LAUCALA ISLAND RESORT
Laucala Island, Fiji
Laucala Island is a small, private oasis lying to the east of Taveuni, Fiji. Just 5km long, it was owned until 2003 by the family of publishing magnate, Malcolm Forbes. The resort has now been transformed by its current owner, Red Bull co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz.
His brief to LHL was to design the interiors of every building on the island – including 25 villas, the Plantation House Restaurant, golf club, pool bar, spa, Sea Grass Lounge and beach bar – and, with architects WATG, to create a truly original, idyllic South Pacific island experience.
