A lot of you have asked wanting to the if resorts are ok and open after Cyclone Winston. News from some resorts is still coming in as they assess damage and the work ahead of them. Some resorts since the morning after have been on clean-up getting properties back to normal functionality.
I thought I would provide a list of which resorts are open and re-open dates to assist in planning your travels.
All Resorts in Denarau, Coral Coast and Nadi are fully operational. For the outer island i.e the Yasawas and Mamanuca resorts vary with some resorts fully operational and some resorts temporarily closed to address lost thatching, shrub and land scape damage etc. But majority of these resorts will be open for business by the end of the week.
Full list of Taveuni Resorts with thanks to Jonny in Fiji. See it here.
As always, contact your agent or planner to adjust or assist in your enquiries. Please be patient as they will be inundated with enquiries.
