Our Story

Welcome to the world of Tiara Enterprises! Meet Bobby Raniga and his brothers, Ravin and Ajay, the creative minds behind our family-owned business. Hailing from the picturesque Fiji, we come from a lineage of pioneer traders, infusing tradition into our journey.

Established in 1982 and based in the heart of Fiji’s tourism hub, Nadi, Tiara Enterprises has been redefining the family business. In 1991, Bobby, with a successful law background, embraced a new path by taking the reins of our enterprise. Beyond our business, Bobby has contributed his leadership skills as a Director at the Fiji Revenue & Customs Authority and the Reserve Bank of Fiji.

Recognizing the significance of a ‘general store’ for families and guests in resorts, Tiara set up shop at The Regent of Fiji and Sheraton Fiji Resort. Picture it – three enchanting stores at these premium hotels on Denarau Island, Nadi, offering a touch of paradise to your retail therapy experience. Join us on this journey of luxury and relaxation!

Our Venture

Embark on a journey with us at SOGO FIJI, where shopping becomes an experience! Our story begins with the success of our stores in resorts and hotels out West. Inspired by this triumph, we decided to bring a piece of paradise to downtown Main St, Nadi, introducing our first flagship store – SOGO FIJI.

Step into a world of vibrant fashion, resort wear, accessories, and unique souvenirs all under one roof. SOGO FIJI quickly became a favorite among both tourists and locals, offering a fresh and modern shopping experience that was unmatched in the market. The excitement didn’t stop there; we expanded our presence to Suva, Sigatoka, and Lautoka, spreading the joy of shopping across Fiji.

Simultaneously, we ventured into the hospitality arena, securing the rights to operate general and boutique stores in major resorts, including the Departure and Transit Lounges at Nadi International Airport.

In February 2006, a vision for success led us to join forces with the Tappoo Group, forming a dynamic partnership. Our retail outlets and Tappoo’s resort-owned shops merged under the umbrella of BULOW INVESTMENTS LIMITED, a Tappoo subsidiary.

This collaboration brought together the formidable buying power of Tappoo, their state-of-the-art POS systems, and back-of-house supervisory and internal audit functions. Combined with the Raniga family’s trading history and community leadership, this synergy resulted in Fiji’s first specialist tourism retailer at premium hotels and resorts.
