Welcome to Jet Set Town, O-Nadi-Ko !
Nadi is where most visitors hear their first BULA and welcome to Fiji. Nadi boasts itself as the main tourist centre of Fiji. The beautiful sceneries, mixed topography accompanied by the clean tropical sunshine and clear blue seas are just some of the attractive features of Nadi. The colourful marketplace, located only a few minutes’ drive from the airport, features relaxing yaqona stalls, homemade souvenirs and local culture. Apart from the readily available exotic resorts nearby, Nadi is also the gateway to the Mamanuca Group where you will find exquisite island resorts as well as laid back surfer camps and budget accommodation.
Places to visit in Nadi include Sri Siva Subramaniya, largest Hindu temple in the Southern hemisphere, the Sleeping Giant and orchid gardens. Ferries leave Nadi for the Mamanuca Islands. With its large Indo-Fijian population, Nadi is a centre for Hinduism and Islam in Fiji. Nadi International Airport is located 9 kilometers from the town, is the largest airport in Fiji and is served by Fiji Airways (the international airline of Fiji), Air New Zealand, Pacific Blue, Korean Air and some other domestic airlines such as Pacific Link.
Economic development in the district has grown rapidly over the years and todate Nadi is second only to Suva in terms of economic power base of Fiji. The council with its green and friendly policies have been attracting both local and foreign investors into Nadi in the last years. This investment trend is envisaged to remain and should increase rapidly in years to come. Demands for council services in the extended areas of the towns will see Nadi developing into a city very soon.
Special Administrator Robin K. Ali wants Nadi to be the model of satellite city in the South Pacific and welcome any advice and contributions from the ratepayers and the public at large.
He has led the council by setting benchmarks for opportunities and achievements. His deep understanding of the necessity to think strategically derives from his capacity to have a broad perspective of the problems of the town. Furthermore, the town of Nadi is expanding quickly and finds itself in a transition, which has created many expectations among the population, but not an equivalent change in the conduct of the municipal business. Opportunities are always available for future investments and the door is open for future partnerships with the Nadi Town Council on business venture projects.
