Reviewed 2 July 2006

outrigger was undescribable. never had a holiday as good. the service was awesome. all the staff were so helpful and friendly. theres no way you'd walk to breakfast without at least 3 of them giving us a great big 'BULA!' the rooms and the grounds including the pools and beach are so well looked after and they catered to every need. the restaurants were the best ive ever tasted i was amazed. i would recommend this resort to everyone- families, with older and small children, teens, couples etc. i wouldnt go any where else it will be a place ill never forget

If you just wanna kick back & relax its perfect & yes everything does run on fiji time so dont be [--] off if your drink doesn't arrive within 30 seconds. Great pool etc not much of a beach though but there's plenty of trips. We went to mala mala, the snorkeling was out of this world. Walk down to the beach turn right 100 m there's a cheaper bar & taxis, a trip into town is well worth a visit. The market is amazing lots of bartering, indians left over from the cane cutting days hope you enjoy as much as we did BULA OLA!!!!

My wife and I stayed at the outrgger for a week in May, we found the resort facilites pool and activiteis were great. The food is not cheap but not really all that unreasonable (I challenge anyone to find cheap good quality resort food anywhwere) as are the drinks. The accommodation on the other hand was no where near five star I wouldn't even rate it four star. The beds are just about the most uncomfortable beds I've slept in and woke up with sore back and neck everyday. We also stayed at the Sheraton Denarau Villas for a week and it's certainly worth every extra penny. The facilities and food were all clearly more impressive not to mention the accommodation. All in all we still enjoyed our stay at the Outrigger but I don't think I could return after experiencing Denarau Island.

My husband and I travelled to Fiji from May 20, 2006 through June1, 2006. We stayed at The Outrigger on the Lagoon near Sigatoka for the first three nights of our vacation. When we arrived, we were impressed with the lobby of the hotel. It is wide open, airy, and situated on a hill, so that the veiw from the lobby itself is a breathtaking panorama of the whole hotel grounds. The pool appears to be the best in Nadi, but it was quite a trek from our room. The long walk was made easier, as it was covered by a thatched corridor surrounded by tropical plants, and streams stocked with fish and lilypads. Our room had a patio that looked out to the more pricey bures. The room itself was quite nice, clean, and had a large bathroom with tub & shower. We didnt eat at the hotel very much, as we dicovered another small hotel called Baderra a five minute walk away from the Outrigger. The food was cheap, fantastic, and served with a gourmet presentation. Also note- there is a place called Le Cafe an even closer 2 minute walk away that serves the popular Fiji Bitter Beer for FJ$2.00 per bottle!(The Outrigger charges FJ$6.00) Unfortunately, neither Baderrra, nor Le Cafe had any sucess at making breakfast. Better to stick with the Outrigger which has a very nice buffet. Cab ride into Sigatoka for shopping is only FJ$4.00. In all, we were very happy with the Outrigger, and after seeing the other choices in the area (Shanghi, etc), e were glad we chose the Outrigger for our Fiji experience prior to continuing on to Malolo Island

I stayed at the Outrigger for 5 nights with my 2 teenage children in May . On arrival we found they had mistaken my daughter for my wife and allocated only two beds to the room. They then charged me $27 a night extra for a foldaway bed in cramped conditions. Because the rooms have limited coffee tea making facilities and outside the resort the options are limited, they have a captive market in the dining stakes. As a result the meals and drinks are expensive. $31 for full breakfast, $50 for evening buffet and $8 for orange juice. The prices in the resort store are pretty heady too. We limited ourselves to breakfast and dinner and snacked for lunch.We had an excellent day trip to Malomalo Island for snorkelling @ $85 per person for full day. Resort grounds and facilities are excellent. Abundanance of palm trees and beautiful pool. A last day tour of other resorts in the area backed this up. Beach only suitable for swimming at high tide but still a nice place to escape the crowd around the pool. Being one and a half hours drive from Nadi the Coral Coast can be a bit isolated for day trips based out of Nadi. Fijian hosts at the resort were very friendly and helpfull especially when my son required medical treatment for a stubbed toe on Malomalo Is. Overall impression : Fiji inside the resort is paradise. Outside the resort it approaches third world standards away from the cities. Fijian people are lovely and its a pity they dont receive more than the average $2 per hour from the resort profits.

When you travel to somewhere that you haven't been before you should research it first.
Research the TIME OF YEAR that you take your trip. It makes a BIG difference. You don't get those cheap packages for nothing you know.
Check out the type of beach, what's around outside the resort etc. For example at the Outrigger you're staying on the edge of a Coral Reef - don't expect waves and home like beaches. Research the cost of food etc before you go - if it's a bit above your budget, get out of the resort, walk around and find the local store.
For the Outrigger, the local store is 200 metres from the Resort. Go down to the beach, turn right - walk and keep your eyes open. 2 restaurants right there as well as the local store. Cocktails for FIjian $5. How cheap is that?
500-800 meters further on are other restaurants in smaller hotels. Great food and entertainment too. Or catch a bus/taxi to Sigatoka. As far as friendliness goes, some people will get what they give. We got nothing but friendliness everywhere. Including from other guests - we passed handy information on to the friendly fellow guests that we met, just as it was passed to us when we met people, but of course no-one speaks to the gloomy, glary, whinging guests at all.
You don't like that style of pizza or this type of cocktail, well someone else will. It's all subjective isn't it?
Then consider too, how many other places 5 star or not have each of us stayed in around the world - that provide the person reading the review with a gauge of what the person writing the review is like? Are they like me? Or not.

My wife and I just returned from a week at the outrigger.

Overall the experience was good, however for a "5 STAR" resort, some things we not up to scratch.

Rooms:
Overall Excellent
We had a Bure (our own fiji style hut).Large in size, excellent fitings, very clean.

Pool:
Excellent
suitable for kids as well

Gardens and Surrounds:
Beautiful, Fantastic

Beach:
Poor, a bit of sand.
Not good for swimming.

Food:
Quality Excellent
With 4 resteraunts there is lots of variety.
Price is very high
(approx $30 plus for a main meal)
We had the voucher package, this saved us a heap The portions are big enough so with lunches by the pool you could just share 1 between 2.


Drinks:
Expensive
$6.50 for a local beer
$9.00 for an imported beer
$15.00 cocktail
$7.00 local spirits
$12.00 imported spirits
Ice is delivered to the rooms , and the fridge wil fit a few drinks, so we bought our own spirits from duty free and did it that way.

Activities:
Things going on all day but fairly mundane.

Staff:
Average
Most were friendly, however not the cheer and service i would expect from "5 STAR"

Extras: Most extras were very expensive.
The spa was very expensive.
Over $100.00 per hour for a basic massage.


Gripes:
Service
Could be very very slow.
If you ordered a bucket at all it may take between 5 minutes and 5 hrs.

Price of Extras
Had they been reasonably priced, we would have used them a lot more, the same goes with the drinks.

Comments:
Appeared to be good for kids.
Bad for party animals / the disco type.
