Superyacht owner to open Fijian island paradise

Superyacht owner to open Fijian island paradise

Superyacht owner and property developer Lang Walker is set to open an exclusive private island resort in Fiji next year. Kokomo Island Fiji, which is located on the edge of the Kadavu Group and sprawls across 140 acres of lush rainforest and white sand beaches, is set to open for business on March 31.

Walker has been working on the project with his family for the last three years, and has given it the same name as his yacht, Kokomo, an all-aluminium 58.4 metre vessel that was launched in 2010 by Alloy Yachts. She’s the third yacht named Kokomo built for Walker, so he can certainly offer some excellent tips for building custom yachts.

The all-inclusive resort will offer diving, paddleboarding, sailing, surfing, water skiing, kayaking and snorkelling. Visitors can also explore the exotic ecosystem of stunning marine life on the Great Astrolabe Reef, the fourth largest reef in the world, in which the island sits. Slightly further afield, divers might see turtles, manta rays and even whales during certain periods of the year, so it’s definitely worth spending a few days discovering breathtaking Fiji on a superyacht.

Aimed at families and couples alike, there will be a dive centre, luxury spa, kids club, and tennis court alongside a variety of restaurants that will serve dishes that use locally sourced ingredients or produce grown on the island itself.

There is a choice of five luxury hilltop residences and 21 beachside villas, all of which feature sustainable and traditional Fijian design and have private pools. Guests will also be able to make use of in-house services, such as a chef, butler or nanny.

Though Kokomo Island officially launches at the end of March 2017, some villas will be available on a limited basis from January 2017, making it the perfect new location for exploring, whether for those with a private yacht or who want to charter a superyacht in Fiji. Superyachts have been welcomed back to Fiji after Cycle Winston, which washed a number of ships, yachts and boats ashore in late February 2016.
