20 new rooms for hotel

TANOA Waterfront Hotel in Lautoka will add 20 new rooms this year.

This will boost occupancy at the hotel and will benefit to the Sugar City as well.

Area general manager for the Tanoa Hotels Group Matthew Gillespie said this would bring the total number of rooms at the hotel to 92, making it the largest hotel in Lautoka.

"This development is a reflection of our faith in the social market and also in our property," he said.

"This is not only to support our tourism industry but also to help the local market."

Mr Gillespie said he hoped the new rooms would be opened as early as the middle of next month.

"We want to provide quality accommodation to our guests and this is another way of doing that."

Competition will now be stiff among hotels in Lautoka and, according to Mr Gillespie, expanding the hotel was a step they were taking to not only better their services but provide tourists with something to look forward to when they visit the Sugar City.

In addition, he said 2013 was a stellar year for the group of hotels.

"I think last year was great for anyone in the tourism industry.

"This year as well, we hope the hotels grow in stature."
