Selling his shares in Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji and selling the Castaway Island Fiji resort was a decision made not for money, says prominent tourism leader Geoffrey Shaw.
Speaking after the official announcement that the two resorts would now be owned by the Outrigger Hotels Hawaii, Mr Shaw said the rationale behind his decision was to secure the future of the two resorts.
However, the Fijian tourism industry has not seen the last of Mr Shaw.
“I am immensely proud of the global positioning both Fiji properties enjoy in world tourism markets.  From humble beginnings over thirteen years ago for Outrigger Fiji and the 20 year journey for Castaway from receivership to today’s stunning success,  bear testament to the  dedication and support of all those involved with The two resorts over many years.
“You would appreciate it has been an emotionally difficult and enormous decision for me to pass over the reins of ownership.
“However, this decision has been made in the full knowledge that Outrigger embraces and understands the Fijian culture, appreciates our more than 800 staff and is committed to further enhance both resorts as the years progress.”
He said that cross training and upskilling would benefit employees of both resorts.
