As travel restrictions and lockdown measures ease across the U.S. and internationally, an international escape to a remote ‘clean destination’ may not be that far out of reach––in fact, some luxury travelers are yearning to venture as far away as possible. According to a recent Departures article, one far-flung destination that U.S. travelers are most looking forward to get to is 7-star Kokomo Private Island Fiji––an island escape known as the South Pacific’s Crown Jewel. Furthermore, for those seeking to travel yet be mindful of destinations with minimal COVID-19 exposure––this month, Fiji reported zero COVID-19 cases in the country.
As Fiji’s most exclusive sanctuary, Kokomo Private Island is set against the backdrop of the spectacular Great Astrolabe Reef––the 4th largest in the world––and is an easy nonstop direct flight from Los Angeles or San Francisco.
Kokomo’s remote location lends itself to being far removed from crowds, allowing guests to feel truly secluded and have paradise virtually all to themselves. Kokomo’s infrastructure also provides natural social distancing as there are only 21 villas and 5 private residences spread across the 140 acre- island. Additionally, the resort team ensures to always practice the following health & safety protocols:
- Regular screening of all staff & team members
- Medical clinic and full-time nurses on the island
- Guests can charter a private aircraft to the island or travel on a seamless shared transfer
- Regular cleaning & disinfecting of all villas and residences, alongside all high touch points
- Monitoring health advice
- Guests can also opt for in-villa dining to minimize contact
To further elevate the feeling of being a world apart, Kokomo Private Island is also available for full island buyouts. The Island Buyout encompasses the entire inventory of individual beachfront bures (traditional thatched-roof villas) and hilltop residences with stunning views of the azure waters in every direction. Available to buyout guests is an extensive list of activities, facilities and experiences throughout the stay. Think: shark diving; waterfall hikes, manta ray swims, coral reef restoration with Kokomo’s on-site marine biologist, Cliona O’Flaherty, sport fishing, and sunrise fishing expeditions.
