Forbes - - THE WORLD’S BILLIONAIRES -

TRO­PHY: The prop­erty devel­oper bought a 140-acre pri­vate is­land in Fiji in 2011 and spent mil­lions fix­ing it up. Re­named Kokomo, the pseu­do­nym of a com­poser whose mu­sic he played as a child and the name of all but one boat Walker has ever owned, the is­land opened to vis­i­tors in March 2017. The lux­ury re­sort is en­closed by the Great Astro­labe Reef, and is ac­ces­si­ble to trav­el­ers only via pri­vate sea­plane or he­li­copter. Guests can book the whole is­land for $130,000 per night.
