    Gorgeous.

    Drooling over the pictures just made me realize how much I really hate tsunami's. I'm paranoid... I couldn't live that close to the beach. I know they can happen anywhere, but it doesn't help to be in the firing line either.

    I wonder if Typhoon Tomas got this-it just hit parts of Fiji very hard. Too bad we do not know the exact location.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    a little about the owners......

    No man is an island, the saying goes, but David Gilmour is all that and so much more. The Canada-born entrepreneur has made his mark on everything from housewares (he brought Dansk to North America) to beverages (he founded Fiji Water) to the Internet (Gilmour’s latest venture is Zinio, a digital-media firm aiming to revolutionize the way magazines and newspapers are consumed). But get him started on the subject of his life’s delight and one is treated to a paean to Wakaya, the 2,200-acre private island in Fiji where he and his wife, Jill, spend four months every year. “It is the most perfect thing,” David declares of his South Seas paradise. “Most men I know want to own a saloon or an island. I chose the island.”
    The centerpiece of the couple’s getaway is their Wakaya Club & Spa, an eco-paradise where the food is grown organically, the dinner table is laden with native fallow deer and wild pigs, and boldface folk can avoid the glare of paparazzi flashbulbs. Only 14 couples are allowed at a time, among them Prince Felipe of Spain and his wife, Letizia, who spent their honeymoon here, and Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban. The Gilmours are also prime benefactors of their part-time community, having built a village for the Fijian workers, with a charming church and a school considered the finest in the archipelago. The most recent addition to the array of structures is a new home for the Gilmours. Called Sega na Leqa (Fijian for No Worries), it is a one-bedroom pavilion where modern architecture, native stone and wood, and Asian antiques meld into something close to magic.

    I just walked around staring at everything,” says Paramount Pictures CEO turned cancer activist Sherry Lansing. She and her husband, Oscar-­winning director William Friedkin, were among Sega na Leqa’s first guests. “Looking through those windows at the ocean makes you feel you are floating. David and Jill’s place is one of the most beautiful houses I’ve ever seen. It’s paradise on earth.”

    The more I look at it, the more I love it.

    So it's a VIP resort rather than a "home" but it's still gorgeous.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I'd risk a tsunami for that.
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    tropical islands are paradise in my opinion, but you can't actually live in paradise for extended periods of time.
