Due to a combination of ownership issues and lack of marketing this resort has to be sold. The owner is up front and advises that the resort is currently trading at a loss and money needs to be spent on basic infrastructure issues but you will never ever get an opportunity to purchase a resort of this size and potential for the asking price of FJ$2.95m, (approx. NZ$2.1, US$1.375m, AUD$1.96m) plus vat, if any. A valuation is available and shows the replacement value in excess of FJ$7m, (approx. NZ$4.9m, US$3.3m, AUD$4.6m). Exchange rate as at 6 May 2019.
So if you are the adventurous type, up for a challenge and have the resources to pick this resort up by its shoe laces, you will end up with a very valuable asset.
Lalati Resort & Spa is located on mystical Bega Island, sitting on just over 7 absolute oceanfront acres of native lease land and backed by thick, verdant rainforest. Located on palm-fringed shores, it sits at the mouth of pristine Malumu Bay, in the heart of the world famous Bega Lagoon. It is an easy, 25-minute boat ride from Pacific Harbour, on Fiji's main island.
As a 4-star, eco conscious and environmentally friendly resort, Lalati was purposefully constructed to blend with the natural environment and beautiful natural surroundings.
All 17 villas and both suites are air conditioned. 12 of the villas and the premier Beachfront Honeymoon Suite, sit a stone's throw from the sea with sea views. The remaining three have partial-sea and beautiful garden views, yet are a mere 60-75 metres from the sea.
The resort's main building, built in the majestic Fijian chiefly style, with soaring stunning beams and woven ceilings, houses the restaurant, bar and gift shop, as well as a fully equipped commercial kitchen.
The resort has its own dive and activities centre (Blue Starfish Dive & Activities Centre) and offers a range of water sports equipment and organizes numerous adventure activities daily. They are a fully certified PADI 5-Star Dive Centre and offer Nitrox diving to those divers who request it
