Radisson Blu confident in 2013 AON Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards

RADISSON Blu Resort is confident it will do well at this year's AON Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards in Nadi tomorrow night.

Nominated in two categories, the resort is no stranger to the annual awards ceremony as it took home the top prize for the Fine Dining Award in 2011 for its Cross Restaurant. The resort has been on a rebranding exercise since 2011 which saw its name changed from Radisson Resort Fiji Denarau Island to Radisson Blu Resort Fiji.

General manager Gerard Knight said although the resort was up against stiff competition, they were confident of doing well on Friday night.

"We have a great team behind us and once again our restaurant is being nominated in the Fine Dining category and we've won that award before," he said.

"Our performance last year was very good and we are happy with what we have achieved so far."

Also in the running in the Fine Dining category are InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa's Navo Restaurant, Outrigger's Ivi Restaurant and Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa's V Restaurant.

Raddison Blu Resort Fiji is also nominated in the Accommodation Deluxe category, a nomination Mr Knight said was a welcome recognition, especially since the resort had been working hard to upgrade its rooms.

"That is one of the areas that we have been working really hard in and it's really good for us that we have been recognised for it," he added.

In the Accommodation Deluxe category, the resort is up against Lomani Island Resort from the Mamanucas and Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji Resort from the Coral Coast.
