The tourism sector has reported full capacity for the capital city this week, as rugby and fashion fans gather for an eventful weekend.

Tourism Fiji said the good tidings means well for businesses.

Two of Suva’s major hotels, Tanoa Plaza and Grand Pacific Hotel, are at capacity, Tourism Fiji Chief Executive Officer, Brent Hill, said.

 

“I was talking to the major hotels who have been 100 per cent full in Suva all week, and even the smaller ones are very busy,” he said.

“With tourism, this translates to more business for our restaurants, bars, experiences and shops, which is great.”

“The West is also busy as we’re seeing more and more Kiwis join the Aussies and US tourists.”

 

Tourism Fiji is in partnership with the Drua and Fiji Airways to bring tourists across to watch the games and stay.

“We want them to have the best away-game experience you can have,” Mr Hill said.

The Drua meet the Highlanders in Suva on Saturday.

 

The scenario has pushed Pacific Harbour to play a role, while others like Novotel Lami remain closed, he said.

“It has put good pressure on some hotels to open, while some properties are considering more rooms,” Mr Hill said.

“We may have to think outside the box, to work with Air BnB, to see where they can help.”
