Lalati Resort & Spa
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Beqa Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2014

My wife and I had planned a three week wedding/honeymoon trip to Fiji and it all began at Lalati. We spent five amazing nights here! From our dream wedding ceremony to my wife getting her diving certification to feeling like part of the island family after the first day, I can't even begin to describe how special this place is to us. Mark and Sue made sure we had everything we needed and because it was just the two of us for our wedding even were our witnesses. The entire staff made us feel welcome from the minute we stepped off the boat. Josiah and Sabine are amazing, diving with them as part of the Blue Starfish Dive Center was fantastic. I had communicated over email with Sabine several months prior to our trip and all the details were perfect. We ended up diving six times with them and it was very great experience. The resort is beautiful and our honeymoon villa was fabulous. The food was delicious as well. It was very hard to leave, we have made some great friends from around the world while we here and the return trip is already in the works!

My husband and I went to this resort for our honeymoon. Wow are we glad we picked this one! Our trip to Fiji has been the best trip either of us has been on. Right from the start the staff is very friendly and makes you feel very welcome. I've never expire need such a nice check in. You might come a guest but you leave feeling like family. We loved how quiet and relaxed the place is and how personal everyone is. It is hard not to live everyone here. Every single staff member was outstanding and will do anything to make you feel at home. The food was amazing and there wasn't a single thing I didn't like. They have options for everyone even if you are vegetarian. The beach front villas are wonderful and relaxing. I suggest those if you want the beachy rustic feel of the island. If you want more of a nice modern indoor feeling then the honeymoon suites are best. Both are beautiful rooms in diffrent ways. If you are considering a quiet relaxing vacation then this is definitely a place you need to experience!

Thank you for taking time to share your experiences of Lalati Resort & Spa with other Trip Advisor readers. And how great that you got to experience two different sides of us - our Deluxe Villas, which are indeed more traditional Fijian style, and our Premium Deluxe Honeymoon Villas, which are new a bit more modern, yet still with a Fijian influence. You got a taste of both worlds in one resort! So happy that we met your expectations, and we thank you for choosing Lalati for your honeymoon. We look forward to seeing you on your anniversary! Dinner on the pier and a moonlight massage maybe? VINAKA for your thoughts and praise!

Thank you Lalati for a wonderful, sadly short, but memorable & relaxing Weekend.
As we live and work in Suva, we were looking for the perfect place to unwind, get away from the city buzz, but yet not spend too long for travel - which I know most of the other guests did.

We found the perfect place in Lalati.
Starting from the easy and quick booking procedure, all the way to a quiet and remote accomodation.

We are already looking forward to our next free weekend where you will hopefully have a villa free for us.

Activity wise, we did not do much, except for kayaking. However we were more looking for some quite time.
And we felt Lalati offers both, for whatever suits your needs.

Management & staff in particular, are very accomodating and always smiling. Despite all different demands and challenges that they are faced with daily, they are always available and helpful.

Your rooms are excellent, spacious and clean.
The new villas are nicely thought through and detailed.
Perhaps a line where you can hang your wet cloth, after swimming is missing, but that is just a minor detail out of an amazing accomodation that you offer. Which is excellent for an remote island such as Beqa.

Food is very nice and the variety is amazing, altough we just stayed 2 nights.

Thank you Mark & Sue for managing and maintaining this place so nicely.
It is run very with a very personal touch and I loved the evening bar sessions where we could mingle with other guest and talk to Mark, on how the resort is run and what plans there are for the future.

Definaltely would recommend it
at any time and we are looking forward to come back some time.

Vinaka,
Ida & Tuma

We love our Suva neighbors! It's nice also for international guests staying with us to be able to chat with local expats living in Suva. It makes for a lovely blend of guests. You know you are welcome any time you have a free weekend, and we have a free room for you. THANK YOU for making Lalati Resort & Spa your special place for a weekend escape.

Where to even begin with Lalati? My husband and I just recently spent 10 amazing days at Lalati for our Honeymoon and could go on for DAYS about this fantastic resort. First and foremost, the staff is what makes this smaller, intimate resort what it is. The food is also far more than what we had expected. Everything was always so fresh and delicious, not one meal disappointed us.

Sue and Mark are not only extremely nice, but always willing to go that extra mile for anything you might need. The resort staff are all from the local village and are probably the nicest people I have ever met in my life. They remembered our names within a day, always yelled "BULA" when they passed us within the resort, and just made our stay so special.

Sabine and Josiah are beyond amazing when it comes to your diving experience at the resort. My husband had just recently received his diving certification but I didn't have time prior to our wedding. I decided to do the Discovery Dive and Josiah took me out. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!! Not only did he make me feel extremely comfortable and safe, he was constantly pointing out all the different fish, coral and sea creatures once we made our way down the Pinnacle.

What an amazing experience at this perfect, quaint resort. From the local village visits, waterfall hike, amazing snorkeling, happy-hour trivia and the overall relaxation, we could not have asked for anything more. We arrived at the resort as new guests and left as friends, not only with other guests but with the staff as well. This was a trip of a lifetime and the most perfect honeymoon I could have ever dreamed of. Thank you Lalati!

Room Tip: The oceanfront villas are the way to go.

We recently spent a heavenly week at Lalati Resort to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. I have never experienced a place quite like this, and I hope I am lucky enough to go back some day. There is such a welcoming feel to Lalati, and an environment that encourages a real sense of community. We made great friends at Lalati, and have kept in touch with some of them. Sue and the staff at Lalati were great, and did everything and then some to make sure we were comfortable. We did 5 days of diving with Josiah and Sabine, and it was fantastic. I hadn't done much diving in recent years and Sabine really helped me get more comfortable with it. The seaview cottage that we were in wasn't fancy, but it had everything we needed, and I still have lovely memories of the curtains wafting through the room as a gentle breeze blew through each night. Our visit into Lalati Villiage was wonderful, and it was great to meet some of the local people. I have nothing but great things to say about this very special place!

WOW - what a lovely thing to say. While we at Lalati Resort feel like we are unique, it's so wonderful to hear that you felt the same. Nothing makes us more pleased than knowing your time spent with us was an experience of a lifetime, and an anniversary to remember. Staff works hard to fulfil requests, both big and small. And we all feel it's not work, but a privilege, to share special moments with new, special friends. VINAKA for your thoughts and words!

This is NOT the Four Seasons. It is a boutique property with few rooms and very few people. If you want a disco and a midnight room service menu you will be disapointed. Lalati IS a comfortable, natural accommodation in a pristine location. The staff are friendly and very good at making you feel welcome. Like all of the other Fijians we met during our trip they were full of smiles and happy to see you. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, comfortable beds and local decor. The meals are very nice, good quantity and very good quality. Meals are served on a set schedule, but this makes a for an opportunity to get to know the staff and the other guests, we met really great people and had lots of fun telling each other about the days adventures over dinner and drinks. The dive operation is small, (just 3 or 4 divers on the boat) the service is very personal and we always felt safe and well looked after. Sabine has become my wifes favorite guide ever. This review would not be complete without thanking Sue and all your staff for making our vacation a truly beautiful experience.

THANK YOU for sharing with Trip Advisor your thoughts about your dive holiday at Lalati Resort & Spa. We are truly grateful to our wonderful guests, who take time out of their busy schedules to share views on Trip Advisor. You are spot on - we are not a large chain hotel, but a small and intimate boutique resort with a personal, Fijian family style atmosphere. So glad you loved the amazing diving in Beqa Lagoon, and our incredible staff, who constantly seek to treat our guests to wonderful Fijian style experiences. VINAKA for sharing your vacation time with us!

First of all let me thank Sue and all your staff for making our dive trip a wonderful experience, I have taken groups all over the South Pacific and you and your team are up there with the best. Unfortunately we missed out of the Shark dive due to weather but hey that's diving. Our group were very sad to leave just a fantastic place. The food was exceptional with plenty of variety to chose from and the cocktails were a delight well done. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that wanted peace and tranquility. This place is a treasure and we have already booked to return next year. Anyone that complains about this place really needs to GET A LIFE.

Room Tip: The Ocean View rooms have a great lookout of the Lagoon and the Sunrise
