JEAN-MICHEL COUSTEAU FIJI ISLANDS RESORT OPENS NEW HONEYMOON SUITE AND EXPANDS SPA OFFERINGS

Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort announces the opening of its new, luxurious Honeymoon Point Reef suite. Newlyweds and guests looking for a special romantic retreat can book this
intimate suite and indulge in the resort’s expanded spa menu, award-winning dining and casual luxury. To celebrate, the resort is introducing two romance packages: the Honeymoon & Romance Package is all about rest and relaxation while the Reef & Romance Package is a perfect combination of
romance and outdoor adventure.

Located among secluded gardens, the new, 750 square foot Honeymoon Point
Reef Bure with spa tub is an oasis of private indulgence. The private spa
tub rests on the front balcony with breathtaking ocean views. Spacious and
comfortable, the bure is elevated to take full advantage of the ocean
breezes and views. The suite is done in traditional Fijian décor with rattan
furniture, native timber floors and wooden louvers over floor-to-ceiling
screened windows. A luxurious king bed with custom-made mattress is on the
upper level, which features doors opening onto the deck. The lower area is a
sitting room with two daybeds and mini-bar. The suite is perfect for two,
but can accommodate four adults or two adults and two children (13 and
older).

Adding to the romance of the resort are the new spa menu and private dining
options. Just recently Monika Jalovec, the Spa Director at the resort’s
sister property Post Ranch Inn and Spa (rated the #1 Hotel in North America
and tied for #1 Best in the World by Condé Nast Traveler readers in 2003)
revamped the spa program. The Bobo massage, a traditional Fijian massage
utilizing a blend of tropical nut and coconut oil with percussive techniques
to stimulate circulation and release tension, is one of the new treatments.
Others include the Coconut & Pineapple Paradise, the Living Nature Facial,
the Hair & Scalp Therapy, and the Botanical Fusion Foot Therapy.

Because of the increase in guests’ requests to dine at the end of the pier,
the resort now has two dining bures set on private, secluded areas along the
beach for guests to enjoy an intimate dinner as the sun sets and stars come
out.

The two packages offering romance include all meals as well as non-specialty
and non-alcoholic beverages, round trip ground transfers from Savusavu
airport, all complimentary resort activities such as kayaking, snorkeling,
sailing and much more. Both packages are available through March 31, 2005.

The “Reef and Romance Package”, featuring both relaxation and adventure,
includes seven nights’ in a Point Reef bure, plus any two of the following:
diving (two 1-tank dives per person), massage (two 60-minute massages per
person), a private island escape for two with gourmet picnic, or libations
(US$200.00 credit per bure towards alcoholic or specialty beverages). This
package is US$2,730.00 per person plus 12.5% Fiji tax based on a minimum
seven-night stay with double occupancy. The package in the Point Reef
Honeymoon bure is US$2,925.00 per person plus Fiji tax and also includes a
‘stay eight nights/pay seven’ option on select dates. Additional nights are
available at regular rates.

The more restful “Honeymoon and Romance Package” includes five nights’ in an
Oceanfront bure with a free upgrade to an Oceanfront suite (based on
availability upon arrival), champagne, two 60-minute massages, a private
island escape with gourmet picnic lunch, and a private dinner hosted by
award-winning Chef Vijendra Kumar. The package is US$1,512.00 per person
plus 12.5% Fiji tax based on a five-night minimum. For the Point Reef
Honeymoon Suite, it is US$2,140.00 per person plus Fiji tax.

For couples who desire to combine their wedding and honeymoon, the resort
offers a selection of exceptional wedding celebrations. Please contact the
