TO attract more tourists into Lautoka, we must promote sporting groups since we have facilities such as Churchill Park to cater for the demand.

Mr Kumar, who has been with the group for the past 11 years, explained the room numbers continued to increase because of the growing public demand.
“Tanoa Waterfront Hotel currently has 92 rooms which is just enough to cater for the current demand … we have also renovated all rooms and extended the gym to attract sports teams.”
The Lautoka man believed there needed to be more investment on inventory if developments continued to extend in Lautoka. He stated that while Lautoka may not have much tourist attractions the Waterfront mostly banked its services on the three growing segments which are corporate, sports and conference.
He stated the visiting friends and families market was also growing but usually sky rocketed when Lautoka played host to a major public event.
