3 steps to getting a private island in Fiji and 3 reasons you deserve it

Here are three steps to having a private island with three reassuring reasons you deserve the experience:

First, allow a scene to be set. You’re in Fiji, the sun is shinning, you’re standing on a sand beach with the warm ocean lapping at your feet, teeming with colourful marine life. You look up to intermittent white clouds dotting an otherwise clear blue sky. Light shimmers on the gentle waves all around you and as you look around you confirm that you and your loved ones are the only people there. This is not a TV show. It is not a trick. You’re on a private island in the South Pacific Ocean. It looks like paradise and yet it is all yours. You haven’t won the lottery, it just feels like it.

You have options. What will you do? You might snorkel, you might lay on the beach, you might explore the land and its plants and trees. Are you hungry? Because a meal was prepared by a masterful chef. Probably best to do all of the above. Will you share this rare luxury with the world on social media, or maybe you’ll only message your nearest and dearest. No matter how you use this time, there are simple steps to make it your reality.

Confirmation you deserve it

We hope you can accept this: You are awesome. So is your family. You deserve wonderful experiences. You deserve to know amazing things are real and available to you. The more unusual the experience is the more our minds take it in, the deeper the memory and the more lasting the connection. Your children and your spouse deserve these exceptional memories too.

You won’t be buying a private island, you’re visiting. It is a treat. What is fundamental to a private island experience is what it removes. There is no competition. There is no comparing yourself with those around you. There are no demands of your attention because everything there is the experience. There is no judgment. There is only this and your belonging there. It is liberating. These are all things you deserve, because we all do.

A Private Island brings privacy. This might seem obvious but the reality of it is rare. You are outside and maintaining privacy. You can be alone, or with those you love most. You can shout and dance and sing without being enclosed and without being viewed. It is freedom. Embrace your inner child and live with abandon.

Where is the best place to scuba dive in Fiji?

Two of the dive instructors at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort’s professional dive center are Geoff and Danny, who have over twenty years of experience as PADI dive instructors and as locals they have unrivaled knowledge of the shallows and the depths all around the resort. Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort certifies more divers than any other dive operation in Fiji. We have enormous experience with teaching absolute beginners and guiding the most experienced divers around the most exceptional locations.

Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort is the best place to dive when traveling as a family. If your children do not yet dive they can learn and experience a new underwater world with you, or, the award-winning child care service provided by the resort ensures you have peace of mind while having a day under the waves, comfortable in the knowledge your little ones are cared for at the resort. We even offer packages specific to the balance of diving and personal rejuvenation.

Fiji Spa and Wellness
Healing at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort Fiji

Fiji has a rich history of traditional healing, a true hands-on approach with massage playing a central role. Talent for healing others is considered by those in Fiji as something inherited, with certain skills shared within families through generations. One Fijian family might specialize in healing throat issues, while another family are those to see for joint pain. These practices can seem fanciful to Western ears, where tales of extraordinary acts of healing done solely by touch are at odds with the practices of Western medicine and may not sound credible. This said, the Fijians with direct experience of such things swear by them.

We at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort have seen first-hand the unusual healing abilities of the people of our Fijian community. It is a holistic and natural approach to wellness and wellbeing, incorporating local time-honed knowledge with natural ingredients. Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort offers a world-class spa service with a difference. Our full spa menu was designed by a local female healer named Viri Marivale. Viri has healing in her lineage, hailing from Natewa on the island of Vanua Levu. We have witnessed Viri provide transformative treatments for our guest and she continues to provide an exception healing service at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, incorporating cold pressed coconut oil, honey, flowers, nuts and spices in treatments provided in a luxurious tropical setting.

Each massage is designed to provide a function, be that to improve circulation, deep tissue relief, balance of the musculoskeletal system, rejuvenation, vibrancy, stress relief and more. We store so much within our bodies and not all of it is beneficial, so why not release that which doesn’t serve us well? Viri and gifted others at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort can help you with that.

In addition to spa treatments, Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort Fiji offers other ways for guests to feel the healing benefits of Fiji and its pristine environment. The warm waters of the South Pacific ocean are cleansing and taking part in the world class diving, exceptional snorkelling sites, waterfall visits, kayaking, and so many more exceptional activities each help restore balance and bring us back to a more natural pace and peace of mind. To stay at our award-winning luxury family friendly resort, please find a date perfect for you.
