Nanuku, Auberge Resorts Collection on Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu was recently named recipient Sustainable Tourism Company of the Year at the Travel Awards 2019.

The announcement comes just weeks after the resort was also recognised as the best in Australia and the South Pacific in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.

The Travel Awards Gala, presented by Travel Weekly in association with media partner Seven West Media’s Better Homes and Gardens, saw the travel and tourism industry descend on Alexandria for the prestigious award ceremony.

Now in its second year, the event is designed to celebrate the tourism industry, with wholesalers, destinations, airlines, tourism boards, cruise lines, retailers, and a myriad of other travel-related companies included.

37 categories were judged by more than 50 of Australia’s most experienced travel industry alumni and experts from the marketing sector, including a highly coveted Grand Prix Award to highlight one company making the biggest, most impressive splash in the industry.

"We extend our sincerest congratulations to all the winners and proudly accept our Sustainable Tourism Company of the Year award with heartfelt thanks to Travel Weekly and the entire Judging committee," said Nanuku's general manager Logan Miller.

“Nanuku’s commitment to responsible luxury is an inherent part of our DNA. Through the ‘Planet Auberge’ program, Nanuku is committed to leading the way in initiatives focused on minimising our environmental footprint, improving our surrounding environment and villages - while simultaneously enhancing our luxury guest experience.

“Watch this space! 2020 is going to be Nanuku’s greenest year yet! With new innovations and advancements, sustainability will continue to forge forward, and so will Nanuku.”
