Being in Fiji is all about being embraced by gracious Fijian hospitality, easy smiles and warm hearts and where better that in the exquisite seaside setting reminiscent of a traditional Fijian village at Outrigger’s Fiji Beach Resort’s – the Fijian paradise you are looking for and the tropical beach resort that it appears has everything for everyone, located at the heart of the Fiji’s Coral Coast, only an hour’s drive from Nadi International Airport by private car, taxi, or transfer, with helicopter transfers also available.
With Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort a long standing award winning resort well known to many Australians, traditionally it has had a family focus, but now it also offers adult only facilities resort, including a really good range of very well equipped luxury accommodation including the Superior Resort View and De Luxe Ocean View rooms, the Ocean Breeze one bedroom suite, the Plantation and Ocean Breeze Bures and the Beach Front Bures
Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort is particularly recognised for its cuisine and I can vouch for that, with several restaurants including the award winning fine dining Ivi Restaurant for intimate and formal dining, Vale Ni Kana, Life in the Village, located at the heart of the resort in an impressive bure, with my favourite, The Sundowner Bar and Grill, perched just steps from the beach, for casual lunches, elegant dinner and relaxing sunset cocktails and Baravi Restaurant, located by the main pool a culinary journey through India, Thailand, Singapore, and China for lunches and dinners, with Baravi bar for exotic island cocktails and a flat-screen televisions for sport fans and for gourmet coffees, light snacks and lunch, Takia Café offers a tranquil oasis by the lily ponds and streams that run through the property and Takia on the Go for take-away sandwiches, focaccia, pastries and aromatic coffee.
Kalokalo Bar on its hilltop perch overlooking the resort, with sensational Pacific Ocean views serves afternoon and high tea, cocktails and tapas, and oysters and champagne at sunset, but no children and also for peace and tranquillity the Vahavu Bistro alongside the adults only Vahavu pool serves tapas and drinks.
Also, twice a week Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort organises a very impressive Meke and Lovo, a Fijian dance and feast with Fijian specialties, traditional and songs and meke dances and fire dances, performed by the talented men and women from neighbouring villages and oh, of course, in-room dining is available 24/7 and some rooms and bures also receive the Signature Talai butler service, with sparkling wine canapes and a night cap liqueur delivered.
