Property Description

Kokomo Private Island fuses unscripted luxury with the bounty of space and the generosity of time to do as much (or as little) and your holiday heart desires. Cradled by the world’s fourth largest reef, the Great Astrolabe, our stunning unspoiled and naturally immaculate island is more than a backdrop, it’s your home for as long as you choose to linger.  Our reef provides a virtual portal into an unparalleled underwater world, while our land experiences offer a paradise for adventure seekers, a restorative sanctuary for families and an enticing retreat for honeymooners.

Journey to Kokomo Private Island in our private Twin Otter Seaplane or helicopter. Located just 45 minutes flight from Nadi International Airport or 25 minutes south of Suva, the transit between the mainland and Kokomo offers sweeping views of crystal clear water and powder fine stretches of sand. It’s a breathtaking starter of what’s to come. With over half a century’s success in property development, Lang Walker was always going to throw his heart and soul into his passion project, Kokomo Private Island. Kokomo’s design amalgamates the best parts of Walker’s favourite resorts from around the world, and every detail is world-class magnificence you can feel good about, because this private island resort is as sustainable as it is luxurious.

Developed with an eye towards sustainable design practices and traditional Fijian nuances Kokomo Private Island’s aesthetic boasts a refined and fresh take on Pacific design. Unique, innovative and yet authentic in its nod towards tradition and the natural landscape, there’s a general warmth felt right throughout the island; a natural ripple effect that stems from pioneering design, genuine craftsmanship and our Fijian Kokomo family.

This casual restaurant and bar are positioned over the water, offering a unique setting to enjoy an ice-cold beverage from noon onwards.

UNIQUE DINING DESTINATION  – Our private dining experiences are highly recommended if you are celebrating a special occasion or wanting to treat your loved one to a romantic dinner. Our chefs would gladly prepare a private dinner or picnic based on your favorite foods, to be enjoyed at one of the many breathtaking locations around the island or surrounding, uninhabited islands. The Helipad is a favorite destination due to its amazing panoramic views of the island, with the Chef’s Kitchen experience ideal for group gatherings.

THE FARM  – Embracing the ‘farm to table’ concept, Kokomo boasts a 5.5 acre (2.2 hectares) farm that practices organic methodologies, growing a wide variety of local vegetables, herbs, sprouts, edible flowers, and exotic fruits from zucchini to sweet basil and pineapples, the list is extensive. The Hydroponics garden is large enough to supply fresh lettuce all year round, extra production of tomato vines, cucumbers, and seedling tables; this method excludes the need for soil to grow to produce.

DOCK TO DISH  – At the start of 2018, Kokomo Private Island proudly launched the Fiji chapter of Dock to Dish; an incredible community-supported seafood and fishing venture which we are immensely proud to be a part of. Dock to Dish is an international network of small-scale fishermen, marine biologists, and sustainable seafood advocates committed to sustainable and responsible fishing. At Kokomo, we are setting a new standard in Fijian cuisine by using a truly restorative approach that was designed with future generations in mind.

We’ve made it our priority to connect and invest in our island, our community, and the environment that surrounds us.
