The private island resort has undergone a soft refurbishment, resulting in a contemporary yet cosy  feel at the Fiji holiday favourite

Laucala Island, an exclusive private island in the Fijian Pacific archipelago, has unveiled a stylish interior makeover.

Led by interior design Lynne Hunt of Lynne Hunt London, who worked on the resort’s initial design and launch a decade ago, the refreshed interior calls on the Fijian environment with references to the tropical country’s flora and fauna, the blue water directly in front of the resort and the warm, golden sunsets guests are treated to nightly.

Poolside, the resort has introduced s a lagoon pool canopy with oversized beach beds on hand for guests to relax in, and at the casual Beach Bar, now with a wood-fired pizza oven, there are new sunken seated areas with fire pits positioned right on the sand, where guests can settle in to watch the sunset. Chill-out zones have also been introduced around the perimeter of the lagoon for guests to enjoy a casual lounge-style dining experience.

At the more premium end of the resort is Rock Lounge, which has been redesigned to create a laid-back luxe feel. Contemporary teardrop pendant lights with a warm red hue meld with earthy décor like stone stools, root tree tables and wicker chairs, and with the bar’s position on top of a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean, it’s the best spot for a pre-dinner drink.

The resort villas themselves have also received some new additions, such as oversized day beds at the villas along the private beaches and decks, updated soft furnishings and new furniture and lighting.

Laucala is set on a private island of 3,200 exclusive acres in the Fijian Pacific archipelago, surrounded by coconut plantations, sandy beaches, turquoise lagoons and lush mountains. The exclusive resort features just 25 villas and is all-inclusive.
