What is a Bulanaire?

WHAT is a Bulanaire?

A Bulanaire is someone who is rich in happiness. 

WHAT do they do?

Bulanaires share their happiness and the Bula spirit with others. 

WHY are we doing this?

A recent Gallup International Survey showed that Fiji was the happiest country in the world. However, the survey also showed that happiness was in decline elsewhere, even at a time when we have more wealth than ever and the world’s annual rich lists showcase so many Billionaires. This gave us the idea to share some of Fiji’s abundant happiness with the rest of the world. 

On the International Day of Happiness, 20 March 2019, we released a rich list of a different kind. A list of people who were truly rich. Rich in happiness. Bulanaires, not billionaires. 

So, WHAT have we created?

We’ve formed a community of Bulanaires based here in Fiji and around the globe, who we’ll empower to share their happiness with the world. 

WHO are the Bulanaires?

Our 2020 Bulanaires are made up of people from the tourism industry in Fiji and a few famous friends, who we believe share our Bula spirit. 
WHAT’s our vision for the programme? Through the Bulanaires programme we hope to further celebrate the heroes of the Fijian tourism industry and promote the role they play in making Fiji the place where happiness finds you. 

We hope it will inspire you to visit Fiji to experience the Bula spirit for themselves. And ultimately, to make the world a happier place.
