Castaway Island, Fiji named Property of the Year

June 20, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Castaway Island, Fiji was named Property of the Year at the annual Outrigger Resorts’ global Po‘okela Awards held recently in Hawaii.

Outrigger Enterprises Group executive chairman, Scott Dalecio, said that in spite of the damage caused by Tropical Cyclone Winston in 2016, in 2017 the resort increased its earnings by almost 60 percent.

He said that damaged bures had been rebuilt on schedule following the cyclone and that the final bure product had received outstanding feedback from guests.

The award was made as part of Outrigger’s Po‘okela Awards that recognize excellence within the group at its resorts in Hawaii, Mauritius, Maldives, Guam, Thailand and Fiji.

Mr. Delacio said that Castaway Island, Fiji continued to perform strongly in 2018 and was consistently rated in the group’s top-three properties.

Resort General Manager Steven Andrews said that the resort’s environmental and social achievements had also contributed to the Property of the Year Award.

“This is testament to the resilience of the team, the way our hosts came together after Cyclone Winston to get the resort back in operation and to the ongoing works post-cyclone and the completion of these works on schedule,” he said.

“The Castaway Island resort family, which is our staff, is humbled by this prestigious recognition by the Outrigger Enterprises Group.

“They are the people who make achievements such as this possible. It’s a very exciting time to be working in this industry and this award helps motivate them to continue to make Castaway Island, Fiji the outstanding holiday resort that it is,” said Mr. Andrews.
