Your VIP Look at Fiji’s Best-Kept Secret
If “island oasis” is at the top of you and your partner’s honeymoon list, look no further than beautiful Kokomo Private Island Fiji.
Whether you’re eyeing Fiji as a place to recharge or go explore, Kokomo Private Island Fiji has you covered. This passion project from Australian billionaire Lang Walker AO is the perfect escape for both romantic retreats and familial bonding. The resort experience allows guests to do as much (or as little) as their holiday heart desires. For example, each of the villas and residences here are designed for the ultimate retreat from reality. And whether you’re diving into the reefs or craving a beachside feast, the stellar team on property is ready to guide you.
Now, let’s take a plunge into what’s waiting for you in the friendly Fiji islands.
The welcome to this Fiji resort feels as bright as the Pacific sun
Kokomo Private Island ensures that your trip is memorable the moment you set foot on land. After landing in Fiji, a member of their Guest Services team will whisk you away from the airport to the resort’s dedicated aviation hangar and luxury transfer lounge. Here, your journey to paradise begins with a glass of chilled bubbly in hand. Then, enjoy expansive views of the Fijian Islands from the comfort of the resort’s privately operated Twin Otter seaplane or Airbus helicopter.
Stepping onto the jetty, you’ll be greeted by Kokomo’s in-house choir singing the traditional “Bula Maleya” welcome song. That genuine warmth will be ever-present throughout your stay from their childcare services to the culinary experiences. And no matter where you are on the island, you’ll be greeted with a smile, and a friendly “bula”.
Kokomo Private Island Fiji’s built their stays with love from the ground up
“These residences come with all the bells and whistles!”
A Fiji honeymoon doesn’t feel quite as complete without a secluded oceanfront stay. Twenty-one beachfront villas dot Kokomo’s two longest beaches. Lush tropical gardens provide the perfect natural barrier between you and your neighbors along the shore. All that’s left to decide is whether you’ll swim in your private infinity pool or the ocean just steps away. SmartFlyer travel advisor Katie Lee sums it up best, saying “The Villas feature a sustainable blueprint and incorporate so many traditional Fijian design elements. Aside from the Beachfront Villas, there are also five luxurious residences on the property with a three, four, five, six-bedroom configuration. These residences come with all the bells and whistles!”
Families and friend groups will be awe-struck entering one of Kokomo’s five exclusive residences. Before dropping your bags, you’ll receive a warm welcome from the butler and nanny who ensure guests need for nothing. Afterward, arrange for a private chef to cook for you a healthy, filling meal in the comfort of your residence. Or, relax poolside with the dishes offered by in-villa dining. Regardless, those same stunning views that welcomed you on your flight here will envelop you from couch to terrace. All these pieces make the accommodations perfect for celebrating life’s milestones.
The food here embodies happiness and good health
“With all meals included, the food is truly next-level and you will never be bored or hungry.”
You’ll probably have a healthy appetite after your journey to reach the white, sandy beaches of Fiji. Luckily, plenty of on-resort restaurants are ready to greet you with a diverse mix of dishes. Beach Shack is a Mediterranean grill where the skills of the delightful Chefs Enzo and Shaun are on full display. Kokocabana is a relaxed poolside eatery that specializes in wood-fired pizzas and high-end American cuisine. SmartFlyer travel advisor Lauren Tulp Cichocki adds, “With all meals included, the food is truly next-level and you will never be bored or hungry. And did we mention the unlimited gelato?” For a real treat, walk further down the beach to Walker d’Plank, where Chef Caroline brings Asian-style street food to life. This is one of our favorite dining outlets on property. The freshly prepared tuna (seared, raw, and poké), to-die-for scallops with diced mango, and lobster lettuce wraps are must-tries.
However, those looking for a more secluded vacation dining experience should look no further than Kokomo’s private dining options. For a one-of-a-kind celebration like a Fiji honeymoon or anniversaries, the skilled chefs will prepare a private meal to be enjoyed at one of the island’s many breathtaking locations. Watch the sunset from a private table in the resort’s hilltop yoga shala. Take in the ambiance from the resort’s private wine cellar. Or, enjoy the peace and serenity from the resort’s spa.
Every excursion inspires joy and wonder
The Great Astrolabe Reef is the ultimate playground for dive and snorkeling enthusiasts.
Eventually, you’ll probably want to take a journey through the resort’s vast activity offerings. For example, the Great Astrolabe Reef is the ultimate playground for ocean enthusiasts. Here, you can learn to scuba dive through a wide variety of corals, caverns, and caves under the watchful eye of Kokomo’s experienced dive instructors. The close encounters with reef sharks and turtles are simply thrilling. If conservation inspires you, then join Kokomo’s marine biologists Cliona O’Flaherty and Viviana Taubera in coral selection, planting, and maintenance. You may also have the chance to capture photos for the Manta Conservation Project to help ID these rays. Conversely, guests interested in staying closer to home can snorkel directly off the beach or Kokomo’s glass-bottom boat.
Additionally, some of the most active fishing spots in the archipelago are just a short distance from the resort. There, you can learn the traditional method of handline fishing or make use of the latest Shimano rods and tackle during your game fishing, sports fishing, or spearfishing adventure. Then, bring your catch back to shore and have it transformed into a decadent meal by Kokomo’s culinary team. In contrast, explore the island and head into Dravuni or Buliya village for authentic Fijian music and artisanal shopping. Comparatively, travel by boat to a hidden natural waterfall in Kadavu replete with magnificent flora and fauna surrounding. This destination shrouded in nature makes for the perfect Fiji honeymoon photo ops.
The island molds to your personal needs and desires
All in all, this secluded stay feels perfect for a honeymoon and families seeking a quintessential Fiji vacation. The private experiences make for an unforgettable romantic destination. Additionally, Komomo’s 24-hour nanny service, Kids Camp, and Teen Club are guaranteed to keep young ones occupied for weeks. The resort also offers an array of experiences for kids like treasure hunting, cooking classes, and Fijian jewelry crafting. Parents, feel free to kick back, relax, and bask in the Pacific sun. The Yaukuve Spa Sanctuary’s outdoor relaxation area is pure bliss, especially when accompanied by a cup of refreshing hibiscus tea.
