“If you want the BEST!”
Reviewed March 3, 2009

I stayed at Lalati with a group of friends for 3 nights, and from the moment we walked onto the jetty from the boat, we were ALL welcomed like kings and queens. We were taken in by very friendly staff who all learnt and remembered every one of our names and did not even have to ask twice. We were all given a coconut to drink from accompanied by a complimentary foot massage. The welcome really set the tone for the entire stay. Every meal was prepared with absolute perfectionism and was of supreme quality. The bure was a good comfortable size which, no matter how messy you left it, you would always return to made beds and a sparkling floor and bathroom. The snorkling is magnificent - coral as far as you can see, with fish far and near. I also experienced an amazing hour massage - i get plenty of massages, this one was gooooood! Id like to thank Brad who made our stay so fantastic and Id recommend Lalati to absolutely anyone who wants to have a really enjoyable and relaxing holiday in luxury!

Lalati was an amazing place to stay and relax... but if you wanted to keep busy there was always a fun activity to keep you busy. The staff are beautiful and make you feel right at home from the boat ride over to the time we left. Blissful atmosphere and a true hidden treasure!

Lalati Resort was so unlike the typical concrete jungle of the large Fijian resorts! It was a Beautiful secluded island resort, surrounded by natural rainforest, with gorgeous views out over the water and towards the main island. The adventure started off with a pod of Dolphins at our bow on the boat ride over, followed by a beautiful serenading by the staff, who by the end of the first day knew the names of all 8 in our group and provided the best level of service I have ever recieved.
We then had 3 days of the best snorkelling I have ever done in Fiji, where I have never seen so much live coral in such shallow and easily accessible water, with fish, lobsters, dolphins all straight off the jetty! We then experienced the Fijian cultural experiences via a village tour with the traditional Meke dance and Lovo feast! I will definately be returning there for the snorkelling, diving, incredible service and fantastic value with beautiful food all included!

Sam.

My wife and I returned on June 22 from our honeymoon we booked through South Seas Adventures. The staff was extremely helpful throughout the booking process, and was honest in their depictions of many possible honeymoon vacations. I worked with Gregory who was professional and thorough, and also made the entire process simple- which was appreciated since I wanted to focus my attention on other important plans for my wedding.

Our stay at Lalati did not go entirely according to plan, and was initially delayed due to flight complications, causing my wife and I to pay for an extra night (on top of our "all inclusive package"). Lalati resort promised a reimbursement, and in the end failed to deliver. South Seas Adventures was so dedicated to my satisfaction with their service that they agreed to pay half of the cost of the extra night, even though they had no contractual obligation to do so. I highly recommend their services in arranging travel in the south pacific!

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.

Lalati was amazing and the perfect place for a honeymoon in paradise! We stayed 10 days at Lalati, 8 of them in the honeymoon bure which was worth every penny! It is absolutely gorgeous with your own hot tub, outdoor shower, outdoor courtyard, and waterfall. Very romantic!

The food was excellent - five star meals three times a day. Additionally, you have the option of dining alone on the pier, on your veranda, or with the other guests.

The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. They were quick to help us plan any activity we liked... from snorkel trips to kayaking around the island, to a day trip on Storm Island. Everyone was so kind and always had a smile on their face. Lalati has the perfect amount of activities available; however, the hammoks on the veranda, the pool, and the spa make it very easy to decide to have a low key afternoon!

Our favorite activities were our discovery shore dive and the two open water dives we did. Words cannot describe the beauty of the reef and the sea life! We saw sharks, sea snakes, frog fish, lion fish, and all kinds of soft coral, just to name a few.

We were also impressed with how environmentally friendly Lalati is. For example, the water in each bure comes from rain water collected on the roof!

Overall, Beqa island is the most beautiful place we have ever seen. The island and the reefs are pristine and stunning! We would definitely stay at Lalati again!

Lalati is a very special place. It was a perfect vacation. Beqa Island is remote, pristine and well worth the fun journey to get there. There are no cars or roads on the island, only footpaths connecting the Fijian villages.

The staff was wonderful and felt like family. There is no tipping at the resort, and you feel that people are being nice to you because they are sincerely kind and friendly.

My husband and I normally need the first four or five days of a vacation to “wind down” before we feel relaxed. We both noticed that at Lalati we were completely relaxed within a few hours of arriving. We have never experienced such “immediate relaxation” on a vacation before. It made the whole week seem longer since we mellowed out so quickly.

The owners are warm, welcoming and attentive to your needs without imposing on your privacy. Likewise, manager Beato makes sure you are happy and looks after your every request (before you think of it). Beato is very funny and personable and you won’t want to say goodbye to him at the end of your vacation!

The spacious accommodations (Bures) are beautiful, luxurious, extremely private and well-maintained. Fresh flowers are kept in the bathroom and living areas.

Beato prepares amazing meals that defy the remoteness of the resort! I have never eaten so well in my life. The food is truly gourmet and plentiful. The kitchen is careful with any special dietary requests (one of the guests was a vegetarian and seemed very happy with her meals). Meals are served at a large group table, but guests are welcomed to eat privately at their own table if desired.

The resort offered many non-diving activities – hikes, trips to the village, spa treatments, kayaking, trips to a small island for a romantic lunch or dinner - Storm Island – and surfing. Our favorite activity was to kayak across the bay to a secluded cove and snorkel. It was a world class spot, by far the best snorkeling we have ever experienced. The pool/hot tub area is lovely – we spent most afternoons sitting by the pool in the shade with a good book and cold drink. The view from the pool area across the bay is amazing.

The dive boats left around 8:30 for a two tank dive. The dive shop picks up your gear on arrival and you don’t have to handle it again all week. Everything is set up for you and rinsed/stored after each dive. Hot chocolate and banana bread were offered during the surface interval. The dive sites were all within 10-20 minutes of the resort. Most of the diving was on pinnacles in Beqa Lagoon. Pinnacles were swarming with life – we saw the following plus much more: male ribbon eel, juvenile ribbon eel, lizard fish, lionfish, pipefish, Mertens’ butterflyfish, Ornate butterflyfish, regal angel fish, spine cheek anemone fish, jewel damselfish, fire dartfish, cleaner wrasse, orangeband surgeonfish, Moorish idol, yellow tang, clown triggerfish, pallid triggerfish, unicornfish, sea turtles, arc eye hawkfish, freckled hawkfish, knife razorfish, red-eye hovering goby, scythe triggerfish, crescent wrasse, two tone dart, signalfin goby, latticed sandperch, leaf scorpionfish, trumpetfish, blackspotted puffers, popcorn shrimp, spotted toby, saddled butterflyfish, humphead bannerfish, golden spadefish, orange spine unicornfish, clark’s anemonefish, longnose hawkfish, speckled damsel, blue and yellow fusilier, yellowtail coris, crinoid clingfish, octopus, emperor angelfish, two-spot snapper, steep-head parrot fish, three spot dascyllus, white spotted puffer, bi-color blenny, yellowstripe goatfish, bird wrasse, wedgetail triggerfish, longnose file fish, Picasso triggerfish, pyramid butterflyfish, black snapper, singular bannerfish, longfin bannerfish, masked bannerfish, black spot angelfish, mimic surgeon fish, barred rabbitfish, blackbar damsel, whiteband damsel, speckled damsel, midnight snapper, bi-color flag blenny.
We took one trip to Frigate’s Passage (a longer boat ride around the island) where we did some neat swim-throughs and saw several reef sharks.
I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about the resort, the dive operation or our vacation! It was perfect.
