Visiting Taveuni is on top of Nicolette Rogers bucket list.

The Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay, Food & Beverage Manager joined the Marriott International, Fiji family as part of the pre-opening team.

Ms Rogers was among women celebrating Women in Leadership this month.

When asked, which mentors or role models had positively impacted her in her career, and what’s one lesson that they taught, Mrs Rogers replied: “Throughout my career I have had male role models.”

“Back then during my Starwood days when working at the Denarau Complex property, my role model was Biu Fong who was the Banquet Manager while I was his Banquet Supervisor. He had taught me so many things.”

“One lesson he taught me was to not work hard but work smart!”

“Since I joined Marriott Momi Bay in 2017, I can still remember just like it was yesterday when meeting my mentor Achim Herterich.”

“He has so much respect for people and also listens to opinions when making decision.”

“The one lesson I learnt from him is ‘Believe in yourself’ you do that nothing can stop you!”

“Like how our new President Stephanie Linnartz said ‘take risks’.”

What’s one place you’d take every visitor to in Fiji and why?
I would take every visitor to Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay because this is the only property on the mainland of Viti Levu that has a unique feature of the Over Water Bures.

Not only that it features the Overwater Bures but it also has this breath-taking view of the Infinity Pool where you can sip on cocktails and watch the beautiful sunset as it disappears into the ocean with shooting beams of yellow, orange, and red light into the blue sky.

Hhhmmm..I love my Lamb Curry with Garlic naan bread at the New World, Namaka.

Their curry is the best

 

What’s your favourite place in Fiji for a pie/coffee?
