The three-night gourmet experience will take place from the 8th to the 11th of February, seamlessly blending the island’s pristine natural beauty and produce with Chef Lennox Hastie’s culinary mastery to create an extraordinary journey for foodies.

WELCOME DINNER – The adventure begins with a welcome dinner for island guests created by Lennox and Kokomo Private Island’s Head Chefs Andy Bryant and Caroline Oakley.  Set against the magical backdrop of the beach at sunset, this is a feast that pays homage to beautiful local ingredients, telling a subtle story of flavours, textures and aromas of produce cooked over embers.

MASTERCLASS – Dive into the world of gastronomic artistry at Lennox’s exclusive masterclass, to be held at Dravuni Grand Residence.  Uncover the secrets of culinary alchemy as Lennox generously shares his insider tips and kitchen wisdom, with the added pleasure of his signature snacks.

BEACH BBQ – Travel to nearby, yet very secluded Namara Private Island where a ‘desert island luncheon’ will be prepared over open fire, hosted by Lennox and Kokomo’s Head Chef Andy.


“Kokomo Private Island is all about giving our guests an experience like nowhere else in the world and Lennox Hastie has an incredible track record of delivering the very best fusion of flavours.

I can’t wait to taste the dishes he produces by mixing fire and fresh ingredients from our local Kadavu Islands and teaming up with our expert resident chefs, Caroline and Andy.

This will be a once-in-a-lifetime culinary adventure for our guests and we look forward to welcoming you to our island home.” Lang Walker – Founder of Kokomo Private Island.
