Kokomo Yaukuve Island

Resort in Kadavu Group

The much-delayed opening of this glamorous resort has been something of a saga, but we're assured that its doors will finally open in 2016. Guests will arrive by seaplane, and can expect 21 luxurious bures and five private villas (all with personal infinity pools), a spa, gym, restaurants and a dive shop. The resort occupies the whole of the uninhabited island.

Dollops of well-finished contemporary Fijian design and attention to detail means that Kokom Yakuve Island is bidding to be one of Fiji's most exclusive resorts.
