Dolphin Island offers a superb luxury ‘castaway’ experience to a maximum of just eight guests, on an exclusive-use basis, within the privacy of their very own 14-acre South Pacific tropical paradise – surrounded by crystal-clear, blue waters, palm trees, golden sand and fragrant flowers.
Located just 30 minutes by private boat from shore, on the tip of Viti Levu, lies Dolphin Island. Guests arrive by private boat and are immediately enveloped by the beauty and the style of hopitality that awaits.
The main bure, with its fabulous traditional palm-thatched roof and architecturally detailed elevation holds centre court. A pair of equally picturesque guest bure suites sit to each side in perfect harmony. This group of buildings are at one with the landscape and every aspect of their design ensures perfect enjoyment of the island’s nurturing and lush natural beauty.
The main bure is the hub of rest, relaxation and fun with a series of poolside areas perfectly designated for time spent lazing on day beds (either pre or post a dip in the cool waters of the infinity pool), or for al fresco dining.
Casual groups of plantation-style chairs, perfectly-placed side tables and soft feather-filled sofas beckon – as each day draws seamlessly into the next and your daily schedule is totally of your own making.
As the last rays of the sun catch on the tips of the palm trees and sink into the ocean, the open veranda, with its banks of bi-fold doors offers the perfect venue for a tropical cocktail, or a glass or two of chilled wine.
Island host Dawn Simpson and her staff continue to provide the warm style of hospitality that Fijian people are so well known for. They will look after guests as little or as much as they desire, while always providing attentive, personal and solicitous service.
Meals on Dolphin Island are delicious and feature the freshest of produce, with many flavours and ingredients unique to Fijian cuisine. Freshly caught fish is brought to the island daily so guests can select their preference from the catch and it will be beautifully prepared and served within hours. Fresh tropical fruit is abundant and full of sweet juice – papayas, mangoes and pineapples.
