Resort set to open in 2016

CIVIL marine work and mock up rooms for the Fiji Marriot Resort at Momi Bay, Sigatoka, have been successfully completed.

Fiji National Provident Fund chief executive officer Aisake Taito explained while construction had been progressing well, the total cost of the project could not be revealed.

"Budget for the construction work is still under tender assessment and cannot be disclosed," he said.

"In terms of work in Momi, the civil marine work and the mock up room has been successfully completed."

He reiterated that FNPF signed an agreement with Marriott International to manage the 250-key Fiji Marriott Resort at Momi Bay, which is scheduled to open in 2016.

According to Mr Taito, the project was a critical part of the fund's investment rehabilitation and reform program, with the objective to recover members' funds invested in the hotel project.

"The selection was made through a comprehensive process and the fund is now confident that the partnership with Marriott will provide impetus in the fund's efforts to successfully rehabilitate this project."

FNPF announced in April that the key advantage for the selection of Marriott included bringing a new internationally recognised brand to the Fiji market.

"Marriott's past experience with the development, and Marriott's strong presence in Asia will augur well for Fiji," said Mr Taito.
