Accor has announced it will grow its Fijian hotel network with the addition of a new-build, multi-million-dollar upscale address, the Pullman Nadi Bay Resort & Spa, scheduled to open in 2016. The project is being developed by the Gokal Group of Companies, one of Fiji’s most successful home-grown corporations.
Garth Simmons, Senior Vice President Operations Accor New Zealand & Fiji, said, “Accor is proud to be working in partnership with the Gokal Group of Companies on this exciting new development, and we are confident it will stimulate travel and contribute strongly to the tourism growth in the Nadi Bay region.”
“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.”
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 represents a strategic opportunity to drive the future economic growth of Fiji, and will employ 300 staff once completed and operational.
Located on Nadi Bay, the resort will offer guests a premier location just two kilometres’ drive from 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.
