A 15-minute flight or short boat ride east of Suva, the Lomaiviti Group is a world away. The group is comprised of nine rugged main islands and a few smaller ones dotting the Pacific Ocean and the Koro Sea. Most of the islands are home to pre-European villages. A 200-meter cliff called "Chieftain's Leap" on Wakaya Island was the jumping point for a chief and many of his followers who
faced capture by advancing enemies in 1848. The island is now owned by Fiji Water mogul David Gilmour and is the site of one of the country's most exclusive resorts. On Leleuvia, guests can walk from the small rustic resort to a large metal "Kannibal Pot" in the middle of the island.
