With a strong focus to promote its newly-introduced underwater wedding package, Mana Island Resort and Spa has eyed various potential markets.

The resort chief operating officer, Hiroshi Matsumoto, said they were looking to tap those markets through strong partnerships with tour operators in the countries.

This was reiterated by Mr Matsumoto during a thanksgiving dinner in Nadi last week. Seven Chinese tour operators were hosted by the Mana Island Resort of the Mamanucas and Koro Sun Resort and Rainforest spa of Savusavu.

Joining the dinner were two Chinese coordinators and sales and marketing representatives from Beijing, China.

Mr Matsumoto said China had been a key market for the resort and he thanked the operators for their tremendous partnership which boosted the resort’s Chinese guest arrivals to 15 per cent since 2015.

“We would like to thank the tour operators for their strong partnership and we hope to continue this in the future and get more exposure in the Chinese markets,” Mr Matsumoto said. “China market is continually growing and has increased by 15 per cent compared to 2015 and is one of Mana island’s key market.

“For new seasons, we continue to work with them, closely make co-partnerships, offer products, update and provide them knowledge training and invite them to resort for familiarisation.”

He added the resort was now presenting its wedding and honeymoon packages in the markets and one of the trends was underwater weddings.

“We will also renovate our honeymoon bure this year, we’ll install  plunge pool, and change its category name to premium beach bure.”

He said this was expected to open in September.
