Laucala’s 25 villas, all glamorous versions of traditional Fijian dwellings, each offer unparalleled exclusivity and privacy in dramatic, and very different, locations around the northern coast of the island.
Eleven Plantation villas are set amid a coconut grove beside a private beach; four Plateau villas perch atop Nawi Mountain at the heart of the island, ringed by rainforest and offering unbroken views of the sea; seven Seagrass villas line a powder-white beach; the Peninsula villa hugs a cliff and crescent-shaped beach; the Overwater villa is set above an emerald-green lagoon; and the Hilltop Estate sits at one of the island’s highest points, commanding views of the Fijian archipelago.
Regardless of their location, villas are designed with soft curves and free-flowing shapes, using natural materials in construction: thatch roofs made from the leaves of sago palms, local doga timber, bala bala fern stems, and a traditional coconut husk weave known as magi magi. Impeccably furnished bedroom and living areas open to private gardens, each with an infinity-edge pool lit by Tikki torches come dusk. Villas come with a buggy, so guests are free to explore the resort at their leisure.
HILLTOP ESTATE The guests of the Hilltop Residence live “up on top”. High up in the opulent green hills of Laucala island, the “resort in a resort” crowns the dreams of luxury living à la Laucala.
For some people it is the captivating panorama view; for others it is the unique atmosphere which makes guest’s South Seas dreams of “undreamt of pleasures” come true, with 1.200 square metres of living space, 11.000 square metres for of bedroom space and other private quarters, an unusually designed main residence with its own panoramic pool landscape, two spacious guest residences and special services such as a private cook, a chauffeur and a private nanny.
OVERWATER VILLA If one thinks of Laucala as paradise-like holiday scenery, the Overwater Residence is one of the brilliant colours that elevate this resort to a noble holiday work of art.
You will never experience the fascination of the South Pacific anywhere as fully as in the two-bedroom residence, which appears to float above the emerald-green lagoon. You will not only enjoy luxurious living over an omnipresent ocean when you relax on the spacious terrace ranging across several levels over the lagoon but also when you have a bath in the hot tub or in the large private pool, which has been carved directly into the rocks of the shore, and last but not least while enjoying a romantic Sundowner cocktail or during a private dinner.
PENINSULA VILLA Almost all of us have experienced the desire to have our own little kingdom. On Laucala, Peninsula Residence is the epitome of this desire.
This luxurious mansion resembles an “island on an island”, caressed by the dazzling turquoise waters of the South Pacific and surrounded by opulent green hills, a white beach and plenty of space for privacy. The spacious living areas are connected to each other by rope bridges offering spectacular views.
The natural pool carved into the rock, the concealed private beach and its own jetty guarantee exclusive and completely undisturbed privacy.
This exclusive privacy is actually the genuine Laucala luxury, the seductive icing on the cake of the Peninsula Residence.
PLANTATION VILLAS In the eleven Plantation Residences you can do what you like – relax on the sun deck, the private beach, in your own pool, the hot tub, the shady daybed, the stylish indoor or open-air lounge or in your own bed. Incorporated into the old coconut plantation, the 300 to 610 square metre-large residences completely. South Seas romance.
And the exemplary care provided here – as in all residences – by the personal “Tao” (Tao means “my friend”) makes sure each guest’s private dreams of paradise come true.
PLATEAU VILLAS The exotic character of the private island and the iridescent world of the South Pacific form the background to the fantastic Laucala holiday scenery. In the four Plateau Residences this scenery can be viewed from a very special, natural perspective.
Situated on Nawi Mountain, all residences offer unforgettable views out to the sea and the neighbouring islands. Carefully integrated into the island atmosphere, their open-plan design blurs the boundary between the interior and exterior areas and gives guests a better idea of the atmosphere of this South Seas island. Thanks to the exclusive seclusion on the ridge the Plateau Residences are particularly suitable for undisturbed visits with family or friends.
SEAGRASS VILLAS The art of living in harmony with nature without renouncing the conveniences of modern comfort finds its highest expression in the seven Seagrass Residences that nestle unobtrusively under the opulent green of the Sea Grass Bay’s coastline. And like all the other residences they captivate visitors with their clear commitment to the natural environment and Fijian traditions.
With their remarkable combination of vast space, exclusively designed interiors, natural materials, luxurious comfort, and the natural outdoor areas with its organically shaped pool and private beach, they create wonderfully inspiring surroundings for sophisticated nature lovers.
