“This is a wonderful recognition of all we have to offer in Fiji,” said Minister for Tourism, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
“Condé Nast Traveler readers are seasoned and sophisticated travelers with high expectations, so their very positive opinion of the Fiji experience is a wonderful achievement for the entire industry,” added Sayed-Khaiyum who is also the Attorney-General.
The Condé Nast Traveler’s Awards are determined by surveys completed by the magazine’s readers, who are asked to provide a ranking from 1 to 100 in a number of fields, including scenery, friendliness, activities, lodges and restaurants.
The Minister said that “Fiji is very proud to be considered amongst the world’s best tourist destinations. We look forward to continuing to grow the industry and improve the experience of our visitors. The coming year will bring with it many exciting new changes as Fiji positions itself to launch an innovative and universally appealing new brand in both the traditional and new markets. Our goal is to make Fiji one of the top island destinations, not just in the Pacific, but in the world.”
