February 6, 2013… Denarau Island – The Westin Denarau Island Resort & Spa, located on picturesque Denarau Island and stylishly designed to reflect Fiji’s rich cultural heritage and local style, is pleased to welcome it first guests of 2013 on Wednesday 6 February.
Opening a month ahead of schedule the resort is sparkling with a fresh unique sense of renewal. This achievement is being credited to the amazing effort by management, associates and contractors.
“Hotel manager Ravinder Dhesi and his team have come together under imminence pressure and have delivered beyond expectation with the resort looking immaculate and refreshed,” said Shane Cunning, Managing Director, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Fiji.
The temporary closure has given the resort a chance to enhance its features and now not only looks but feels revitalized. With a brand promise to deliver Westin For a Better You, the Resort aims to continue to provide the highest standards of hospitality and sanctuary one would come to expect from a Westin Hotel.
Concurrent with the reopening of the hotel, The Westin Denarau Resort & Spa will also be launching a brand new restaurant, Steakhouse by Peter Kuruvita. Having opened the award winning Flying Fish in Sydney in 2003, internationally renowned chef and SBS TV presenter, Peter joined the Starwood family in 2008 with the opening of Flying Fish Fiji at Sheraton Fiji Resort.
Shane Cunning said that Westin is delighted to be able to partner with Peter now on this new exciting restaurant venture.
