ONE of the country's most unique tourism features, the floating entertainment platform known as Cloud 9, may reopen for business early next week.
Nadi district officer Jiuta Waqavonovono said once environment impact assessments were completed, the entertainment centre would be given the green light to operate.
"We will have a better idea of where we are at by Tuesday next week," he said.
Previously located one kilometre off world-renowned surf spot, Cloudbreak, the entertainment pontoon has now been relocated closer to Malololailai Island. Managing director Bar'el Wachtel said after successful negotiations with traditional landowners and meeting the requirements defined in the Surfing Areas Decree, he was keen to open again.
"After five months of closure it would be good to be back in business," he said.
