Fiji has long been known for its grand resorts, but Laucala, a private island getaway in the northeast of the archipelago, raises the bar on excess. Just 25 distinctive bungalows are tucked across this 12-square-kilometer isle, each equipped with a stunning infinity pool mere steps from a private beach. With a requisite high-end spa, four fine-dining venues, 18 holes of golf, horseback riding, and any manner of water sports, Laucala seems to imply that the only bounds to your bliss is your imagination. Then again, with a US$3,600 per person per night price tag and a minimum four-night stay, there’s one other limit you might want to consider: your credit (679/888-0077; laucala.com; doubles from US$3,600, all-inclusive).
