Meet our inaugural Bulanaires – the people rich in happiness!

On the International Day of Happiness, 20 March 2019, we are very excited to help launch Bulanaires on Fiji’s Suncoast.

What Is A Bulanaire?

A Bulanaire is someone who is rich in happiness.

Anyone can be a Bulanaire, its a mindset.

And The Bulanaires List?

It is a list celebrating people from around the globe who are rich in happiness, those that reflect Fiji’s ‘Bula Spirit’.

It’s a creative twist of the popular billionaires lists that are globally distributed around the same time as the International Day of Happiness.

The people on this list are being recognised as ‘Bulanaires’ with the vision that they will share their happiness with the world.

“We think the world is talking about happiness the wrong way, you’d notice that in the happiness polls of countries, Fiji often doesn’t feature in the top 10, 20, or top 50.

“In fact in the recent United Nations 2018 World Happiness Report, Fiji did not feature in the top 150 countries as a measure of happiness.

“That’s because in their measure of happiness they are talking about wealth and GDP but we all know that money doesn’t necessarily make you happy and that’s what we want to change.

“So taking inspiration from Forbes magazine’s list of billionaires, we’re going to start our own list — a list of our Bulanaires.
