The most striking feature of Beqa Lagoon Resort is its seclusion. Only fifteen square kilometers, Beqa Island has no roads, no towns and only a few isolated villages scattered around the perimeter. The island is skirted by stretches of sandy beach laced with mysterious tide pools. Although the resort grounds are neatly groomed, colorful island critters still have free range.
Just behind the resort the land slopes gently upward into a tropical forest. Further into the forest one comes across a fresh water stream descending from a waterfall just about a mile from the resort . Here the thick jungle vegetation occasionally gives way to patches of sweet potatoes, pineapples and taro root, but all in all, the land remains pristine. Tropical flowers bloom everywhere, and the tables at the resort are always filled with fresh cuttings.
If you hike a short way up the hillside, you will find yourself at the base of an impressive waterfall. After cooling off a bit in the pool you can hike further up the path. And right at sunset you hit the top of the trail where you can look out over the entire lagoon. With a little more ambition and time you could hike to the top of the mountain where you can see the entire island from one place.
Our intimate resort features 25 deluxe, private air-conditioned villas(called bures) spread out beneath the lush tropical landscape. Each of these generously sized mini-suites are beautifully appointed with traditional island decor.
12 stunning beachfront bures grace the shoreline, each with their own private courtyard, large sundeck and cool plunge pool. One of the beachfront bures is designated as our honeymoon bure featuring premium ocean view, upgraded contemporary interior and even a romantic outdoor shower.
6 charming bures surround our koi pond and 3 very private bures are tucked away in the garden.
For families or groups we suggest one of our 4 comfortable and spacious two-bedroom bures. Each of these are about 1,000 square feet with 2 private bedrooms and a large living and dining room area. Enjoy soothing ocean views from your private patio or balcony.
