IT was New Year's Day with a unique touch as InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa treated 650 guests to an elaborate purple party evening.

Guests enjoyed a night of torch-lighting, performances by tribal drummers, choreographed entertainment by the VOU dance group and fire dancers and the Batiri Village choir; at the stroke of midnight 4000 balloons descended in a cloud of purple and white.

General manager Scott Williams said the guest reviews stated the "entertainment was top class" and that it was a "fantastic success" with a "stunning venue".

"We are delighted that our guests made special memories and celebrated the coming of 2014 with a flurry of excitement, dance and music," he said.

"The resort has had a successful year with some of the highlights including winning Australasia's Leading Golf Resort at the World Travel Awards and making the Gold List for Luxury Travel magazine."

He said resort owner, the Fiji National Provident Fund, was of great help along with the team of tourism stakeholders, guests and staff members.

"We look forward to another great year in 2014 and as the people's resort, contributing back to the people of Fiji," Mr Williams said.
