Likuliku Lagoon Resort First To Enter Fiji Tourism Hall Of Fame

February 23, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Ahura Resorts is delighted to announce that its Likuliku Lagoon Resort was inducted into the inaugural Hall of Fame at this year’s ANZ Fiji Tourism Excellence in Tourism Awards at the Denarau Island Convention Centre on February 18.

Fijian-owned Likuliku is home to Fiji’s first and only authentic over-water bures. It has already celebrated six wins in the Luxury Accommodation category of the annual Excellence in Tourism Awards, which recognise the achievements of those who have made exceptional contributions to the Fijian tourism industry. Now the iconic resort has made history and inspired Fiji Tourism’s Board of Trustees to create a new award category, the Tourism Hall of Fame. It will recognise consistent excellence across any category – recipients must have won the same award for at least three consecutive years.

The Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards are judged by local and international business and tourism professionals. More than 500 people from the Fiji travel industry, including major hotels, airlines, tour operators and tourism service providers, were present at this year’s Awards event.

Describing the resort’s extraordinary achievement as ‘wananavu’ (‘wonderful) Matthew Stoeckel, CEO of Tourism Fiji, said:

‘Likuliku Lagoon Resort is one of Fiji’s flagship properties and the announcement of its entry into the Hall of Fame is very well deserved. It comes from consistent excellence in providing a world-class experience for their visitors. It’s through this standard of visitor experience that Fiji can compete with the very best on the world-stage and the Hall of Fame Award recognises the significant contribution that the team at Likuliku Lagoon Resort have made to the tourism industry in Fiji. Huge congratulations to the team at Likuliku.’

Ahura Group General Manager Steve Anstey said the company was honoured that Likuliku would be the first tourism product to be inducted into the Tourism Hall of Fame.

‘This is a remarkable achievement that demonstrates the passion and hard work of the whole Likuliku team; we’re all dedicated to giving guests an exceptional resort experience. Likuliku, with its traditional Fijian architecture, exceptional service, fine cuisine and one-of-a-kind over-water bures, is a unique destination, but it’s the people at Likuliku who truly make the difference. I’d like to thank everyone for helping create an unparalleled product that is authentically Fijian and at the same time world class.’

‘I’d also like to thank our guests, many of whom come back year after year to relax, recharge and experience the unparalleled beauty and consistent luxury of Likuliku,’ said Anstey.

Ahura Fijian owner and Managing Director, Tony Whitton, adds:  ‘This award recognises the hundreds of hardworking family businesses across the country. It shows Fijian companies can build global brands that deliver extraordinary levels of service. We are a Fijian family business from very humble beginnings, but through hard work, innovation and having a remarkable team we have built something extraordinary in Likuliku Lagoon Resort.’
