Overwater Bungalows: Fiji Beach Resort & the Only Overwater Bungalow Resort

This was created for a honeymoon couple from Los Angeles. They wanted a great beach with overwater bungalows, however, they wanted to go someplace a bit different than all of their friends. So we sent them to Fiji, where there is nothing more romantic than the overwater bungalows at Likliku Lagoon Resort, named Best Overseas Resort 4th consecutive year in Australia’s Luxury Travel Magazine annual Gold List Awards. The Likuliku Lagoon Resort is the first and only resort in Fiji with overwater bungalows and the room tariff includes amazing gourmet meals.   While at Likuliku, they enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding.  We’ve paired this with Matangi Private Island for them, our favorite Fiji beach resort. They also got to experience great outdoor adventures like snorkeling, hiking to a waterfall, a local visit to a Fijian village and a tour to a Pearl Farm.  It is also features Horseshoe Bay listed in “1,000 Places to See Before You Die”.  They ended their Matangi stay with a dive at the Somo Somo Straits so they could enjoy the soft coral capital of the world.  This overwater bungalows vacation had two of the most romantic, private adults only resorts in Fiji with great beaches, food that’s to-die-for, and ample private moments for the two of them to be alone.
