ABOUT 300 New Zealanders chartered a plane and took over Sonaisali Island Resort over the weekend for a $F0.5million three-day party.
Dubbed the Bluesky Rave Party, the event was one of the first of its kind to be held in Fiji.
Party organiser Richard Henry said the event was organised for the purpose of bringing more tourists to Fiji.
"We wanted to come here and promote Fiji as a great place to visit and a place where we can come and relax and just have some great fun," said Mr Henry. "We spent more than half a million Fijian dollars to charter an Air New Zealand Airbus and renting out the whole of Sonaisali Island for our three-day stay here," said Mr Henry.
"I targeted most of the high class people of New Zealand and young adults who were willing to spend their money on drinks, resorts and parties. I told them that Fiji was a great place for all of those things and they were willing to come here."
Mr Henry said about 304 people were part of the rave party.
Equipped with their own disc jockeys, the group partied into the early hours of the morning on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the resort's poolside bar and Zero Bar.
Food and beverage and operations manager Wayne Annan said they were excited to have hosted the Kiwis during their stay.
"We provide an ideal venue for these kinds of events because not only are we secluded from all of the other resorts, as not to disturb those living nearby, we are also located not too far away from Nadi Town so our guests can travel to town to do their shopping and visit other places," said Mr Annan.
