The hotel is a bit pricey, but there are also lower-priced accommodations nearby, ranging from backpacker dorms (Smuggler's Cove is a favorite) to mid-priced hotels (Raffles & Tokatoka are two), all within a $10-15 taxi to the tournament site. Many less expensive restaurants nearby, too. Airfares area cheap now, due to low oil prices.

For more information, contact Calvin Prasad at cprasad@internet.com.fj

Excellent! Some local players will have vehicles so you can have access to more (and cheaper) restaurants, grocery shops, etc.

Only 1 player over 2100 - great opportunity for you to bounce back from the Sri-Lankan tourney and to finish in top 3-5! You can do it!

Haha this is the plan, although the NZ contingent may have something to say about that - especially the one I am sharing a room with!
