Castaway Island Named Number One Resort In Fiji

Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) February 27, 2015

Idyllic Castaway Island Fiji has triumphed in both the AON Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards and Readers’ Choice Top 10 Awards announced by Holidays with Kids magazine (Australia).

The resort won four awards at the Excellence in Tourism Awards and was named Number One Family Resort in Fiji by Holidays with Kids magazine, Australia.

At the Excellence in Tourism Awards, Castaway Island Fiji won best deluxe accommodation. Its 1808 restaurant received the best fine dining accolade, its second consecutive win.

The island’s Executive Chef Lance Seeto received the award for best back of house performance. Lingo Reece of Castaway Island and Eunice Molia of South Sea Cruises shared the award for the best front of house performance.

Castaway Island Fiji General Manager Steven Andrews said he was both proud and humbled by the recognition.

“The Castaway family of hosts are the secret to our achievement and our continued success. They are the cornerstone of our culture. Their commitment to providing the best quality service and memorable holiday experiences to our guests has been fittingly rewarded,” he said.

Australian born Executive Chef Lance Seeto said winning two awards for culinary excellence vindicated his philosophy that the local produce, culture, history and flavours could match or exceed the best the world has to offer.

With soft white sand replacing polished floorboards, the stars and moon replacing the chandeliers, and cooling tropical winds in place of air conditioning, 1808 is a barefoot, tactile experience that diners can see, feel, hear, smell and taste.

“I am also humbled by my personal award for back of house in recognition of the activities and programs that extend beyond my kitchen that benefit our guests,” he said.

In naming Castaway Island the number one resort in Fiji, Holidays with Kids said the privacy of the island seemed to have enchanted many Holidays with Kids families.

“Guests here are wrapped up by the warmth of the local staff members, supremely comfortable in air-conditioned accommodation (its Family Beach Bure is right upon the sand and sleeps up to 10) and endlessly engaged by water sports, a kids’ club that is intentionally ‘unplugged’, and myriad other island joys,” the magazine said.

Chennai Beach Resort

Want an absolutely astounding combination of the sun, sand and the sea down in the south? Or how about spending some quality time with friends, family and loved ones in a quiet little nook adjacent to the sea, away from the bustling traffic and business of Chennai?

Well, whatever be your requirements, Chennai Beach Resorts presents the perfect opportunity for tourists to unwind, relax and just soak up the sun. Offering great, scenic surroundings, excellent amenities and international-ranked comforts and luxuries, the Chennai beach resorts have been the primary choice of the discerning holiday-maker.

In Chennai, the beach resorts, although ranked nearly in the same tiers as the other five-star hotels, preserve their own exclusivity and distinctive identity. Unlike the centralized city locations, resorts like the Golden Sun and Beach resort, MGM Eastwoods, and the Quality Inn resorts take the tourist away into a secluded holiday world.

Amenity-wise, these resorts are top-notch, offering varied options like extremely good multicuisine restaurants, prompt room services, opulent rooms and even the now-mandatory conference halls and swimming areas. Some resorts also have special family lounges, libraries and playhouses to keep your little ones occupied.

Many Chennai Beach resorts conduct complete sight-seeing tours of their own, and some even have private access to their own parts of the beach. Watch as the wonder of gently undulating water waves, slim palm trees and verdant gardens slowly make your weekend in these beach resorts.

Often, many beach resorts in Chennai host awesome theme nights that celebrate the local cuisines, traditions and culture. Especially popular are the different experimentations with the tangy south-Indian food that remains a permanent favorite with Indians all over the world.

Most Chennai beach resorts also have provisions for services like spas, wellness-centers and yoga centers, message therapies and exercise sessions to help tourists de-stress and unwind.
