Developer Chiodo Corporation has unveiled plans for a new eco-luxury hotel project for Sigatoka in Fiji. The 5-star Namuka Bay Resort will comprise 164 rooms and 80 villas, each with a private pool.

Located about halfway between the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa and Shangri-La Yanuca Island, Namuka Bay Resort will be positioned on its namesake, the picturesque Namuka Bay. It will feature multiple resort pools and dedicated facilities for children, teenagers, and adults including spa facilities, a gym and some 10 restaurants and bars.

The project, valued at over $350 million, will feature business centre facilities and several event spaces including a wedding pavilion and bridal suite catered to couples seeking destination weddings and companies looking to facilitate destination off-sites or host business meetings. Individuals interested in medical tourism will also have the opportunity to complete their medical procedures at the resort at world-renowned Dr. Martin Ching’s clinic and recover in an elegant seaside and coastal oasis.

Designed by AAPI Architects and Melbourne-based interior design company, Studiomint Design Group, the luxury hotel is being designed considerably to reflect the cultural heritage of Fiji’s indigenous community, with sustainable principles at the heart of the project.

The Namuka Bay Resort will showcase Tali Kato, an age-old practice of weaving using materials like pandanus leaves and coconut fibers. The hotel’s architectural elements will also incorporate Fijian textile art known as Tapa and an on-site exhibition dedicated to local artistry will also be developed, dedicated to featuring the artwork of local Fijian artists.

Chiodo Corporation recognises the changing landscape of property development acknowledging the environmental requirements faced by the hotel and property industries. Dedicated to developing conscious living spaces that embrace local heritage, sustainable principles and adaptable property integrations, Chiodo Corporation is supportive of immersing and supporting local communities into its projects.

“We’re looking forward to supporting the local community in Fiji and integrating Fijian culture into Namuka Bay Resort. We’re especially looking forward to showcasing local art,” said Paul Chiodo, Director of Chiodo Corporation.

Approved by both the Sigatoka Town Council and the iTaukei Land Trust Board, the construction phase is expected to commence in coming months with Stage 1, followed by the main building contract activities. The projected completion date for the resort is earmarked for 2026.

Chiodo Corporation is currently in the process of carefully considering various hotel operators for the resort and expects to make a decision before the end of 2023.

Chiodo is also the developer behind the proposed luxury, Fairmont Port Douglas resort, announced in mid-2020, and which has stalled after facing roadblocks from local council. Last month, LATTE exclusively revealed that Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has its eyes on two city-based projects in Australia.
