THE year 2013 proved to be a positive year for Sigatoka's Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji Resort.
Over the past 12 months, the resort recorded a total of 265 weddings — an increase of 25 from 2012.
The staggering figure, says general manager Peter Hopgood, was the result of the hardworking staff and greater support from the tourist industry.
Mr Hopgood said the management could not have asked for a more pleasing result and the current 98 per cent occupancy of both international and local guests checked in at the resort to celebrate the new year was testament to the hard work in 2013.
"We have had an exceptional year and our vuvale are one of the reasons for our success.
"We rightfully boast the friendliest staff in Fiji and we are very proud of our achievements," Mr Hopgood said in a statement.
