From the moment we arrived at the Outrigger on the Lagoon, we had a magical holiday. The staff are there to cater to your every need. I cannot express enough how wonderful the staff are, and at the end of each day your face will be sore from constantly smiling.
We upgraded our accommodation to a plantation Bure, which I would highly recommend. The rooms are lovely, and every evening we had personal staff come and provide canapes and drinks to the room. The staff also made sure our son was catered for and they really made an extra effort to make him feel welcome. Staff would remember his name after one meeting, and always make sure they said hello to him during our stay.
We used the Mei-Mei service (Nanny's) on a few occassions - our son loved the quality time he had with Mei-Mei's and they really are the most beautiful babysitters. They took my son down to the beach and played games, collected hermit crabs and lots of other activities.
I highly recommend the day spa - we had the romantic couples treatment with milk bath. This was really beautiful at sunset, as we sat in the milkbath watching the sunset. I highly recommend an afternoon in the Kalokalo bar (located at the top of the mountain with the day spa), as well as the Ivi Restaurant (no children allowed, but Mei-Mei's will take children for dinner at the main restaurant). At the Ivi, make sure to try the Kakonda, which is prepared and served fresh at your table.
The pool is great, and I highly recommend spending half a day at the Kula Eco Park. It was so wonderful to watch the Fijian school children enjoy the zoo, and the staff are really lovely, too.
Only regrets - at arrival, we arranged for food vouchers for 5 days - breakfast, lunch and dinner. I wish we had of only paid for three, as I would have liked to try some of the restaurants in Sigatoka. Also, there is a lovely place we found within walking distance from the restaurant (unfortunately, we found it on our last night there) - great food and great price, and a happy hour that was much cheaper than the Outrigger!! I highly recommend the short walk along the beach to Le Cafe, it gives you a taste of the real Fiji (and the people are just as lovely!!), please ignore the scary sign at the end of the resort warning you not to go off the resort property, my goodness that's terrible propaganda!
Finally, make sure you spend at least one evening in the Vakavanua Bar. The live entertainment is great. But the highlight is the cheeky bar staff that really do bring the bar to life. We spent one wet afternoon in the bar watching a game of local rugby on TV with the bar staff, it was so great to share that experience, they were so passionate and excited. It was one of the highlights of my trip.
I highly recommend this resort, especially for families. Their attention to detail is exemplary, and they really did make our time there so special. We can't wait to go back again.
