Likuliku Lagoon Resort
Travel Blogs from Malolo Island
Well today is our last day, we took full advantage of our late check out and enjoyed our last breakfast in paradise, swam in the ocean, and soaked up that last of the sunshine. We had treated ourselves to a helicopter transfer back to Nadi for the flight home it was much quicker and a great way to see the islands of Fiji, our last indulgence before …
Today we decided we were in need of a bit of culture and headed of on a tour which we organised before we left the New Zealand our travel agent Luxury Adventures. The guide (Tevita ) picked us up from Likuliku after breakfast and drove us out to the village, where we were met by a local in full traditional Fijian dress. We took part in a Kava …
Its amazing how tiring doing absolutely nothing can make you! We spend the morning in our overwater bure, had a lazy breakfast with lots of local fruit and soaked up the sun on our private deck. After lunch at the resorts restaurant we decided to try our hand at snorkeling, neither of had done this before and it was truly fantastic, we dived …
Today was a pure chill out day, we decided after all the traveling about and fun activities in New Zealand to take a day to do absolutely nothing but laze by the pool and drink cocktails. What a absolutely beautiful place Likuliku is the pool looks directly onto the white sandy beaches with the crystal clear water shimmering in the back ground. The …
So, it's (our) Saturday, and we leave Fiji tomorrow...Here's the latest update, it's a long one! From Queenstown, we headed to Christchurch. We expected more from that city...we're so glad that we listened to Linda (Brandt's Aunt) and only stayed there one night. While in Christchurch, we did walk to the City Center, saw the famous Cathedral that …

Historical Traveler Reviews Likuliku Lagoon Resort Malolo Island
We went to Likuliku July 9-July 12, 2007. We arrived via South Sea Catamaran. As the boat was near the dock we could hear the employees singing songs. We were greeted with an awesome necklace and a welcome drink. We were then taken to our Deluxe Beachfront Bure with a Plunge Pool (Bure 39). It was so amazing. It had a king size bed decorated with 2 sarongs for us to keep. It also had "LIKULIKU" written with palm leaves. The outdoor shower was so cool. Day or night you could shower with complete privacy. The room had so much storage space, complete with his and her closets. Not to mention his and her sinks! Also in the room was an "L" shaped couch, coffee and end table and side chair. There was a hutch that had a refridgerator and things like glasses, coffee maker, tea bags, coasters, and the best thing was a cookie jar filled everyday with fresh macadameian cookies!! Double doors opened up to a beautiful view. The deck had a plunge pool that exceded our expectations. It was about 5 foot deep. It had a little step so you could just sit if you wanted. The huge daybed was great. It had many pillows and a tray to hold drinks. It also had a light hanging from the top. The beach was only about 30 steps away. There were 2 lounge chairs right there on the sand. The beach was very rocky and shelly, but if you were tough enough or had those water shoes it was ok. The water was so warm and pretty clear. We heard snorkeling was good over by the overwater bures but we never checked it out. The bures have no tv and the stereo only played cd's. Meals were three times a day and that's it. If you miss a meal you're in trouble cause there's no room service. Breakfast was 8-10a.m. Lunch was 12-2p.m. and Dinner was 7-9p.m. Meals were mainly seafood. Yuck! I am very fusy so I didn't enjoy it, but my husband thought it was superb! Breakfast was always a buffet. Lunch and Dinner had a menu that gave you 2 choices only. The menu changed daily. We looked at the Overwater Bures and they were nice but very far from the lobby, restaurant and pool. I would recommend the Deluxe Beachfront Bure. It's cheaper and Better. Every employee knew guests names and were extremely friendly. In other reviews I read about bats. We never heard or saw them or their droppings. When we stayed there it felt as if we had the whole island to ourselves as only 6 couples were staying. We literally saw no one until meal time and even then we sometimes ate alone. It was completely Romantic and peaceful. 3-4 days is great. Anything more would have gotten too boring. If you are budgeting, the catamaran ride is the cheapest and really wasn't bad. You get to see other island and resorts on the way. As a help to those thinking about booking, We paid $2984. USD for three nights in a Deluxe Beachfront Bure and Catamaran to and from Denerau. This price included transfer from Nadi airport and then shuttle to the Hilton Denerau after our stay at LIKULIKU. To end my review, I would totally recommend LIKULIKU.
we decided on Likuliku after months of searching for the perfect spot online.This resort is absolutely stunning.We had the most relaxing and enjoyable few days of our honeymoon.The resort really is as beautiful as it looks on line,fantastic bures (the photos dont do them justice i promise) and clear blue waters.The main dining bure and bars are really beautiful and romantic at night. I do however want to give a complete and realistic review for anyone lucky enough to be headin there soon!I will start by saying that these complaints are MINOR and can be hopefully sorted out.All the reviews are very acurate on this site about the bures,all are beautiful we stayed in a deluxe honeymoon bure on the beach and it really could not have been prettier but there is a walkway to the dining bure out back which unfortunatley for us was covered in Bat droppings our entire stay(more on them later),so if choosing a bure on the beach avoid 43/44 ,i would recommend below 40, as 45 on is very close to the heli landing site.The food is great and the chef Shane really polite and helpful,i had a few problems on this front as i am vegetarian and was told food would be no problem whatsoever,i must say that they went out of their way to create a vegetarian menu for me for lunch and dinner everyday, unfortunately i was accidentally served fish twice and leftovers from the BBQ one night when the chef was "Too Busy" to attend to my meal.The fish actually made me quite ill and i could not eat atall on my final day. The beachfront is beautiful but becareful of small spikey plants on the sand,the spikey seeds loved stickin to our feet most days,really sore! Also pretty fish in the shallows friendly mostly but i got the odd nip. At night above our Bure there are trees filled with hard fruits that fell OFTEN.Bats at night throw the fruit down on the bure roof and its really noisy. Unfortunatly the outside deck was not cleaned our entire stay so we had to do a bit of bat dropping dodging on the way to our pool.Most other bures did not have this problem so consider this. Finally the staff are all really lovely and friendly (especially the lovely australian girls)they're were always asking how we were and about our day,but i hasten to add that the "Likuliku" song which is sang to everyone the night before their departure was sang so many times it actually grated on the guests nerves and you could tell the staff had zero interest in singing it for the millionth time,i would recommend if the resort is reading this to possibly gather all groups leaving and sing it once?I know this has been a really long review but i would really love people to find this resort it is set in the most beautiful lagoon i have ever seen,please go i promise you wont be disappointed!!!!
Very sad to leave. We started at the Westin Denarau for 4 nights, then a night at Mana Island, 3 at Matamanoa and then heaven 4 nights in Likuliku.
LikuLiku Is The Best
This newly opened resort is just a dream !!
Our bure with private plunge pool and day bed was absolutely beautiful.
The staff felt like family by the end of our stay and the food was delicious - special thanks to Shane the Chef and Steve the Manager for making our stay so wonderful.
absolutely loved likuliku lagoon. if you want info about the resort and experience, read the reviews. i agree with all the good points(location, food, staff, etc.) and i agree with the review that was disappointed with the "all-inclusive" not including drinks of any kind. my boyfriend and i stayed in an overwater bure and it was an amazing experience. you have so much privacy and the villas are clean, comfortable, and they meet every need. the villa was beautiful, with a huge deck and chairs and a ladder down to the water(perfect for snorkelling), the bathroom, bedroom, and lounge area were absolutely perfect.
i would advise everyone to stay in an overwater bure, i did not think that the other bures were very impressive for the price that you are paying.
It's difficult to be objective in a review when you enjoyed yourself as much as I did, but I shall try....
Only in my dreams did I ever imagine a place so amazing. We have just returned from Likuiku and want to tell everyone. My new husband and I went for our honeymoon. We were a little hesitant as it is only newly opened. We had high expectations and it met and exceded them all.
We were here for our honeymoon to fall in love with each other more but instead we fell in love with Likuliku. This place is picture perfect. Where do we start.
We booked a bure at LikuLiku Lagoon before they opened in April. We were a little hesitant because it was brand new and we thought there would be a few details that needed to be ironed out, but we were wrong. The resort opened the day before we arrived and we were the third guests on the lagoon. The service is absolutely brillant, everyone was singing and playing music to welcome us to LikuLiku. The people there are genuine and caring about our every need and wish. The food, unlike most places in Fiji, was fantastic. The chef used to be at the Sofitel in Queenstown, NZ and is very talented. We were looking forward to every meal all day! There are plenty activities to do, from SCUBA to snorkling to hiking to kayaking in the lagoon. There is a beautiful reef about 15 feet from shore which is teaming with beautiful sealife. We kayaked there and then snorkled, we saw some really beautiful fish and wonderful coral. We were there during a neap tide where twice a day the water receeded about 20 feet from the beach which only really affects the overwater bungalows, which were not available when we booked. We toured the overwater bures which are beautiful but I don't think it is necessary. You cannot see too much of the water below when you are in them like the ones in Tahiti but they are private (a bit of a walk from everything) and a step up from the other bures with beautiful views. We had the standard bure next to the pool and it was perfect! When booking, we recommend getting the bures to the left of the pool as you are looking at the ocean, they are more private with more foliage. The outdoor and indoor showers are to die for, we miss them a great deal! Also, there is an outdoor covered
We wept when we left!
My wife and I just returned to Fiji for a second time and had the absolute pleasure of staying at Likuliku Lagoon Resort. Our seaplane trip was about fifteen minutes from Nadi. We were the fourth couple to walk up the gangway as the Resort had opened just days earlier, but the word will get out quickly. Our perfectly appointed beachfront bure boasted a plunge pool, day bed, outdoor shower, an incredibly comfortable bed and a view of at least six islands. The overwater bungalows are mind blowing. The food was amazing and the staff was a blast. The sounds of the Resort's acoustic group accompanied every meal. The pool was amazing but the beach was even better. We can't wait to return!
