Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa’s Waitui Beach Club still amazes tourists, resort general manager, Alan Burrows proudly stressed on Friday night.

He spoke during a party for partner organisations. First to thank them for their support last year. Second to seek their support this year.

Waitui Beach Club opened at the Sofitel, Denarau in 2015 as a unique “adults only” feature. It includes its own pool, champagne bar, poolside cabanas, specialist restaurant and butler service. Club members also get special check-in and gym facilities.

Mr Burrows said the resort would continue to promote what the club had to offer to tourists.

“Our Waitui Beach Club, the ‘adult’s only area’ has been very good for us and it continues to get a lot of talks and so we continue to promote that,” Mr Burrows said.

Apart from the Waitui Beach Club, Mr Burrows said the resort encountered a slow start this year but they would continue to carry on the good work it had been doing over the years for its guests.

He said last year everyone was still concerned about the devastating effects of Tropical Cyclone Winston but nevertheless, Fiji still managed to keep the tourism industry running.

“I think everyone was concerned after Winston, that tourism was going to be affected a lot more. But I think Fiji pulled together and we got involved and I think everybody saw a good list for business at the end last year,” he said.

Mr Burrows added together with the 450 staff of the resort, they were very much content about being nominated for the upcoming ANZ Fiji Excellence in Tourism awards.

“I hope we win,” he said with laughter.

“There are a lot of good businesses in Fiji and so it’s not easy to win.

“If we do win we’ll be very happy, if we don’t we congratulate those who helped the overall Fijian tourism experience. We certainly enjoy being nominated. It’s a good reward for the team so their efforts are being recognised.”
