Owners of Musket Cove Island Resort and Marina on Malolo Lailai are investing $5 million in a new Trader Complex.

It will include a handicraft centre, shopping, 68-seat cafe, offices and a welcome pavilion.

Once called the Trader Supermarket, the complex was struck by lightning and burnt to the ground in April the past year.

Construction works started towards the end of last year and is expected to be complete in November, general manager, Garry Snodgrass said.

He said: “This will be our second dining place in the resort and a top deck to overlook the beautiful the marina.

“We will be moving our whole office to the new complex as well, making it the point of entry to the resort. We are very excited about this development.”

Upon arrival, he said guests would be treated to a Fijian experience where they will greeted at the pavilion by the complex’s friendly staff members.

The infrastructure will feature both colonial and Fijian architecture with hard wood and bamboo floors.

About Musket Cove

Musket Cove on Malolo Lailai island in the Mamanuca Group off Nadi is one of Fiji’s best known outer island resorts.

Mr Snodgrass added that they were also looking forward to the week-long annual Musket Cove Regatta which sails September 5-10.

This has been a traditional event founded by Fijian tourism icon and Musket Cove founder, the late Dick Smith, in 1984.
