If you’ve ever heard the eponymous Beach Boys song — good luck getting that out of your head for the rest of the day — then you’ll know that ‘if you want to go and get it away from it all, go down to Kokomo’.
Now, admittedly, this Kokomo sits on the other side of the world to the one the Beach Boys sang about, but those surfing songsters weren’t wrong. For this private Fijian island retreat may be the closest thing to paradise we’ve ever seen.
Located on the edge of the celestial Kadavu Island Group, just off mainland Fiji, this island is isolated enough to feel like you’ve escaped from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, yet still connected enough to cater for your every hedonistic, luxurious desire.
Kitted out with 21 Beach Front Villas and five Luxury Residences, all available to rent out, these majestic properties offer views of turquoise and blue ocean and lush green rainforest. The Beach Front Villas are a particular favourite of ours, offering instant access to the powdery, white sand beaches and unbeatable ocean views.
And, although offering an unparalleled place to relax, if you’d get fidgety under the palms there’s also a whole host of activities on offer. Snorkel along the fourth largest reef in the world. Go game- or spear-fishing. Take a much-needed break in the island spa with traditional Fijian treatments.
Don’t feel like you have to leave the kids at home either — there are facilities for kids, from infants to teens. Conversely, don’t expect this to be a run-of-the-mill family holiday — a beautiful rainforest provides both privacy and space to explore on the island a real sense of adventure for anyone looking to escape the rat race.
To find such a beach is rare enough in this world, but finding a luxury villa that looks out onto it is even rarer. So, next time someone asks you what’s the one thing you would take to a desert island, just say your booking confirmation for this stunning resort.
