“Bula Vanaka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Just returned from a fabulous 9 nights at Outrigger, simply could not fault the service or staff. Any issues (very minor) were addressed with no fuss and a big Fiji smile. The resort lived up to the high standards of previous visitors.

I would recommend when pool side to get to know the staff, they appreciate your time and if you make an effort they will return your friendship ten fold. I have to mention, Paulo, Dean, Jona, Luke, Eleni, Sulu and Sereli - these people were all fantastic and made our stay very memorable.

Our Talai was Tobby and always timed his nightcap visits to perfection, he is very genuine person and made us very welcome and took a great pride in his job and the Outrigger overall.

Fantastic property in Fiji!! My family and myself have stayed there six times and will continue to go back each year! I work as a travel agent and recommend this property to all of my clients!! The rooms are modern and have great air conditioning. The bathrooms are very cleans and spacious. The beds are very comfortable with fresh sheets each day! Families will adore the child friendly atmosphere and the kids clubs. Amazing choice of restaurants and the best pool area I have seen in the South Pacific!!! I recommend this property to everyone. It's a touch of paradise on the beautiful coral coast.

Greetings and a very big “Bula” from the team at Outrigger on the Lagoon•Fiji.
We thank you for your review!
I was thrilled to read that you have now stayed at Outrigger on the Lagoon•Fiji 6 times and you wouldn’t go anywhere else! We must be doing something right. As you have quite rightly highlighted, we have the best restaurants, best staff, best spa and the best pool of all the resorts in Fiji!
Hopefully we will see you back at our beautiful resort at some time in the not too distant future for your 7th visit?
Vinaka and Warm Regards

Well what a spectacular time we have had at Outrigger on the Lagoon. Everything from the best restaurants to the best kids club and wonderful community programmes we could not fault Peter and his team.

Eparama out talai butler was wonderfully welcoming on our first night taking note (and remembering for our entire 12 night stay) our sons' names and their needs, keeping us up to date and just contributing to our stay. We were shocked after Eparama had helped us settled in and wandered off to take care of other families, we looked up as we unpacked and a team of musicians had arrived to wish us a happy 10th anniversary with a cake and song. To say we had 'arrived' would be an understatement.

Apolosi is mentioned below - and here again, another staff member who went above and beyond to make us (and all his guests) feel at home. He remembered my boys' names - from morning one - and called them by their nicknames even telling us their Fijian translation. Paulo who also looked after us at breakfast (smoothies!!), Roy who looked after my 5 year old and I on our horse rides, Masi who was just about everywhere, uncle Jim who kept the kids interested with stories, Jobe whose voice could be heard around the property when events were happening - it is fair to say that it's even a bit unfair to mention names because the entire team from the activities guys and girls to the front desk, to the chefs and other F&B team members, to the less visible teams like housekeeping and engineering, to Peter's back office team - especially our new friend Lite the HR manager who we met at the cocktail party we were invited to in the first week of our stay - they all just do a wonderful job and need to be commended highly.

I'm a big rugby fan and my son and I love to watch rugby regularly. Fiji is rugby mad and Outrigger sponsors the Nadroga Stallions team. During our stay there was an opportunity to go and watch the boys play in Sigatoka (rugby town). Unfortunately with Fiji being Fiji and weather so unpredictable, the field was unplayable and the match was transferred to Lautoka about an hour and a half away. Una, the resort's PR manager who is clearly known around Fiji and is Nadroga's biggest fan (possibly rugby's biggest fan) decided that she would nevertheless take those still interested to Lautoka for the match! What a wonderful experience which my son raved about. A loss, but exciting rugby nonetheless and friendly,happy and engrossed fans!

A special mention needs to go to the ladies in the Kids Club. My 'Little Riggers' cried when they had to leave. To Tasha, Sera, Maria and all the other ladies in that team, you do an exceptional job. For those who don't know, the kids club at outrigger takes kids from 3 years old (there aren't many other places in Fiji which do this) and, along with the Mei mei (nanny) team basically strives to help the parents have a holiday as well. I love my kids, but allowing them to socialise with other kids and learn new things, collect crabs and shells, sing songs and enjoy every bit of their holiday without having to do what mum and dad want to do really made our holiday.

So if you are on your way to the pacific islands with kids, this place must be number 1 on your list of places to stay. You will not be let down.

Sunny greetings from the Coral Coast!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent holiday at Outrigger on the Lagoon•Fiji. I am absolutely thrilled that we could provide you and your family with “everything you could hope for” in a Fijian holiday!
Thank you for your high praise of our food and beverage outlets – We also think they are wonderful and it is easy to see why our restaurants are rated as the best in Fiji.
We also appreciate your wonderful comments on our staff. As you found out they love engaging with our guests. I will most definitely pass your comments onto Esparma, Apolosi, Paulo, Masi and Uncle Jim. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed our back of house tour – It is important when guests arrive from overseas that we put them at ease as to the hygiene and cleanliness of the resort. We take great pride in showing our guests through our kitchens, our water treatment plant plus our laundry and stores area. I was also pleased that you made it to the rugby – As you found out, Fijians are crazy about rugby!

The Hotel overall is beautiful with picturesque views. The Staff are very warm, welcoming, happy and bubbly people who really do make your holiday more enjoyable. Water is crystal clear, I highly recommend staying in a Beachfront Bure as they were just gorgeous and the views which come with the Bure are just breathtaking! Food taste fabulous and presentation was great!

Room Tip: Beachfront Bure's are just amazing! Pricey but worth it if you enjoy the beautiful ocean views

My partner and I spent 3 nights at this beautiful resort from 25th-28th September. From the time we booked in we were enchanted by our treatment from the staff. Fijian people are such lovely polite, friendly & unassuming people. It's a never ending parade of happy smiles & "bula" greetings that make you feel so welcome. We stayed in an Ocean Breeze Bure which was clean, spacious & very well appointed. The Talai butler service was amazing including champagne & canapés every afternoon between 5 & 6pm, thank you so much Tave you are a such a beautiful person. Having previously read rave reviews about maitre de Apotasi at the Ivy restaurant we were enchanted by his amazing service & attention to detail, such a humble man and very persuasive ! The food I must say was excellent, the highlight being the dessert "In The Tropics" which is crepe suzettes spectacularly prepared at your table ! The cocktails at the Baravi Bar were delicious ! We had an amazing massage at the Bebe Spa the staff were so attentive & professional. Our last nite was spent having cocktails & canapés with Peter & his management team at the spectacular cocktail bar atop Bebe Spa. Our only regret is we were not able to spend more time as this beautiful resort. Do yourself a favor & spend some time here, it leaves the overcrowded Danarou resort area in it's wake !

Room Tip: The Bures are a so well appointed with lots of privacy.

I have recently returned from a 7 night trip to this resort. Firstly let me say thankyou to all the staff who made our first overseas trip with our 2 kids aged 7 & 5 a wonderful experience. Staff were so incredible & nothing was ever too much of a hassel for them. We travelled with a group of 17 people including 6 kids. We stayed in a Deluxe Ocean View Room & loved our room. We were in the main resort building which was a bit of a hike to the pool & restaurants - however we desperatly needed the exercise after all our eating. We also loved hearing the man at the gates yelling Bula Bula Bula everytime someone entered the resort. Very quiet rooms & no noise from the pool so can recommend the rooms in the main building. We also got the talai butler service - highly recommend spending the extra $$ to have this service. Our butler was Zac and he was amazing. Fantastic with the kids & brought my daughter in a b'day card fr her 5th b'day. The kids loved him. We didn't use the kids club or nanny service but saw them in action & kids seemed to be having a ball. Pool is fantastic & water aerobics is a great laugh. Many activities on during the day for guests which our kids all loved. Kayaking & Snorkelling was beautiful & the staff down at the beach were so much fun & activities were well run. Would strongly recommend buying the meal package before you leave. May seem pricey upfront but as we had kids we wanted the ease of all our meals being paid for before we left. So glad we did this as there was no bill at end of trip. We didn't eat outside of the resort & the tours we did we usually half day so we were always there for meals. Also advise to pay for extras as you go like drinks & icecreams rather than charging back to your room as you tend to forget what you are charging. We paid as we went & it was great. Recommend doing a school tour whilst you are there. We visited a local school & we had been told in advance to take some colouring pencils, books etc for the kids if we could. The school was really appreciative of the things we took to them. The spa was beautiful & the view was amazing from up the top. Had a wonderful wonderful trip & cannot praise the staff enough. They were amazing from the minute we got there to check-out & even sang us a farewell song on our last night. Would definately go back to Fiji & would stay at the Outrigger again. Please thank all of your staff for making our trip wonderful & thank them for their always smiling face & positive attitudes. Bula!!!

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building are quiet with good views. Get the Talai butler service
