Family Friendly Resort and Destination Wedding in Fiji
If you are looking to get away from it all, then Fiji is the place for you. Friendly locals and an easy going lifestyle make Fiji such a special vacation spot for couples and families. We likedOutrigger on the Lagoon Fiji on the main island of Nadi since it had modern amenities that you would expect from a first class resort in LA or Sydney. The rooms were sleek and well appointed. The staff was very accommodating and they even had personal butlers attending to any special requests. Yes, we had our own butler who pressed our clothes after they were all messed up in the suitcase! We also enjoyed the savories and after dinner drink each night that the hotel delivered.
The Outrigger on the Lagoon is laid out over a ton of beachfront property with large pools, outdoor dining and ocean views. You can stay in a beach bure (luxury version of a beach hut) or in the more traditional modern hotel tower which has great views as well. They have great entertainment with fire dancers and Fijian cultural shows. The restaurant just won best of Fiji and we really enjoyed our lobster, steak and scallops. The chef does a great job infusing local fresh Fijian ingredients with other high-end cuisine.
The Spa at the Outrigger was also voted top Spa in all of Fiji. The staff was super friendly and the Spa sits on the top of a hill which offers breathtaking views as far as you can see. They have a high-tech water massage treatment plus many other creative amenities that cater to the Spa beginner up to the most sophisticated regulars.
Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji is a top notch five star resort where you take a romantic escape and/or bring the kids. They have a solid nanny service and Kids Club to keep the little ones occupied. And if you do want to get off the main island away from it all then checkout their sister property called Castaway Island. It sits on a secluded island and offers plenty of romantic inspiration for a Destination Wedding or Honeymoon.
We took a red eye flight from LAX to Nadi on Air Pacific and would highly recommend that you check them out. They offered great service without the attitude you see sometimes on US carriers from the staff. We also booked a roundtrip to Sydney with a free layover in Fiji on Air Pacific, so it felt like we got a whole other trip for free.
