International tourism bookings are looking busy for December at Suncoast.

And bookings are expected to increase from 50 per cent capacity, to as much as 80 per cent, from March to October, Suncoast secretary Simon Doughty said.

“We would be out of the woods with the cyclone season by then,” he said.

Suncoast will resume operations from late November.

But between the Nadi-Suva corridor,  where the tourism market is slightly different from that of Suncoast, operators reported an increase in bookings and activities during the Prophet Mohammed Day long weekend.

 

Radisson Blu Resort Fiji

Since the re-opening of the Suva border, weekend bookings have increased at Radisson Blu, general manager, Charles Homsy said.

Radisson Blu Resort Fiji has continued to accommodate our domestic market with packages to suit the demand, he said.

Prophet Mohammed Day long weekend was busy for the resort, with preparation now in place for yet another busy weekend next month.

“We have a planned Diwali theme night and entertainment on Thursday, November, 4, with a tailor-made buffet for those wanting to celebrate at the resort during this special occasion,” Mr Homsy said.

November 4 is Diwali, which falls on a weekday.

“For those who won’t be able to make the weekend, we have arranged the same special on the Saturday November 6 weekend,” Mr Homsy said.

Radisson Blu highly recommends booking in advance, Mr Homsy said.

The resort encourages some walk-ins as usual on the weekends, he said.

“Our team is always prepared to accommodate guests where available,” Mr Homsy said.

“However, we encourage everyone to make a reservation prior, to avoid any disappointments when arriving at the resort.

“Making a reservation is essential.”

 

Warwick Fiji

The Warwick Fiji said it had around 500 guests at the weekend, and was extending the same specials through the coming Diwali celebrations in November.

The resort was booked to 90 per cent capacity, SunBiz was told.

The Naviti on the other hand, remains closed, with a likely reopening planned for December.

 

Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort

Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort in Sigatoka received high bookings at the weekend.

The Korotogo resort opens from Fridays to Sundays nights only, for October and November.
