Fuji Island – A private Fiji Island Luxury Experience

Fujifilm, a world leader in imaging, launched its own luxurious private island, Fuji Island, as the perfect photography retreat and we were excited to be invited to this exclusive enclave.

The location

Fuji Island is located in the picturesque Manamuca group of islands in Fiji, a short speedboat ride away from Nadi.

First Impressions

Fuji Island organised the whole transfer process so everything was seamless. We got off the plane and our driver was waiting in arrivals and we were whisked to the jetty and on to a waiting private speedboat for the 30-minute journey to Fuji Island. As the boat pulled in to shallow water surrounding Fuji Island I could not believe the clarity! It was stunning! With bright parrotfish swimming all around the boat right up to the shoreline.

The Camera

Fuji Island is equipped with the latest Fuji camera equipment including the new mirrorless X-T3.  We captured lots of beautiful shots with the X-T3 and the things we especially loved about the new camera were:

  • The higher image quality: 26.1MP resolution – the highest for an APS-C sensor. Also, it achieves as low level of noise as current models, even increasing the number of pixels.
  • Professional grade video performance: It’s well-known that video is king at the moment in marketing and social media and the X-T3 is the world’s first mirrorless digital camera to support 4K/60p 4:2:0 10bit internal SD card recording, as well as 4K/60p 4:2:2 10bit HDMI output which can be filmed at the same time.
  • Improved Autofocus (AF) performance: 1.5 times faster processing speed than current models, to deliver faster and more accurate AF, and substantially enhanced performance in face/eye detection.
  • Enhanced motion tracking: Delivering blackout-free continuous shooting of up to 30FPS while using Smooth Live View of 60FPS to check your subject.

Our Room

At Fuji Island when they say “Private Island” they actually mean “Private Island”!

Accommodation consists of 3 bedrooms (each bedroom feels more like a self contained private villa) that are all connected via wooden decking.  You can book one room or all three rooms, either way, the entire island is yours and yours only.  The room we stayed in had an amazing outdoor shower with views out to the crystal clear ocean and the room next door had an incredible bath with bi-fold windows that opened up to the spectacular view as well.

Dining

At Fuji island everything is all-inclusive and that means your private chef can cook whatever you want (freshly caught lobster anyone??) and premium drinks (we washed that lobster down with Moet!).  They really have thought of everything so you can arrive to the island and truly relax in a stunning private setting and know you’re getting an absolute premium experience.

Spa

An optional extra is a massage in the private treatment room overlooking the ocean (there’s two beds set up for a couples massage).

For Children

Children are very welcome at Fuji Island (as they are everywhere in Fiji) and it is the perfect place for families to unhook from technology (although there is portable wifi for you if you choose to stay connected) and create some everlasting memories.

What you’ll love
