SIGATOKA, FIJI – The Outrigger® on the Lagoon, Fiji is refreshing its popular vow renewal program for couples seeking to reaffirm their commitment in one of the world’s most exotic and romantic destinations. On Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu along the Coral Coast, wrapped by one of the largest fringing reef systems in the world, this Fiji resort inspires romance throughout its 40 acres of beachfront property with a new adult pool opening in April and a range of accommodations including traditional bures, private bungalows with signature Talai Butler service.
Embracing the design and hospitality of a traditional Fijian village, rooms in this enchanting Fiji resort provide guests with an immersion into indigenous culture by incorporating locally sourced materials and artwork. Bure bungalows feature grass-thatched roofs, hand-painted masi bark cloth lining the ceilings and a private veranda with a hammock. Deluxe ocean view rooms, one-bedroom suites and bures come with a Talai Butler to offer a warm Fijian “Bula” welcome upon arrival, unpack and press clothing and deliver champagne with canapés each afternoon, among other traditional butler services. The new adults-only pool is in a secluded spot among lush palms and vibrant gardens.
“While it might sound surprising, vow renewals are really popular with our honeymoon guests who are still basking in the glow from their recent wedding,” said Peter Hopgood, general manager of Outrigger on the Lagoon, Fiji. “Maybe it’s the warm tropical breezes, exotic setting, and stunning sunsets, or maybe they arrive with romance on their mind…whatever the reason, a vow renewal ceremony turns a Fiji honeymoon into a true celebration.”
Vow Renewal: Recreate Wedding Bliss with a Fijian Twist
As part of the vow renewal package, an on-site wedding coordinator will oversee all aspects of the private ceremony, which includes an officiate, tropical flowers, bouquet and boutonniere, traditional decorations such as ceremonial mats, live music during the ceremony, sparkling wine and a celebration cake. The resort offers four picture-perfect settings for the vow renewal ceremony: the Reef Lawn, a beachside setting with a postcard-like sunset background; the Beach for a barefoot in the sand option; the Garden Lawn full of tropical flowers with the ocean in the background; and the Sunset Lawn, adjacent to the beach offering both garden and ocean views.
The special ceremony is capped with an intimate dinner for two at Ivi, the resort’s gourmet restaurant named for the nearby 100 year-old ivi tree. Menus feature Pacific Continental cuisine prepared with the freshest local ingredients. The package starts at 1,850 FJD (approximately$1045 US), valid through March 31, 2014, and can be added to any resort accommodations.
