Rydges Resort announced for Fiji

EVT is expanding its reach into the Pacific by taking its Rydges brand to Fiji for a new resort that is opening in late 2026.

Rydges Wailoaloa will be developed by owners Hari Punja & Sons Limited, on the beachfront at Wailoaloa Beach, and operated by EVT.

The resort development, to be managed by Rydges, will take two years to complete and feature 258 rooms and suites – including swim-up rooms – plus events and conferencing spaces, recreation facilities, a spa, multiple food and beverage outlets and Fiji’s largest swimming pool.

“This partnership is an exciting development for Rydges and continues EVT Hotels and Resorts’ strategic focus on brand expansion in local and targeted international markets,” says Norman Arundel, EVT’s director of hotels and resorts.

“Fiji is a beautiful country with a rich heritage, holiday climate and picturesque ocean views.

“We look forward to bringing our refreshingly local philosophy and extensive hotel management experience to the Fijian hospitality sector.”

Fiji currently has an accommodation shortage and Rydges Wailoaloa aims to alleviate this situation by joining the 43 Rydges Hotels and Resorts currently operating across Australia and New Zealand.
