The recent announcement by the Niuean Government to bring forward the border re- opening date for Niue to 27 June has been welcomed by resort management.

Scenic Hotel Group Regional Area Manager responsible for Niue, Brett Inkster, says, "The earlier re-opening of the border is great news. Resort Manager Charmaine Carol and team are definitely ready to welcome back international guests with the warmest of Niuean welcomes.”

Inkster confirms that initially, the resort will open with around half of its capacity offering 32 resort rooms. These will comprise Deluxe rooms which opened in 2017, together with Superior Clifftop and Superior rooms. All hotel facilities will be open to guests, including the restaurant, lobby bar, pool bar, conference centre and two swimming pools. Authentic Niuean culture will continue to be the focus of the resort's entertainment offering for evenings and be integrated into many other elements of the guest experience, such as the very popular traditional feast night.

"Maintenance has continued throughout the pandemic period. Of course, we have also been fortunate to have had the support of local business and functions whilst the borders remained closed to international visitors," says Inkster.

The resort will continue to be a hub for tourists to explore with a complimentary airport shuttle service and concierge facility to book on island experiences. Guests can also make the most of the resort's newest neighbour, Niue Blue, a premier dive and on water operator, a wholly-owned subsidiary of multi-award-winning New Zealand operator, Dive! Tutukaka.
