“It’s incredibly rewarding to see the team deliver such great memories for our guests, work alongside some amazing colleagues and have opportunities to foster business partnerships.
“Together, we have made Radisson Blu Resort Fiji not only a holiday destination but a home away from home for so many.
“The team always looks for ways to go the extra mile for our guests and I believe that this is what makes us unique at a time when being different is critical.”
