Mice Net : February 2009
educational for some pampering by Senikai Spas who offered the ultimate floating spa experience on board with massages. Cruising in comfort and style on passage to Likuliku Lagoon Resort, there was crystal blue water as far as the eye could see. We were all impressed with the scenery, but what really had us excited was when we donned our goggles and went overboard. An underwater paradise filled with tropical fish of all sizes, shapes and colours – all inches from your face - had everyone in wonder. The crew later delighted us some more with a delicious BBQ and salad buffet lunch. It wasn’t long before we spotted the visually stunning Likuliku Lagoon Resort. Likuliku, meaning "calm waters" is Fiji's newest and most unique luxury resort with the first over- water bungalows including glass viewing hatches to the ocean below. The 45 bures all offer mesmerising views of the coral lagoon and ocean with each one featuring king size beds plus private decks complete with luxurious day beds and plunge pools. This must be heaven. If I had sent an email at that moment, it would have read: "Lost in paradise, please don't send help”! With afternoon cocktails at the Masima Island Bar we all watched the sun slip quietly into the deep blue before enjoying an unforgettable culinary experience. The night ended with a colourful showcase of authentic singing and dancing by the locals. Likuliku is a fantastic incentive destination for small groups of up to 30 or exclusively for 90. Just 25 kilometres from Nadi you can get there by helicopter, seaplane, fast catamaran or private speedboat. Day 3 After a delicious breakfast we caught a fast cat back to Port Denarau Marina and enjoyed a food feast at Fiji’s only Hard Rock Café. Following lunch we all joined in a mini sample of the Discover Fiji “Amazing Race” Car Rally, prepared by DMC Pacific Destinationz, a fun team activity venturing into Fiji’s culture, traditions and lifestyle first-hand. We experienced a south Indian temple and Nadi’s vibrant market before finishing off with a visit to a local village to partake in a kava ceremony. After a couple of kavas we all kicked back quite nicely in an anaesthetised state for the afternoon at the Radisson with massages at their Harmony Spa Retreat and swimming in their main pool which fronts onto the beach. With its large sails for sun protection and swim up bar, where you could find a few of us quenching our thirst on their signature cocktail "Caiprioska", this is a highlight of the resort. Dining options are aplenty at the Radisson with several on-site options. Our final night dinner was very special indeed when we all got our feet wet experiencing "Lomani Wai in the Water" an exquisite three-course meal island-style set completely in the water. Magical! Day 4 Up bright and early on our last morning, we were all reluctant to bid Fiji farewell after a most rewarding experience. The last Isa Lai (farewell) song was quite emotional. The Fijians’ warmth, wide smiles and culture will embrace and compel you to return, and all the more reason with Fiji’s two newest inspiring resorts that are ready, willing and waiting to make sure your delegates are entertained, relaxed and rewarded… VINAKA SOTA TALE (Thank you, till we meet again). mice.net 89 mice.net 89
