(NATADOLA, FIJI) Wednesday 25th September 2019 – As part of InterContinental Hotels Group’s (IHG) annual global movement, the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa team launched their Fiji initiatives to support IHG’s September Giving for Good month; contributing to key projects that benefit the environment, community and promoting health fitness and wellbeing.
InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa’s 2019 focus is around community and sustainability in the Natadola Bay community. Preserving the pristine environment is vital for present and future generations, which resulted in 120 people in a beach clean-up campaign by the resort team in partnership with the local school.
“There was a lot of rubbish collected along our 2km beachfront and surrounding areas. It saddens us to see that this gift from nature is tarnished by day visitors and we implore everyone to be mindful and clean up after themselves when enjoying time at this beautiful location,” says Jacob Pau’u, Human Resources Manager at the resort.
“It’s been an exciting September for us so far at the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa. We are reconnecting with our natural environment, our local community and creating that quintessential relationship and understanding which is dear to us,” continues Jacob.
All the participation in these planned activities that are ongoing during September will count towards the IHG True Hospitality for Good programme for communities and charitable giving, providing colleagues in hotels and offices with a greater say in how they support important causes around the world. Together, the aim is to help change lives for the better through building skills and education in hospitality, and to support communities when disasters strike.
“There is a lot more that we will be doing as a resort for the Natadola Bay community,” adds Jacob. “This is only the start and we look forward to sharing what we will be contributing as a whole as part of our IHG True Hospitality for Good programme.”
One of two iconic Fijian hotels owned by the Fiji National Provident Fund (FNPF) and managed by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa provides services that go beyond the world-renowned Fijian warmth and hospitality to give guests authentic, enriching experiences and insights into the Fijian culture and way of life.
