Dare to discover something different.

This once in a lifetime ‘book your own private island’ opportunity allows adventurous vacationers and travelers alike to escape the stresses of everyday life and return to nature in its rarest form. Nanuku Island is a tiny 10-acre paradise where time stands still. All around you hundred year-old coconut trees burst from the jungle floor, and fifteen miles of the South Pacific’s signature sapphire sea lies between you and your closest neighbor (Red Bull's exclusive 7-star Laucala Island Resort).

A marine and wildlife sanctuary, the sandy shores and surrounding reef are home to some of Fiji’s most exotic creatures. It is here that the fabled Hawkesbill and Leatherback turtles return year-after-year to bury their precious eggs in the sun-warmed sand; it is here where the giant clams can rest securely within the safety of the Tuna and Trevally patrolled reef; and it is here that Fiji’s most rarely glimpsed sea birds retire to rest their weary wings. It is here that wonders never cease.

Make no mistake, Nanuku is a paradise like no other, but it isn’t for the faint of heart. Only if your mind is open to new and exhilarating experiences, and only if you’re ready to forgo the luxury of flashy four-star hotels and survive in style with life's bare necessities, is this the adventure that’s right for you.

In accordance with the eco-status of the island, the toilets are composting and created in an outhouse likeness. The fully potable water supply is provided via a rainwater catchment system and is therefore to be used with preservation in mind. Showers are outdoor, cool-water and camp-style (hanging bucket and spigot). And electricity is provided via solar power or a small generator, turned on only when absolutely necessary.

Room types

Two beautifully basic bures (Fijian-style homes), each no more than 10 steps to the sea, are situated in the Western facing sands of the island, cleverly capturing the soft sea breeze and affording a nearly 180-degree view of the most spectacular sunsets your soul can stand.

The main bure is a lofted, two-story wooden structure with Fijian-style louvered windows which lazily let the sunlight filter through. Equipped with two double beds and a bunk, this bure can sleep up to six guests and offers a shaded sitting-porch as well as ensuite facilities.

The second is a beach house that holds the kitchen and dining area, a second bathroom and two private bedrooms, which sleep up to two guests each. The wrap around deck doubles as an outdoor dining area, or even a sleep-out space, if you’re up for it.
