It’s a good time to explore today

Deserted island looks good enough to camp on.

Deserted island looks good enough to camp on.

To celebrate today’s expected high of 17 celsius in the city of Toronto, I leave you with a photo that was taken on the waters of the South Pacific. It’s of an island that looks somewhat deserted, but I’m sure is home to many tourists throughout the day. I love the hills on either side of the island, with that dip in the middle leading to all the palm trees. It’s a small island but I’m sure if I were to land there with my camera, I could spend hours taking pictures of anything and everything.

It may not be this pretty outside in the city, but it’s day’s like today that sure make you want to just go out and explore.

Let’s Explore

Exploration is key to making great images as it gives you a chance to not only see the city you live in, but to also see it from a different perspective. Sure, we walk by that famous building everyday on our way to work, but when we go there specifically to explore the area, you’ll find that you’ll see things you may have missed during your commute to work. It’s things like this that keep your eyes sharp, your mind in a constant state of wanderlust, and ultimately improve your photography through experience. And isn’t that what you want to do?

Be well my friends!

Likuliku Lagoon Resort

Part of my Fijiweek of blog posts, here’s a review of Fiji’s 5-star Likuliku Lagoon Resort, which I was very fortunate to visit last year. For additional photos of Fiji and its beauty, please head over to my Fantastic Fiji gallery.

Welcome to Likuliku Lagoon Resort

Welcome to Likuliku Lagoon Resort

Even before stepping onto the island, you know you’re in for a treat. With guitar in hand, and a trio of singers welcoming you as your boat approaches the beach, you’ve come to a paradise island, leaving any stress and worries behind you in that gentle breeze of the south pacific.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort is just that. Paradise. Situated on the northwest edge of Malolo Island, the only way to get here is by boat (speedboat or catamaran), a seaplane, or via a private helicopter. Yes, this resort has its own helipad. At about 25km away from Port Denarau on the main island of Fiji, a direct catamaran trip will take you there in 55min, or in about 2 hours via stops at other island resorts. If you want a free tour of the surrounding islands of Fiji, opt for the indirect trip and relax for the 2 hours. It’s well worth it just for the sights.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a couples-only resort (no children under the age of 17), managed by a 100% Fijian-owned company, Ahura Resorts, which also manages the neighbouring resort for families, Malolo Island Resort, located just a stone’s throw away. Likuliku Lagoon Resort has 45 bures in all: 10 Overwater, 18 Deluxe Beachfront, 14 Beachfront, and 3 Garden Beachfronts.

Upon arrival, you are escorted off the boat and taken to the lobby where you are seated separately from other parties, and welcomed with a refreshing tropical drink and traditional Fijian handmade necklace. I sat there in the lobby admiring the openness and the calmness of the island, and instantly knew it was going to be a great six days ahead of us.

The Entrance

I have to note this in its own section because I thought it added so much to the overall impression of each bure that we stayed in. Upon entering the bure, the staff at Likuliku Lagoon Resort make it so that it’s as inviting and cozy for their guests as possible. And by this, I mean upon entering, rather than feeling like you are entering in another hotel room, it feels like you’re almost entering in someone’s abode—a rather nice one at that. Traditional Fijian music is playing softly in the background, lights are dimly lit, and windows are open a touch. They all add to the beautiful ambiance that welcomes you as you open that door for the first time. It’s a small touch, but one that made a great impression on us.

What a warm welcome to your room!

Deluxe Beachfront Bure

We booked the first three nights of our stay in one of Likuliku Lagoon Resort’s spacious Deluxe Beachfront Bure. Before booking, I checked the layout of the resort online, and requested to have a bure in this general area. While they wouldn’t guarantee anything, they said they would accommodate as best as they can. And they did. The bure was right in the area that I had asked for.

These Deluxe Beachfront Bures are more than one can ask for. Divided into two sections, on the outside directly fronting the beach, each comes with a private plunge pool and a covered daybed spanning 64 sq. ft. of space. The 237 sq. ft. deck is also more than one can ask for, if you like to just rest on one of their lounge chairs. The inside of the bure, at 613 sq. ft., is a spacious and luxuriously appointed suite with a queen sized bed, oversized couches with plenty of room to lounge around on, and a bathroom suite fit for royalty that comes with a large private outdoor shower space—an indoor shower is also included, but nothing says paradise than showering in the outdoors!

Each bure has enough privacy around them that you don’t feel too crowded at all. With the beach being literally steps away, there’s really not much more that a couple could ask for in a beachfront bure.

The Cookie Jar

When we first arrived at the bure, the staff kindly gave us a tour. He also mentioned that there is a cookie jar in the cupboard that will be replenished on a daily basis. I didn’t think twice of this, until I had one of those cookies. They were oh so heavenly good. I don’t know whether it was the sweetness of the cookie playing against the saltiness of the sea water, or whether Fijian flour is different from ours in Canada, but you for sure could not just stop at one. That’s when I realized it actually would be necessary to replenish them daily!

The View

While it was overcast for the first two and a half days into our trip, it did manage to clear up nearing the end of our stay in this bure. Despite this, I remember the sunset one evening on a cloudy day was one of the most majestic I’ve seen yet. These colours engulfed the entire landscape all around you. Everything turned to an orange-red hue as if you were wearing some sort of filtered sunglasses. The only other time I’ve ever seen such a beautiful sunset was on Phi Phi Island in Thailand.

Overwater Bure

We had thought our stay at Likuliku Lagoon Resort couldn’t get any better with the Deluxe Beachfront Bures, but we were sorely mistaken. These overwater bungalows are the only overwater bures in all of Fiji, and they will surpass almost anybody’s expectations of a luxury stay in Fiji.

At 646 sq. ft., the suite is clean, updated, and has everything you want, including a glass floor window that allows you to see the waters at night. Upon entering the suite, the view from the window directly in front of you reminds you that you are in paradise. Walk to the left, and you have a “bathroom pavilian” as they like to call it, that is almost half the size of the bedroom area. Step over to your right, and your king-sized bed is calling for you. If these don’t whet your paradise-seeking soul, the accordion-style floor to ceiling windows may. It opens fully to so you can enjoy the beauty of Fiji right from within—but who would want to stay there when you have your own private 334 sq. ft. terrace with steps going directly down to the sea.

Did I mention there’s an outdoor open shower space midway down the stairs? There’s no better way to wash that salt water off of you after a morning of snorkelling by the reefs.

There are no daily-replenishing cookie jars here, but a daily canape with fresh fruit delivered to your overwater bure satiates your afternoon sweet-tooth. These were so good that even after being so full from lunch, we couldn’t let them go to waste.

The Cuisine

The chef at Likuliku Lagoon Resort strives for only the best. Executive chef Ihaka Peri showed us his masterpieces and creativity with daily changing menus, and several choices for lunch and dinner—he kept surprising us meal after meal using only the finest of Fijian and international ingredients. One might be hard-pressed about meals at all-inclusive resorts, but rest assured, you are in good hands at Likuliku Lagoon Resort. It is one of the best culinary experiences I’ve had at any resort.

Here’s just a sampling of what I took with my iPhone 5s. These dishes taste better than they look here! Click on the image for a larger and more colourful version!

Likuliku Lagoon Cuisine

I have to mention one particular item they offered at the breakfast buffet table that did not go unnoticed. My wife and I have been accustomed to making our own health drinks in the morning, so it came as a pleasant surprise that they had a fully equipped juicer from http://juicingdaily.net/ with a myriad of ingredients laid out on the table for you to choose and juice yourself. It may not be anything exciting for most, but added touches like this are what makes Likuliku Lagoon Resort so memorable.

And it was really useful, since is really important for me and my family to keep a good health, we always try to take the best choices, as having a good diet or doing regular exercise, and we even get supplements online, this can be used for uric acid support so we have good levels of uric acid in our bodies and remain healthy.

Things to do

With a resort like this to spoil you all day, you may not wish to even leave your bures. But for those that seek adventure, there are many things on the list—many of which are free. Snorkelling and kayaking rentals are included with your rooms—and you can easily spend all day doing both of these. Just don’t forget that sunscreen! There are other paid activities like daytrips to other nearby islands, but we just opted for a complimentary guided kayaking trip to Bird Island, which is fittingly named because of all the seagulls that rest there.

You can also take hikes around the area, bringing you to some breathtaking vistas of Likuliku Lagoon Resort, or head over to the mangroves on the opposite side, closer to Malolo Island Resort. Or for those who just want to relax, there’s always their Horizon Edge pool just around the corner. The options are aplenty and will surely please the adventure-seeker inside us all.

The Sunsets

Fiji is well known to have one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Sure enough, the sunsets did not disappoint while I was there. Vibrant colours filled the air and sky, creating breathtaking scenery for quite a long period. These photos really don’t do it any justice as you can’t feel the sun engulf you in its glow.

Viseisei Village

Viseisei Village is the oldest settlement in Fiji, located about 12km. north of Nadi. It’s a great little village that will let you experience what a traditional Fiji village is like. Most indigenous Fijians still live in villages similar to this, and make their living off the land and sea.

Historically, the first Melanesians were known to land around here, just 1km North at Vuda Point. Some of the historic bures in this village are still used to this day for important occasions.

Dress appropriately if you come here, as you are required to cover your shoulders and knees, and to remove your hat.

The Vuda Lookout

The Vuda lookout stands atop Fiji giving you a breathtaking panorama of the island. It is a private lookout therefore only select tours are allowed up to this viewpoint.

Mind your head

It’s a great place to see the island, mountain ranges, and surrounding areas. From what I remember, you’re able to get a glimpse of the Nadi Bay and the Yasawa Group of Islands on a clear day.

Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple

Because we took the morning tour, our package also included a visit to the local market (previous post) and the Nadi temple. The Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple is the largest Hindu temple in the Southern hemisphere. Compared to its surroundings, its colours and textures literally pop out at you, begging for a visit.

The temple is dedicated to the deity Murugan, and with intricate illustrations on the ceilings and walls, it’s a unique temple to visit that is well worth the trip if you’re ever in the area. The Dravidian architecture of the temple is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and is said to be rarely seen outside of India.

As it is a Holy Shrine, there are things that one must abide by. I wasn’t able to take any photographs within the temple, women had to be properly covered, and we had to remove our shoes before entering. This last part made for an interesting walk to the temple as the Fijian sun made the pathway beneath scorching hot—so hot that you could not stand there for more than 3 seconds!

The Fruit and Vegetable Market

The tour package we opted for was called the Vuda Lookout Tour. It took us to the Vuda lookout, Viseisei Village, The Garden of the Sleeping Giants, the fruit and vegetable market, and into Nadi to see the Hindu temple. The trip to the fruit market and Nadi temple is only included in the morning tour, so we opted to do that one since our flight from Los Angeles arrived in Fiji at 5am. We were picked up at our hotel at 8am, where our day began.

The Fruit and Vegetable Market

When you go to any foreign country, a visit to the local market is something that can open your eyes to its culture and cuisine. There are so many different things to look at, at a market that you can easily spend an afternoon wondering what all of these intriguing items are used for.

Our stop at the local food market was brief, but insightful. Our guide told us the many things that they use for their meals, showed us some plants, and answered any questions we had. The traditional Fijian root vegetable that I talked about in my post from the trek to Mt. Batilamu is shown below. It is bland on its own, but goes really well with side dishes. It is equivalent to rice and potatoes, in a way.

Hiking Mt. Batilamu

A full day hiking tour up Mt. Batilamu (1195m) in Koroyanitu National Heritage Park is another great way to see the beauty of Fiji. There are several companies that offer this, so take your pic!

George

I went with a tour organizer by the name of George, whom was highly recommended on tripadvisor.com. We were quoted FJ$150 per person for pickup and drop-off from our hotel, the park entrance fee, to trek to the waterfalls, traditional Fijian lunch, and an additional FJ$20 per person to go up to the peak of Mt. Batilamu. We opted for the peak, so paid a total of FJ$340 for the both of us.

George picked us up from our hotel in his luxury SUV and started driving to what we thought would be our starting point for the trek. What great service, we thought! After 20min. or so of driving, we ended up at his house! He welcomed us into his covered porch, where he had us sign a guestbook and waiver signing our lives away (really!). At this point, we waited for a while until another pickup truck came. This one was significantly more beat up than the last one, so we knew this one had to be the one to take us to the base of the mountains. We used the time in the ride to read up on how to use our new night vision binoculars in case we got caught in darkness. We like to be prepared for such things.

The drive was actually quite fun. Going through local streets, seeing local Fijian activities as we passed by, I actually thought this was a great way to see what the real Fiji was all about. At one point we stopped on the side of an inclined slope and just waited there for a while. When asked what we were doing there, the driver let us know that the truck had overheated and that he was waiting for another vehicle to come and drive us the rest of the way!

The truck broke down on our way to the base of Mt. Batilamu. George is wearing the earpiece.

The new truck eventually came and the small town tour ended as we turned a road and started making our trek on the bumpy unpaved road to the base of the mountains. After some time, we arrived at a small village, where we were greeted by the locals.

Abaca Village

A shy child slowly made his way to us, curious about my iPhone. He swiped left and right, seemingly amused at what it was doing. Our guide eventually came out from one of the bures, and introduced himself, at which point we started our trek.

This cute little boy was so curious about my iPhone

It wasn’t until a few years back that one was able to go up the mountains without a guide. But due to some unfortunate circumstances, a guide is now necessary for anybody to go up the mountains. And the importance of a guide was evident as soon as we started since he led us through thick brushes and fields where there were no seemingly obvious paths to follow—we would have been completely lost without his guidance!

The View

Taking care not to overwork ourselves in the Fijian sun, we took a number of breaks throughout, at which point we could admire the beauty of the natural surroundings. We eventually made it to the highest point of our trek, which was some 900m above sea level. The view was fantastic from up there, and had it not been for the low-laying clouds, we would have been able to see more of the distant islands that Fiji is loved for. The guide was worried that rain would eventually be on its way.

On our way back down, we made a stop to the waterfalls (this was an optional route and cost an additional $20 per person) since the rain was still some time away. The falls were tall, beautiful, and very refreshing as we welcomed the waters after a long day of hiking to the top.

As a side note, this is where we unknowingly got our backpacks searched, and money taken from our wallets. We weren’t sure what was going on at the time, but decided to not make a commotion out of this since it was getting dark and we needed our way back to the village!

We eventually made it back to the village, where (a late) lunch was ready for us. I don’t recall the name of the vegetable that they served us, but the white, bland tasting root vegetable was actually quite tasty when eaten with other side dishes. It was the Fijian’s version of rice or potatoes.

The drive back to the tour organizer’s home was less eventful, but we made it before the weather got any worse. We signed the guestbook commenting like other tourists how wonderful the tour had been.

The Theft

Not to sour the tour by any means, I did email George back after I returned home, and explained to him what had happened with our cash. He was shocked to hear the news, and immediately involved the local police. After a few emails going back and forth, he told us the guide was found (after he went into hiding), and was arrested. The guide admitted to stealing our money, but only admitted to stealing a fraction of what was actually taken.

Our money was never returned to us, but that’s ok as I wasn’t expecting to get it back anyway. I was more comforted at the fact that nothing else was taken at that point since there were more valuable and more difficult things to replace than cash.

Final Thoughts

Despite this, I would recommend the hike to anybody wanting to go—just be cautious of your belongings, and always be on the lookout if you need to depart from it. Better yet, just don’t bring anything of importance with you to the trek. The scenic views and the natural landscapes of Fiji are far more worthy of your time than worrying about something you can get more of from the local bank.

The Garden of the Sleeping Giants

The Garden of the Sleeping Giants sits on the foothills of the Naosori Highlands, and is home to Fiji’s largest orchid collection. Another hidden gem surrounded by the rich forestry that Fiji has to offer, it’s a great escape and calming walk that shouldn’t be missed. If you want to have a garden like this, then you are going to need a great landscaping service like UMOW in Austin.

The History

Started in 1977 by the late Raymond Burr of Perry Mason fame, it was originally created to house his personal orchid collection. It has since grown to become one of the most popular attractions in the area, now housing more than two thousand different kinds of orchids, spanning 20 hectares.

Walking at your own pace through this garden can be relaxing yet captivating, as you soak in the natural sounds and scents of your surroundings. I didn’t realize it at the time, but you are more than welcome to have a guide come with you, explaining to you the different flowers that you encounter. The garden is also full of beautiful lily ponds. After our walk, we were given a most refreshing juice to drink and further relax in the shade.

I’m not the most enthusiastic person when it comes to flowers, but I have to admit, I did enjoy this particular garden! If you’re ever in the area, be sure to make a stop by the Garden of the Sleeping Giants to soak in one of Fiji’s hidden treasures.

Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool

Reception is nicely decorated.

Rated 4.5/5 on Tripadvisor and also highly recommended on other review sites, there’s no reason not to take this tour if you’re ever in the Nadi region of Fiji. Situated halfway between Nadi and Lautoka on the western half of the main island of Fiji, surrounded by the lush landscapes of the Sabeto Valley, the Sabeto mud bath is thought to have therapeutic properties and is a great way to enjoy the Fijian culture.

The lush green landscape itself is enough to make you relax.

The Deal

My wife and I were there during the non-peak season (February), and so were the only ones there during our tour. Again being welcomed with a warm smile, the guide helped us “get our mud on” making sure no part was missed. The mud itself was warm, gooey, and somewhat refreshing.

Taking handfuls of mud from a can and mud pool and slathering it on yourself, and throwing it at your partner can be rewarding—I wondered if this is what they meant about it being a therapeutic mud bath.

Our guide was even having a good time himself, as he watched us play in the mud. He grabbed my iPhone and started taking random pictures of us so that we can always reflect on this time should we ever need more “therapy” back home.

Once the mud had dried on us, we were escorted to the first of three pools ranging in temperature from 60°C to warm. This was where we washed ourselves clean. Perhaps it really was the mud, or the temperatures of the pools varying in warmth, but it was quite rejuvenating coming out of the last pool.

After you clean yourself up, you get the opportunity to see and buy local arts and crafts from multiple vendors who line their goods on the table, sitting on the sidelines. They make for great souvenirs to take home.

While we were the only ones there, peak season will have you share the mud bath experience with a group of strangers, which in itself can be a socially enriching experience as well. Be sure to come out to this hidden gem if you’re ever in the Nadi area of Fiji.
