Likuliku Lagoon Resort, Fiji
Likuliku Lagoon Resort is an adults-only overwater bungalow luxury resort located on Malolo Island in the Mamanuca island group. With its name meaning “calm waters,” Likuliku offers breathtaking ocean views and incredible snorkeling, due in part to the fact that it’s surrounded by a protected marine sanctuary. Likuliku Lagoon is also a designated sea turtle breeding area and in certain seasons you’ll see nesting activity on the sand and see the turtles swimming in the lagoon.
Likuliku is a 100% Fijian owned family business that provides an educational fund for the landowners and a number of flora and fauna educational initiatives including turtle conservation, coral transplanting, and invasive Crown of Thorns eradication.
