CORAL COAST, FIJI – Ten years ago, seven therapists gathered in the reception area of Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort’s newly opened Bebe Spa and welcomed their first guests.
Today, a team of 24 therapists delivers more than 900 treatments every month with Bebe Spa acknowledged as one of the leading spas in the South Pacific.
Spa Manager Praveena Dewan said the spa’s ongoing success was a testament to the energy and dedication of the Bebe team.
“This success has also been mirrored in the raft of awards with which we have been honored,” she said.
These include being named the Winner for Excellence in the TripAdvisor annual survey of spas in the Australasia Pacific region in 2015 and 2016.
Bebe Spa was also a finalist for Fiji Experience at the Tourism Fiji AON Awards in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and winner of the Australasian Spa Association Best Destination Spa (Resort) in 2011 and 2013.
