Fiji's fantasy island

Vomo Island, Fiji

Vomo Island, Fiji

Take a trip to paradise with the reopening of the luxurious Vomo Island in Fiji.

Upgrading a resort is a big undertaking. Rebuilding a year later takes special patience and deep pockets - about $13.5 million and 28 weeks in the case of Fiji's luxury Vomo Island after Cyclone Winston, the most severe storm in the nation's history, hit in February 2016.

"It was a challenge," says the resort's general manager Mark Leslie, "but it gave us the chance to rethink everything and start again."

The 87-hectare private island reopened in September 2016, with two three- and four-bedroom beachfront residences added to the spread of 32 villas, and a landscaping project involving about 10,000 plants. Vomo's baby butlers have returned, and The Rocks bar still has its stellar view for sundowners. vomofiji.com
