Seventh Heaven Fiji is a floating platform featuring a restaurant and bar along with leisure facilities on board.

The floating day club will be located near Malolo Island in the Mamanuca group, when it is launched as Fiji’s latest floating pontoon with a current target of July.

Seventh Heaven Fiji general manager Sanjay Kumar Deo said the uncertainty of current times propelled them to work harder and ensure business operated as usual.

“Our whole team is working extremely hard in the background to ensure we are all ready to go when restrictions are lifted.”

Seventh Heaven Fiji employs 15 workers and will increase to over 40 employees when it is in full operation.

Project and investment

The Seventh Heaven Fiji floating platform offers all the modern comforts of a home setting.

Owned by a private consortium, the project cost over $3 million, and took approximately three years to build at Fantasy Island in Nadi.

Mr Deo said the floating facility could hold up to 150 people comfortably, at any one time.

“The platform is designed to provide a family friendly atmosphere, with a Fijian background offering modern comforts in crystal clear and safe snorkelling waters in the Mamanucas,” he said.

Seventh Heaven Fiji features a gift shop, ice cream and smoothie bar, and facilities for people who are physically disabled.

Mr Deo said free Wi-Fi, safe snorkelling and other water  activities, comfortable  seating  and lounges for large group activities such as kava drinking, with local Fijian songs and cultural displays, will also be featured.

The company invested $450,000 in an aluminium multi-hull catamaran which it named Seventh Heaven.

Built by Wailoaloa-based Cobra Boats and Marine Engineering Fiji, the  catamaran will  service  the  Port  Denarau Marina and Seventh Heaven Fiji platform daily with a maximum of 45 passengers one way.

“The hull is made of steel which has a specially designed protective coating that will last for over 30 year, which means means no harmful rust particles will enter the surrounding environment.
