Hotels in Savusavu have been fully booked over the past few months.
Savusavu Tourism Association president Delia Rothnie-Jones said their members have reported full occupancy.
“Over the past few months has been really good with a lot of hotels full to capacity,” she said.
“So we have had really good months with most accommodation providers reporting very full booking.”
She said the recent opening of the newly upgraded Nakama Hot Springs project would boost tourism activity in the area.
“We are pleased to be part of the hot springs development as it takes an existing attraction and makes it far more attractive with information put up at the site. We hope to bring in more visitors to see this heritage and also develop school visits for students to see information of geothermal provided by Geoff Taylor.”
Mr Taylor is a geologist and businessman who owns the popular Copra Shed.
He worked with stakeholders to complete the hot springs project.
The $75,000 Nakama Hot Springs project was opened by Minister for Local Government Premila Kumar this week.
In a speech delivered at the opening, she said they wanted to maintain an integral part of Savusavu’s history while creating an opportunity for Fijians to sell food cooked in the geothermal spring.
She said the project was the result of collaboration between the Local Government Ministry, Commonwealth Local Government Forum (CLGF) and Savusavu Town Council.
