COVID-19 Update

By 20/09/2021 September 21st, 2021 Blog

A very warm Bula Vinaka to all our past guests, as well as those who are dreaming of a visit in the near future.

Over the past few months, Fiji has worked hard to manage its own Covid-19 outbreak and has done exceptionally well to navigate this challenge.

The situation as we head toward the end of September 2021 is becoming increasingly optimistic.

Fiji has achieved a very high vaccination rate and is now well ahead of many other Pacific countries in getting to the minimum target of 80% vaccinated.

We remain confident in the Fiji Government’s plan to re-open our international borders before the end of 2021!

At Plantation Island Resort, our efforts are now focussed on preparing for our next guests.  We have gardening and landscaping projects underway, as well as a deep cleaning and maintenance program for every room in the Resort.

All our public areas are also getting a freshen up with some painting and maintenance projects now underway.

Our Coral Gardening and Marine Conservation work has made significant progress over the past 18 months, and our General Manager Alex along with his resident Marine Biologists have created some beautifully rejuvenated reef areas to share with you.

With long stretches of white sand beachfront, spacious stand-alone Bures, sparkling pools and lots of fresh air and open spaces, Plantation Island Resort is ready to welcome you back for a safe and relaxing holiday!

We can’t wait to see you soon!

Health & Hygiene upgrades at Plantation Island Resort

All over the world, Hotels & Resorts are re-inventing how we will do business when holidays and travel begin to return to normal.

Central to this is a significant focus how we can better safeguard the health and safety of our guests and staff.

At Plantation Island Resort, we are fully accredited under the Fiji Government’s Care Fiji Commitment.

We have also implemented our Savasava Hygiene Promise that features a range of upgrades and improvements to many aspects of our daily operations.

Check-In will be a quicker process as we move toward developing pre-arrival and self-check-in options to reduce the time needed to fill out paperwork.  Our open-air Arrivals Bure and spacious Reception area make it easy to ensure that physical distancing will always be easy to achieve upon arrival and during your stay.

Housekeeping teams have been provided with enhanced cleaning procedures for the hotel rooms, bures, and guest facilities.  All areas now undergo a “twice cleaned” process that includes a sanitisation stage using the latest technology in Electrostatic Sprayers.

Restaurants have reduced seating to make physical distancing easy to achieve.  Although we will strive to keep things casual and stick to “island time”, we may need to ask you to book a time slot during peak periods.

Buffets will not be quite the same.  Many guests still enjoy the variety and value that a buffet breakfast or dinner can offer.  Where required we will be offering a similar experience.  A buffet-type display offering a range of options will be prepared, and guests can select what they want and be served by staff at each station.

Pools will continue to be monitored by our pool attendants however will be checked twice as often throughout the day.  We are also introducing automated chlorine monitoring and dispensing systems to the pools that don’t already have these installed.

Activities staff will be assisting us in helping you maintain physical distancing.  All organised activities will have limited numbers and wherever possible will be held outdoors.  Our team are currently developing more environmental and wellness-based activities to keep you interested, informed and healthy!
