Nestled against the hills of Beqa Island, at the mouth of scenic Malumu Bay, sits picturesque Lalati Resort & Spa.
This affordable, small and private, boutique resort provides an outer island experience with easy access to the main island meaning guests have access to a range of activities whilst enjoying their island stay. The 10 acre resort features palm-fringed beachfront and lush tropical gardens, backed by verdant rainforest and is eco-conscious and environmentally friendly.
With 16 individually designed cottages, suites and villas, Lalati Resort & Spa is the perfect option for small groups and individuals looking for an intimate getaway. The resort offers deluxe service, gourmet cuisine and spectacular reefs right on your doorstep.
Lalati Resort & Spa welcomes children aged 12 years and above.
A road transfer from Nadi to the boat dock at Pacific Harbour takes approximately 2.5 hours. From here, you’ll board Lalati’s “water taxi” for a 30 minute ride across to the resort on Beqa Island.
As with most boats in Fiji, Lalati’s vessels may only travel during daylight hours. Because of this, boat pick up and drop off times must coincide with sunrise and sunset times. Arrivals into Nadi airport must be no later than 1:30 pm in order to make the boat transfer before sunset. For departures out of Nadi airport, a 2pm flight is the earliest flight time that can be accommodated.
Gourmet cuisine is served using the freshest local ingredients and the finest imported meats. Dining locations include: the main open air dining bure and bar with inside group tables or private tables; outside deck dining; candlelight poolside dining; beach bonfire barbecues; and beachside dining in the sand, overlooking the sea or private romantic dining on the “Moonlight Pier” – the overwater jetty gazebo.
Complimentary facilities include the horizon pool, jacuzzi, kayaks, snorkeling gear and large lending library. Guests can relax at the Loloma Spa. There is also a Boutique Gift Shop with guest computer, an Activities Bure, a laundry service, and WiFi in the main building.
The Dive Centre offers daily boat dives, Nitrox, scuba gear rental and dive courses.

A kaleidoscope of soft corals abound. You’ll find an amazing biodiversity of colourful reef fish such as angel fish and butterfly fish, groupers and coral cods, sweetlips and batfish plus pelagics- schooling barracuda, big eyed trevally, triggerfish, rays and turtles. Crustaceans big and small can be found. From tiny sea spiders to painted spiny lobsters, vibrant crabs to cleaner shrimp, and the elusive and rare blue ribbon eel.
