Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa is set to undergo a major refurbishment between October 24 and December 18, 2011 and thanks to forward thinking from management, disruption to guests will be minimal.
Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa General Manager Adam Laker said following a soft renovation of certain public areas at the resort over the past 12 months, focus has now shifted to guest rooms.
“We will update half of our room inventory from mid October,” Laker said. “During this time we will change the look and feel of our guest rooms, including ten suites.”
Laker said the integrity of the resort experience for current guests is a priority over the renovation period.
“We don’t want our current guests to be inconvenienced, so at no time will they ever see any work in progress, as we will isolate each block being worked on one at a time,” he said.
“Unlike a city hotel where there is noise floor to floor, our resort is only three floors high and expansive, so we have the luxury of being able to close off entire blocks with minimal disruption. There will be no jack hammering, pulling down of walls or any other excessive noise.”
Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa’s new look involves a luxury upgrade of all furniture, carpet floorings, paint, wallpaper and glass shower screens.
As part of the facelift, Sofitel will also introduce a new Luxury Room category available from April 2012, positioned above the resort’s Superior Room type yet below its suites.
These new Luxury Rooms will receive personal Bose iPod and iPhone docking stations and an updated version of Sofitel’s famous Mybed.
In collaboration with leading hotel interior design consultants, the Carmody Group, Adam Laker and the Sofitel team have designed a vibrant yet refined room concept seemingly inspired by the muted yellow and leather colours made famous by iconic French fashion house, Louis Vuitton.
