Fiji Likuliku Lagoon Resort

Monday, January 24th, 2011

If you want pure luxury – this is it. A resort to die for. All bures are absolutely awesome. The overwater bungalows are just amazing. You sit in your lounge and have glass underneath to see the blue water, or you lie in your tub and look out over the ocean. Wonderfully furnished, just heaven. Looked at the garden and beachfront bures, too, and found them just as nice. Stylish design with lots of wood and elegant fabrics, outdoor shower and beautiful tropical gardens. No phone or TV, I liked that. Who would want to watch TV when the views are so incredible?

The food was fantastic, too. And the fruit smoothies as welcome drinks were just delicious. This is to indulge in pure luxury, I never wanted to leave again. Snorkeling is okay, and it is a very sheltered bay so swimming is great.

Not too far from Denarau or Nadi either, just 2 hours to paradise. This place is truly special, wish I could return tomorrow. A honeymoon here would be the best I could imagine. Getting married on the beach, indulging in pure luxury, pampered by friendly Fijians, sipping champagne on your deck,  could life be any better?

Fiji Malolo Island Beach Resort, Mamanucas

Monday, January 24th, 2011

This is a truly Fijian experience: a resort on a beautiful white beach, turquoise-coloured water, coral reefs and coconut palm trees lining the beach. The bures are tastefully furnished in beautiful Fijian style, so that when you enter your bure you immediately feel at home and never want to leave again. This is real paradise. You can snorkel or go canoeing or sailing, or you just hang out on the beach and enjoy. Loved the restaurant up in the jungle and also the kids’ area. Reminded me of Tarzan and Jane and what an adventurous place for the kids. The service is good and the women are so great with the little ones, too. Not too far from Denarau, only about 2 hours on the ferry, and it is an awesome ride through the Mamanuca islands.

Fiji Mana Island Beach Resort

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Spent a night on Mana Island on an island hopper cruise.  Mana Island is very easy to reach from Denarau by ferry. Just a short ride and you are on Mana. The bures are quite nice and have some privacy. There are island bures and oceanfront. Nice outdoor showers. The food was very good and you can sit outside in the mild evenings and watch out over the water. The snorkeling was okay though it is tidal and you have to watch out for the sharp corals. Beautiful colorful fish everywhere and you can snorkel on both sides of the island. I also went up on a short walk onto the little hill from where you have nice views around all of Mana. Very beautiful wedding chapel with white beach in front and tropical surroundings. What a place to get married and spend your honeymoon. If you have a larger group it is well catered for and absolutely private. There is an airstrip so no problem to fly there if you are short of time. All in all very nice place and clear water to snorkel in.

Ko Olina Resort, Marriott – Honolulu, Hawaii

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Staying at the Marriott Ko Olina Resort (Oahu, Hawaii Honolulu/HNL),  was great.

The whole resort is very luxurious. Rooms were spacious and the view was magnificent.  Book discounted rates now

Spent 1 week at this resort. No complaints. Staff was friendly. Beds were comfortable. Pools weren’t crowded. Everything was clean. Food was excellent. I liked the man made lagoons/beaches. I’d definitely go there again. Snorkeling with sea turtles.  Swimming with turtles and dolphins.
5/5
