New Fiji Private Island Resort: Yours for $100k per Night

By Paul Joseph

Yachting visitors to Fiji in the South Pacific have a lavish new stop-off to add to their itinerary – a stunning private island resort costing $100,000 per night and that can only be reached by seaplane or helicopter.

Nestled amid jaw-dropping natural beauty, the 40-acre Kokomo Island boasts five hilltop residences ranging from three to six bedrooms, a beachfront residence with six bedrooms, and 21 beachfront villas, each with one to three bedrooms.

Designed by Sydney-based Philip Garner, they boast bright and neutral interiors that blend with the surrounding ocean and rainforest views. Abstract artworks in each room are the result of a nine-month commission by Christopher Kenyon. Meals can be served individually in-villa, or guests can dine at three restaurants.

Furthermore, there is also a state-of-the-art SPA featuring therapies that draw on Fiji’s natural elements.

Due to its proximity to the barrier reef, the Kokomo has also acquired a PADI five-star diving status and is the perfect place for water sports of all sorts, ranging from stand-up paddleboarding and outer-reef surfing to deep-sea fishing and laser sailing.

The presence of an array of exotic wildlife, including Billfish, tuna, giant trevally, and manta ray, complete the sense of low-key luxury and adventure.

The Kokomo was acquired in 2013 by the Australian billionaire developer Lang Walker and officially opened its doors in April.
