GPH unveils colonial look

GRAND Pacific Hotel management is leaving no stone unturned as it strives to maintain the colonial look of one of Fiji's iconic landmarks.

GPH general manager Eugen Diethelm said this "colonial look" extended to their business attire with staff members modelling their new uniforms in Suva yesterday.

He said they had different sets of uniforms for different departments at the hotel.

"There will be four different types of uniforms to give that colonial look.

"The uniforms were designed by an Australian designer.

"The designer is a lady from Sydney who also has a company in Hong Kong."

He said the colonial theme for the hotel staff members' corporate wear complemented the 1920-1930s era as well as the hotel's interior and exterior designs.

Mr Diethelm said the uniforms were designed in three colours — blue, light brown and dark brown.

"Blue is for the sea, light brown for the white sandy beach and dark blue for dark Fijian chocolate. The uniform would be worn during the soft and grand opening of the hotel."
