Pacific Casino in Honiara reopens for business service.

Pacific Casino Hotel in Honiara reopened for business last week - a year after it was razed by fire. The hotel was one of the buildings burnt by looters during the April riots last year.

Hotel spokesperson Rachel Garo said they have reopened their accommodation services as of Thursday last week. Ms Garo said half of the complex was already complete and open to public, the other half is still under construction.

The hotel can accommodate 108 guests within its 60 rooms. Ms Garo said in this new complex there will be 14 deluxe rooms and 46 standard rooms. “We already have guests staying here,” Ms Garo said.

Prior to the riot, Pacific Casino was one of the well-known hotels in Honiara. The hotel’s restaurant and casino are still under construction. One of the construction foreman at the hotel site said that all the construction groups are working very hard, renovating and rebuilding the hotel.

With the rise in seminars and major regional conferences hosted in Honiara, more overseas delegates are coming into the country and the demand for accommodation had also gone up.
