This is a resort where space is luxury: Just 25 residences, each with their own COMO butler, spread out on private beaches, above lagoons, atop hills and mountains.

With its private airstrip accessed by a 45-minute private air charter from the country’s Nadi International Airport, this sanctuary will provide unparalleled levels of luxury living in 25 standalone residences located on the northern shore of the island.

COMO says its carefully designed spaces are at one with nature and surprise with individual features and views across the Pacific.

With private spaces between 3,000 and 4,000 sqm, all residences feature private pools. The construction has been carefully considered using local materials where possible.

The residences are built with natural Fijian wood in a South Pacific style and blend seamlessly with COMO’s contemporary flair.

The resort also offers horse-riding, mountain biking, nature hikes and tennis.

COMO Shambhala Retreat, the island’s wellness centre, is the embodiment of COMO’s philosophy for holistic, healthy living.

At this nurturing retreat, guests can expect physical fitness classes, yoga, and a fitness centre. Treatments make use of COMO Shambhala’s signature products, as well as the island’s herbs, spices, flowers, and fruits.

The company says to minimise its impact on the environment and in line with its farm-to-table philosophy, the island’s five dining options receive fresh produce from the resort’s 240-acre farm, cultivating a wide range of organic crops and livestock including chickens, quail and wagyu cattle.

Fresh seafood supplies are sourced exclusively from local fishermen, contributing to the island’s commitment to sustainability. Menus include COMO Shambhala options, which are high in flavour, nutrition, and low in fats and refined sugars.
