The term "once in a lifetime experience" is often freely bandied about, especially when it comes to holidays but we have to admit you'd be hard pressed to find a more apt phrase for this Fijian offering. Nanuku Island is a marine and wildlife sanctuary in the South Pacific, and all 10 acres can be yours. That's right, an entire island all to yourself, well not including the coconut trees and baby turtles that roam the shore. The accommodation, is divided into two traditional Fijian-style homes, both only 10 steps from the ocean and there are 8 beds in total. So that means it can sleep 16 right? So we've worked out that means that every guest would only have to pay just over $200 per week to stay. Start gathering your mates now!
