Fuji Island by Fujifilm: The luxury private island designed for Instagrammers

It used to be that holidays inspired us to take photos. But according to Alex Zitser, marketing manager for Fujifilm Australia, the converse is – at least sometimes – the case. Our mania for photos is driving our travel choices. "Aussies are now booking holidays based on how their travel pics will look on Instagram," he says.

To that end, Fujifilm has created "The island made for the perfect Instagram: Fuji Island."

According to Zitser, it's for camera-ready types ranging "From professional photographers to want-to-be travel influencers."

But it's also a luxury private island near Fiji's picturesque Mamanuca group offering exclusive-use bookings. It just so happens that the textbook Pacific sunsets, shimmering lagoon, volcanic cliffs and white-sand beaches are accompanied by access to state-of-the-art photography equipment. And if you'd rather be in front of the lens, there's a personal photographer on call to use all that and take your picture.

The 8000-square-metre retreat with its own helipad is home to three villas set at the island's high point. All have wrap-around decks and there's an infinity pool.

Use of Fujifilm's latest X-T3 mirrorless digital cameras, lenses, and underwater cameras comes with the tariff, as well as a staff of nine on hand, featuring two chefs, as all meals are covered, along with wine and cocktails.

So is, among other water sports apparatus, use of a long boat with a captain to operate it. It's to go island hopping, lest you run out of selfie backdrops on your own little piece of Insta-paradise.

From around $3100 ($US2200) a night, for up to two people. The island can accommodate up to eight at around $1552 ($US1102.40) extra a night, a person.
