10 local nannies have been hired by the Outrigger on the Lagoon ? Fiji to boost its premier Meimei (Nanny) Service. From humble beginnings in 2010 with only 5 nannies, the Meimei service now boasts a growing rank of 33.

The service which offers parents options from 4 day, 8 hour packages is a one on one nanny service which offers care for children from the ages of 6 months to 12 years old.

Meimei Manager Feresi Veisa said the demand for the nanny service has increased over the last 6 months and the recruitment of new nannies is necessary to meet the growing demand. ?We?ve hired great new nannies with experience in child care and I am sure they will fit in well with our current nannies to meet the demand that we are currently facing,? Mrs. Veisa stated.

The nannies are also trained in first aid and emergency responses. This according to Ms. Veisa is a standard skill set at the resort because well trained, first aid qualified nannies are an integral part of the Meimei product. The Meimei nannies have similar ratings to the Australian Blue Card system which is a prevention and monitoring system of people working with children and young people and aims to minimize the risks of harm to children.

Outrigger on the Lagoon ? Fiji General Manager Peter Hopgood said the increase in the demand for the Meimei nannies speaks volumes of the quality service these nannies provide.

?When the management decided 3 years ago to provide a one on one nanny service at the resort we knew that it would offer mum?s and dad?s a little more quiet time alone but we didn?t expect the demand to be this high,? Mr. Hopgood stated.

?Our nannies are well trained and qualified and are just great with the kids. These new nannies are a welcome addition to our Outrigger vuvale,? Mr. Hopgood said. ?With the kids well looked after and even tucked into bed, our mum?s and dad?s can now enjoy our other premier services such as? a spa therapy at the Bebe Spa sanctuary or a romantic dinner at our top fine dining restaurant Ivi,? he added.

Outrigger on the Lagoon ? Fiji was recently recognized as the Best Deluxe Accommodation in Fiji at the 2012 AON Excellence in Tourism awards, as well as the Best Fine Dining Restaurant.

The resort prides itself on delivering all the luxury of a five star property with the unforgettable warmth only found in a traditional Fijian village.
