WORK on the Nawi Island Resort project in Savusavu is progressing well.

Although construction work is still in progress, the demand for the premises for weddings and other activities has grown.

Nawi Island Ltd staff member Asenaca May said the first wedding on the island would be this weekend.

"It is a positive sign for us and very encouraging to know people out there love to hold their functions on Nawi Island even while we're working on the bure," she said.

"We have also received interest from locals who want to travel to the island for a family day and other activities.

"It is encouraging and our boys have worked hard all this time to make the island a beautiful place."

Ms May said the resort was unique because they used mangroves from the area.

"It is all about our natural resources and our team have worked according to that. They make use of the trees on the island and nothing goes to waste.

"We are almost done with the first bure and the interest from customers to use the bure for certain activities has been positive."
