Kokomo Private Island – Fiji 🇫🇯

 

Kokomo Island is the type you’d happily be marooned on. The pearl-like sand and palm trees paint a tropical picture from the moment you arrive by seaplane. Beneath the sea is an underwater treasure chest of coral reef and marine life. Spend days lounging beside the infinity pool or letting go with a spa treatment. After the sun goes down, torches light up, leading the way to gourmet dining beside the ocean.

Whether one-, two- or three-bed – your Kokomo Island retreat will come with a lounge, bar, private deck and pool. Designed for stylish seclusion, villas are carefully spaced out, putting you just a few steps from the water’s edge. Just think, with such privacy and a long stretch of beach, yours might be the only footprints you leave in the sand.

With kaleidoscopic Astrolabe Reef edging this beach retreat, you won’t have to go far to experience one of the world’s biggest and most beautiful coral beds. Kokomo Island has its own PADI 5-star Dive Centre – your jumping-off point for scuba and snorkelling adventures. Then there are paddleboards, fishing boats, kayaks, Hobie Cats, wakeboards and water-skis to try. Inland, go rainforest roaming on a walking trail. The higher you climb, the more spectacular your view.

Kokomo Island, Fiji 🇫🇯

A private island on the edge of the celestial Kadavu Island Group, Kokomo is a true undiscovered paradise. Encircled by the famous Great Astrolabe Reef and dotted with pockets of lush rainforest, Kokomo is one of the few rare islands in Fiji with stretches of stunning white sand beach.

Fiji 🇫🇯

Set your internal clock to ‘Fiji time’: exploring the archipelago’s exquisite beaches, undersea marvels, lush interiors and fascinating culture shouldn’t be rushed.

Wetter is Better

Fiji’s calm seas belie the riot of life going on within. With seemingly endless stretches of intensely coloured reefs and more than 1500 species of fish and colossal creatures Fiji’s underwater world is worth the plunge. Seasoned divers and snorkellers will find plenty to excite them, while first-timers will be bubbling excited exclamations into their mouthpieces. Anywhere a fin flashes or coral waves, you’ll find a diving or snorkel day trip and there are excellent live-aboard journeys for those after a truly immersive experience.

Throwing Down the (Beach) Towel

Dazzling sands, perfect palm trees and waters so blue they glow – Fiji’s beaches look airbrushed. While stunning stretches abound, it’s on the islands of the Mamanucas and Yasawas that you’ll find heavenly heavyweights. These beaches are the poster-child for paradise, luring thousands of visitors keen to discover their own South Sea idyll. The appeal of the islands stretches beyond holiday snaps; the reefs, bays and sublime sands have provided cinematic eye candy to films including Cast Away with Tom Hanks and 1980 teen-dream classic The Blue Lagoon.

Beyond the Beach

While it’s easy to spend your holiday in, on or under the water, those who take the time to towel off will be rewarded by a wealth of terra firma treats. Fiji offers ample opportunities for hikers, birdwatchers, amblers and forest-fanciers, particularly on the islands of Taveuni – known as ‘The Garden Island’ for its ludicrously lush interiors – and Kadavu, a less-travelled slice of prehistoric paradise with almost no roads to speak of. If urban wildlife is your thing, Suva boasts a surprising nightlife scene, while towns like Savusavu entice with rollicking taverns and meet-the-locals haunts.

A Warm Welcome

Fijian life revolves around the church, the village, the rugby field and the garden. While this may sound insular, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more open and welcoming population. Though the realities of local life are less sunny than the country’s skies – many regions are poor and lack basic services – Fijians are famous for their hospitality and warmth, which makes it easy to make friends or immerse yourself in Fijian culture on a village homestay.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort – Fiji 🇫🇯

 

“Once upon a time across the bluest of oceans, an island was born of lava and sand – an untouched paradise whose heart was a turquoise lagoon of unimaginable beauty and tranquility. The first visitors came and explored. To honour the magic of the place, they named it “Likuliku”, meaning “calm waters”.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a haven of subtle luxury for adults only and the first and only resort in Fiji with authentic over water-bures. It is a unique and special place amidst a pristine and natural environment, designed with integrity to Fijian cultural values, traditional designs and architecture, and is embraced by the renowned warmth of the Fijian people.

From the water it looks like an ancient village, so traditional is the style. The beating heart of the Resort is a magnificent building in the design of a Fijian canoe house. Surrounded by sprawling ceilings, hand-woven thatch and an exotic mix of natural materials and modern elements, Likuliku Lagoon Resort embodies the richness of an ancient culture with vibrant present-day lifestyle touches.

The Fijian name for the rooms is “bure”. There are 45 traditionally designed and styled bures, luxuriously appointed and all with views of the beautiful Likuliku Lagoon and ocean.   Each bure has been built with authentic architecture, natural materials and traditional features including local Vesi (hardwood) floors, individual, hand-carved wooden window pelmets and hand-woven “magi magi” (woven coconut husk) art and, Soga (palm) internal thatching woven by authentic artisans from the remote Lau Group of Islands.

Along the beachfront are 35 bures with direct beach and Lagoon access. Eighteen bures have their own private plunge pool, and all beachfront bures have a personal daybed retreat, and private courtyard with secluded outdoor shower.

The 10 unique and spacious over-water bures sit majestically above the coral reef and allow access from their own private balcony straight into the ocean.

The ultimate tropical indulgence awaits all who enter the serenity of “Tatadra Spa”, “Tatadra” means indeed “House of Dreams”.

Luxurious and tranquil, it is nestled against the green slopes of the island with beautiful Lagoon views and soothing breezes. Drift into relaxation and a dream-like state with a Fijian-style massage or select any number of natural beauty and body treatments to soothe your soul from the range of beautiful and naturally crafted  “Pure Fiji” spa and body products.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort offers a daily-changing schedule of activities, including complimentary non-motorised watersports such as stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing and wind surfing, plus complimentary snorkeling equipment.
