$3M dream complex

BOBBY Khan says he dreams of the impossible, of things people wouldn't even think of, good things, that is. Like his new $3million shopping mall in the middle of nowhere at Nadi's peri urban division in Votualevu.

And with a name like U Save, its no wonder people are asking about why the mall is located anywhere but Nadi Town. "This mall is successful. I'm bringing to Fiji concepts from New Zealand and Australia—that's my aim. It's our job as investors to get it on and grow. Fiji is missing out on so many things," he said.

Mr Khan unveiled his future plans which include the construction of a four—star luxurious resort especially built for the local market. The 60-bure resort at Sonaisali will be rented at half the rate offered by hotels and resorts in Nadi.

"If the other resorts offer $300 a night for a room, we will counter that with $120 to $150 a night at our resort," he said. The resort will also include backpacker lodgings.

Mr Khan has big dreams to build a hospital at Sonaisali that will be host expatriate doctors and overseas trained nurses. "The expat nurses can train local nurses," he said.

Mr Khan has also set his sights on building a retirement village for those who want to settle in the tropics. Fruition of these dreams are expected in the next three years at the most.
