Wakaya is a 2,200-acre island in the Fiji archipelago. Here, organic ginger grows in a nutrient-rich soil created by thousands of years of natural erosion of volcanic rock. This volcanic soil is high in beneficial minerals, especially trace minerals that are vital to human wellness.
It remained uninhabited for 140 years, until 1973, when wellness-advocate, FIJI Water founder, and life-long entrepreneur David Gilmour and his wife Jill purchased island.
Due to the geographic isolation of the island, organic farming is a necessity. It also maintains the purity of the island and ensures the health and well-being of Wakaya’s culture.
No machinery touches our ginger crops, only caring hands cultivate the earth. No chemically treated water is ever used in irrigation. All washing of crops prior to processing is done with fresh rainwater from our catchment system.
On the island of Wakaya, David and Jill Gilmour have created a small eco-friendly resort that offers guests an experience of renewal and discovery through a luxurious vacation in this unspoiled corner of the world. In 1990, The Wakaya Club & Spa was opened as a small, private luxury resort that offers an extraordinary vacation experience to a handful of guests.
This serene retreat provides gracious living, sophisticated, international cuisine and unparalleled leisure opportunities, including some of the finest scuba diving and snorkeling in one of the most secluded and pristine corners of the South Pacific.
David realized that keeping Wakaya pure in perpetuity would require a self sustaining economy that could support the local Fijian residents and curtail any pressure to “urbanize” the island. Wakaya Perfection was founded to bring the islands unique healing treasures to the world and to provide Wakaya with the ongoing resources to preserve its pristine environment.
David later met Todd Smith, a accomplished health advocate, successful entrepreneur and 20-year veteran of direct selling. Todd was inspired by David’s the story of Wakaya and proposed that network marketing would be the optimal way to share this story, and products, with the world.
Today, Wakaya Perfection offers an unique business opportunity, unparalleled anywhere in the world, for individuals with a passion for purity and health.
