CORAL COAST, FIJI – Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort has been named Best Family Resort in Fiji by Out & About with Kids magazine following a tally of the more than 40,000 votes cast by print and digital readers.
The resort also won the ‘Best Hotel or Resort for Babies and Toddlers’ category.
Outrigger’s sister property, Castaway Island, Fiji was a finalist in the Best Family Resort category.
The Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort award reflects its standard of service and hospitality, children’s activities and facilities, quality of accommodation, value for money and overall guest experience.
Out & About with Kids’ publisher Elisa Elwin said the family travel market was an important and growing one, particularly with the trend to multi-generational holidays and post-babymoons.
“Our annual Best of Family Travel Awards provide a valuable opportunity for the market to have its say. Every year we see firm family favorites emerge, but we also gain insight into the shifts and emerging trends in family holidays,” she said.
Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort has a commitment to providing a safe, relaxing and entertaining environment for families with the accent on providing five-star, beachfront accommodation while retaining authentic elements of the traditional Fijian village.
One of the trademarks of the resort is the Meimei nannies program. This affordable service staffed by trained, professional nannies allows parents to enjoy some quiet time together, safe in the knowledge that their children are in caring, capable hands.
It is supported by two Outrigger kids’ clubs, the Little Riggers for 3 to 7-year-olds and the Beach Riggers for 8 to 2-year-olds.
The resort also features a large, family oriented pool and an adults-only pool with swim-up bar and bistro.
Castaway Island, Fiji is famed for its white sand beaches and kids club activities for all ages.
The resort is located on a secluded, private island resort with 66 air-conditioned beachfront and garden bures and four restaurants including the award winning, feet-in-the-sand 1808, and four bars.
Castaway Kids Club offers complimentary access for children three years and over. A supervised children’s dinner is served from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
There is also a program for teenagers that includes a dolphin safari, underwater treasure hunt, snorkeling, a guided paddle around the island and night activities that include the island’s famous frog race.
Activities include water skiing, parasailing, jet skiing, scuba diving, snorkeling excursions and banana boat rides.
Families can enjoy award-winning cuisine, the comfort of traditional thatched bures and world-renowned hospitality with little intrusion from the outside world.
