Following the recent events of Tropical Cyclone Winston which hit Fiji last month, Fiji Tourism and Fiji Airways are pleased to report that Fiji is back in business, with 90 percent of its resorts and hotels open and fully operational.
Although the effect of Winston’s fury, a category five cyclone and reportedly the most severe ever experienced, has certainly been felt, the level of damage has varied amongst the different regions with many areas experiencing minor or no damage.
While some resorts remain closed as they work through necessary repairs and assessments, thankfully, the majority of Fiji’s hotels and resorts have either been unaffected or have completed the minor repairs required to resume business as usual.
Amongst those open for business and welcoming guests are; InterContinental Natadola Golf Resort & Spa, The Naviti, The Sofitel Fiji Resort, Yasawa Island Resort & Spa, The Radisson Denarau Resort and Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort & Spa.
Malolo Island Resort, Likuliku Lagoon Resort, Hilton Fiji Beach Resort, Royal Davui and Qamea Resort & Spa have endured only slight damage, mostly through landscaping, gardens and plants, while Vomo Island Resort is currently working through repairs and looking forward to coming back bigger and better than ever in June.
The tourism industry is vital to the Fijian economy, and as this resilient island nation continues to get back on its feet, the local communities still have a long journey of recovery ahead of them after the devastation caused to schools, villages and basic infrastructure. Now more than ever, Fiji is urging visitors to continue coming and showing their support.
With just a three-hour flight from Sydney to its postcard-perfect beaches of pristine white sand, swaying palms and turquoise waters, its no wonder Fiji attracts 100,000’s of visitors to its islands every year, and now is not the time to stop visiting.
Take advantage of some great Fijian holiday bargains now, such as $199 airfares from Australia and New Zealand with Fiji Airlines and head to where happiness finds you.
