Wow, Fiji was a difficult destination for booking … over 300 islands to chose from and one more beautiful than the other. If only we had a couple of years time and our own yacht to explore this tropical island paradise. In the end we decided against a busy island hopping trip and booked a six day super-special-very-last-minute package at the Blue Lagoon Beach Resort instead. After a one-night stopover in Nadi we hopped on the Yasawa Flyer ferry to our resort on Nacula Island in the Yasawa group of islands which had been the filming locations for movies such as “Blue Lagoon” and “Castaway”.
It turned out to be a great decision to stay at one place and we enjoyed our time at the Blue Lagoon so much that we were in no hurry to leave and added two more nights (good thing we hadn’t made any previous plans for the rest of our stay in Fiji 🙂 ). But what is there not to like about a beautiful beachfront villa on a tropical island paradise with good food and friendly staff? Sometimes we just wished for a villa slightly further away from the bustle of the boat landing area disturbing our afternoon hammock siesta 🙂
Part of our last minute special was a lovely champagne and lobster dinner for two by the beach:
.It was so easy to enjoy ourselves at such a beautiful place with some great people we met during our stay.
