The new general manager of the Hot Springs Hotel in Sa­vusavu believes that Fiji is an attractive place to invest.

Michelle Investment Limited purchased the hotel in 2016. They are now hoping to give some­thing back to the locals.

General manager Sam Liang said: “We won’t change the name of the hotel because this is one of the oldest hotels in Savusavu and probably in Fiji and we would like to maintain this as long as we can.

“Fiji was really affected during the Tropical Cyclone Winston in 2016 and it destroyed our restau­rant, kitchen, part of the swim­ming pool and the fence.

“We have made the fence, re­built the restaurant and the kitchen while repairing of the pool is still ongoing.”

Mr Liang hopes that investing in this hotel would benefit the company and Fijians.

“For this investment, we hope it is a win-win situation and would like to create opportunities for locals,” he said.

“I want people to be able to gath­er and have a place to have fun and not to be bored during week­ends which means that our hotel is not open to our guests only but also for locals.

“Doing this would make us dif­ferent from other resorts and ho­tels.”

The company has 40 employees, with some positions still vacant, Mr Liang said.

“We are still hiring people to fill in position for waitress, bartend­er and chef,” he said.

“We are hoping to connect the hot spring to the pool and have it open for 24 hours.

“People can also use the pool for training purposes. We are trying to make this investment succeed.

“We did our research before we purchased this hotel. Fiji is a very good place to invest.”

Renovations and repair of the hotel are still underway.

Michelle Investment hopes to have an official opening in July or August this year, Mr Liang said.
