Fan­tas­tic, was how Matt Holmes, Di­rec­tor Devel­op­ment South Pa­cific for Wyn­d­ham Ho­tels and Re­sorts In­cor­po­rated, de­scribed the open­ing of the Ra­mada Suites.

They were opened by Wyn­d­ham Wailoaloa Beach Fiji in Nadi last night. “The prod­uct is amaz­ing for our brand, Ra­mada and we are very ex­cited to be here.”

Mr Holmes said this was the first Ra­mada brand in Fiji.

“Mark and Jan­ice (Hin­ton) have done a fan­tas­tic job.”

He said book­ings were com­ing in strong and the oc­cu­pancy rate presently ex­pe­ri­enced was great.

“It’s re­ally strong and stag­gers me even to see the rate.” “Book­ings are go­ing well and we have guests from all over the world.”

Mark Hin­ton, the prop­erty owner and Di­rec­tor said the ho­tel took three and a half years to build. “It has been a long time in the mak­ing and has been good in a lot of ways where we had time to get things right,” Mr Hin­ton said. “We ac­tu­ally opened mid-June and have been op­er­at­ing since then.” “We have some great re­views from cus­tomers on our rooms and ser­vice so that is fan­tas­tic.”

“We look for­ward to the new year.” Tourism Fiji chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Matthew Stoeckel con­grat­u­lated Mr Hin­ton, Mr Hin­ton’s wife and the team at Ra­mada.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic devel­op­ment and will ac­ti­vate the Wailoaloa precinct.

“Tourism Fiji is very sup­port­ive of the vi­sion and com­mit­ment to de­velop such a fan­tas­tic prod­uct in Fiji.

“We are re­ally op­ti­mistic of the po­ten­tial of the prop­erty and are look­ing for­ward to Wyn­d­ham to put more heads on beds in Fiji,” Mr Stoeckel said.
