Once again our tourism industry has shown resilience and the ability to immediately bounce back.

As the Attorney-General and Minister for Finance has already highlighted, the best way Australians and New Zealanders can support Fiji through this time of crisis is to keep visiting us.

Majority of the damage caused by Tropical Cyclone Winston has been away from our main tourism areas.

Our major tourist destinations were spared from the fury of the super storm and the resorts and hotels are operational.

Only a few resorts on the outer islands were seriously affected.

Denarau, Nadi, Coral Coast and most Mamanuca properties are fully operational and open for business as usual.

 

Exceptions

Castaway Island Resort is anticipating re-opening to guests on June 1 following repairs.

Outrigger Resorts Asia Pacific managing director, Darren Edmonstone, said a further announcement will be made if it is at all possible that the resort would open earlier.

After further assessment, following an initial re-open date of June 2016, Sheraton Resort & Spa Tokoriki Island has announced that it will be closed to guests until November 30.

Vomo Island Resort in the Mamanuca Island group is closed until May after sustaining damage in the cyclone.

Vomo’s director of sales and marketing, Karen Marvell, said: “It’s great to watch the global community get behind Fiji and assist both financially and physically when they need it most.”

Jean Michel Cousteau Fiji Island Resort, a five-star eco resort at Savusavu on Vanua Levu, is closed for repairs.
