Kokomo Island Resort in Fiji: billionaire property developer Lang Walker has turned his prowess to vacay time
A ‘PASSION project’ of billionaire Australian property developer Lang Walker will soon become a luxury getaway hotspot for holiday-makers.
Mr Walker has lived and breathed property development and “place-making” for over 50 years, focusing on industrial and residential projects.
But this time, there will be palm trees, lapping shores and pina coladas with Kokomo Island designed to embody his life enthusiasms.
Mr Walker loves living near the water’s edge in waterfront developments and enjoys any kind of activity on the water.
With his family, it has taken him three years to bring this project to life with Kokomo Island Fiji tagged as the holiday destination’s newest and most exclusive private island resort and will open its doors in March 2017.
Designed to meet the needs of inter-generational travellers, the island sanctuary should cater to travellers’ desire for activities, service and great food.ed
A hidden gem located on the edge of the Kadavu Island group, the unspoilt island paradise will be offering guests myriad experiences both on land and in the surrounding waters.
Spread across 140 acres, the island is pocketed with lush rainforest and dotted with gardens that showcase the native flora and fauna. The resort is lined with fine, white sand beaches while the shores are hugged by the Great Astrolabe Reef, which is home to coral gardens and sea life.
The Walkers want their resort to be a retreat for families and a haven for couples. It’s hoped everyone will go barefoot.
The island’s villas are designed for sustainability, luxury and privacy. There is the owners’ beachfront residence, five hilltop luxury residences with some of the best views on the island, and 21 exclusive beachfront villas, each with their own pool and private walled garden.
With the Great Astrolabe Reef (the fourth largest in the world) just metres from the shores of Kokomo Island, guests will be able to discover the reef’s diversity of marine life while diving, snorkelling, fishing or kayaking.
For those who prefer their adventures on land, there is the opportunity to discover the island on foot, relax in the authentic Fijian spa or kick back and enjoy gourmet cuisine, featuring fresh, sustainable, locally-sourced produce grown.
Kokomo Island will officially open in March 2017, with villas available on a limited basis from January 2017. An all-inclusive daily rate will include meals and beverages, accommodation, a spa treatment and array of activities.
