Nawi is an amazing new marina development at Savusavu, that will boost tourism and have many additional indirect economic benefits to the Northern Region.

This was highlighted by the chief executive officer for Fiji Revenue and Customs Service, Mark Dixon during his recent visit to Nawi Island.

“These developments help showcase Fiji on the world stage, as a destination of first choice, maximizing the opportunities for tourists to visit the beautifully natural coastline of Vanua Levu,” he said.

 

Mr Dixon was accompanied by FRCS board chair, Fay Yee, to witness the development on the is- land, a few metres off the shores of Savusavu Town.

The multi-million dollar development will feature a fully serviced international marina with restaurant, bar, harbor master building and retail stores.

Followed by a boat yard facility, with a Yacht Club, Nautical Museum, Private Island homes, Fiji Style Villas, Korovesa Marina Apartments, and a world-class Resort and Spa providing an unsurpassed barefoot elegance.

The Marina will be home to 132 marina berths, including 21 dedicated super-yacht slips up to 85m. This will soon be followed by the installation of Marina Services which includes water, sewerage pump out, power, fuel gas facilities and 24hr security and WIFI.

At an estimated cost of $136 million investment, FRCS is supportive of the Nawi development which would add a much-needed boost to the economy, present positive growth in and around the Northern Division, and with the targeted potential of improving the livelihoods of residents in this hidden paradise.

Nawi is opening doors and encouraging locals to be innovative with new business ideas and ventures.

“We’re taking a local approach to all servicing and retail resources so that we create opportunities for Savusavu residents, with the aim of business growth in the Northern Division,” said Nawi’s Investors Advisor, Ron Valenta.

Meanwhile, Nawi’s latest accommodation products will be launched soon for sale by Bailey’s Real Estate on their global website.

Phase 1, the fully serviced International Marina, is expected to be completed this December.
