Despite the challenges faced in the past year with the pandemic affecting everything and everyone, Thierry Hardy/ Pascal Arright and their team at A.C.G.M have persevered trough these trying times and are on the threshold of completing this colossal project at the New Inter Continental Warda Resort on Lifou Island
The first of the three properties are scheduled to open in November 2021. The InterContinental Lifou Wadra Bay Resort will be a 50-room luxury hotel on the largest island of the Loyalty Islands. It will include all-day dining, a fitness centre, spa and outdoor pool. The A.C.G.M team has done incredible work on the InterContinental hotel and you can see from the rendering how it is coming to life.
I believe we all are excited to see the finished project. These pictures give a small sneak peak to what is to come. We see excellent attention to detail and design and keeping true to the surroundings the Fiber Reed synthetic thatch roofs look authentic and like they have been part of the surroundings for years.
However, this year came with its own collection of surprises for A.C.G.M. Thierry and his team not only faced the challenges of the covid – 19 pandemic, but a tropical cyclone as well. The Tropical Cyclone Niran was a very powerful tropical cyclone that brought severe impacts to North-eastern Australia and nearly made landfall in New Caledonia in February and March 2021. Even with gale force winds the newly refurbished synthetic thatch roof at another project of A.C.G.M stayed unaffected! This test from mother nature herself just emphasizes the durability and quality we provide with our synthetic thatch products.
Fiber Roofing is very proud to be associated with Theirry Hardy / Pascal Arright and their team at A.C.G.M and we look forward to what the future of this partnership my hold!

We are in the process of completing this 18 000 m² project, this is truly a proud addition to the Fiber Thatch resorts family!
Offering a refined yet luxuriously impression, this contemporary luxury African home on the plains of the Serengeti was designed to be an exclusive aged retreat.
The Swiss native couple, Pascal and Loren Sharapan were looking for something different when they decided to build this magnificent home in the Masai Mara in Kenya. Being influenced by ritual and culture like those of the Maasai tribe, they decided on something traditional that would blend in with the surrounding beauty of the Serengeti.
They built the house using local labour, resources and inspiration, measuring a 1000m², this house is truly something to behold. But they where soon faced with a problem, the roof! How where they going to finish this magnificent structure off with something that will add to the surrounding influences that they aspired to achieve, as well as having something that will be safe from fires and the natural decay from the hot environment surrounding the Serengeti?
They soon found us!
We where able to offer them not only peace of mind with the amazing characteristics our synthetic thatch has to offer but also being able to cater to the more custom look they wanted to achieve. Our synthetic thatch is not susceptible to sun damage and doesn’t fade in colour. It is also fire retarded and will not rot or decay, it is literally maintenance free. A perfect answer for a house in such a remote tropical location. We also created a unique custom colour synthetic thatch for this project, something that looks aged and lived in and that will go well with the rest of the environment.
Our synthetic thatch is so easy to install that after a quick demonstration our satisfied customers where able to use local labour to finish the job. The end result is a flawless home perfectly settled in with the surroundings of the vast Serengeti plains.
Fiber Palm Synthetic Thatch has done it again!
This modern tropical gem is one with the palm trees and surrounding ambiance you would come to expect from a luxury’s destination like Fiji. The credit to this excellent execution comes from the use of the Fiber Palm Synthetic Thatch product. This synthetic thatch product was developed to cater to the needs of tropical destinations as well as to help battle some of the challenges these tropical regions face. Fiber Thatch succeeded in this and House Rosen is a great example of why!
House Rosen is in the Vunabaka Estate on Malolo Island in Fiji, the estate is a residential and hotel development in this private tropical island paradise. This community encompasses 120 acres of hill-top, marina, ocean, and beachfront sites centered around breathtaking views of Fiji.
This world-class home balances so well with the surroundings of its tropical destination but, in the same sense radiates luxury of a 5-star resort. Striving to find the perfect product that matches the natural Tahitian Palm Thatch the house owner found the perfect match after discarding many poor imitation thatch products. Fiber Thatch’s Synthetic Palm Thatch achieves this by its 100% natural look and its superior quality and durability. At House Rosen, looks are not the only factor!
Any beautiful house in this tropical, humid destination will face a range of challenges. Luckily, Fiber Palm is not only aesthetically pleasing but will offer any owner a sound peace of mind. The Fiber Palm Synthetic Thatch product will not rot or decay and is ideal for these humid regions. Fiber Palm is also completely fire-retardant and will withstand winds of over 180 kph, perfect for those tropical storms. The ultimate advantage of this revolutionary product is that it requires no maintenance at all and will last up to 50 years without needing to be replaced.
Fiber Roofing factory was allowed to open on the 1st of May under level 4 lock down, with a special permit. Social distancing in the workplace the new reality, as well as many other regulatory requirements and restrictions on the numbers of employees at the factory. We divided our staff into shifts and started to manufacture. This ensured all the employees could work full work weeks and receive full compensation, but more important we could produce and fulfil all our commitments to client’s orders. Everybody was eager to work, and with such a great attitude, it made us realize that the strength of Fiber Roofing lies in its devoted employees.
With a team like this any challenge can be concurred…
