I'm an American living in Fiji and have stayed at many resorts in Fiji--large and small. And I have to say, Lalati has been the best BY FAR. Too often resorts in Fiji over promise and under deliver. Others are so expensive that no one traveling within a budget--no matter how big--can afford them. At Lalati, you get much more than what you pay for.
Lalati truly does it right. From the moment you arrive at the resort you are welcomed as a member of the family. The staff are the friendliest group of Fijians my partner and I have ever come across. They really care about you and want you to have a memorable experience. If you want anything, all you have to do is ask. You won't be turned down. The owners Brad and Sue and their son Jordan are true professionals and should be proud of the wonderful environment they have created.
You can be as active or inactive as you want. There are always planned activities to keep you busy. But if all you want to do is lounge around and read, what better place to do it than swinging in your own hammock right on the edge of the bay.
My partner went to Lalati for the diving and we were not disappointed. We've done lots of diving around Beqa Island from Viti Levu but many of the dive sites we were brought to we had never even heard of. The dive staff is amazing and really take care to make you feel comfortable whatever your experience.
While we were there, the resort was rather full, but we never felt crowded or pressured to be a part of anything we didn't want to. We spent time with the other guests when we wanted and spent time alone when we wanted. We met some very nice couples and spent most evenings in the bar/restaurant socializing.
If you're like me and you narrow your list of potential holiday destinations down to a couple of places, let me tell you to forget about everywhere else. I've been to them and they cannot hold a candle to this place!
