Laucala Island: Melinda Gregor's Favourite Oasis

My own private beach and pool

- simply the best

Laucala is simply the most amazing place I have ever visited. It has everything that I want - a perfect location, fully inclusive, close to home, exquisite food, friendly staff, amazing accommodation and a setting to die for including your very own private pool and beach.

There's even an 18-hole championship golf course designed by one of the world's leading golf course designers, David McLay Kidd. Play on your own or with golf pro, Tony Christie, who has played in three British Opens.

With only 25 luxury residences and over 350 staff on this 12sq km island nothing is ever too much trouble. Relax after your round of golf with a Thai massage in the world-class spa, go snorkelling or diving, or maybe take a horse ride along the beach at sunset. Talking of sunsets, why not take a boat out for a few cocktails? Everything is included at Laucala.

You are provided with your own golf buggy to discover the island - there's a choice of five restaurants as well as some amazing bars like the Rock Lounge perched on a cliff with amazing sunset views (my favourite place). After a few champagnes, there is always someone on hand to take you home.

The island is self-sufficient. They grow their own vegetables and herbs, they have their own cows and chickens and there's even a natural spring. They also make all their own oils, soaps and creams as well.

Laucala Island is located off the north-east coast of Fiji and is a 45-minute flight from Nadi Airport aboard Air Laucala's eight-seater aircraft. It is so close to home, less than five hours from the east coast of Australia, so if you feel you deserve a short break and truly want to be spoilt, you should try five nights. Or perhaps you have a special birthday or anniversary coming up?

I did not want to leave this amazing oasis. I have been to many unique places in the world, however Laucala is truly perfect.
