The rich, volcanic soil of Beqa Island provides an ideal canvas for the produce grown on site at Lalati Resort. Savory herbs – basil, rosemary, chives and lemon grass – grow lush and beautiful in the nutrient rich gardens. Traditional Fijian root crops and greens grow side by side with artisan vegetables: aubergine, capsicum, bok choy, cucumbers, English cabbage, long beans, vine ripened tomatoes and an array of leafy lettuce varieties.
Some of Lalati’s produce comes from the new hydroponic system, insuring clean, pure vegetables and fresh pungent herbs at each meal.
Lalati also works hand in hand with the local farmers to educate on which crops best fit the culinary styles for international cuisine. Lalati’s fruit plantation also bears lush tropicals – bananas, pineapple, passionfruit, papaya, coconut and mango.
Our gardeners carefully tend the garden, using techniques of their ancestors. They watch the phases of the moon, the rising and falling of the tides, to ensure crops are bountiful, succulent and just-picked ready, from the garden to the kitchen to your plate.
