Como Hotels and Resorts unveils private island resort in Fiji

Como Hotels and Resorts is set to expand its collection of private islands with the addition of Como Laucala Island in Fiji on December 15, 2021.

The 5.4-square-mile island resort in the South Pacific features 25 standalone residences spread across private beaches, blue lagoons and volcanic mountains.

The island features its own private airstrip and is accessed by a 45-minute private air charter from Fiji’s Nadi International Airport.

Residences have been built with natural Fijian wood in a 'South Pacific style' and each come with a private pool and a Como butler.

The resort is home to a tropical 18-hole David McLay Kidd-designed golf course - a first for the brand - as well as a wide range of land and water facilities including a fleet of jet-skis, sailing and game fishing boats, jet boats and diving boats, horse-riding, mountain biking, nature hikes and tennis.

The island’s wellness centre, Como Shambhala Retreat, will include a fitness studio offering fitness classes and yoga, while treatments will use Como Shambhala’s signature products alongside herbs, spices, flowers and fruits.

Five dining options will incorporate the brand’s farm-to-table philosophy using fresh produce from the resort’s 240-acre farm, which cultivates organic crops and livestock including chickens, quail and wagyu cattle. Fresh seafood supplies are sourced exclusively from local fisherman.

Menus include Como Shambhala options, which are high in nutrition and low in fats and refined sugars.

Como Hotels and Resorts operates a total of 14 properties across Asia-Pacific, the Americas and Europe. The brand’s other private island resorts include Como Parrot Cay in Turks & Caicos and Como Maalifushi in the Maldives.
