The LikuLiku Resort features over-water
For agents booking romantic getaways, the new LikuLiku Lagoon
Resort will have clients raving about their perfect honeymoon. This
new resort features over-water bures (straw huts), and children are
not allowed at this romantic hideaway.
Built on a protected marine reserve, LikuLiku provides
incredible snorkeling and diving opportunities, but honeymooners
need never leave their over-water residence to enjoy the colorful
sea life. Guide lights shine into the reef by night so guests have
ample opportunities to watch the shrimp, squid, rays and reef
sharks that populate the waters.
At the resort’s center is Fijiana Restaurant, where the toughest
decision may be whether to order the mud crab omelet with or
without the spicy papaya relish. Chef Shane Watson rolls out a
unique, mouth-watering menu every day, emphasizing seafood,
tropical fruits and produce from his organic garden.
LikuLiku makes it easy to get married in Fiji, and provides a
staff member to accompany the happy couple to Nadi to organize
their registration formalities. Several wedding packages are
available, including a full, traditional Fijian wedding ceremony,
accompanied by a Fijian choir. The LikuLiku Lagoon Resort is a
two-hour catamaran ride away from Nadi www.likulikulagoon.com.
