Kokomo Private Island fuses unscripted luxury with the bounty of space and the generosity of time to do as much (or as little) as your holiday heart desires.
Cradled by the Great Astrolabe Reef, our stunning unspoiled and naturally immaculate island is more than a backdrop, it’s your home for as long as you choose to linger.
Our reef provides a virtual portal into an unparalleled underwater world, while our land experiences offer a paradise for adventure seekers, a restorative sanctuary for families and an enticing retreat for honeymooners. Kokomo Private Island will absorb your idea of luxury – whatever that might look like for you.
Located just 45 minutes flight from Nadi International Airport or 25 minutes south of Suva, the transit between the mainland and Kokomo offers sweeping views of crystal clear water and powder fine stretches of sand. It’s a breathtaking starter of what’s to come.
Developed with an eye towards sustainable design practices and traditional Fijian nuances Kokomo Private Island’s aesthetic boasts a refined and fresh take on Pacific design.
Unique, innovative and yet authentic in its nod towards tradition and the natural landscape, there’s a general warmth felt right throughout the island; a natural ripple effect that stems from pioneering design, genuine craftsmanship and our Fijian Kokomo family.
A PASSIONATE ENDEAVOUR
Renowned Australian property developer Lang Walker AO has lived and breathed place making for over 50 years. Now, together with his family, Lang has brought to life his vision to create ‘an island paradise unlike any other’.
A venture straight from the hearts of the Walker family, Kokomo Private Island Fiji is a place with just as much emphasis on the natural beauty of the landscape as there is on the resort.
It’s a serenity filled space, famous for its affable and welcoming Fijian hospitality; and it’s somewhere to meet, to celebrate, to laugh, to relax, to enjoy seamless hospitality and to squeeze the last remaining minutes from each resplendent sunset – with those you love.

FIJIAN NUANCES MEET MODERN DESIGN

A short distance from Kokomo are some of the most fertile and untouched waters Fiji has to offer. Ideally positioned within close proximity to the unspoilt and thriving, Great Astrolabe Reef, Kokomo offers varied, unrivalled and world-class fishing opportunities.
The waters around Kokomo contain a rich variety of pelagic and demersal species, from mackerel to marlin, wahoo and sailfish.
To experience the thrills of big game or sport fishing, you need only venture a little further from the resort, to the outer reefs, where large schools of tuna cloud the top of untouched seamounts and blue marlin cruise the deep water off the edge.
Discover the underwater wonders of the Great Astrolabe Reef, on an unparalleled underwater adventure. Extending for over 100km (62 miles), the Great Astrolabe Reef is the ultimate playground for dive enthusiasts.
Located on the north east of the Kadavu group of islands, Kokomo offers exclusivity to dive sites that are not frequented by other resorts. Come face to face with a wide variety of marine life, including reef-sharks, turtles and dolphins, as well as an abundance of coral reef fish found among the soft and hard coral formations.
With access to both the western and eastern side of the Great Astrolabe Reef, Kokomo Private Island provides guests with the opportunity to select from an impressive selection of varied dive sites.
The majority of our sites are located on the western side of the Great Astrolabe Reef. This area provides an abundance of diverse diving options and features multiple varying passages and channels that weave throughout this impressive barrier reef.
MAY – OCTOBER
This is the best time of year for diving at Kokomo. During these months the water temperature is slightly cooler – sitting at a comfortable 24˚C (75˚F) – meanwhile, the magnificent big blue offers fantastic visibility with clear viewing of up to 60 metres, rarely dropping below 25 metres.
NOVEMBER – APRIL
While diving is an all year round activity at Kokomo, the sea is at its calmest and the water temperature is at its warmest during these months – reaching up to 30˚C (86˚F). Visibility ranges from 20–30 metres, and is subject to change due to the more unpredictable weather this time of year.
MANTA RAYS (April – September)
Manta Rays can be found all year round at our many dive sites, however snorkelling encounters generally occur during the April-September period. They are regularly spotted between Kokomo and Yaukuve Lailai and have also been seen in front of the resort and around the dock.
It is important to note that these are wild animals and unfortunately encounters cannot be guaranteed. The Manta Rays average size is 3m across, however, they can grow up to 5.5m (wing tip to wing tip).
Travelling between shallow reefs and deeper waters, there are two different types: the Oceanic Manta Ray and the Reef Manta Ray – the most common of the two.
The Mantas we swim with do not have a barb on their tail so there is no chance of being stung. It is a safe, enjoyable and memorable experience to swim with these amazing creatures!
TURTLES (All Year Round)
Found around the world in warm subtropical and tropical ocean waters, turtles can be encountered right throughout the year here at Kokomo. We often spot these majestic reptiles on our outer reef dives, as well as within our House Reef, directly out the front of Kokomo.
Our local waters are home to the Green Turtle and the Hawksbill Turtle. While the Green and Hawksbill Turtles look similar, the Hawksbill can be distinguished from the Green Turtle by its sharp curving beak and the saw-like appearance of its shell margins.
The Green Turtle is lightly coloured and features a teardrop shaped carapace and large paddle-like flippers.
HUMPBACK WALES (June – September)
Humpback Whales are not a regular occurrence but we have been lucky over the years and have had a few sightings of them near Kokomo. These ever intriguing creatures travel on route from the Antarctic to warmer water throughout the southern hemisphere winter.
While they travel at a slow speed during migration they have been known to socialize, breed and calve in Fiji.
They have also been spotted on the way to Kadavu during excursions as well as transfer flights to and from the island – so keep your cameras at the ready! If luck is on your side, you may also spot Pilot Whales between April – September.
SHARKS (All Year Round)
There are an array of sharks that manoeuvre through the reef all year round. Reef Sharks – such as White Tip Sharks – are often spotted on diving and snorkelling trips, however we do have an abundance of Grey Sharks that reside at Solo Reef.
Oceanic Hammerheads are also sighted all year around but particularly between July – August. These sharks are often found in the shallower reefs near a drop off or passage.
Experienced divers will often spot Bull Sharks at Solo Reef (1-hour boat ride from the resort). The ever elusive Tiger Sharks have been sighted a few times, however, they are a rare occurrence.
SPINNER DOLPHINS (All Year Round)
We often sight spinner dolphins when the sea is calm. These small cheeky creatures are found in offshore tropical waters and love playing in the bow of the boat! Most famous for their aerial displays, the playful Spinner Dolphin can make two to five spins in one leap, and reach up to ten feet high.
The acrobats of the sea, scientists believe that spinners have developed a very sophisticated language using jumps, dives, and turns. Spinners live in large pods (from a few dozen to a thousand or more); and while they are residents throughout the year here, sighting a pod of spinners is pure luck.
Want to take your diving to the next level and become certified? You are in the right place. Kokomo Private Island operates its own 5 Star PADI Dive Center with a world-class dive team.
The duration of the open water course is three to four days, depending on whether the online component of your course has been completed prior to your arrival on Kokomo. The course is a combination of theory and practical tasks that adhere to PADI standards.
In the event that you require more time to complete the course, we are flexible and able to provide as much extra guidance as needed; because we are committed to creating passionate and safe divers.
Once signed up, we will forward you a unique link to the PADI website where you can begin your e-learning; and this is a great way to do the theory component from the comfort of your own home.
