Savusavu’s tourist attraction is set to expand further when the Hot Spring project is completed by the end of May, weather permitting.

The project’s groundbreaking ceremony will take place today and will be officiated by the Minister for Local Government, Housing and Community Development, Premila Kumar.

The $40,000 project funded by the Commonwealth Local Government Forum is expected to boost tourism activity through eco-tourism in the Hidden Paradise.

 

Savusavu Town Council Chief Executive Officer, Seema Dutt said: “The project (Savusavu Hot Spring) is expected to be completed by the end of next month if good weather prevails.”

“The development is part of the ministry’s commitment to ensure Savusavu achieved its Blue Town model goals.”

She added the area would be used for commercial food sales in a tourist-attractive manner.

The project will include boulders around the hot spring area, seating arrangements and the construction three bure-like-houses at the site.

Add Value To Nawi Project
Already, the Nawi Island International Marina, Balaga Bay, is already taking shape, with developers eyeing within the yachting season to open a part of the marina.

Fiji’s yachting season is between April and December.

With a restaurant and fuel docks serving both local and international yachts, the Marina is soon to be-come a sailor’s haven.

 

Nawi Island Pty Ltd’s managing director, Michael Gann, said: “After much anticipation and preparation, pile driving and pontoon manufacture commenced at the beginning of 2022 and we continue to work to accelerate the schedule in order to participate in the next yachting season.”

Nawi Island currently has four contractors working on site to build the Marina and related facilities.
