Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort’s unique location near the International Date Line made it the first property to join in Outrigger’s worldwide Founder’s Day celebrations on 29 September. Each Outrigger Resort celebrated the 68th anniversary of when Outrigger Hotels and Resorts founders, Roy and Estelle Kelley, opened their first hotel in Waikiki in 1947.
Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort’s General Manager Peter Hopgood said Roy and Estelle’s favourite food for celebrations was champagne, ice cream and cake and that is was fitting that staff and guests at the resort honoured them in a similar style.
The resort opened in October 2000 and in the 2015 Trip Advisor Awards was named Number oOne family resort in the South Pacific. Today Outrigger Enterprises Group operates 40 properties in Hawaii, Asia-Pacific and the Indian Ocean.
