  • Simply Enjoy Paradise at Likuliku Lagoon Resort

    From the air, Likuliku Lagoon looks like an idyllic Melanesian village lost in time. A translucent white beach meets an impossibly blue lagoon and a brilliantly emerald green jungle.

    Likiliku is situated among the Mamanuca Islands in western Fiji. In the local Malolo dialect “Likiliku” means “calm waters”. The area is home to the legend of “Tui Lawa” (the “Ocean Chieftain”) and was often a secret haven for the canoes of warring tribes. Continue Reading

The service was fantastic with very attentive and social flight attendants. Sleeping was easy on board for this night time flight to Auckland. Continue Reading
