Fiji fighting strong with more Accor

Fiji fighting strong with more Accor

Accor has taken to Fiji like a duck to water, building its network with the addition of a brand new, multi-million dollar property.

Opening its grand doors in 2016, the Pullman Nadi Bay Resort & Spa will be brought to you by Gokal Group of Companies, one of Fiji’s favourite home-grown corporations.

The resort will be Gokal Groups’ first upscale hotel development in Fiji and first step into a beautiful future with Accor.

Senior VP of operations for Accor New Zealand & Fiji Garth Simmons said Accor is proud as punch to be working with Gokal on the new development.

“In recent times we have recognised a sweet spot in the upscale market in Fiji, ideal for the Pullman brand which bridges the needs for business and leisure guests,” Simmons said.

“We congratulate Gokal Group on their initiative and vision to invest in this great development, and believe it will contribute to the true potential of this region being realised in coming years via significant employment, tourism and revenue growth.”

Gokal Group’s GM Vikesh Gokal added that they’re excited to match up with Accor on its first upscale tourism project.

“Gokal Group is pleased to be working with Accor, and we look forward to embracing their global network to benefit from the international brand recognition Pullman represents, and the group’s dynamic distribution, digital and loyalty programs that extend across the globe,” Gokal said.

The Pullman Nadi Bay Resort & Spa will be Accor’s fifth address in Fiji, complementing its existing hotel portfolio incorporating the Mercure Nadi, Novotel Nadi, Novotel Suva Lami Bay, and the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa on Denarau Island.

Currently under construction, the new Pullman project helps to establish Fiji’s future of economic growth, and will employ 300 staff once completed and operational.

Located beachfront on Nadi Bay, the resort will offer guests a premier location just two kilometres drive from the Nadi International Airport.

The finished resort is expected to open with 234 rooms and suites, and offer guests an extensive range of facilities including six restaurants and bars, two swimming pools and a day spa. Pullman Nadi Bay Resort & Spa will also feature four meetings rooms, with capacity for up to 400 guests’ theatre style.
