Sofitel Fiji undertakes $200m expansion project

Sofitel Fiji’s $200 million investment in an expansion project which will be completed in three years will create approximately 35o permanent positions on completion.

Officiating at the groundbreaking ceremony of the new project named “vatu talei” which means “The Jewel”, Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka has acknowledged the pivotal role tourism plays in Fiji’s economy and the opportunities Sofitel Fiji would bring for growth, employment, and cultural exchange.

He anticipated the positive impact of the resort on the local community, particularly in terms of job creation and economic growth and emphasised the importance of responsible development, noting that the resort’s construction would respect and contribute to sustainable practices.

Rabuka also acknowledged the role of the resort as a gateway to showcasing Fiji’s warm hospitality, vibrant heritage, and breathtaking landscapes to the world.

The investment is undertaken by the Richmond Limited Board which is a shareholder between Fiji Airways and BSP Life.
