Bula from Fiji…!

Today the students completed three hotel inspections on the Coral Coast; The Warwick Fiji, The Naviti Resort and Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji. These hotels are all popular with the Australian leisure market and it was great for the students to see the resort facilities and the different room types available at each property. From welcome drinks, to shell leis and a warrior escort to reception – the hospitality shown by Management and Staff at each hotel has just been wonderful.


Vinaka to The Warwick Fiji, The Naviti Resort and Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji for hosting todays hotel inspections!
