In the world of the mega rich, there are ballers, and then there are BALLERS. Just when you think you’re successful, with a few million in the bank, there are those who are still livin’ on a much larger level who remind you that you still have a ways to go. The people who get approved to visit Laucala Islands are THOSE kinds of people. But hey, it’s good to know what’s out there so you get a sense of how large and in charge you really are. Flight time from Dallas is about 20 hours and some change.
A private island refuge in the South Pacific, Laucala unites dramatic rainforest-laced landscapes and white sandy beaches with unparalleled levels of luxury and privacy.
No expense has been spared at the exclusive tropical hideaway, where 25 Fijian-styled villas are set amid coconut plantations, beside deserted beaches and atop the island’s volcanic mountains, overlooking fertile coral reefs and endless jungle.
Style and sustainability go hand in hand throughout, from the natural fibres and woods used in design to the wild orchids harvested in gardens and organic produce grown on island farms.
Set over 1,400 hectares, Laucala epitomises the seclusion and graceful hospitality for which the Fijian archipelago is famed.
Laucala Island is pleasantly located in the South Sea archipelago of Fiji, that island chain famous for its immaculate charm and beauty. Not many people know of it, including many well-traveled people. As South Seas Adventures puts it:
Laucala Island is a perfect island escape, for those who seek the total luxury of privacy and space, relaxing ambience, enjoying culinary delicacies, yet being sportive active. Anything is possible on Laucala – playing a round of golf, cycling the island, game fishing, surfing, diving or sailing the turquoise waters or being pampered in the spa.
Only twenty-five villas widely spread on the northern tip of the island, each with its own swimming pool, leaving ample space giving the most privacy you can imagine. Seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living creates an inspiringly relaxed yet luxurious atmosphere.
Not only are we a resort – we set a high value in taking a holistic approach of self sustainability in growing all fruits and vegetables on our own farms; breeding poultry and cattle, making our own honey and bottling the purest volcanic mineral water, baking our own breads – providing the best quality of produce possible for our restaurants.
According to legend (well, factual legend), the late mega wealthy publisher of Forbes Magazine, Malcolm Forbes, chose this place as his dream oasis and is buried here.
A travel special on AWE channel said that if you have to ask, then you can’t afford it. And even if you could, you have to apply to own property on it or even visit; the things people do for the allure of exclusivity. But that’s how it goes sometimes in the world of luxury. Of course, there’s always a way where there is the will, so be sure to follow your travel dreams, no matter where they take you.
