Blue Lagoon Beach Resort is a picturesque tropical island resort offering unbelievably blue waters and a focus on Fijian culture. If you are looking for excellent service, natural beauty, and an intimate overall experience – this resort is for you.
Nacula Island, Yasawa, Fiji
The resort has a variety of rooms and suites. General rooms range from the Bula Lodge to luxurious Private Beachfront Villas. ‘Charlie’s Dormitory’ is also available as a ‘hostel’ option.
We stayed in one of the Deluxe One Bedroom Garden Villas for X4 nights. The room was very spacious, clean and brightly decorated – though this did not come across as garish. We had a lovely outdoor bathroom with a shower, which was completely private from the other villas; despite being open air. We also had a front porch with cushioned seating, though we did not utilise this as the beachfront was far more appealing to us!
The villa was cleaned every day, with fresh flowers decorating the bed and foot spa (preventing you from bringing sand inside). There was functioning A/C, a safe, and free WiFi.
There is only one place to eat and drink in this resort, the Blue Lagoon Bar & Restaurant. Meal plans are compulsory (a common theme amongst Fijian island resorts) and when we stayed, the plan equated to 85 NZD Per Person, per day for your three meals, and any drinks were to be purchased an additional cost.
Breakfast provides options for all. Eggs of any kind are prepared upon request in the outdoor kitchen, whilst an assortment of cereals and fruits are laid out buffet style. Teas, coffees and fruit juices are included as part of the breakfast meal plan.
Every single member of staff we encountered was absolutely delightful. From the welcoming introductory talk, the hilarious gentlemen on the bar, the charming ladies who I chatted with as they picked out flowers every morning – everyone helped to make our stay incredible. And I can be a pretty tough guest to win over!!
Pool: The main pool area is right next to the bar/restaurant and is family-friendly. Whilst there are also sun loungers along the beach and I’m typically loyal to the beachfront… It was actually a lot more relaxing to while away the hours on the comfy double mattress style pool loungers than on the sloping beach.
Spa: My other half kindly booked me in for a full body massage and I have to say, it was one of the best I have ever had. It was in an open-air tiki-style hut and was an amazing price for the service provided, I would definitely recommend! After this massage, I went back to my room to shower and change before dinner. Before sitting down for a delicious meal, I stopped at the beach to watch the sunset. Does life get much better than that?
Other: Although I didn’t partake in the nanny/babysitting services, I know there was a lot on offer which is great if you’re a family with young children. On another note, there were additional romantic activities you could book in for such as a private beachfront dinner (we saw someone else’s being set up and it looked gorgeous) – just chat with the team and I’m sure they’ll be able to tell you more than I can!
Kayaking: We took out a couple of kayaks one afternoon which is a great free perk – though I’m really terrible at kayaking so I wasn’t the biggest fan!
Fishing: Whilst I was massaged, my other half was taken out for the afternoon to go handline fishing. You do have to pay for this activity but it was around 45 Fijian dollars (which is around 15 pounds). Though he wasn’t the most successful fisher, he thoroughly enjoyed his time out on the water. Plus, he had a great laugh with the local experts as they tried to teach him.
Evening Entertainment: There is a new activity every evening. This ranges from traditional Fijian singing and dancing to quiz nights and Kava ceremonies.
Culture: Blue Lagoon Beach Resort has a strong affinity to Fijian culture and offers visits to the local village, Church, and school.
Our trip to Blue Lagoon Beach Resort was absolutely amazing. Everything was just stunning, particularly our room. But we mostly loved the natural beauty of the island. We just couldn’t help but stop and stare at the glorious sunsets over the ocean each and every evening. Honestly, we could not have asked for a more relaxing or gorgeous place to spend a few days and I would 100% return… If only it wasn’t so far from London!
If you’re looking for an equally impressive Fijian resort, I highly recommend sister property Paradise Cove. It’s exquisite, though slightly more expensive and more formal. You can read the full review here: Paradise Cove Resort
