InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a management agreement with Quantum Hi-Tech Group to develop the largest hotel in Fiji, Crowne Plaza Fiji Wailoaloa Beach. Opening in 2020, the new 453-room resort will boast tranquil ocean views and feature direct access to the beach. The resort will also feature one of the largest conference centres in Fiji, a fully-equipped 24-hour fitness centre, two swimming pools, and a kid’s club among other exclusive facilities.
Rajit Sukumaran, Chief Development Officer, Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA), IHG, says, “As the most popular travel destination in the South Pacific, the islands of Fiji account for close to 40 per cent of travel to the South Pacific, a figure that continues to grow annually. In 2017 alone, Fiji recorded an increase of 7.8 per cent in the number of international travellers visiting the country. This strong growth potential represents a key opportunity for us to introduce the Crowne Plaza brand to Fiji. As the first resort in Fiji for the brand, Crowne Plaza Fiji Wailoaloa Beach complements IHG’s existing portfolio of brands in the South Pacific, allowing us to better meet the different needs of travellers visiting Fiji.”
