Whisper of happenings in the West. Bidding for the Starwood

resort properties on Denarau is said to now be down to three contenders.

Plan is understood to be the successful bidder will own the properties. These will then continue to be marketed and operated for the owner by Starwood, under its popular Sheraton and Westin brands.

Similar arrangements exist with some of the other major hotel chains operating here.

The Fiji National Provident Fund, for example, owns the InterContinental Fiji at Natadola and Holiday Inn in Suva. These are in turn marketed and operated for it by the global InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) under those brands.No respect

The driver of LT 2148 on Thursday nearly bumped a pedestarian using the zebra crossing in front of the Korovou Corrections Centre, Suva.

The pedestrian was crossing when the driver failed to stop.  He had to jump out of the way. The driver continued to speed off and this was witnesed by Mickey Bird.

Waiting workers

Some current and former workers of a well-known hotel in Suva were at Ballantine Church Hall for the SODELPA constituency meeting, to air their grievances over allegedly unfair treatment. The meeting did not take place.
