Kokomo Private Island pays tribute to the late Langley Alexander Walker AO

The Directors of Walker Group, the management and team of Kokomo Private Island and the travel industry at large have paid tribute this week to the island’s founder, Lang Walker AO, who passed away peacefully at home in Sydney last Saturday with his family by his side.

Lang formed the Walker company over 50 years ago and built a world-class business, shaping the Group into Australia’s largest privately owned property company. A visionary property developer, one of Lang’s proudest achievements and great legacies is the beautiful island resort that he built in Fiji, Kokomo Private Island; an exclusive tropical resort built with family, for family.

Located in the Kadavu Islands, south of Fiji’s mainland, Kokomo Private Island was designed and built by Lang in 2017 as a restorative sanctuary for families and an enticing retreat for couples. A true passion project, Lang transformed the island into a tropical oasis with a deep commitment to preservation of the pristine environment. Encircled by the Great Astrolabe Reef, the fourth largest on the planet, Kokomo Private Island is an undisturbed private paradise, spread across 140 acres, with sustainability at its heart.

Quality has always been and will remain a Walker hallmark, and Kokomo Private Island has won the highest accolades for excellence in luxury travel, both here in Australia and abroad.

Lang described Kokomo as the island of his dreams: “In Kokomo Private Island, I built the resort that I could never find on my travels; a place that was luxurious but simple, where family was at the centre of everything and privacy was paramount. Six years in, it has exceeded every plan, every idea, every vision I had, largely thanks to the incredible team who create the magic every day for guests. I’m as proud of Kokomo Private Island as I am of anything that I’ve ever done.”

Lang’s great wish was that the team at Kokomo Private Island continue to set new benchmarks for luxury island travel, and continue to deliver his vision for the ultimate family resort.

Kokomo Private Island will continue to be operated by the skilled Walker management team and the dedicated on-island Kokomo family.

Says David Gallant, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer David of Walker Group, “Lang’s vision will remain an enduring force through the Walker DNA and the Walker Way which he actively passed on – it is embedded in our culture and our modus operandi. Lang’s passion for Kokomo Private Island has been instilled in all of us, and we will proudly continue to deliver his dreams for the island and bring joy to its guests every day, just as he would have wished us to.”
