati Resort & Spa, Beqa Island, Fiji
This pretty little resort changed hands in 2018 and has recently undergone quite a few changes and improvements, although, under the new owners, the essence of the place has been maintained and enhanced. 

In the recent past Beqa Island, the home of the legendary Fiji Firewalkers, has been slightly off the radar for general holidaymakers from New Zealand, having made its name mainly for its spectacular dive sites, including soft corals and the famous “diving with the sharks” experience.  However, in more recent times, while SCUBA diving is still an important reason to visit, more and more non-divers are discovering the many natural attributes of this sizeable island which include forest walks, waterfalls, beautiful Fijian Villages, and natural beaches.  The natural features are complemented by the activities and facilities at Lalati Resort in the form of watersports, a very good restaurant (all meals are included in the tariff), a lovely little Day Spa offering a surprising range of spa treatments and a great-value wedding package. All this is enhanced by the “country charm” of the welcoming Beqa people you will befriend as they go about their daily resort tasks.

Lalati Resort is located at the entrance to a long, calm inlet on the north side of Beqa Island.  The resort faces the entrance to the inlet and the forest on the far side of the bay which gives the resort a lovely outlook, not only of the bay and the tropical forest on the far side of the bay, but also to the Beqa Lagoon with the mountains of Viti Levu (the mainland) in the middle distance. The outlook to the mainland is somewhat reminiscent of being in Tahiti facing the mountains of Moorea.

The villas at Lalati are beautifully simple in their construction with plenty of space and comfort and an indoor-outdoor flow which is ideal for this location where all accommodation affords water views filtered through tropical palms and gardens. 

Lalati is the perfect spot for relaxing, honeymooning, having a perfect island wedding, catching up on your reading, and so on.  It is possible to snorkel (or dive) amongst the amazing coral gardens immediately off the beach, enjoy a private dinner at the end of the pier, laze in a hammock, explore the coast of the bay by kayak, renew your wedding vows, take in some spa treatments – the list goes on and on.

Lalati Resort & Spa on Beqa Island Fiji is a wonderful choice for a Fiji Island Holiday and is the sort of place that once you’ve made your first visit, you’ll be impatient to return.  

The nightly tariff at Lalati Resort & Spa includes:
● Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily
● A welcome drink on arrival
● Use of snorkelling equipment throughout stay
● Use of all resort-based non-motorised watersports equipment
● Weekly lovo and kava ceremonies
● Weekly village excursions
● Weekly cultural activities

What Lalati Resort & Spa Say About Themselves
"Escape from it all.

Power down, unplug, kick off your shoes and let yourself go. No roads, no cars, no sounds but the water on the shore, the gentle tradewinds in your hair. Or own the bragging rights and use our Wi-Fi to email, Facebook, Tweet or Snapchat while you sit in a lounge chair overlooking the South Pacific Ocean, a fruity tropical drink in hand.

Lalati’s Pacific Rim cuisine features clean island fare using fresh seasonal ingredients available. Newly picked artisan vegetables, tropical fruits, fine imported meats and seafood caught from the pure seas of Fiji, all feature on an ever-changing daily menu. Our staff lovingly prepares, presents and delivers your island meal with their traditional warm Bula smiles.

Three meals daily are included in your accommodation package price. Beverages include coffee, milk and juices for breakfast, and coffee, tea and filtered water throughout the day. Sodas and alcoholic beverages can be purchased at our Tangaroa Bar.

The water you drink with each meal is the purest captured rainwater, which goes through a triple filtration process. It is first sediment filtered at the source, followed by a run through a charcoal filter system. The final step – a UV light filtration process – ensures that the water is absolutely pure and clean.

Lalati Resort and Spa offers guests a choice from 16 individually designed villas, suites and cottages. Three are scattered about a lush hillside, and 13 are nestled amongst tropical gardens at ocean level.

Distinctively Fijian in nature, with a relaxed tropical style, the private accommodations bring the outdoors in, capturing the beauty of Malumu Bay and Beqa Island. Each room offers total privacy in a rustic style of elegance.
