The resort located in the island of Efate caters to athletes as well as tourists interested in a holiday destination with athletic facilities. The funding for the resort comes from Pacific Sports Development Grants from the Australian Government as well as from entrepreneur athletes, such as Ian Thorpe, Pat Rafter, and Adam Scott who would take advantage of Vanuatu’s tax haven status to save money in undeclared income taxes which can be used to fund the facilities. The workforce of the resort will be predominantly the killing time youth which will gain employment as well as a chance to participate in sports as a form of productively killing time. The initial attractor for development will be a 6,300 sq.m. aquatic facilities and resort reception building.
