This is a favourite story of mine which consists of an entrepreneur buying and developing the island of Wakaya.

Wakaya (population between 300-600) is a privately owned island in the Lomaiviti Archipelago. (Check our maps section). It's situated at 17.65° South and 179.02° East, and is approximately 8km² or 5miles².
The island was bought in 1973 by David Gilmour, a gold-mining entrepreneur who also happens to be the founder of Fiji Water.
He has developed such things on the island as:
The highly exclusive Wakaya Club Fiji has 10 luxury bungalows with a staff of 300. It offers everything you'd expect in a secluded luxury resort. There are numerous private beaches, nature walks and hikes, and birdwatching some of the island's 36 species.
At the time of writing Wakaya Island was on sale for US$6.950,000.
