If thatched-roof huts over glassy waters sound like your kind of island paradise then Likuliku Lagoon Resort is what you’re daydreaming of. Fiji’s only overwater bures (10 overwater, 35 beachfront) sit on a marine reserve and all the components for a picture perfect romance have been considered. Rooms are equipped with all the luxury travel essentials: A.C., iPod dock, phones, wifi, flat screen T.V. and DVD player, yet even with all the gadgets you still feel a world away. Gaze out to the still sea in an eggshell tub, sip fresh muddled cocktails poolside and enjoy chef Brett Kryskow’s delights. His seasonally inspired menu showcases what’s probably the most sophisticated menu in Fiji. Likuliku Lagoon Resort is honeymoon-central so be mindful that everyone’s coupled off, dancing to the slow beats of the lovey-dovey soundtrack and back to their bures by 9PM.


If you really feel the need to leave your overwater bure, book a private picnic on an isolated sandbar.
