Peter Hopgood, Likuliku Lagoon Top Fijian Winners At HM Awards
Peter Hopgood and Likuliku Lagoon Resort were big Fijian winners at the Hotel Management (HM) Awards night in Sydney. The major Ashley Spencer Services to the Industry Award was presented to Peter Hopgood, general manager of Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort at Korotogo. And the much-sought Best Fijian Property Award was won by Rosie Group’s Likuliku Lagoon Resort on Malolo Island in the Mamanucas. Likuliku Lagoon Resort beat Laucala Island, near Taveuni and one of the world’s most exclusive private island resorts. Laucala was highly commended.
The South Pacific General Manager Award was won by Mark Leslie, of Vomo Island Resort, also in the Mamanucas west of Nadi. Highly commended were Christoph G. Ganster, of Laucala Island, and Marcus Niszow, Pacific Resort Hotel Group, Cook Islands. The winners of the 2016 HM Awards for Hotel and Accommodation Excellence were named in front of a record 700 attendees at Sydney Town Hall last Friday.
