Sitting down at the Whispers Restaurant was Sarah Cordell who came from Melbourne in Australia and was here in Fiji for the first time. Her visit was a holiday and also volunteering work at a Marine conservation organization known as the GVI. Sarah’s visit to Fiji was for 3 months and she really loved it here.
“I like the atmosphere and plus Nadi Bay Resort is so nice and quiet. It is easy for me to get around as it is close to all the amenities around. Since my visit, I have managed to go into Nadi town and even got some hand art (henna) on my hands as well. I’m just waiting for some members of the GVI group as they will be coming to here before we all make our way up to the ‘Moon Reef’. I have been involved in many volunteer works as such and also worked for at an Environmental Conservation Department,” said Sarah.
The GVI is an organization that has a mission to preserve marine biodiversity and to guarantee a long term food security for island communities in Fiji. There are many programs that the GVI is running throughout Fiji and these are mangrove tree planting, ecotourism project, conserving and protecting dolphins at the Moon Reef which is a tropical reef complex located 7.3km off the north-east coast of the main island of Viti Levu in the Fiji Islands.
“Nadi Bay Resort is a peaceful place to be and the food is very delicious. After my volunteer program, I will have a small holiday before going back to Australia. I would recommend this place to all my mates!” said Sarah.
Nadi Bay Resort Hotel was hosts to the McDonald’s Nadi seminar a few months ago. This was a wonderful occasion as staff and family members arrived at the 70- seat theater where the actual program began. They had refreshments before the program started and this was provided by the resort. With delicious finger food prepared by the chef and his staff, all the attendees had a good time.
They had a small presentation of certificates and entertainment after their program was concluded. The night wasn’t over yet as they had dinner awaiting them at the Mango restaurant close to the swimming pool. Delicious pizza and sauces were made by Chef John Petueli. The night went well for the recipients of the certificates and all the staff.
“We chose Nadi Bay Resort Hotel for our seminar because it was close to our restaurant and convenient for all of us. Everything was nicely arranged and very well presented. The dinner was delicious as well. Thank you very much Nadi Bay”, said the team leader.
