Have a hankering to go diving in Fiji but not sure whether the resorts there are back on their feet after last February’s Tropical Cyclone Winston?
Well, at least one resort — Volivoli Beach Resort — recently announced it’ll be back open for business by November.
Rebuilding efforts are well into their third month and “on track,” according to Resort General Manager Nick Darling:
“As we are making considerable progress we are confident that we will be reopening the Resort on 1st of November 2016. This is well ahead of our initial predictions immediately after the cyclone. Fiji is getting back on its feet and it will be business as usual at Volivoli.
“We are very fortunate as our background business is construction and this has enabled us to move forward with Volivoli Beach Resort’s reopening. We are grateful for all of the support shown to our staff and family since TC Winston. Our key message is that Volivoli Beach Resort will open bigger and better than before the storm. We are extending our main building and renovating our kitchen, restaurant, dinning and guest services area. We will also be adding an additional 8 Luxury Ocean View Villas with individual swimming pools to our room inventory later in 2017.”
