BRISBANE, AUSTRALIAOutrigger Fiji Beach Resort,  was voted by travelers to be the number one Fiji resort for families and fourth best hotel in Fiji overall.  Sister property Castaway Island, Fiji was named third for families for Fiji and seventh hotel in Fiji overall.

Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort, Thailand, was voted the fourth best resort for families in Thailand in the 2015 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards.

The awards were announced on Jan. 22 as a result of millions of travelers voting in the annual TripAdvisor Awards which rate properties around the world.

Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort General Manager Peter Hopgood said that the resort’s Meimei nanny service and extensive Kids Club programs combined with purpose-built adult only zones made the resort a haven for families.

“We offer a daily calendar of cultural, educational, sporting and entertainment activities with a focus on Fijian cultural values. This, in conjunction with the natural charm of our hosts, is what families absolutely love,” said Hopgood.

Castaway Island General Manager Steven Andrews believes the formula for families stems from the Fijians’ legendary love of children.

“The staff of the Castaway Kids Club completely engage with children through activities including a coconut hunt, sandcastle making, three-legged races, Fijian dancing, broom making, coconut toffee making, tug of war and in the evenings, a torch lighting ceremony, nature walk and beach bonfire.

“Our teenagers program includes beach volleyball and cricket, dolphin safari, underwater treasure hunt, guided snorkeling, an ironman race, a guided paddle to the Secret Beach and around the island, touch footy, as well as night activities which include the island’s famous frog race,” he said.
