Sea spa: South Pacific serenity at Kokomo's Yaukuve Sanctuary Spa

Sea spa: South Pacific serenity at Kokomo's Yaukuve Sanctuary Spa

Where is it?

When a seasoned yachtsman like Lang Walker (owner of the Kokomo series of sloops) chooses a spot in which to permanently drop anchor, you know it must be pretty special. South of Suva, Fiji's Komoko Private Island offers unadulterated bliss, a remote emerald speck in the Great Astrolabe Reef.

Why the hype?

Walker’s private island is first and foremost a holiday retreat for his family, which includes eight grandchildren. Despite having one of the highest price tags in the South Pacific, it maintains a laid-back vibe and staff welcome bambinos with open arms (and traditional Fijian songs).

What to have?

While your little ones are being entertained by its private nanny service or at the Kaji Club, head to the Yaukuve Spa Sanctuary. Set within a tranquil tropical garden, its nine treatment rooms encircle a Relaxation Pavilion where you start and end your journey. Opt for the Kokomo Seashell Massage, where shells (which locals believe help relieve anxiety, aches and pains) are warmed with a sulphur formula to create a deep penetrating heat to release tension. The soothing 75 minutes will ensure that your parental patience levels are reset for the rest of your holiday.

Best by boat:

Kokomo is deliberately yacht-friendly and vessels up to 60 metres, which can fit through the reef, can drop anchor. Guests can either stay on shore or on board.
