Janice Wong said: “Chocolate art and dessert to me is always about evoking the five senses and pushing the boundaries. It’s about creating an experience where guests can not only see and taste the art but also feel its textures and immerse themselves in its cultural narratives. I am thrilled to partner with Marriott International Fiji Hotels, working with the local teams, learning new cultural techniques and immersing myself in the vibrant culture Fiji has to offer.”
