My husband and I visited Lalati on the first leg of our honeymoon. After a very long trip - 20hrs flying from Scotland, 2.5hrs in a taxi and 45mins boat trip - we realised Lalati was going to be very special as we arrived and were handed cold towels, fruit punch and banana bread. We were met on arrival by the resort owner Jane and shortly after were introduced to her husband Clint. Jane and Clint are always available to answer questions, organise anything you need or make suggestions on activities or dining options. It's lovely to have them eat meals with everyone and really makes you feel like Lalati is a home from home rather than a resort.
As a great deal of other reviews have said the people here really make the experience extra special. You cannot go anywhere without hearing calls of "bula" and people asking about your day. All the staff remember your name which again makes the whole experience feel much more personal.
We were lucky enough to stay in the honeymoon bure and it was so spectacular. Jane's attetion to detail is unbelievable and it was really perfect. The only problem we had when we were there was the mosquitos. It was really hard to enjoy the outside space as nothing seemed to deter them.
The food was spectacular and I can't remember feeling hungry once. This however didn't stop me munching my way through the fresh cookies which magically appearing in our bure everyday. If you get the opportunity have a meal out on the pier. It was one of the most romantic moments of my life.
The weather can be unpredictable in this part of the world and we had four good days and three bad days. However after the mayhem of planning our wedding I was glad for the excuse to stay in the bure, watch dvds, go to the spa and take it easy.
I can't imagine a more perfect honeymoon experience than Lalati. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what makes it so special. We loved the people, the attention to detail, not having to book activities days in advance, all the evening activities and the total romance of it all. Go to Lalati for a magical honeymoon. You won't be dissapointed.
