15 MARCH 2011: Fiji's most sophisticated address, the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa, will present its inaugural music festival A Weekend of Jazz this May.

Created in association with New Zealand's Hawkes Bay Jazz Club, Sofitel's long weekend of jazz will stretch across four days from Friday the 20th until Monday the 23rd of May. A Weekend of Jazz will include live poolside jazz sessions at the Sofitel and at the resort's Breeze Bar. Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa will also host a three-course Gala Dinner event to celebrate a love of all things 'jazz' on Saturday the 21st, and an afternoon of jazz on Sofitel's Fijian Meke Lawn on Sunday afternoon the 22nd.

To help celebrate A Weekend of Jazz, Sofitel has teamed with Talpacific to create a six-night holiday package for the occasion. Packages are priced from A$1,435 ex Brisbane, from A$1,565 ex Sydney and from A$1,595 ex Melbourne (per person twin share and subject to availability).

The experience includes return economy airfares with Pacific Blue to Nadi, return airport transfers, six-nights accommodation at the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa, breakfast daily, a bottle of sparkling water on arrival and access to the four-day jazz festival including the gala dinner event, plus an escorted day cruise to Tivua Island for a local cultural encounter.

Tivua Island is surrounded by a circle of white sandy beach, popular with nesting turtles and 500 acres of coral gardens. The cruise (aboard the tall ship Ra Marama - a historic Brigantine rig tall ship built for the Governor General of Fiji in 1957) includes guided snorkelling and a glass-bottomed boat experience, use of canoes, a traditional kava ceremony, and tropical buffet lunch, beer, wine and soft drinks whilst on the island.

The package is available for bookings until the 18th of May, and for stays from the 19th until the 25th of May 2011.
