Christmas is a time to celebrate, to give and to share. Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay celebrates this year‘s festive season with a theme of A Fijian Christmas centered around sustainability and undertakes a special project to give back to the schools around them.
The resort kick started their festive season calendar by hosting it’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday 05th December with Chief Guest for the event, Na Tui Nalolo – Ratu Kini Vosailagi, Lomawai Village Choir who entertained guests with beautiful Christmas carols, student and teachers from the three primary schools that took part in their Christmas Tree Ornament Competition and other in-house guests.
In true spirit to serve the communities Marriott Hotels and Resorts operate in, this year, the resort invited year one students of primary schools from their surrounding villages to design and craft ornaments using sustainable materials that can be put up on their Christmas Tree. In return the resort provides school shoe vouchers to year one students of the participating schools.
This year’s project saw students participate from Savusavu Primary School, Namata Primary School and Ratu Nemani Primary School.
Resort General Manager, Silvano mentioned in his speech on the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony:
“This year is even more special as we celebrate a ‘FIJIAN CHRISTMAS AT MOMI BAY’, take on a sustainability approach with our lights around the resort and despite a year full of challenges we undertake a very special resort project, which is close to my wife Katrin, and my heart – Our Christmas Tree Ornament Competition.”
Additionally, decorative lights in and around the lobby area are solar powered while the Nativity scene setup in a traditional ‘Drua’ (double hull canoe) is powered by a rowing bike.
General Manager Silvano Dressino also adds: “the resort staff and management are proud they have remained opened since borders closed in April and have had guests stay at the resort every single day. My team and I would like to say a special Vinaka Vakalevu to all our guests who have supported us and domestic Tourism this year.”
Guests staying at the resort this December are welcome to contribute towards our sustainable efforts and use the rowing machine to power up the lights for the Manger.
The evening program also included Santa‘s arrival on a Jetski in the Lagoon, bearing sweat treats for the children and guests alike.
