ALMOST $30 million will be invested into renovating and refurbishing Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa on Denarau this year.

Resort general manager Vincent Macquet said this would be done over the next 12 months.

"At the Sofitel, we are extremely lucky to have a very supportive board of directors who believe in the product, who believe in the Fijian destination and obviously believe in Sofitel, in upgrading the product and bringing this to the next level," he said.

"After eight weeks in Fiji, for me Fiji is the most authentic experience. What Fiji has and what Fiji should retain is the authenticity of the island and the people.

"Over the next 12 months we will be extensively renovating the hotel, all our food and beverage will have unique concepts, never seen in Fiji to date, so something fresh, something for people to talk about. The rooms are going to be entirely renovated and our lobby as well."

Last week, the resort hosted a get-together for industry partners on Denarau, and Mr Macquet said he was elated to see the positive partnerships with different stakeholders.

"It's great to see that we've got good relationships with multiple partners here and we've always had the spirit of doing transparency in business and we believe in working together in collaboration."
