Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Unhurried pace attracts Fiji visitors NADI, Fifi It was an island that still could be encompassed by a single glance from only a half mile away, but it was an eyeful of silhouetted palms, thatched huts, and white beaches. It was a place suggesting barefoot informality. It was Fiji. Tai, more recently known as Beachcomber, 10 miles off Lautoka, is typical of a recent trend in this area of the South resort per island. Many feel that the real Fiji lies in these smaller of the 322 islands scattered along the 180th meridian between 15 and 22 degrees south of the equator. Accommodations on Beachcomber are unpretentious. But the food is good and the days are relaxing Thatched huts, called are arranged in both private and dormitory styles. The dining area on the beach is under cover but not enclosed. Here everyone lives on the beach and in the warm clear water. Rainfall averages 30 inches annually, lowest in the Fiji group. The nearby reef is a source of fresh fish and a natural aquarium for snorkelers or those in glass-bottom boats. Rates, which include meals and sports equipment, run from to a day. Most of these smaller islands long have been used for all-day cruises out of Nadi, Lautoka. and Suva. For (17 per person, which included lunch and island facilities, they provided a pleasant break on the long Pacific flight. Now that Fiji has come into By RALPH HUBLEY Christian Science Monitor its own as a destination. rather than chiefly a stopover between Honolulu and Sydney, Australia, steps are being taken to provide more luxurious accommodations and complete resort facilities, Although the hut-type hotels of 50 to 100 rooms are proposed by the Fiji Tourism Master Plan, for the outer islands, some can be quite luxurious. The nearest island to Beachcomer is Elevuka, now called Treasure Island, where a 66-unit luxury resort has just been completed. In contrast to the communal-type living on Beachcomer, each "hut" is completely furnished with modern bath and minikitchen; has its own beach and lagoon view, includes a private lanai: and has room-to-room communications on the island's telephone system, which also operates a 24-hour radio telephone to keep in touch with the rest of the world. Prices run from a day for a single person to a day for the two-bure family rate. Launch service to and from Lautoka costs But it is on the main islands (Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, and Taveuni) that the modern Fiji will be found, and it is here larger resorts are proposed with three categories international, standard, arid budget hotels to provide a wide variety of accommodations. But the treasure of Fiji will always' lie in its Polynesian attitude of unhurried pace and friendly service. Ndrua Ndrua Yasawa Rambi m Tut _B Mali.
