Located in dense rainforest and fronting the sparkling turquoise waters of Malamu Bay, Lalati Resort is located on the island of Bega and offers visitors a cocktail of romance and peaceful solitude.
The resort has just seven bures. Five of these are deluxe beach bures, which feature two bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed, and the other with a zip-apart king-sized bed, a relaxation area, large modern bathroom and a spacious verandah with ocean views.
There are also two Bua bures set back from the beach among lush gardens. These bures only have one bedroom but still include a comfortable sitting area and verandah. Whichever bure you choose, you'll be delighted by the amount of space - they've been described as some of the biggest bures in Fiji.
While sunny days in Fiji are great for activities like snorkelling, scuba diving and relaxing with a cocktail under a palm, rainy days (and there are quite a few) give you a good excuse to kick back in the brand new health spa. For $65 an hour a Melika Lomi Lomi massage will make you forget all about the rain.
Lalati Resort is all about seclusion in a tropical paradise, but if you're after complete seclusion - like a whole deserted island to yourself - head out on a five-minute boat ride to Nanuku Island. The locals call it Storm Island because according to legend, it was created by a massive storm. Skipper Joe can drop you off at Nanuku Island in the morning and pick you up when you're ready to come home.
There's absolutely nothing on the island but native flora and fauna, beautiful sweeping beaches and warm sandy shores. The resort chef can whip up a complimentary lunch before you go. It's also a good idea to take plenty of water, sunscreen, hat and of course, your swim suit.Image credit/License: Miguel Sancheese
