Fiji, holiday hotspot or destination inspiration?

Fiji, holiday hotspot or destination inspiration?

The short answer – it’s both! But read on to find out why Fiji is a great choice for your next conference, meeting or incentive.

I’ve recently returned from a family holiday to Fiji and I’m sure your first thought is, yes yes, it’s the perfect place to take kids for a holiday and yes, it certainly is. But, it was while I was on my family holiday that I was reminded (having run events in Fiji many years ago) and re-inspired about the great reasons it works on so many levels for business.
The fact I was supposed to be “on holiday” yet there I was looking at the InterContinental Hotel at Natadola Bay with my work hat on, thinking, who wouldn’t feel inspired being here?
Regardless of the reason for holding your event or what venue in Fiji works for you, isn’t having your guests feeling inspired one of the key emotions you would like them to take away from bringing them together? Feeling inspired usually means the creation and implementation of great things!
Let me give you a quick overview on what helps make this destination one to consider for your next event…

1. Flights

With Fiji Airways, Virgin Australia and Jetstar flying to Nadi with excellent schedules and a flying time of only 4 ½ hours, you’re leaving your home port mid-morning and arriving in paradise by early evening, just in time for a welcome function by the beach or pool!

2. Venues

All the major hotel chains are represented in Fiji as well as your more boutique options, so whatever your budget, group size or reason for travel, there is an option for you.

3. Value for money

$1 AUD will currently buy you $1.60 FJD so you can make your event dollars go further on all aspects of your event.

4. Culture

The Fijian people are renowned for their beautiful nature. With the ability to introduce your group to the local schools and communities it’s an opportunity to give back as much as it is for your guests to take a message away by taking part in culturally focused engagement, such as a community project by building, painting and playing with the kids at a local school.

5. Activities

It’s really only a matter of how much time you have. Car rallies, island tours, world class golf courses, jet skis, parasailing and cooking classes, just to name a few are all at your finger tips.

6. Customer Service

I honestly think this comes back to the nature of the Fijian people, but their attention to detail and level of customer engagement has to be mentioned. This leaves you to focus on the purpose of your event, while they help execute the logistics, which can obviously make or break your guest’s experience.
