Coming from Australia, we are told wherever we go how friendly we are. This is nothing on the Fijians, especially those at Outrigger on the Lagoon.
From the minute we pulled up we had smiles on our faces that left us with sore cheeks when we departed 5 days later (in a good way!!!).
We were traveling as a group of 6 (3 couples) and were accommodated close to each other as requested. Our "Deluxe Resort View" rooms were spacious, clean and the decor was attractive. Each room had a small balcony with 2 very comfortable chairs which overlooked the beautiful gardens surrounding the accommodation.
The bed was a little soft for my liking but all other members of our group slept very comfortably.
The dining options were plentiful and all of a very high standard.
The Vale Ni Kana breakfast buffet at $25 (Australian $) has a huge spread of hot food, fresh fruit, cereals and pastries all of which was of a high standard. The men in our group certainly got their moneys worth, however, being a fairly light eater it was hard to justify the cost every morning.
We opted for a light takeaway breakfast at the Takia on the Go most mornings where the $9.90 (Fijian $) pastry and coffee deal was better suited to our budget.
Our only qualm was that all sit down breakfast options finished at 10:30am - being in full relax mode we often missed this deadline and found ourselves waiting hungrily for the lunch menu to begin at 12:00 noon.
For lunch and dinner we sampled Sundowner Bar, Pool side dining, Baravi Restaurant & Ivi Restaurants during our stay - all had good varieties for both vegetarians and carnivores.
Our favorite hangout ended up being the adults pool, both for its proximity to our room, its quiet and relaxed vibe and the swim up bar!
There was always plenty of lounges and attentive, cheerful staff to wait.
In attempt to work of some of the cocktails consumed, we made the most of the leisure activities on offer. The tennis courts, volleyball, swimming pools and driving range all got a workout and if it wasn't for a rainy, windy Sunday, we would have been out kayaking over the coral.
We also participated in a Kava ceremony by the pool which was very informative.
The freedom of only having to carry your room key around (charging meals and drinks to the room) saved us grappling with unfamiliar currency and being stuck with handfuls of coins at the end of the trip.
Amenities aside, for us, the staff made this an unforgettable experience.
Always being greeted with a warm Bula when passing made us smile. Friendly banter with restaurant and activities staff went beyond our expectations and made us feel very welcome.
Whilst having a birthday dinner for one of our group members' birthday at the Ivi, all the restaurant staff presented her with a cake and sang a special happy birthday song in perfect harmony - just amazing!
I cannot recommend the Outrigger on the Lagoon highly enough.
