My wife and I were fortunate enough to take our honeymoon to the French Polynesian island of Moorea and are looking for another great island trip for our 5-year anniversary. So, naturally, we thought what better place to return to than the South Pacific?
We've found a travel deal for Lalati Resort on Beqa Island. The good news is that it fits within our travel budget. The potentially bad news is that it's the only Fijian resort we have found that fits within our travel budget.
We've read a couple dozen reviews of the resort and island and we've read multiple places that it's won several TripAdvisor awards. However, I wanted to pose the question to this forum to get a few more opinions.
We aren't divers, but we enjoy snorkeling, hiking, culture, and good food. We like having the option to be active as well as the option to be lazy at times. We tell our friends and family that we don't just want to "go" places, we want to "experience" them. What we mean is that we don't just want to say that we've been somewhere, we want to leave with memories and hopefully a connection to the places we've been.
We know this is a good resort. We just want to make sure this is a good resort for us since we don't dive.
Please feel free to leave your opinion of the resort and/or the island. If you have any information on excursions or experiences that you would recommend, we'd love to hear about those, too.
