The All Blacks Sevens New Zealand Rugby team marked the end of their long stay at the iconic Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday in a special way.

Colleagues at Grand Pacific Hotel gathered to sing the traditional “Isa Lei” farewell song before the team departed.

They performed at the hotel lobby wishing the team safe travels and immense appreciation.

The song “Isa Lei” is a well-known Fijian love song, that is often used to farewell a person or group.

 

“Grand Pacific Hotel is very proud to have hosted the All Blacks Sevens Team and we are grateful that the team had an amazing time experiencing the iconic Grand Pacific Hotel combined with the renown Fijian hospitality” commented Lachlan Walker, Area General Manager— South Pacific, IHG Hotels & Resorts.

“We wish them all the best on their journey and look forward to welcoming them back again.”

This represented a display of appreciation, strength and unity.

The team commended on the remarkable hospitality, well thought and crafted food and beverage option catering to their special dietary requirements and how the team was looked after throughout the stay.

 

This brilliantly signifies the True Hospitality IHG delivers in 6,000+ hotels and resorts worldwide paired with unparalleled experiences and more.
