Kokomo Private Island Fiji Lands A Coveted Spot on Travel + Leisure’s 2018 “It List”

February 24, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Announced last night, Kokomo Private Island Fiji has been selected as part of Travel + Leisure’s 2018 It List, the annual editors’ selection of the best new and newly renovated hotels of the previous year. Each year, the editors visit and review the most exciting debuts around the world to create this highly selective list. For 2018, just 56 properties are receiving the honor, and Kokomo’s selection demonstrates that the team is delivering an exceptional experience that stands out in the highly competitive hotel landscape. The It List is published in the March 2018 issue of the U.S. edition of Travel + Leisure, and is live today on tandl.me/itlist.

Less than a year old, Kokomo Private Island is Fiji’s most exclusive resort, a stunning six-star property nestled within a beautiful private island sanctuary. Built by renowned Australian property developer Lang Walker, Kokomo Private Island Fiji is an all-inclusive private escape for the intergenerational traveller and the realization of Walker’s dream – to create the ultimate island resort, a place of unrivalled but effortless luxury, at one with the natural beauty of the landscape. Having lived and breathed placemaking for 50 years, in his first island venture, Walker intertwines traditional Fijian design with modern contemporary living, a concept that flows throughout the entire island.

Located in the pristine Kadavu Islands, south of the Fijian mainland, Kokomo Island is encircled by the Great Astrolabe Reef, the fourth largest on the planet and famous for its world-class diving. Billfish, tuna, giant trevally, and manta ray are regulars around the barrier reef, while humpback whales swim by seasonally. Appropriately, Kokomo Private Island is a PADI five-star dive resort, outfitted for water play of all sorts, from stand-up paddle-boarding and outer-reef surfing to deepsea fishing and laser sailing. An undiscovered paradise, the island is spread across 140 acres dotted with pockets of lush rainforest and is one of the few rare islands in Fiji with stretches of stunning white sand beach.
