Shangri-La's Fijian Resort & Spa offers on-of-a-kind meeting options with Launch of Sunglasses at Work

Coral Coast, Fiji, 19 January 2014 – Shangri-La's Fijian Resort and Spa has launched a range of meeting options that incorporates outdoor and community options and a chance to make a difference with community work.

Titled 'Sunglasses at Work - Meet by Design' this offers clients one-of-a-kind meeting options that take clients out of boardrooms and meeting rooms.

"Our resort is well known for being authentically Fijian and being involved in our surrounding community so it made sense to put together a number of options that reflects this,” said Director of Sales and Marketing, Ms Jennifer Grayson.  “This gives our clients the opportunity to immerse themselves in a genuine experience," said Ms Grayson. "Our location on a large private island gives our clients a myriad of options that will allow them to be more creative and to look at outdoor meeting options rather than being stuck indoors in a meeting room as this offering is much more than that," Ms Grayson said.

Some of the more unusual activities on offer include  a 'Touch Tank Discovery' at the award-winning Shangri-La Marine Education Centre, mangrove restoration work, building a fish house to be placed in the marine protected area or a beach cleanup.

For fun loving and fitness enthusiasts one can opt for the Yanuca Island Challenge, Island-style mini olympics or a mangrove kayak tour. Clients may also embrace community work and opt to participate in a community activity at one of the resort’s project ‘Embrace’ schools.

Ms Grayson said that while the idea of incorporating community work was not new to the events offering at Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa, Sunglasses at Work was a more holistic approach incorporating green and sustainable activities that enabled clients to experience Fiji on a much deeper level. “Community has always been at the heart of what we do as a company and it was only logical for us to share this with our clients and give them an opportunity to make a difference where it matters,” Ms Grayson said.

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts remains committed to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally responsible manner whilst balancing the interests of diverse stakeholders. In striving to be a leader in corporate citizenship and sustainable development, a corporate-level CSR Committee drives the company’s initiatives in the strategic areas of stakeholder relations, environment, health and safety, supply chain and employees. These focus areas are unified under the umbrella brand of “Sustainability”, together with  Shangri-La’s core CSR projects “Embrace” and “Sanctuary”.  Hotel-level Embrace programmes focus on Shangri-La’s Caring People Project, which aims to promote the highest level of education and health support in underprivileged communities.  Sanctuary programmes concentrate on Shangri-La’s Care for Nature Project, which promotes the conservation and restoration of biodiversity.  For more information, please visit the group’s CSR section on
