BUYERS keen to secure a tropical island resort are in luck, with not one but two Fijian resorts hitting the market.
Industry analysts predict combined the two properties could fetch anywhere between $AUD17 million and $AUD23 million.
The Sonaisali Island Resort and Tadrai Island Resort are both owned by the McGrath family from Australia. Peter and Jan McGrath run them with their son Aaron.
The Sonaisali Island Resort is the older more traditional resort, while Tadrai Island Resort is the newest resort in Fiji, built 18 months ago.
They are being sold individually or together through CBRE Hotels, Colliers International Hotels, and The Professionals West Realty (Fiji) via an expressions of Interest campaign closing on August 1.
CBRE Hotels regional director Rob Cross, said the Sonaisali Island Resort had been owned by the McGrath family for twenty years.
"Having developed and operated the resort for two decades, the owners have decided the time is right to sell the property and pass it on to a new owner who can take advantage of the unprecedented trading conditions at play in Fiji,'' he said.
Dean Humphries, national director of hotels at Colliers International, said there was an unprecedented growth in Fiji's tourism market and as a result he thought interest would be strong.
Both resorts are on large tracts of long-term leasehold land.
Sonaisali Island Resort is on Naisali Island, 300 metres off Fiji's main island of Viti Levu and about 20 minutes from Nadi International Airport.
It has 123 hotel rooms, a poolside restaurant, conferencing and retail facilities. It also has its own dive business, a small marina and a passenger ferry providing access to the mainland.
Tadrai Island Resort is a five-star resort on Mana Island in the Mamanuca Island Group. It is 15 minutes by air from Nadi International Airport or 30 minutes by water taxi from Denarau Marina.
The adults-only resort has beachfront villas, a restaurant, infinity pool and health spa. Each villa has its own private plunge pool.
