Amidst dramatic rainforest-laced landscapes and coconut plantations, the resort is 80 percent self-sustainable and prides itself on an integral philosophy, incorporating elements of the entire island into each guest's experience, from island-made spa products to cuisine derived from indigenous plants, fruit and aquatic life. Red Bull, the drink of adventure, has surely inspired the plethora of water adventure activities offered at Laucala Island.
