Beachfront adventure

Uprising Beach Resort
Friday, December 08, 2017

THE locally owned and managed Uprising Beach Resort presents an impressive selection of authentic, Fijian-themed accommodation. The five-time Fiji Excellence in Tourism Award winner offers 3.5 star beachfront accommodation in the heart of Fiji's adventure capital, Pacific Harbour.

Only 45 minutes drive away from the nation's capital of Suva, 24 private rooms including 12 standard bure and 12 deluxe villas, plus a 20 bed tree- house style shared facility, ensure the choices for affordable accommodation are unlimited at the Uprising Beach Resort. With Uprising's prime beachfront location in Fiji's adventure capital, the resort offers direct mainland access to some of Fiji's most sought after adventure activities. All accommodation at Uprising includes a filling tropical breakfast buffet.

Just in time for the festive season, the popular local getaway recently announced its summer time happy hour from 5pm to 7pm daily for local beers and spirits with cocktails and house wines. With the cost of travelling to hotels becoming more and more expensive locally, the Uprising ensures that guests can still experience affordability with improved services and offers.

Uprising Beach Resort general manager James Pridgeon said the purpose of this new offer was to ensure sustainability of their business.

"40 per cent of our annual business is from the local market," said Mr Pridgeon.

"With hotel costs increasing over the last couple of years, we have noticed a decrease in local guest arrivals and this is our way of ensuring that we are able to maintain this market for the long- term sustainability of our business."

"The local market is very price sensitive so we have to be conscious of this. Feedback has been well received and the impact was instant for us. We are locally owned and managed so this is our way of giving back to our local customers over the festive season"

So check out the Uprising Beach Resort where "its not perfect, its paradise".
