LLR_Pool_40LLR_Overwaters_170I’m excited to be heading off tomorrow to Fiji to try out one of the world’s best resorts,  the newly re-opened Liku Liku Resort.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort reopened on April 22, after being closed for repairs following damage from Cyclone Evan at the end of 2012. 

Liku Liku has Fiji’s first and only only overwater bungalows, something normally associated with the Maldives or Tahiti.

It was recently named Best Overseas Resort in Luxury Travel’s Gold List (for the fourth year in a row) and was also named in the top 10 “Best Luxury Hotels in the South Pacific” in the annual Trip Advisor Travelers’ Choice Awards 2012. Island Magazine lists it amongst the top 20 places in world.

The food is apparently top notch and considered the best in Fiji so I’ll be trying it out and talking to chef.

It’s an upmarket couples resort, no kids allowed. Expensive, but not too expensive, like Tahiti. 

But first, I’ll be staying at the Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa and trying out its WAI ZONE.

The  “Wai Experience” is a whole range of water treatments in the WAI ZONE.

The Wai Zone features water in its three states – gas – the steam room; liquid – the hydrotherapy pool; rain forest shower and solid ice – in the ice room. So you get everything from hot water to ice cold water. Ooh, hope it’s not lijke in Slovakia, where i got blasted with ice cold water out of a high pressure hose at a European style health spa. Not that it would matter in Fiji where it’s nic and warm. 

But more on that tomorrow……
