Hotel Review

As remote as it gets. On an island, off an island, off the mainland of Fiji. Upholds a strong reputation with both its well-heeled clientele and the locals. Sold by Malcolm Forbes to the Red Bull owner, Dietrich Mateschitz. Run by the stout, patrician, General Manager, Andrew Thomson. Very classy with Island's farm and hydroponic gardens. Makes its own soap, papaya jam and green tea ice cream. There are five specific hang out spots: the colonial Plantation House, Beach Bar, Pool Bar (where guests tend to congregate), Rock Bar and Seagrass Bar. Villas are decorated in an eco-chic style: natural yet luxurious furnishing with jaw dropping views out across the open sea. The outdoor bathrooms and capacious egg shaped baths are a real treat. There is almost no end to activities on site - from voyaging aboard the property's 100 year old Croatian sailing boat to getting your PADI certification with the help of a friendly instructor and a couple of inquisitive hawksbill turtles. A superlatively luxurious castaway experience.

Laucala Island: a far-flung Fijian paradise

In terms of natural riches, the 3,500-acre Pacific island has it all: steep mountains with views over inky seas and turquoise bays, subtropical forests burbling with birdsong and lit up with exotic flowers, and underground aquifers full of fresh water. The air is sweet with the smells of fruit trees and coconut. A dozen beaches fringe its shores. And in the distance a reef, rich with Technicolor coral and marine life, protects it from the sea. The island is so picture-perfect, in fact, that it is almost kitsch in its beauty: as unspoilt today as it was when the Dutch sailor Abel Tasman explored these waters in the 17th century.
