Jan 09, 2011 03:03:47
Fijiís first ever Water Park is in its second phase of construction following the official opening of the Fun World Hotel in Nadi.
The Water Park is part of a $35million project which will also see the construction of a three-star hotel, a shopping mall, multi-screen cinemas, a state-of-the-art medical centre and several other attractions-many of them firsts for Fiji-spread over a 65-acre plot of land in Nadi.
Auckland-based real estate developers-Shah Group is the brains behind the project and Manager, Shahil Shah says the project was his way of giving back to his homeland.
ďWe have always believed that Fiji is still the way the world should be and we will continue to give to our homeland,Ē Shah said during the opening of the Fun World Hotel.
While the group plans to run the theme park and the three-star hotel on its own, the cinemas, 200-store shopping mall and the ultra-modern medical centre will be leased and operated by professionals with experience in their respective fields.
The 10-acre theme water park will feature a wave pool in which waves of different heights are artificially generated at the deep end of a pool giving the impression of being on a real beach.
Shah added that the project will by far be the largest single one-roof shopping venue in Fiji and at the end of the first stage; he expects to generate about 4000 jobs.
