OUTRIGGER On The Lagoon Fiji has been acknowledged as Fiji's premier tourist resort, being named Best Deluxe Resort in the 16th Annual AON Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards.
Judges also hailed the resort's cuisine, naming Outrigger On The Lagoon's signature restaurant Ivi as Best Fine Dining Restaurant.
The Best Deluxe Resort category is contested by Fiji's four and five—star resorts and is awarded to that property which provides the most exceptional service and highest quality holiday experience for its guests.
The Best Fine Dining Award is made to the restaurant that delivers the most impeccable level of service in presenting innovative cuisine underlined by a commitment to the use of local produce.
Outrigger On The Lagoon general manager Peter Hopgood said the two awards acknowledged the hard work and dedication of the Outrigger team.
"We've got the best team and because of it, we can now rightly claim to have the best resort and the best restaurant," he said.
Mr Hopgood accepted the awards on behalf of the resort at a gala awards ceremony held at the Sofitel Resort and Spa on Friday, February 22.
