Welcome to Turtle Island, a 500-acre private island retreat located in Fiji’s Yasawa Islands. Turtle Island offers a sustainable and authentic experience that celebrates the Fijian way of life. We welcome just 14 couples at a time to enjoy this serene experience where each couple can have their own private beach and is assigned a dedicated personal concierge, your Bure Mama. The island is powered by solar energy, produce is all locally grown in the 5acre vegetable garden, and the spacious villas are handcrafted by local Fijian artisans. Your private island includes private beach picnics, unique dining experiences, Fijian inspired spa treatments, horseback riding, scuba diving, champagne sunrise breakfasts, and an amazing and friendly Fijian staff ready to make all of your dreams come true. Through its tranquility, simplicity, and intimacy, Turtle Island serves as an idyllic sanctuary for travelers seeking connection, community, culture, and consciousness.

Mighty Mo and I just returned from 8 fantastic nights at Turtle Island.From the moment you arrive by sea plane to the moment you leave,you are treated like family.Food and service was more than excellent,and every staff member calls you by name and makes you feel very welcome.Mama Lai took care of us and was soon like a long lost friend to both of us.She was fun and was always there to bring a snack or plan our day.Mama Su kept us fed along with Mogi, Nina and Nikki. Always ready with a big smile and a hug. Aarami ruled the dock and was always ready to drive us to one of the 14 private beaches we had access to every day.It was truly a unique and amazing trip and Mo and I have already booked a 14 day return!!!!!

Spent 8 days with my wife for her birthday. Words don’t adequately describe what an epic time we had on Turtle Island. The staff are amazing people who love what they do. Our Bure Mama Taru took such good care of us and loved on us like we were family. From the private dine outs, the group dinners, the snorkeling, the horseback riding, the village visit, the private beaches, the amazing music and the delicious culinary creations of Chef Ben there are so many memories. We loved coffee in front of our Bure on the beach in the morning before walking to the group table and starting the day. The weather was perfect and the warm waters of the Blue Lagoon was always inviting and full of tropical fish. Meeting others from all over who traveled to the island was another bonus a diverse crowd that we made friends with and are sure we’ll likely see again sometime maybe even at Turtle Island! We look forward to going back fir a return visit.
