Likuliku Lagoon Resort – A unique paradise with authentic overwater bures

Adults-only Fiji resort review. 

5 star fiji resort

Set in a tranquil lagoon with Fiji’s first and only authentic overwater bures, Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a luxury adults-only holiday destination that should be on every discerning traveller’s bucket list.

It takes a lot to stand out in a crowded world of resorts, hotels, experiences and destinations.   It takes commitment and dedication to be what you promise to be and to be true to your heart and soul.  You start with an ancient name – meaning calm waters,  and aim high to honour the magic of that name.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort in Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands has done just that.

Likuliku is a unique paradise set in a tranquil, turquoise lagoon with Fiji’s first and only authentic overwater bures.  Featuring 10 of these traditionally designed bures, as well as 18 Deluxe Beachfront Bures with their own plunge pool and day bed, 14 Beachfront and 3 Garden Beachfront Bures.  It’s more than just luxurious accommodations at Likuliku – it’s about a whole promise that is met from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave these tranquil shores.

A sustainable Fiji resort

Sustainable travel is a bit of a buzz word nowadays, but often those that say the most may be doing not as much as those that quietly get on with it.   Likuliku works tirelessly behind the scenes to create a home that leaves as little impact on its surrounding marine areas and land as it possibly can.  Fijian owned, the resort takes its mandate to care for its ancient lands very seriously.

The island of the resting sun

Set on Malolo Island Fiji – the island of the resting sun in Fijian legend, the team at Ahura Resorts are active members of the Mamanuca Environment Society, and are committed to their Fijian Crested Iguana conservation and breeding program which is the centrepiece of their environmental and sustainability efforts.
In 2010 a critically endangered single Fijian Crested Iguana was found at Likiliku Lagoon Resort. Thought to be extinct, the team were able to determine the key barrier to this species’ survival was their habitat – the Tropical Dry Forest.
The Dry Forest is one of the most endangered of ecosystems on the planet and are crucial to the survival of this unique Iguana. Over a four year period, the resort was able to control invasive species and establish a Dry Forest nursery allowing the Iguana to slowly begin to repopulate in the wild.
The resort now cares for, under permit, four breeding pairs in their own facility and is the only place in the world to hatch Iguana eggs in captivity under natural conditions. Testament to this,last year Likuliku Lagoon Resort was accepted into the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World collection, specifically for their work in these areas.
Likuliku Lagoon Resort is the only Unique Lodge in Fiji and all of the South Pacific.
The inclusion in this unique programme means a lot.  The National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World is more than just a selection of world class hotels – it is a collection of rare experiences, offering guests intimate encounters with parts of the world not many get to know – and the chance to slow down and get to really know them. In order to be a part of this programme each lodge must be deeply rooted in its community and dedicated to protecting the surrounding habitats and cultures – and protecting them for future generations.

Enjoy time together without impacting others

When you visit Likuliku Lagoon you will truly feel that you have been welcomed into a unique paradise.  From the moment you step off your transfer, whether it be boat, helicopter or seaplane, you will be welcomed and begin to feel a deep rest settle upon yourselves.   Your bure, whether it be overwater or land-based is designed to be welcoming, relaxing and peaceful.

This resort is designed with many nooks for couples to be together without impacting others – the pool is designed with your sun lounges not all in one line – but set up in pairs away from the other pairs, and the pool itself in uniquely shaped for you to feel you have the pool to yourself.

Intimate dining experiences

Dining at Likuliku is set up to achieve a feeling of intimacy for each couple. Each area in Fijiana Restaurant features views as well as an outdoor dining terrace. Or choose to dine on one of the resorts’ peaceful outdoor beachside decks.  Take the opportunity to book a lunchtime treat and visitLikuliku’s own private island, Mociu for an exclusive picnic on this uninhabited island only 15 minutes by boat from the resort.   Mociu is a protected nature reserve and is only accessible to Ahura Resorts guests.  Snorkelling at Mociu’s fringing reef is remarkable.

When you stay at Likuliku all your meals are included in your price.  Chef Shane Watson has designed menus that have an emphasis on the finest local and international produce focussing mostly on local seafood, meats, vegetables and fruit and bearing in mind the hot tropical climate, you will find it simple but creative and contemporary.  Little things like a juice bar at breakfast, innovative changing menus, and premium wines to complement all meals, will be the highlights of your dining experience.
