CORAL COAST, FIJIOutrigger Fiji Beach Resort has been named #1 Family Resort in the Over Four Stars category and Castaway Island, Fiji #1 Family Resort in the Four Stars and Under category in the annual readers’ choice survey conducted by Holidays with Kids travel magazine.

This is the third consecutive year that Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort has been awarded first place in the Over Four Stars category while sister property, Castaway Island, Fiji was runner-up in the Four Stars and Under category for the past two years.

Outrigger’s Hawaiian properties – Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort and Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort have also been voted as one of the 2018 Top Ten Family Resorts by the Holidays with Kids readers for Hawaii.

The awards were based on thousands of reader surveys that ranked properties for their child-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 the Outrigger brand’s commitment to providing a culturally enriching family-friendly ethos with authentic experiences, welcoming hospitality and stunning coastal vistas.

At Outrigger Fiji, the resort has a commitment to delivering a safe, relaxing and entertaining environment for families with an 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, an affordable service staffed by trained, professional nannies allowing parents to enjoy quiet time together, safe in the knowledge that their children are in caring, capable hands.

It is supported by two Outrigger kid’s clubs – Little Riggers for years 3-7 and Beach Riggers for years 8-12.

The resort also features a large, family-oriented lagoon swimming pool with a separate adults-only pool with swim-up bar and bistro.

Castaway Island, Fiji was praised for its white sand beaches, Coral Kids Club and educational, environmental activities for all ages.

The resort is located on a secluded, private island with 65 air-conditioned beachfront and garden bures, four restaurants including the award winning, feet-in-the-sand Restaurant 1808 and four bars.

Castaway’s Coral Kids Club offers complimentary access for children three years and over. There is also a program for teenagers that includes a dolphin safari, underwater treasure hunt, snorkeling and 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, newly-refurbished thatched bures and world-renowned hospitality with little intrusion from the outside world.
