Lalati Resort is under new ownership and they are great. The bures are huge
and well appointed and staff is super friendly. Food is 4 star out of
5...with some meals surpassing that. We had some rain the first day and sun
after that. We LOVED the diving on coral heads in Beqa Lagoon. Corals, sea
fans and small fish life were better than anywhere we have ever dived, with
exception of Vietnam a long time ago.  The resort location is in a small
bay so kayaking, snorkeling and swimming are excellent. No real beach right
at resort, but you can walk to a beautiful one in 10 minutes...or kayak to
one across the bay. Nice swimming poll and deck. New owner is doing a great
job sprucing things up and the Fijian resort manager, Olly, is a warm and
special person. Two Brit managers, Chris and Sara, are also wonderful and
attentive. 

We only dove the coral heads because we were there for 3 nights, so do not
know what other scuba opportunities exist. However, there is a well
advertised shark dive with big sharks about 45 minutes away by boat. Did
not have time to do it.

There appear to be interesting hiking and kayaking opportunities around the
island, and the resort will customize anything you want. 
We will definitely go back. It is a first class operation all the way....in
a stunningly beautiful location.
