Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort named best family resort for 2016
The five-star resort was voted number one in the ‘Four-star and above’ category while another Outrigger property, Castaway Island, Fiji Resort was voted runner-up in the Best Family Resort – ‘Four-star and under’ category.
Outrigger’s iconic Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort was honoured third place in the ‘Best family resort in Hawaii’ 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 nannies programme. 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 three to seven year olds and the Beach Riggers for eight to 12 year olds.
The resort also features a large, family oriented pool and an adults-only pool with swim-up bar and bistro.
Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Outrigger Enterprises Group, Sean Dee, said that these resorts are united by their commitment to providing families with the best holiday experiences imaginable.
“From our Meimei nannies that engage youngsters with Fijian culture and hospitality through games, arts and crafts to our family-fun activities offered in Waikiki – Outrigger seeks to provide an unforgettable vacation experience for guests of all ages.
“As a family-owned company celebrating 69 years of hospitality – it’s especially meaningful to have Outrigger properties named as Top 10 Best Family Resorts.”
