Solitude has never looked as stylish as it does on this slice of the South Pacific. Kokomo is the pristine vision of an Australian billionaire, who spent six years transforming the unruly jungle island of Yaukuve (an 50-minute seaplane ride from Fiji’s main airport) into a reverie-like expanse of beachfront villas, hilltop residences, and wet-edge pools separated by bougainvillea-lined paths. Developer Lang Walker, whose extravagant portfolio also includes the country’s very exclusive Laucala Island Resort, brought his over-the-top swagger to Kokomo’s 140 acres, gilding them with star-studded embellishments like hardwood furniture sourced from the cinnamon trees on actor Mel Gibson’s private Fijian island and villa art by Chris Kenyon (the architect designed the sets for the original Mad Max films). The five-star PADI dive center onsite (the resort is also equipped for other types of water play, such as stand-up paddle-boarding, deep-sea fishing, and laser sailing) is an ode to the locality’s prime attraction: guests at Kokomo are granted front-row access to the Great Astrolabe Reef—a treasure trove of manta rays, clownfish, and humpback whales (depending on the season)—and kaleidoscopic coral beds long considered an underwater paradise.
In the Area
With a private plunge pool, sundeck, complimentary minibar, and the option to take your meals (often made with the catch of the day) en-suite, you might struggle to ever leave your sprawling, wicker-clad villa. But the azure waters will eventually beckon, whether it’s in the form of an awe-inducing dive (each villa is provided one complimentary scuba voucher), a snorkeling trip alongside the resident turtles, or a windswept Hobie Cat sail. Back on land, choose from gratis yoga classes held poolside or a rainforest hike, which will lead you to Yaukuve’s lofty summit. There, you’ll be able to spy a trio of lush neighboring isles—not surprisingly, it’s more Lang Walker territory.
How to Get There
Vow. Big spacious villas. On the beach
Excellent service. Great food. Very friendly staff. Snorkeling was great
Beach outside the villa. Fantastic beach
Can’t say enough good things about this place.
Owner is a fabulous guy.
We spent 5 days in a spacious well designed villa on the beach. Beautiful waters.
Outstanding service. Fabulous food. Great gym. Lots of activities.
The whole staff is extremely friendly. Will be coming there more often
The Experience was exceptional. The Staff were superb super friendly, ammeneties was world class and very modernized with a blend of Fijian tropical taste. Very Private the clear blue waters the sun the beach the view was all undescribable.
Absolutely superb. The ultimate in luxury and freedom of choice from the moment you arrive by helicopter or seaplane from Nadi to this gorgeous private island.
Each guest’s holiday can be completely as they wish and very private, given there are only a handful of people on the island at any time. No expectations or rules, come to dinner barefoot across the sand if you want.
Endless opportunities to be in the water with private guides for diving and snorkelling or long lazy days on the beach (the one in front of your villa or another island in the nearby group). The astrolabe reef is 10 minutes away by boat (probably one with only you on it).
We loved it.
Where to start. We flew in from Los Angeles for the 2017 CHRISTMAS. Once you land in Fiji, the journey begins. We were picked up at a private hanger to fly in Kokomos, private sea plane to the Island. we landed after a gorgeous flight through the islands to be greeted by the friendliest staff and most impressive resort you will ever see.
WE came with family 6 of us, with the intent of SCUBA, great food, beaches etc. All of those were top shelf. I am an advanced Scuba diver and we had all levels with us. When Kokomo says PRIVATE, That is exactly what it is.
The dive gear was brand new, the boats, best kept dive boats in my experience, The diving was world class, the team was superb. we dove twice a day, night dives, cave dives, etc. The coral and water in that area were in perfect condition.
The resort is so well appointed, we had our own beach houses that were luxurious and well appointed. The management is top notch, everyone is trained and very friendly, we felt like we are leaving family behind when it was time to go.
The Food is exquisite in either restaurant and is a adventurous as you would like to be. I cannot say enough about this resort. we will return
one not of warning. $$$$$ it is not for the faint of heart price wise, but... it is worth every single penny if you can afford it, it will be a trip of your lifetim
