What life post-COVID19 will look like on VOMO Island Fiji

Refreshed safety procedures, contactless check-ins and an abundance of fresh, clean air as always.

We’re busy making sure we’re 100% ready when you are

There’s certainly advantages to being an exclusive private island far away from the rest of the world.

Having seen the impact COVID-19 was having internationally we swiftly took an early stance to impose our own quarantine for the safety of our staff and not allow any movement on or off the island for over one month.

Fiji is a destination which has remained relatively Covid-19 free, with 18 cases and thankfully no deaths to date. Fiji locked down access to all people to and from Viti Levu, (the main island) to the smaller outer islands very early, ensuring they we were protected from anyone spreading Covid-19. It worked.

Maintaining our pristine island environment with refreshed safety protocols

Refreshed protocols for hygiene and sanitation are in place already, to protect our guests and staff when our borders re-open. We have a pristine island environment and we have spent this time working to keep VOMO in her healthy state. Some refreshed procedures are summarised below.

Private speedboats to transfer guests to and from the island, new contactless arrival procedures and best practice international standards followed by our culinary team

Once international borders open, we are ready to welcome guests back. We have private vehicles and private speedboats to transfer guests to and from the island. To ensure safety for all, we have implemented contactless arrival procedures at check-in, changes to food and beverage service with our culinary team continuing to follow strict international food safety program standards in all kitchen practices, and some tweaks in cleaning procedures necessary in a post-COVID-19 world.

One of Fiji’s larger private islands with space, privacy and clean air aplenty

Covid-19 seems to dislike places that have fantastic air quality & loads of sunshine. On our isolated island of VOMO, we have some of the highest air quality on the planet and long days of sunshine and warmth. We have an enormous amount of space for guests to spread out and enjoy activities freely and a family of staff all geared up and longing to welcome guests back. As natural hosts, the Fijians will be as gracious, happy and thoughtful as ever. They might just have to restrain themselves from giving you a hug!

We’re 100% ready when you are. Sota tale! (See you soon.)
