Lo­cally owned tourism in­dus­try leader Rosie has had more in­ter­na­tional suc­cess, with praise and recog­ni­tion in what many re­gard as the world’s most re­spected and read travel magazine. Rosie’s two Ahura Re­sort divi­sion prop­er­ties on Malolo Is­land in the Ma­manuca group off Nadi have been recog­nised in the Read­ers’s Choice awards of Conde Nast Trav­eller, A state­ment said: “Ahura Re­sorts is de­lighted to an­nounce that their al­ready multi award-win­ning re­sorts - Likuliku La­goon Re­sort and Malolo Is­land Re­sort - have added more ac­co­lades by be­ing named in the Top 10 of this ex­tremely pres­ti­gious list - Likuliku at No. 9 and Malolo at No. 10 sur­rounded by equally amaz­ing com­pany from through­out Aus­tralia, New Zealand and the South Pa­cific.” More than 300,000 trav­ellers took part in the 29th an­nual Read­ers’ Choice Awards sur­vey—a new record—sub­mit­ting mil­lions of rat­ings and over 75,000 com­ments to help create a list of win­ning favourites. Tony Whit­ton, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, of the Nadi-based Rosie Group said: “This is big news for both of our re­sort teams - that we have Fiji Re­sort ex­pe­ri­ences con­tin­u­ally be­ing counted amongst some of the best in the world, hold­ing their own with other fa­mous ho­tel and re­sort brands – some of which who are giants in the in­dus­try.

“We be­lieve we have firmly es­tab­lished and filled a niche in Fiji on all things Fi­jian, from tra­di­tional Fi­jian ar­chi­tec­ture to ser­vice de­liv­ery and with a unique prod­uct of­fer­ing of Fiji’s first and only over-water bu­res. We thank past guests and the travel in­dus­try at large for this ac­knowl­edge­ment.” Conde Nast Trav­eller said the breadth of the top-rated ex­pe­ri­ences was im­pres­sive, from el­e­gant cas­tles in the Ir­ish coun­try­side to tented sa­fari camps trail­ing the Great Mi­gra­tion across the Serengeti. Cho­sen were tiny pri­vate is­lands in the trop­ics, small cul­ture rich cities in Europe, and in­ti­mate river cruises. Most no­tably, it showed a pas­sion for the au­then­tic, the per­son­alised, the un­ex­pected—find­ing all three in both new­com­ers and stal­warts around the world. Ahura gen­eral man­ager Steve An­stey said: “The Conde Naste Read­ers Choice Awards have long been re­garded as a lead­ing, world­wide au­thor­ity as far as travel awards go.

It is gen­er­ally a much sought af­ter place to re­ceive one of these ac­co­lades, so nat­u­rally, we are thrilled to have had both re­sorts in­cluded. “We con­tinue to be hum­bled and amazed to be recog­nised in this way. It is a won­der­ful achieve­ment and it is a tes­ta­ment to the qual­ity of the prod­ucts we have and the de­liv­ery of our prom­ise to our guests. Thank you to our in­cred­i­ble staff and of course, to all our val­ued guests for their con­tin­ued amaz­ing sup­port”. Mr Whit­ton added: “This is big news for both of our re­sort teams - that we have Fiji re­sort ex­pe­ri­ences con­tin­u­ally be­ing counted amongst some of the best in the world, hold­ing their own with other fa­mous ho­tel and re­sort brands – some of which who are giants in the in­dus­try.

“And with a unique prod­uct of­fer­ing of Fiji’s first and only over-water bu­res. We thank past guests and the travel in­dus­try at large for this ac­knowl­edge­ment.”

Also bring­ing recog­ni­tion for Fiji in the awards is the in­ter­na­tion­al­ly­owned lux­ury Lau­cala Is­land Re­sort near Tave­uni. It is rated at num­ber three.
