Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort was taken over by the current management team a decade ago, it was then transformed into a property where travellers can #traveltochangetheworld.

Several strategies were introduced by the new management team to ensure the happiness of both the staff and guests. Overstaffing, for example, takes pressure off the staff while guaranteeing guests are not left unattended or waiting.

Staff are encouraged to engage and interact with guests at every opportunity, resulting in an equally satisfying experience.

Another management strategy is providing guests with the opportunity to visit authentic local villages and participate in their community projects. It’s a unique way to meet locals and get an idea of their real way of life and culture.

 

ROOM TYPE & TOILETRIES

Tip:  The lagoon wing by the pool features slightly bigger balconies.
