NADI, FIJI (24 APRIL 2020) – In the midst of a tourism downturn caused by the global coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, Club Wyndham Denarau Island is doing everything it can to support its displaced staff, including providing them with fresh meals and vouchers for groceries.

In late March, Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific made the decision to close Club Wyndham Denarau Island until at least May 31, in order to ensure the safety of its guests and staff. The business also wanted to play its part to encourage people to stay at home, in line with the direction provided by national and international health bodies.

“With no guests currently staying at Club Wyndham Denarau Island, we are unable to provide work to some of the resort’s team,” said General Manager, Kaydee George. “We have a large team of employees and we are a tight-knit group with a great sense of camaraderie. It is in our heart to support one another, especially at a time like this.

“Just this week, we have provided our team members who are not working with $100 food vouchers for Shop N Save and hot meals – a small gesture to show we care. We have a reduced team onsite maintaining the resorts rooms, facilities and grounds and are looking for opportunities to keep others engaged – for example, we brought some additional staff back to help clean debris in the wake of Tropical Cyclone Harold recently.”

Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific serves close to 60,000 owners who are part of Club Wyndham South Pacific, the region’s leading timeshare club featuring 51 resorts including Club Wyndham Denarau Island.

Ideally located just 15 minutes from Nadi Airport, Club Wyndham Denarau Island features a host of facilities including Mamacita Restaurant & Bar, The Beach Shack café and bar, a mobile coffee cart and swim up-pool bars at the lagoon-style swimming pool and adults’ only pool. The resort also boasts a children’s pool, day spa, gym, beach club, games room and 24-hour reception.
