Offered for Twenty Five Million Euro is the timeless ownership of one of the finest islands in the world and one of the last freehold islands in the South Pacific paradise of Fiji.
The 225 acre island is 1 mile long by 1/3 mile wide with 150 foot elevations, surrounded by a 5,000 acre lagoon which completely encircles the island, offering protection from extreme tides and providing the island with calm tranquil waters ideally suited for water sports. The crystal clear water has 200-foot visibility and is a comfortable 80 degrees Fahrenheit most of the year.
The island was a safe haven from storms for Polynesian sailors over the centuries; the entrance to the lagoon is 35 feet deep and about 200 feet wide, recently allowing yachts over 200 feet the serene protection of the lagoon. The island still provides a safe and luxurious haven from the storms of everyday life and is the only resort in the largely uninhabited and pristine archipelago, offering privileged visitors an image of Polynesian life as it was hundreds of years ago.
The island is home to a world class resort development (80% complete), with an estimated completion of 6 to 9 months.
The main complex, comprising the lobby, lounge, dining pavilion, meeting facilities and full service spa, soars 100 feet above the turquoise lagoon, offering sublime vistas and spectacular sunsets. The lavish private villas are scattered along the crystal clear water’s edge on a magnificent white sand beach. Spa tubs built for two complete each of the 21 guest Bures (Villas), which will feature mosquito-netted four-poster beds and sumptuous furnishings.
The present owners of the island write…
“When we found the island in 1994, the weather was less than ideal, there was NO infrastructure or conveniences, but the property was incredible, even at its worst! We decided to purchase the island while sitting on the beach in the rain. Sounds romantic but after looking at dozens of properties all over the world, we knew that Blue Lagoon Island was very special.
After purchasing the island we retained an architect who worked on many prestigious properties, including Euro Disney and Disney World in Florida – a landscape architect who was involved in the design of Jack Nicholas courses and resort properties for Don Kohl, a Southern California property developer.
The entire island was incorporated into the resort design including the very spacious individual villas on the beach, the main complex soaring 100′ above the lagoon, the full service spa facility, dining pavilion (including a show kitchen and “European” wine cellar like no other in the region), golf course, roads, jetty and marina, dive center and many other facilities. Future plans include a pearl farm and luxury yacht component to the resort development.”
