Laucala Islandreopens to guests July 1. And we can’t wait. The reopening follows a forced closure earlier this year due to landscaping and decorative damage resulting from Cyclone Winston.
“The island team has worked tirelessly over the last four months refreshing the landscaping around the island and conducting regular maintenance of our villas and public spaces, bringing it back to its immaculate beauty,” says Christoph Ganster, managing director of Laucala Island. “New and returning guests can expect to enjoy a pristine South Pacific environment and warm Fijian hospitality that has solidified Laucala as one of the best island retreats in the world.”
Laucala Island is spread across 3,500 acres of rainforest-laced landscapes and white sandy beaches, and features 25 Fijian-style villas. Each villa, constructed with local timber, thatch and stone, is uniquely adorned with traditional Fijian designs, and comes with private pools, indoor and outdoor showers and outside baths. The villas are set amid coconut plantations, beside deserted beaches and atop the island’s volcanic mountains.
