Since reopening in December 2021, we have been overwhelmed by the number of Australian travelers coming back to our shores. Though many are our beloved returning guests, we are thrilled to welcome first-time visitors to Fiji and for them to experience our exceptionally warm and friendly hospitality Outrigger Hotels and Resorts are renowned for. Despite a challenging 20 months of border closures, the awards are a firm reminder that we are standout favorites amongst the Tripadvisor community. Vinaka Vakalevu to all who voted for us!”
