“Are there kids charging about everywhere?” asks my mate Angie.
She’s looking for a great place to holiday in Fiji with her 17 year old daughter.
Kids club was WAY off the itinerary, as was screeching, splashing, yelling and all the other stuff that children do (quite rightly, they’re kids.)
“Don’t worry, there’s plenty of adult-friendly areas at the Outrigger on the Coral Coast,” I assure her. “Fear not, missus.”
A good proportion of the Outrigger’s guests are adults, couples and groups of friends. There are five areas of the resort where they can expect peace perfect peace.
As we sipped cocktails at the adults only Kalokalo Bar recently, General Manager Peter Hopgood said:
The child-free areas cater to adults holidaying without kids, but they also enhance the experience of parents whose children are playing in kids club or with our Mei Mei nannies.’
Five Adults-Only Areas at The Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort
These areas are ideal for people aged 18 and over. However, mature teenagers are welcome with their parents. For example, my friend and her daughter spent a lot of time at the Bebe Spa and at the Vahavu pool and bar.
Kalokalo Cocktail Lounge and Tapas Bar
The views are sensational from this hilltop bar (it’s up high beside the Bebe Spa). The atmosphere is relaxed, yet the cocktail and wine list are opulent and expansive.
Ivi is a fine dining restaurant and not suitable for any but the most discerning older teens. It would be wasted on my two.
The multi award-winning chefs create spectacular dishes, and the service is terrific.
Vahavu pool and bistro
Relax by the pool or swim up to the bar in this over-18s area of peace and quiet. I’ll get there one day!

Perched high on the hillside and with amazing views over the coast, the Bebe Spa welcome adults and older teenagers into its haven of tranquility and ease.

Adults-only a la carte breakfast is served at the Sundowner. It certainly provides the best breakfast view in the resort.
Most families eat breakfast at the buffet at Vale Ni Kana restaurant which has a HUMUNGOUS selection.
But after an early morning snorkel one day, I had the best fluffy omelette with cheese, mushroom, ham and sweet pepper on the Sundowner deck. With a coffee, bloody marvellous!
When I visited the Outrigger on a family holiday with all four kids a couple of years ago, I didn’t get to any of the adults only areas…. boo….
The recent press trip was such a joy as we ate at Ivi, enjoyed a super-relaxing two-hour treatment at the Bebe Spa (can I recommend the Fijian Polish?) and had a drink or two up high at Kalokalo.
Please don’t tell the kids!
So there you go. You can enjoy a holiday with no kids at all at the Outrigger Fiji.
And we parents can just drop the kids off with a nanny or at kids club then whizz off for some serious adult calm and cocktails, plus blissfully mature fine dining.
