Carlson Rezidor Signs Park Inn by Radisson Hotel in Suva, Fiji

Carlson Rezidor has signed a management contract with Fund Trust Joint Venture, set up by majority shareholder iTaukei Trust Fund and minority shareholder Methodist Church Holdings Trust, to develop a Park Inn by Radisson hotel in Suva, Fiji's capital city.

The Park Inn by Radisson Fiji Suva is the second Carlson Rezidor hotel in Fiji, following Radisson Blu Resort Fiji Denarau Island, which is also jointly owned by iTaukei Trust Fund, an investment entity established by the Fijian government.

Park Inn by Radisson Fiji Suva, a new build hotel scheduled to open in Q2 2018, will have 130 rooms.

 The hotel will be located within walking distance of the main street, the wharf and the city's main bus terminal, close to shopping malls, offices, banks, the headquarters of religious organizations, the European Union office and many Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs).

 The hotel is served by Nausori International Airport, which is about 17km or a 30-minute drive away.

Park Inn by Radisson Fiji Suva will have an all-day dining restaurant and a lounge. To cater to demand from the MICE segment, the hotel's meetings facilities will include a ballroom and meeting rooms. There will also be a fitness center and parking.

Thorsten Kirschke, president, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said, "Park Inn by Radisson Fiji Suva underscores our renewed commitment to Australasia, which is a key sub-region for Carlson Rezidor in Asia Pacific. To optimize the potential of Australasia as an engine of growth, our dedicated Australasia development team is rolling out plans to introduce new brands to the market."

 In Q1 2015, 380,870 tourists visited the Pacific Island countries, a 7.1% increase compared to the same period last year. Fiji led the pack with the lion's share of 143,447 visitors. Fiji's major tourism source markets include Australia, New Zealand , Japan , Korea, the United States and the United Kingdom.
