How to Get There
The love of my life and I went on vacation to this wonderful resort from July 1-7 2018 . We stayed in a deluxe beachfront bure . It is spacious , air conditioned , big comfortable King size bed , and a room with a couch and love seat . It has a large deck facing the waterfront with a plunge pool with jacuzzi jets ( not heated ) and a covered lounge bed outside . It has 2 large separate sink and mirror areas with a separate toilet room and a large walk in shower , For the slightly adventurous , there is an open air shower outside your Bure in the back , it is private and innovative . The Bure's are gorgeous ! There are a total of 46 Bure's at this resort , 10 are over the water type . The over the water type are equally gorgeous , however we decided not to stay in an over the water Bure due to the very changing tide at that time of year . At low tide your deck can be as much as 15 feet above the water ! For an over the water Bure I suggest looking to Bora Bora .
Now let's get to the best parts . The resort is absolutely gorgeous . The pool area is great , always lounge chairs available with a beautiful infinity pool facing the ocean .There is a man-made little island that is reached via an over the water walkway from the lobby that has a wonderful bar area and a dock to snorkel from . You will see an abundance of fish on the coral reef there . Therefore , don't have to get on a boat and leave the resort to snorkel . The snorkel gear is free and the guys at the activity center are extremely friendly and helpful . There are daily excursions ( extra cost ) for snorkeling trips , picnics on a small secluded island and even a 45 minute boat excursion to explore the island where Tom Hanks spent a year in the movie Castaway ! But by far the 2 best things at this resort are the staff and THE FOOD !!!! The Fijian staff at this resort are the nicest , friendliest and most accommodating we have ever encountered ! Every single staff member greets you with a friendly BULA ! and even the groundskeepers try to make sure all your wants and needs are met .
They have a 5 star rated chef make up the menu and the breakfast , lunch and dinner menu selections are taken directly from a top notch restaurant in Paris or New York !!!!! I can truly say BEST FOOD IVE EVER HAD AT ANY HOTEL OR RESORT IN THE WORLD ! The staff at the single restaurant is amazing . The outside tables are in a gorgeous setting and you won't be disappointed in any way .
Can you tell we liked it ? .... Only possible criticisms would be that there are mosquitos and you need to lather up with repellent every time you leave your Bure . The resort does perform a mosquito abatement fogging of the resort twice daily , but we each had 10-20 mosquito bites the week we stayed there . The spa is small , we had a couples massage that was wonderful , but there is no sauna , steam or jacuzzis . The gym is small but adequate .
Overall , it's a GREAT PLACE . Would go there again ANYTIME !
Absolutely outstanding in every way - picture perfect , beautifully appointed sea facing bures with private splash pool and day bed , outstanding food , friendly attentive staff , beautiful day spa , activities including walking , snorkeling , swimming , fishing , trip to local village , kayaking , day trips to other islands ....... we will be back - a fantastic couples retreat , we loved our special time at Likuliku .
This review reflects the many others already posted. Amazing memories with well appointed clean and spacious bures combined with serenity and gourmet food that changed daily. We had a beachfront bure with a pool and daybed and outdoor shower and found it hard to leave to head to the gorgeous outdoor dining space to eat. Loved how the dinner service was treated with respect and guests all took extra care with their dress making the dining experience special every night. Love to go back.
We spent a week at Liku Liku to celebrate our 55th anniversary . That does date us but shows we are not first time travelers . Liku Liku is right at the top of our many destinations . The bure on the beach was spacious and spotless and the meals all first class from the mud crab omelets on . The ever smiling staff remember the names of all guests with a cheery " BULA " The staff choir on Sunday night provided a memorable experience . Simply superb .
We stayed at a couple of resorts in Fiji, and if you love the water, this is the place for you. We've snorkeled Hawaii and the Caribbean, but the snorkeling at Likuliku is amazing. You can literally step right out of your overwater bure and enjoy a reef with more types of fish than you could imagine, sharks (tiny ones!), octopus, stingrays, cuttlefish, and even a cute little sea snake. Truly amazing. The food was gourmet, the service exemplary, and the scenery magnificent.
