Tourism hopes

TOURISM is not an industry traditionally associated with Ba but a local businessman hopes to prove otherwise.

Pravin Chauhan, the director of aluminium steel kitchenware manufacturers Domalco Co. Ltd, says plans are in the pipeline for a new hotel project he has set his sights on.

"After getting all the paperwork out of the way, we hope to be able to start construction early next year," Mr Chauhan said.

He said the project was expected to be billed between $5-6million for a 30-room complex at Sekoula St, Ba.

He said this would include a dining and convention centre, amenities he noted were needed in the town.

"Tourism is the only commodity in Fiji that we can say is ours because it does not need to be assembled or imported.

"Visitors to town need proper accommodation and this hotel could also be a great eco-tourism base for visitors going to Nadarivatu or Navala."
