Nowhere else in the world does barefoot luxury quite like Fiji.
With extraordinary private residences nestled amongst Fiji’s 333 tropical islands to provide Aussies with the most intimate South Pacific escape, Fiji has re-defined what a luxury holiday is all about. From creating custom holistic experiences to heal the heart, soul and mind to providing absolute beachfront privacy and championing world-class sustainable initiatives, Fiji’s private luxury escapes truly are unparalleled.
But most of all, each of these escapes provide an additional layer of warmth to this island nation’s year-round sunshine, where the local staff’s ‘Bula Spirit’ instils confidence in the human spirit and will make you feel as if you are visiting your home away from home, allowing as much privacy as you want.
The Royal Residence at Vomo
At Vomo Fiji, you can choose from a suite of four contemporary Fiji style residences, or simply book out the entire island for your own private use. While all the residences come with beachfront seclusion, all inclusive packages, private dining areas, private pools and butler services, it is The Royal Residence where you will truly sleep like a king or queen. Nestled amongst the island’s tropical gardens, choose from three king bedrooms in the residence and host your own dinner parties with your meals cooked by Kiwi executive chef Michael Fosbender in the residence’s own gourmet kitchen. In addition, you will have unlimited access to their daily yoga sessions, all water sports, tennis, golf, and daily snorkelling safari. And for the more adventurous, book out the sister island, Little Vomo, for a private picnic escape and feel like a true royal castaway. Their relaxed booking policies mean you can start planning your barefoot luxury escape to the elegant island life now.
Private Residence at Six Senses Fiji
Treat yourself to the wellness escape of your dreams at Six Senses Fiji. Immerse yourself amongst Malolo Island’s tropical surroundings at Six Senses, where they have a range of two to five-bedroom residences for you to choose from—each with their own private pool. Regardless of whether you choose a residence with a hilltop view or beachfront access, you will be treated to personally customised meal plans, sleep schedules and meditation sessions. Or for the more adventurous, help plant coral in their home reef, hang-loose on the local Cloudbreak and collect your own eggs from Cluckingham Palace.
Sega na Leqa at Wakaya Club & Spa
In English, the Fijian phrase Sega na Leqa translates to “no worries”. And you will certainly have no worries when staying at Wakya Club & Spa’s impressive private residence that is rightfully named Sega na Leqa. It is here you will experience the ultimate in luxury and tranquillity. With a master wing, private infinity pool, a library and its very own Great Hall, this private residence is one of the most extraordinary architectural achievements in the South Pacific Ocean. But their 10 private bures and 2 villas are also not to be scoffed at—re-built from fallen trees on the island, their extended collection of private accommodation will make you truly feel like you have found your Fiji home. In addition, you would be foolish to not plan your stay to include a Sunday, in which you are invited to join the local Fijians on the island at their weekly Church Service. You have not experienced Fiji magic until you have heard Fijians sing.
Villa Delana at Vatuvara
They say three is the lucky number, and this holds true to anyone lucky enough to stay at Vatuvara’s three private villas on Kaibu Island, with their flagship being Villa Delana. Each located on their own private portion of the island, these villas offer a secluded paradise that includes your own beach, infinity pool, massage bure and dramatic views. But what makes your stay at Vatuvara so special are the sustainable programmes they have implemented to ensue the island remains pristine. Vatuvara has their own organic greenhouse, where the chef selects local produce to aid in creating your custom-tailored meals suited to your own individual preferences. The island is also solar powered, with a solar energy farm also calling this island home. The Vatuvara Foundation was set up to protect the surrounding Oceans and is led by the locals who call Kaibu Island home. Thanks to the Foundation, the island now has one of the most preserved reef systems in the world.
Laucala Private Residence
A private island refuge in the South Pacific, Laucala’s 25- Fijian styled private residences unites dramatic rainforest-laced landscapes and white sandy beaches with unparalleled levels of luxury and privacy. Style and sustainability go hand in hand in each residence, from the natural fibres and woods used in design to the wild orchids harvested in gardens and organic produce grown on island farms. More so, as a guest at Laucala, you will be able to customise your own wellness journey, including picking your own herps, spices and flowers grown on the island to create your signature essential oils, soaps and lotions.
Raiwasa Grand Villa
Tucked in amongst the Garden Island of Taveuni, Raiwasa Grand Villa is a dream residence in an even dreamier location. You will be entranced by the lush tropical surroundings and be pampered like royalty from local Fijians whom you will soon consider to be family. The residence is located on a private three-acre landscape booming with banana, papaya, pineapple, orange and lemon trees. Nature’s playground sits right at your own doorstep, with Bouma National Park waiting for you to explore.
Astrolabe Luxury Residence at Kokomo Private Island
Plucked in the middle of Kokomo is the Astrolabe Luxury Residence, which boasts 360-degree views of natural paradise. The Astrolabe is part of Kokomo’s collection of five luxury residences, which each come with their own open-plan living space, a butler, outdoor dining area and large infinity pool. Artwork by renowned artist Chris Kenyon can be found right throughout every residence, each space unified by his ever-changing interplay between air, light and the sea. It is here where you can adopt a Manta-ray, team up with resident marine biologists to help with their coral restoration projects, dine on exquisite dock to dish/farm to fork meals and engage with their wellness practitioner to create your own holistic holiday. It is also at Kokomo where simplicity, luxury and exclusivity are first nature.
