This stunning 14-acre private retreat offers a maximum of just eight guests, the ultimate luxury castaway private Pacific island experience, on an exclusive-use basis. Water Sports involving waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, kitesurfing and jetskiing are readily available. Cultural visits to nearby villages, sightseeing and tours to areas of historical interest can be arranged, as can pampering massages and facials.
The main bure, with its fabulous traditional palm-thatched roof and architecturally detailed elevation holds centre court, with a pair of equally picturesque guest bure suites sitting 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 landscape.
Renowned interior designer Virginia Fisher has ensured Dolphin Island offers an extraordinary guest experience. Ambiance is in great abundance as Virginia’s sense of place emerges strongly, as she references colours, textures and patterns from the Pacific – boldly and with her absolutely innate sense of style. Every level of guest comfort has been considered from thirsty beach towels to perfumed candles – and the total effect is utter magic.
Island host Dawn Simpson and her team continue to provide the warm style of authentic 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 and solicitous service for all Dolphin Island visitors.
Food on Dolphin island often can be best described as Fijian fusion in style – a unique blend of traditional Fijian flavours and ingredients combined with elements of Indo-Fijian cuisine creates a fabulous array of taste sensations. Spices, chillies, coconut, seafood, fresh fish, limes, indigenous vegetables and exotic tropical fruits all feature on the menu.
Guests enjoy the best Fiji has to offer when Dolphin Island host, Dawn Simpson, is preparing dishes for their enjoyment. Dawn is also happy to generously share the secrets of her kitchen with guests during their stay and to take them to the local market where she goes to carefully select her produce.
With your own private island, you and your family have the freedom to create your very own bespoke family experiences and operate to your own schedule. Island host Dawn and her team are only too happy to make sure you have everything you need to have an absolutely amazing time on Dolphin Island. Our warm and friendly Fijian staff adore children and will ensure the younger members of your family have a wonderful stay on Dolphin Island. They are also available for babysitting, should this be required. Children’s menus can be created especially to ensure lots of delicious treats are always on hand.
Dolphin Island provides the most extraordinary romantic place to honeymoon. The level of privacy offered is unrivalled and everything is designed to meet your needs and your daily schedule. Meals will be prepared and served when and where you want them and each day is utterly your own. Escape to Dolphin Island for massages on the beach, a candlelit dinner for two in the Hilltop Sleep-out bure, a midnight swim in your own infinity pool, cocktails on the floating pontoon, and savour tropical days and sensuous nights that you will remember forever.
Located just 20 minutes by boat from shore, on the tip of Viti Levu, Fiji, Dolphin Island nestles like a precious jewel, surrounded by crystal-clear waters. Following arrival at Nadi International Airport, you can travel for 2.5 hours by private car (included within tariff), or choose to transfer by float plane or helicopter to Dolphin Island. The island's own private boat will then transfer to your own private island retreat where on arrival, you will be immediately enveloped by the beauty and luxurious accommodation that awaits.
