Ahura Resorts has set the benchmark to follow not just for a locally-owned resorts but also for the Pacific.

Malolo Island Resort and Likuliku Lagoon Resort were awarded as the top resorts in Australia and The South Pacific last month. With more than 300,000 travelers that took part in the Condé Nast Traveler’s 30th annual Readers’ Choice Awards, Malolo Island Resort was ranked number one, scoring 98.39 points while Likuliku Lagoon Resort ranked number two with 97.77 points.

Ahura’s Fijian owner and Managing Director, Tony Whitton, said it was big news, not only for both of their resort teams, but for Fiji as a destination. That they have Fiji resort experiences continually being counted amongst some of the best in the world and holding their own with other famous hotel and resort brands some of who are giants in the industry.

“We believe we have firmly established and filled a niche in Fiji on all things Fijian, from traditional Fijian architecture and experiences, to service delivery and unique product offerings,” he said.

“This including Fiji’s first and only authentic over-water bures in a natural, ocean lagoon.

“We thank past guests, Conde Nast readers and the travel industry at large for this incredible accolade.”

Mr Whitton said the resorts are unique as they are not part of an international hotel chain.

“Malolo and Likuliku is family owned by Fijians and we market to the world, using small and very talented Sales and marketing team based in Fiji.

“Our marketing is pitched to clients that want a unique, boutique and highly personalised resort experience.”

Mr Whitton added that Malolo Island is a family resort where as Likuliku is for couples only.

“We are a Fijian Company that strongly believes Tourism is a force for good.

“With Malolo Island and Likuliku, it is a testament to the special connection between the developer and the resource owners.

“It is an amazing partnership where we realize that as developers, we are to be good stewards of the ocean and reefs entrusted to our care. And the resource owners can derive employment and improvement of their social and economic wellbeing.

“At our resorts, we are proud of our Fijian heritage, our culture, our tradition and we share this with so many international visitors that are looking for rest and inspiration,” said Mr Whitton.

Meanwhile, the other Fijian resorts that were recognised were;Namale Island Resort, it was ranked fourth with 97.62 points and Nanuku Auberge Resort Fiji, was ranked 16 with 92.86 points.
