Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort plans reopening in September
Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, Fiji, located in Savusavu, plans to reopen on September 1 following closure after Tropical Cyclone Winston struck on February 20. The reopening will be after the completion of previously planned renovations and extensive restoration following Cyclone Winston.
Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, Fiji, is one of the most renowned luxury vacation destinations in the South Pacific. The reopening will mark the first time guests will be welcomed back to the resort since the cyclone struck the nation on February 20. Resort general manager, Bart Simpson, said: “The outpouring of compassion and support we have received on both a regional and international level is truly incredible. “We have been working hard to restore the resort and we are extremely excited and proud to announce that we will be back and better than ever.” Cyclone caused immense damage to many structures all over Fiji including Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, located near Savusavu on Vanua Levu. And almost every home of the resort’s 180 staff members. Following the storm, the owners and management team of Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort partnered with charitable organisations and internally raised funds for the affected staff.
In the days preceding the cyclone, the resort provided emergency food and bottled water to all its employees. Throughout the following weeks, the resort helped raise a significant amount of money to further aid the storm victims. The award-winning luxury resort will re-open on September 1. The resort would have exquisitely appointed guestrooms (bures) and suites, three swimming pools, outstanding restaurant, spa, Bula Club for kids, and dive centre.
