The Fiji Islands is known as a place of happiness, home to people with a natural flair for hospitable experience and friendliness amidst beautiful natural scenery. Operating for ten years now, InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort has strived tirelessly to combine this natural warmth of its team with international InterContinental Hotels Group service standards to create a service culture that truly cares for each and every guest that arrives on the sunny shores of Natadola Bay.
“Each Fijian is nurturing and exudes a friendly, authentic presence that just makes you feel at home. One of the safest countries to escape to for a family vacation, our Resort combines this essence with well thought out facilities and recreational spaces for an enriching and memorable South Pacific holiday experience,” says Andrew Davidson, outgoing Area General Manager South Pacific at the Resort.
“Our team takes the utmost importance to provide the best childcare experience, with special training of our child attendants and nannies by Australian Child Wise expert. The Resort features a dedicated Planet Trekkers childcare facility, child amenities and dining experiences; with Natadola Bay as the perfect backdrop for some sun, sand, surf, snorkelling and more.”
Understanding the needs of discerning younger guests, the InterContinental Hotels Group also has a specially designed nutritional children’s menu and an engaging Planet Trekkers mobile app to excite children before, during and after their trip which is present in all their hotels and resorts world wide.
“This continental level award is in recognition to how our Resort team endeavours to deliver an excellent level of service and make every guest encounter personal and engaging; from our InterContinental Concierge team ensuring that the holiday itinerary is fun and educational and our Executive Chef catering for any special dietary requests,” continues Andrew.
“While the children are entertained, parents are able to enjoy some downtime by themselves; from a tranquil massage at our Spa beachfront cabana, to exploring nearby caves or giving back to the environment with our Coral Gardening programme. There are so many activities for each and every guest to enjoy here at Natadola Bay, enabling our guests to leave Fiji with beautiful memories to cherish for a lifetime; at least until their next return!” said Mr. Davidson.
