Children are invited to explore their very own personal paradise with a tailor made children's program, from visiting the petting farm, to picking their fruits and vegetables to create their own lunch, and an array of water activities.
The resorts chefs will take the children on a private tour through the 85 percent self-sustainable farm, where they will get the chance to pet the piglets, pick the peas and taste the tomatoes, as well as enjoy fresh mangos, papaya and coconut milk. Following the tour, they can use all of their own selected ingredients to whisk up their very own culinary masterpiece with Executive Chef Anthony Healy.
Offering a whole host of sporting activities and water adventures, children will be entertained for hours, with tubing, knee boarding, waterskiing, sailing and snorkeling. Those just learning to dive can explore the hidden world under the sea with the Bubblemaker. Families can also explore the depths of the island on a guided mountain bike tour or nature walk, or take a ride along the sandy beaches on one of the island's eight horses.
Children can discover a scented playground and create their very own spa treats using fresh ingredients from the garden, including coconuts and an assortment of tropical herbs and spices, from vanilla, lemongrass and ginger. Come away with personalized soaps, lotions and oils, serving as the perfect present.
Guests can spend the afternoon delving into local traditions at the Fijian Cultural Village, enjoying weaving and carving and whisking up typical Fijian cuisine in the “Lovo” (Fijian for ground oven). To experience even more of magical Fiji, Laucala can arrange a half day excursion to The Tavoro Waterfalls, a spectacular series of three waterfalls nestled within the Bouma National Heritage Park, which sits on the eastern side of Taveuni Island. Enjoy views of the stunning landscape, tire the children out with some active climbing and swim in the incredible surroundings. Prices begin from $372 per trip, including transportation and lunch prepared by Laucala Island's Chef Healy.
While children enjoy the vast amount of activities on the island, parents can revel in luxury with the ultimate pampering sessions. The traditional Fijian Bobo massage is perfect for couples to enjoy the view of the amazing turquoise sea and natural green lush surrounding the island together. This healing treatment is passed down through generations as part of a deep-rooted culture. Infused coconut oils create a state of relaxation, relieving tension, aches and stress. Balancing body and spirit, the gentle Bobo massage increases circulation and draws out toxins to improve overall health and well-being.
For parents wishing to enjoy some alone time, Laucala Island offers a qualified nanny service available at all times, and a dedicated Kid's Club where young guests can engage in numerous arts and craft activities, or simply watch a movie while enjoying their favorite Fijian snack.
