Suva Business: Three premier hotels to hold your next business conference

By Shane Hussein Posted 30 Apr 2014

We all know that Fiji is one of the world’s premier destinations to relax, but did you know that it also the perfect destination to hold your next business conference? With world-class seminar facilities, characteristic Fijian friendliness and hospitality and a tropical paradise backdrop; Fiji, and more specifically the capital Suva, is the perfect place to lock down that next big deal or to launch a new product.

"We see Suva as Fiji's business hub and Nadi as the leisure hub,” Fiji Airways CEO, Stefan Pichler told Australian Business Traveller. “Most of the travel generated ex-Suva is not so much leisure, it's more businesses, government and NGOs."

As a result, Fiji Airways recently announced that they will begin flying direct between Sydney and Suva from 2nd May 2014, offering two direct flights each week, on Mondays and Fridays. The route is ideal for Australian business travellers flying between Australia and Fiji and if you are considering booking your next company conference abroad, Suva needs to be on your list for your next corporate meeting.

Here are three Suva hotels that come highly recommended for their conference facilities and the options available for business travellers to Fiji:
