Kokomo Private Island Fiji
History & Story
Renowned Australian property developer Lang Walker has lived and breathed place-making for over 50 years. Having sailed and dived the South Pacific extensively, Fiji was a favourite destination. Lang Walker came across an abandoned resort in the Kadavu Group of Islands, fringed by the Great Astrolabe Reef (fourth largest in the world). In 2011 development began with the vision to create a unique, high-end island paradise that caters to the intergenerational market.
Now, together with his family, Lang has brought his vision for an island paradise unlike any other to life. A venture straight from the hearts of the Walker family, Kokomo Private Island Fiji is a private escape for the intergenerational traveller; a place to celebrate life, where big smiles, genuine laughter, a warm welcome and seamless hospitality is effortless.
Not one to do things by half, Lang Walker has delivered a whole new level of exclusivity. Everything is taken care of the moment you set foot in Fiji, from your spectacular sea plane arrival to dining, your private suite and infinity pool, an island of adventures and sea of activities awaits you. A paradise for those in search of unique experiences, retreat for families and haven for honeymooners.
