Pacific Hotelier Magazine

Dean Sanders, founder and editor of, has brought his "online magazine for hospitality professionals around the Pacific Islands" to my attention. And after surfing through Dean's site, I can attest that it's an excellent source of travel industry information.

Pacific-Hotelier.comRecent stories have dealt with the crackdown on Rarotonga restaurants serving alcoholic drinks with meals before 6 pm on Sunday, the new winemaking cottage industry on Rangiroa atoll in French Polynesia, the singing Carmelite nuns of L'Eau Vive du Pacifique restaurant in Noumea, and the reduction in the work week from 48 to 40 hours at the Mercure Hotel Nadi in Fiji.

Pacific Hotelier also carries feature articles on topics such as menu planning, chef profiles, and tricks of the kitchen trade. There's an informative article on "Going for a job interview," and postings of specific job offers on Norfolk Island and Rarotonga.

Although New Zealand-based Pacific Hotelier is aimed at the personnel and proprietors of resorts, hotels, restaurants, cruise ships, and cafes, it offers an insider's look at a sector every South Pacific visitor will use.
