Marriott Resort and The Westin Resort Introduces ‘Good Travel with Marriott Bonvoy’

Nadi 5 February 2021 – Against the backdrop of the global pandemic, and with travellers increasingly aspiring to make a positive impact on the communities they visit whether locally or abroad, Marriott International, Fiji Resorts introduces Community Engagement and Marine Conservation, as part of Good Travel with Marriott Bonvoy. Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay and The Westin Denarau Island Resort & Spa joins 14 other Marriott International properties across the Asia-Pacific as part of the program’s pilot launch. Good Travel with Marriott Bonvoy is a program offering meaningful travel across the Asia-Pacific, aiming to create opportunities for guests forge first-hand connections with local communities and the environment during their stay, promoting both cultural understanding and positive change.

Nestled between the Heineken House Restaurant and Denarau Island Golf Course lies Denarau’s only farm, an organic 4-hectare oasis of fresh Fijian produce that serves as the heart of our Marriott International, Sheraton and Westin Resorts. Guests are invited to participate in a number of hands-on activities to learn more about organic farming and the benefits for local consumption, carbon footprint and the local economy. Some of these activities are farm tours, vegetable harvesting, and a farm to fork experience. The farm provides a growing platform to minimize our need to import whilst displaying the bounty of Fijian produce to guests, associates and local farmers alike. The projects also aim to provide training for local farmers to adopt the skills of organic farming.

The Marriott International for Mangroves, Rivers and Reefs works to fund projects that will sustain, manage and protect Fiji’s important marine ecosystem in partnership with The Ministry of Fisheries, Fiji. As a part of the experience, guests are invited to part take in scheduled projects such as mangrove and coral planting, giant clam reseeding and to establish a turtle sanctuary at the Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay. Guests are offered an option to donate FJ$5 per room upon check-out to the room bill. The donations will be directed to fund projects available throughout the year.

“One of the growing trends we’re observing is how conscious people are of their personal impact on the environment and the destinations they visit said, Neeraj Chadha, Multi-Property Vice President, Fiji & Samoa – Marriott International. Environmental Protection, Community Engagement and Marine Conservation experiences offered at our Denarau and Momi Bay property provide an excellent opportunity for our guests to connect with the local communities and nature, allowing them to give back while staying with us. We are excited to launch the three main experience pillars as part of Good Travel with Marriott Bonvoy and look forward to bringing truly meaningful travel to our guests at home, or from abroad once international travel resumes. Good Travel with Marriott Bonvoy features 15 meaningful experiences across three distinct pillars environmental protection, community engagement and marine conservation.
