Koro Sun Resort in Savusavu has invested approximately $2.5million to rebuild 25 bures which were damaged during the Tropical Cyclone Winston early this year.

Of these, five were floating bures and the resort has managed to get things up and running for the first time in nine months.

Resort general manager Margie Rayawa said the bures were partially and severely damaged during the cyclone.

“The effects of Winston certainly affected operations since the Resort lost six months of business,” said Ms Rayawa.

She said the floating bures are one-of-a-kind floating rooms.

“It is the ultimate adventure in sleeping over the water, each bure comes with a private kayak to explore the lagoon right from your doorstep.”

Ms Rayawa said they are excited after months of rebuilding.

The resort’s famous floating bures are now in operation and will be welcoming their first guest with a 30 per cent discount off rates now.

 

Background

Koro Sun Resort has been in operation since 1999 and employs 100 staff.

Most of their client base is from North America, but there has been a significant increase in the Australian market this year.

The Resort is owned by the Young family whose main goal is developing the land into one of Savusavu’s finest Resort and Villa communities.

The resort is almost back into having all 51 bures in operation after significant damages from Cyclone Winston.
