There is so much more to Mere Rakoroi than meets the eye.

Apart from being the General Manager of Tanoa Plaza Hotel, Ms Rakoroi is the only female Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) board director.

She hails from Yalava village in the province of Macuata with maternal links to Somosomo village, Taveuni.

Ms Rakoroi was among the first employees, when YP Reddy, the Chairman of Tanoa Hotels and the Reddy Group of Companies bought the Tanoa Plaza in 2003.

She knows Tanoa Plaza better than anyone.

 

Ms Rakoroi has overseen and provided the leadership when the Tanoa Plaza Hotel Suva was undergoing the $10 million refurbishment.

Throughout the years, the Tanoa Plaza Hotel has been the preferred choice of many diplomats, Government officials, corporate travellers, and international and local businesses in Suva.

The number one priority for the Tanoa Hotel Group is health and safety.

“The team at the Tanoa Plaza Hotel extend a warm welcome to all,” Ms Rakoroi said.

“Irrespective of whether it’s business or pleasure, the Tanoa Plaza Hotel is the place to stay in Suva.”
