Fiji wins 'Hottest Destination' award in 2017

Fiji scooped up a top award at the 29th Annual Virtuoso Travel Week conference, being named the Hottest Destination for 2017, according to International luxury travel network Virtuoso®, the company said.

The award recognises Fiji as the destination with the highest year over year growth within the Virtuoso Network.

Tourism Fiji received the award on August 13th, 2017 at The Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas. The accolade is a true honor, given that only a very small fraction of the network´s 1,700 partners were recognized at Virtuoso Travel Week.

Fiji Airways and Tourism Fiji will continue to work together to offer guests the best South Pacific vacation experience.
