This is our 4th visit to the Outrigger. So as you could guess without reading my review we love this place. Sure we have tried other resorts in Fiji but there we always return here.
We always stay in the same plantation bure which suits our family perfectly; it is in a quiet location but close enough to kids club. There is heaps of room to add a rollaway bed for our 5 year old, whilst the 11 year old sleeps on the foldout sofa bed.
The kids club is great, our 5 year old loved going. He always went in the evening which meant we could have a relaxing dinner then pick him up afterwards. The staff is all so friendly and very good with the children. Our son is usually very shy but they all made him feel very welcome. The Talei butler service is wonderful, great champagne and canapés late afternoon, then a nightcap waiting when we return from dinner. They are very helpful when you required additional towels etc. Our boys always received a soft drink too which went down well with them. The menu for the kid’s meals is varied and our children enjoyed all meals they got. Our youngest did eat dinner with the kids a few times and they have a kids buffet to choose from. We ate in all the restaurants including the occasional nightly buffet. We especially enjoyed the Sundowner restaurant. Our 11 year was not into the kids club mainly due to when we were there this time there were not a lot of children around his age at the resort, mainly younger. But we did manage to sway him into going one afternoon whilst we took ourselves off to the Kalokalo bar which was very relaxing and is a kid free zone. We had tapas and cocktails. Great service, great ‘Caprioska’ cocktail. This place is certainly worth a visit, it is so quiet and peaceful. Wonderful view.
Hubby and I both enjoyed treatments at the Bebo spa which I would highly recommend. I had a lovely facial, just what was required whilst on holiday.
Our 5 year old never got tired of hearing the BULA man’s loud welcome at the main entrance. Great entertainment around the pool for our 11 year old. From pool aerobics, pool volleyball and swimming races etc. He was impressed that Tai from activities remembered him including his name from a previous visit. Our boys enjoyed snorkelling, kayaking and tennis. Drink and food service around the pool is superb, really enjoyed the daily cocktail.
I must say with this visit we feel the service has stepped up a level, not that we ever had an issue with this before as we tend to go with the flow whilst on holiday. The service was quick, not long after we ordered the kid’s meals would arrive then when their plates were cleared they asked whether the boys were ready for their dessert then that would appear promptly. Excellent, well done Outrigger.
At the end of the day if the kids are happy then we tend to relax and enjoy too. So the meals are an important part of this. Drinks were prompt when we ordered.
The breakfast buffet is always great, heaps of choice, great juice bar, smoothies, pastries and fresh fruits along with the full hot buffet.
This place is wonderful that is why we keep returning.
They are nearly finished completing an adults only pool up near the tennis courts which I am sure will be well received.
If there is a negative which there really isn’t, the drive from the airport is a good ninety minutes, but it is worth it! The beach is not great, but it is the coral coast. The pool certainly compensates for this it is very spacious.
This is a great family resort which is exactly what we were after. Would we return, we certainly will!
