CORAL COAST, FIJI – Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort has been named Best Family Resort in Fiji for the second year running in the annual readers’ choice survey conducted by Holidays with Kids magazine.

The five-star resort was voted Number One in the Four Star and Above category while sister property, Castaway Island, Fiji was again voted runner-up in the Best Family Resort – Four Star and Under category.

The awards were based on thousands of reader surveys that ranked properties for their kid-friendly accommodation, activities for all ages and all-around excellence.

Resorts must excel in standard of service and hospitality, children’s activities and facilities, quality of accommodation, value for money and overall experience.

In announcing the award, Holidays with Kids said readers had been impressed by Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort’s authentic Fijian hospitality, stunning coastal vistas and activities.

The resort has a commitment to providing safe, relaxing and entertaining environments 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 nanny 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 those 3-7 years old and the Beach Riggers for 8-12 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 was praised for its white sand beaches and kids club activities for all ages.

The resort is located on a secluded, private island resort with 65 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.
