The trip from Tucson , AZ took about 22 hours door to door. we arrived in
Nadi at 3:00 am . We slept at the hotel airport for a couple of hours . The
Lalati van picked us up at 6:30 am and we drove
for 2.5 hours then a 20 minute boat ride to the resort. There are no
streets or any vehicles.  The only way to get around is by boat or sea

The resort is awesome! Large , individal bures with very nice finishes. The
landscaping is lush and beautiful .The food is gourmet  and plentiful. 

Lalati has their own dive operation. Over all the diving was nice. 
Bottom times were 50-65 minutes. Most of the diving is on pinnacles at 10 -
30 feet deep. Many different types of  tropical fish and beautiful soft
corals and sea fans.  They served banana bread and hot chocolate during the
surface intervals. For those that didn't want to do a second dive, another
boat would pick them up and take them back to the resort. Very flexible

At lower depths their was evidence of coral damage . There was large amount
of dead coral below 40 feet.  I asked about it but couldn't get an answer.

I would go back in a heart beat !
