Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort and Castaway Island Fiji, Resort have taken first place in their respective categories in the Out and About With Kids – Readers’ Choice Awards 2021.

Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort was voted number one for family travel on Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu, ahead of other brands such as Shangri-La, Radisson, InterContinental and Marriott.

Castaway Island Fiji Resort came first in the “other islands” category within Fiji.

 

Award Process
Three thousand Australian readers voted in 44 categories for resorts, hotels and destinations around the world over eight months in 2021.

There was no control or pre-selection.

The results, announced in February 2022, were therefore based on a desire to relive previously successful trips, and for some, a desire to try something new.

For both groups, a family-friendly ‘Bula!’ welcome awaits all guests at the two Outrigger properties in Fiji.

 

Both resorts have previously won multiple awards for family-friendly travel.

To make family holidays memorable, Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort features its acclaimed Meimei nanny service with trained child-care givers.

The property, which recreates elements of an authentic Fijian village, has two children’s clubs: Little Riggers for years 3-7 and Beach Riggers for 8-12.

Kids can enjoy supervised activities such as water polo in a spectacular lagoon pool and assorted Fijian games, all of which are designed to be culturally enriching, educational and fun.

While the kids are being entertained, there’s an adults-only pool zone for mum and dad.

Castaway Island in the Mamanuca Islands of Fiji also has a long track record of satisfying family holiday needs, with features such as the Castaway Kids Club and Castaway Teen Programmes.

 

Snorkelling, beach volleyball, hiking, paddle boarding and viewing corals and marine life from a glass-bottom boat are popular with family guests.

Both resorts feature family-friendly environmental activities that children and parents can join.

These include learning about corals and marine life, joining beach cleaning efforts and learning how to reduce plastic consumption.

These initiatives are part of Outrigger’s ZONE (OZONE) activities and are part of The Outrigger Way of caring for guest, host and place.

Ben Johnson, Outrigger’s Area Director of Sales & Marketing, Fiji, said: “We’re grateful to the readers of Out and About for recognising the warm ‘Bula’ family welcome at Outrigger.”

“More than ever, a wonderful beach getaway among friendly, caring hosts is such a life-affirming experience for mum, dad and the kids.”
