Outrigger Resorts Launches Exclusive Global Honeymoon Platform

PHUKET, THAILAND – To coincide with the start of ITB Asia in Singapore, Oct. 25, Outrigger Resorts is launching a range of nine honeymoon packages for all of its Pacific, Asian and Indian Ocean beachfront resorts this week.

The packages cover some of the most desirable and iconic honeymoon destinations in the world: Maldives, Mauritius, Hawaii, Fiji, Guam, and Phuket and Koh Samui in Thailand.

“Outrigger has made it easy for couples to plan a dream honeymoon and celebrate in paradise,” said Sean Dee, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Outrigger Enterprises Group, who is attending ITB Asia this week. “Our global honeymoon platform is an extension of the Outrigger Resorts Signature Experiences – inviting guests to ‘Escape Ordinary’ – and in this case, love every minute of the authentic tropical adventure.”

Each Outrigger “Honeymoon Getaway Package” is customized to the host location; standard inclusions typically feature breakfast in bed, romantic flower decorations and a selection of rich chocolates or a chilled bottle of sparkling wine. Newlyweds visiting Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort would enjoy a dreamy sunset cruise with cocktails and canapés or at Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort an extraordinary honeymoon dinner on the beach and a 30-minute couple’s massage.

Six of the Outrigger Resorts in Maldives, Thailand, Fiji and Mauritius are also announcing “Ultimate Honeymoon Packages.” In these, couples enjoy all the features of the “Honeymoon Getaway,” plus additional romantic elements, such as a sundown cruise and Swedish massage at Castaway Island, Fiji; a couple’s spa treatment and VIP Mercedes-Benz airport transfers Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort; a honeymoon seafood dinner on the resort jetty and a couple’s massage in the VIP cabin at the spa for Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort; and a candlelit dinner for two on the beach at Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort.

Newlywed honeymoon couples can also join Outrigger Resorts’ beachfront vow renewal ceremonies at each Outrigger Resort. “Pledging allegiance to each other through a local culture ceremony adds additional emotional depth to the honeymoon experience,” said Dee.

Outrigger Resorts, which is celebrating its 70th Platinum Anniversary this year, has offered free vow renewal ceremonies at select properties for the past 15 years. With approximately 1,000 couples renewing their vows at Outrigger each year, that’s 15,000 couples who have already rekindled their love at Outrigger.

For the “Honeymoon Getaway” and “Ultimate Honeymoon” packages, each Outrigger resort requires a minimum stay between three to five nights, depending on the destination. The travel period for the honeymoon packages at all Outrigger Resorts is through Dec. 31, 2018. Guests must provide proof that their marriage date occurred less than one year prior to arrival.

Full details, terms and conditions are available on the Outrigger honeymoon overview page here on Outrigger.com. A click from the page shows the dynamic pricing of all honeymoon packages across the resorts. Prices vary according to date and can be viewed in each visitor’s preferred currency.

Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort Introduces Royal Cambodian Dining

January 19, 2017

BEL OMBRE, MAURITIUS – In a first for Mauritius, the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort has introduced a Royal Khmer Cuisine menu from Cambodia. Starting 20 January, Khmer dishes will be available at the resort’s Plantation Club colonial-style restaurant every Friday night.

The new menu is the creation of chef Thai Samreth, who was born near world famous Angkor Wat in Cambodia, but grew up in the country’s capital Phnom Penh. He learned his culinary skills at the acclaimed Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, joining in 2000 as a Commis, rising to Junior Sous Chef in 2012.

He then expanded his experience in head chef roles in leading Cambodian resorts and restaurants, adding stints in Dubai and the Maldives before joining Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort in September 2016.

At the Outrigger — an all-villa and suite absolute beachfront property in the south of Mauritius — guests and visitors now have a mouth-watering experience awaiting them. “You will find intriguing textures, stimulating flavours and complex aromas – we use a lot of rice, fish, shellfish and garlic,” says chef Samreth.

In Royal Khmer cuisine, we use small amounts of ingredients. All the art in the cuisine is based in the way you combine the herbs and seasoning,” he says.

The Khmer dining experience typically consists of a soup, salad, a fish course, a meat course, vegetables and rice. Various sauces and condiments are served with the meal to add extra flavour. Guests can mostly control the level of spiciness through the use of the sauces and condiments.

The creations are served family style, with a variety of dishes arriving together at the same time at the table.

The Friday menu will evolve, but will start 20 January with evocative creations such as spicy soft shell crab, steamed marinated duck with Khmer herbs, steamed langoustine in coconut milk and spice, pork medallion with pineapple and sautéed spinach, spicy and sour seafood with turmeric and ginger, and wok-fried beef with crushed pepper and piquant dip, to indicate a few highlights.

I want to help guests try different tastes without fear. Trust me and it will lead to a sensational dining experience fit for the royal court of Cambodia,” says chef Samreth with a smile.

Guests and visitors to the Plantation Club at the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort can enjoy the Royal Khmer Cuisine of chef Samreth every Friday from 7pm. A Blonde local craft beer from the Flying Dodo brewery in Mauritius is included with the hors d’oeuvre selection at the start of the meal. The ten-course set menu is available at MUR 3,200 (US$87, €81, £71) per person, inclusive of taxes.

For further information and bookings please contact the Plantation Club reservation team at the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort. Tel (+230) 623 5000. Or email fnbsec.mauritius@outrigger-mu.com. Visit Outrigger.com.

Jeeten has also introduced a Mauritian Massage (75 mins), which is a full body spa treatment by a local expert done to the vibrations of Mauritian sega music coupled with bamboo techniques.

A new Wellness Personalised Massage is also designed to address each person’s specific needs by using techniques such as deep tissue, Shiatsu, reflexology and stretching.
