Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay, part of Marriott International, has opened up a previously untapped area of Fiji to event planners with over 1,500 square metres of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space on offer.
Situated on Momi Bay on Viti Levu’s south-west coast, 33 kilometres from Nadi International Airport, Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay is the only property on Fiji’s mainland to offer over-water accommodation. The property has a dedicated events and conference centre set back from the main resort.
With floor-to-ceiling glass windows and an abundance of natural light, the resort’s Grand Salon Ballroom can accommodate large events or conferences of up to 400 people theatre style or split into three rooms for smaller groups.
The events and conference centre features 1,100 metres of outdoor pre-function space set around a garden, with a protective awning in case of wet weather conditions; an Island Boardroom that can accommodate up to 55 people theatre style; and a separate porte cochère with space for a red carpet to help create a sense of exclusivity and grandeur. Designed with flexibility in mind, the multipurpose venues feature the latest technology, access to gourmet catering and expert event planning services.
‘Our dedicated meetings and events venues have put this previously unknown area of Fiji on the map for meetings and event planners and the feedback we’ve received from the industry since opening has been overwhelmingly positive,’ says Silvano Dressino, general manager, Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay.
Meetings and event planners can take advantage of the resort’s beachfront location by extending their functions beyond the events and conference centre to one of three outdoor event spaces. North Point, which is located at the far end of the resort, Fish Bar, the resort’s fine dining restaurant, and Vonu Beach, which can be reserved for the ‘ultimate island experience’, sitting more than 500 people.
The resort features 114 Bure Villas, including 22 over-water Bure Villas with decks from which guests can dive directly into the turquoise waters. A further 136 Deluxe Rooms, which can be interconnected, provide flexibility for groups.
