Families and Fiji go together like strawberries and cream or peanut butter and jelly—so it will likely come as no surprise that one of Fiji’s most iconic resorts took out the top spot within Australasia’s Leading Family Resort category at the 2018 Annual World Travel Awards Asia and Australasia Gala Ceremony.
InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa took the prestigious prize, further cementing its position as one of the continents premium destinations for family-friendly fun. The Internationally-acclaimed global hotel chain is in over 60 countries spanning every corner of the globe, but its Fiji offering is arguably one of its finest.
Situated amongst 35 acres of tropical gardens, InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa is located on the idyllic Natadola Bay on Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu. Thanks to picturesque azure waters, sweeping sands and a protected reef, Natadola Beach sits against a backdrop of rolling hills and has been voted one of the best beaches in the world.
Ensconced in a lush, tropical setting, InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa is a luxury hotel that has been designed with the whole family in mind. The resort’s child-friendly nature doesn’t detract from its air of peaceful serenity, and the unparalleled amenities truly set it apart as a family resort.
When it comes to facilities, they don’t come much better than at the InterContinental. Specially designed recreational spaces allow for personalised service, an air of informal luxury and maximum comfort to make any family holiday truly exceptional.
For parents, there are a plethora of dining options spanning a multitude of cuisines, a fully-equipped resort spa and no end of recreational activities to choose from. A golf course, dive and water sports programs, four swimming pools and a gym promise to keep you thoroughly entertained.
The Kids Club
One of the most popular facilities includes the resort’s signature Planet Trekkers Kids Club and childcare facility. This includes fantastic child amenities, customisable dining experiences, a nanny service and tailored activities depending on the child’s age bracket. Understanding the needs of discerning younger guests, the InterContinental has also developed an engaging Planet Trekkers mobile app to excite children before, during and after their trip—quizzing them on all-things travel.
Andrew Davidson, Area General Manager South Pacific at the InterContinental Fiji said “our Fijian family is well known for our unconditional and welcoming warmth when taking care of families that arrive on our shores. To ensure that we offer the best possible experience, our childcare attendants and nannies are trained by Australian Child Wise experts to provide an exciting and fun – yet very safe environment for younger guests to enjoy.”
He contined, "to achieve this recognition on a continental level is a fantastic honour. This is a testimony to how our team endeavours to deliver seamless service and make every guest encounter truly special; from our Executive Chef personally ensuring that any dietary request is catered for, to our recreations team regaling families with their personal insight into Fiji’s unique culture and history.”
