Another $2 million is projected to be spent on an overall facility upgrade at the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort on the Coral Coast.

Resort General Manager Peter Hopgood said the resort is committed to being among the elite resorts in the country, galvanizing the long term vision of the Fijian tourism market.

Mr Hopgood said: “We have just completed a $0.5 million dollar upgrade of our main resort pool and it looks amazing.”

“We will also be undertaking another $2 million upgrade of facilities at the resort over to next eight months.

In regards to the swimming pool, they re-surfaced the whole pool, installed new shade areas, installed new lighting and landscaped the gardens.

 

Occupancy

Currently the resort is operating at 80 percent occupancy.

“We are slightly down on the previous year but this was to be expected due to the impact of Cyclones Winston and Zena,” he added.

However Mr Hopgood added the forecast for May onwards is promising.

“We are very much dominated by guests travelling from Australia which is 82 percent, followed by New Zealand at 8%, Europe at 4%, and 2% from the USA.

 

ANZAC day celebration

Meanwhile, the Resort will be celebrating ANZAC Day on April 25 at 6am at a Dawn Service just as in previous years.

Anzac Day remains a very special day on the calendar of events at Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort.

“Every year we conduct a dawn service on our front beach followed by a sausage sizzle. We invite all Aussies and Kiwis residing or holidaying in Fiji to come and join us on this special day,” Mr Hopgood said.
