We stayed at the Outrigger at the beginning of May for a week and really enjoyed our stay there. The resort seems to be a hub for wedding celebrations and families and it seems to cater well for this crowd. However, if you are looking for a quieter, more relaxing area for adults there is also an adults only pool equipped with a swim up bar and an eating area which was the pool we used mainly.
We got a taxi from Nadi airport which took a little over 1 hour and cost about $90FJD and upon arrival the staff really know how to great you with warmth.
BULA BULA BULA!
The staff at this resort really stand out, always smiling and making conversation. In fact the Fijian people in general seem to be one of the nicest people I've come across to date from my travels. They are 5 Star!
Our room was beautiful and clean, with a stunning view of the ocean. They offer kayaks, snorkeling equipment and paddle boards for complimentary use daily which we used often. The reef is pretty good also. Go a little further out (but not beyond the limits) and you tend to see more variety of coral and sea life. We spotted so many different types of fish, bright blue starfish, brittle starfish, an eel tucked away in a hole further out and a banded sea snake... not dangerous unless you attack it :p
The only negative for me was the price of the food and drink which seemed a little steep. After all it is Fiji and the prices should reflect that of the country you are in but instead it was the same if not more expensive than some places in the city centre of Sydney or London. We did spend a couple nights at a different resort where the food and drink prices were much more reasonable. Also the internet is very expensive if you wish to use wi-fi. These are the reasons I gave a rating of 4 instead of 5.
There is a local bus for only 1FJD to the town of Sigatoka which is worth a visit and the hotel does have many different daily activities which are either complimentary or come at a small additional cost. If you wish to book any other excursions, I would recommend the rafting on Upper Navua River and the Jet Ski Safari. Both of them were really good and they will pick you up and drop you back at the hotel afterwards.
Vinaka Outrigger, we enjoyed our stay
