We want guests to make the most of your travel experiences, especially with our wellness brand, Westin, by getting a full night’s rest so they can take on the day ahead and enjoy our beautiful paradise,” said Yvo Van Dijk, acting hotel manager – Westin Resort, Fiji.

“This World Sleep Day, Westin is encouraging guests to get their full eight hours in the Heavenly Bed so they can rise to the challenge of taking eight hours to experience something new wherever they travel.”

A statement from the resort said the Westin Heavenly Bed was uniquely designed with a plush, pillow-top construction for premium comfort and support.
