As reported on HM’s website on Wednesday November 20, Starwood is set to brand a resort on Fiji’s Tokoriki Island in April 2014.
When the newsletter first went out, it was reported that Starwood’s Sheraton was re-branding Tokoriki Island Resort.
Within minutes of the story going live, HM understood this was not the case and the property that was being taken over was one also located on Tokoriki Island that was damaged during Cyclone Evan, but not Tokoriki Island Resort.
The story was immediately changed and HM apologises for the confusion.
“Tokoriki Island Resort is a privately owned luxury couples retreat located on Tokoriki Island in the Mamanuca Islands, Fiji and has been in operation for over 18 successful years and continues to enjoy high occupancies”, according to Tokoriki Island Resort’s General Manager, Robert Ring.
“Tokoriki Island Resort’s 34 luxury beachfront, freestanding bures and villas featuring 3.5m x 2.5m plunge pools is known for its romantic relaxed atmosphere and has won numerous awards for romance and excellence.
“The resort has always been a leader in the Fijian tourism industry, becoming the first resort in the Mamanucas to offer freestanding villas and bures, air-conditioning, outdoor showers, king beds, plunge pools, a Teppanyaki restaurant plus 100% solar power across the entire resort soon to be completed.
“With over 120 team members, some with 3 generations across different departments, the resort prides itself on its beauty, professionalism, longevity and most of all the spirit of Tokoriki and its beautiful people.
“Tokoriki Island Resort will continue to evolve and create magic moments for their guests which is testament to the high return rate of guests, one couple having returned 37 times.
“The resorts’ ‘Tokoriki Retreats’ offer three days of unlimited luxury spa massages, romantic oceanfront dining experiences and private beach picnics for the romantics at heart.
“There is only one Tokoriki Island Resort and we will remain to be the only boutique adults’ only luxury resort on Tokoriki Island, Fiji,” Ring said.
