Shanna Dickerson, CEO of Blue Sky Luxury Concierge, had not yet been to Fiji. So when she finally had chance to explore, she started at the top: Laucala Island.
“As someone who specializes in private islands, I expected Laucala Island to be top notch. And it certainly was,” says Shanna. “But what made it ‘over the top excellent’ were the Fijian people. They are one of a kind and made my first trip to Fiji so very special.
Shanna launched Blue Sky Luxury Concierge in 2010 after moving to St. John where she oversaw a multi-million-dollar beachfront villa. There, she perfected her concierge services. Ultimately expanding to include luxury villas and private islands around the world.
“Laucala Island is very unique, with its gorgeous architecture – I loved the jellyfish chandelier in my villa. And the super-friendly staff. The word ‘no’ doesn’t exist,” says Shanna. “I also loved how every staff member remembered my name. The views are breathtaking – perfect for a destination wedding or even corporate retreat. And I loved the pool/bar area. A-MAZING. I also really liked that a couple can rent an individual villa and still receive the private island experience.
As for the food. “The culinary experience was superb,” says Shanna. “I don’t eat pork or red meat and the chefs were wonderful at modifying meals for me; made whatever I wanted – and it was super yum. “
