Raffe Hotels and Resorts is pleased to announce the appointment of Lisa Costello as Acting Group Director of Sales and Marketing for the iconic property group. Lisa has been a part of the Raffe
Hotels and Resorts family since 2016 in the role of Group Sales Manager and will now lead the Sales and Marketing Team going forward. Bringing with her 17 years of sales and marketing experience within Fiji, she will play an important role in steering the property group through the current challenges facing the travel and tourism industry.
Lisa is excited to take on the new role and states, “It is a privilege to work for a family owned Fijian company that is committed to sharing the Fijian experience with travellers from all over the world, whilst also dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of the Fijian culture and people.”
The Raffe Hotels and Resorts property portfolio consists of 3 diverse properties that welcome a range of guests from all over the world. Fiji Gateway Hotel celebrated 50 years in operation last year
and has continued to operate throughout the COVID 19 pandemic.
In November 2019 Plantation Island Resort celebrated its 50th anniversary with the completion of a new precinct that included a stunning new dining area complete with a la carte restaurant, bar and nfinity edge pool. The resort increased its inventory with 40 new hotel style rooms situated on the water’s edge. The resort is currently closed due to the COVID situation and is looking forward to welcoming families back to its shores in the near future.
Lomani Island Resort has continued with its redevelopment plans and will proudly present a stunning new product to the adults only market in October 2020.
While the travel and tourism industry endures increasing challenges in the current climate, the property group remains confident in a strong return to tourism for the group and Fiji as a destination.
Raffe Hotels and Resorts would like to thank all its industry partners for their continued support during these difficult times and look forward to working together to welcome travellers when
international travel returns.
