If you want to observe Mid-Autumn Festival in grand style, gather the clan and fly out to Fiji to celebrate under the biggest, brightest moon of the year on the paradise isle of Laucala. One of the world’s most luxurious private island hideaways in the world, the resort can now be booked in its entirety for US$170,000* per night, for a minimum of five nights – which comes to US$850,000**.
A jewel in the South Pacific Ocean, with luscious rainforests, white beaches and azure ocean views, the luxury resort is the kind of playground that makes for unforgettable holidays. It accommodates up to 72 people in its 25 one, two and three bedroom private pool villas. Meals and drinks are included at all five of the island’s world-class restaurants and bars, but guests can also order tailor made menus by the island’s master chef. A special picnic under the moon will be arranged on the night of the festival.
The mega buy-out package also includes a wide range of sport and leisure activities — from horseback riding along the pristine sandy beach, deep sea diving, jet skiing, cruising, to the world’s most exclusive underwater voyage on the island’s DeepFlight Super Falcon submarine. Each guest will receive a 90-minute spa massage. Group activities range from cooking classes, yoga sessions, to lessons on the 18-hole championship golf course.
If you’re a little short of US$850,000, however, daily rates start from US$4,800 USD per night for a one bedroom villa for two adults.
*All rates are subject to local government taxes of 25%
** Transportation from Nadi International Airport to Laucala’s private airstrip is excluded in the total buy-out price. It is US$600 per person each way (children aged 3-11, US$300) plus 25% tax, to fly the 50-minute distance in the resort’s King Air plane.
