Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, travelers have been stuck at home due to travel restrictions. With the regulations in place, all the sectors of business have also been affected, especially tourism. The tourism industry, which once accounted for over a third of the Fijian GDP, has been one of the most affected sectors by the pandemic. Fijian economy has registered the sharpest economic decline of 19 percent in 2020, equivalent to a loss of more than $2billion. With the tourism industry gradually reopening worldwide, Fiji has made an unusual appeal to billionaires looking for a retreat during the pandemic.
Royal Davui Island Resort has announced an exclusive private island seven days isolation retreat to start tourism, which offers an ultimate island getaway ideal for those seeking romance, rest, and total relaxation. The property has received special permission from the Fijian Government to offer an ‘isolation vacation’ like no other.
