3:56 pm on 1 July 2005

A new luxury resort is due to open tomorrow near Samoa's Faleolo International Airport.

With a golf course, spa and three restaurants, the new Aggie Grey's resort is a major commitment for local investors.

Samoa's tourism minister, Joe Keil, says there is some pressure for the hotel to be a financial success.

"Anytime you borrow money from the bank you have to pay it back so it has to be a success. But the government is fully supportive of this development and we will do what we can to make it a success"
