PLACE Design Group is pleased to introduce Martin Darveniza as senior consultant in tourism, property development & strategic planning.

Martin’s valuable skills and experience in resort and hotel development complement the multidisciplinary planning, design and environmental services of PLACE and add significant value to clients seeking to develop their investments in national or international tourism or property portfolios.

In 1989 a chance visit to Fiji on the way home from a business trip to Japan was enough to entice Martin away from a successful legal career in property with Mallesons Stephen Jaques in Sydney. In what turned out to be a new career, he found himself in the joint roles of Managing

Director & CEO of Tabua Investments Ltd, the company responsible for the overall development

of Denarau Island Resort. Martin was also the Executive Chairman of Denarau Corporation, the company looking after the integrated resort structure for Denarau.

Over the ensuing 20-year period, Martin oversaw the transformation at Denarau, growing it from a two hotel project to become Fiji’s largest integrated resort incorporating resort hotels, condominiums and apartments with a current

value in excess of A$1 billion. Denarau has eight internationally branded hotels, including Hilton, Sofitel, Westin, Sheraton, Wyndham & Radisson as well as the Golf Terrace Apartments. Three of these hotels were developed by Martin in his role as CEO of the Tabua Investments as well as the Port Denarau Retail & Commercial Centre, Denarau Villa Commercial Centre, the Denarau industrial park and eight residential precincts. Martin also worked on the development of the championship golf course, tennis courts & clubhouse and the Port Denarau Marina. Denarau is now the second largest integrated resort in the Southern Hemisphere.

His exemplary management and communication skills also saw him contribute to the nation of Fiji on a larger scale through his representation on several national committees which worked closely with the Fijian government to advance tourism.

Now with PLACE Design Group, Martin can apply his knowledge and experience to a broader array of planning projects, bringing with him firsthand experience of successfully leading a large multi faceted tourism property development. This will enable him to assist clients in identifying development opportunities, strategic value creation options, project management and consultant coordination.
