Outrigger Turns 67

Management, staff together and hotel guests gathered to celebrate Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji Resort’s 67th Founders Day Anniversary on Tuesday.
It was on this day back in 1947 that the founders of the Outrigger hotel group, Roy and Estelle Kelley, opened their first hotel at Waikiki Beach in Hawaii and over the past 67 years the group has grown to 44 resorts worldwide.
General manager Peter Hopgood was overwhelmed with the turnout from the staff and guests.
“I am so happy and it feels wonderful that staff and guests alike could celebrate founders of the Outrigger group,” he said.
Games were organised for guests and refreshments including a cocktail party by the pool was provided by the resort management.
Staff also joined in the fun with games and cakes sharing the fun and laughter with their hotel management.
“The celebration was an outstanding success for both staff and guests alike; I think the highlight particularly for the staff and children was the endless supply of cakes and ice cream,” Mr Hopgood said.
Meanwhile the resort also managed to take time off their busy schedule to acknowledge the hardworking Housekeeping staff for their services.
Mr Hopgood said he was very proud of the achievements of the Housekeeping team.
“Housekeeping is one of the toughest jobs in hospitality and we sincerely appreciate your hard work and genuine dedication to the guests,” he said.
The resort will now look forward to hosting a Bilibili boat race with various hotels and stakeholders in celebrations of Fiji Day on October 10.
