FOR the third time in four years, Samoa’s Aggie Grey’s Lagoon, Beach Resort and Spa has been voted by Australian guests one of the South Pacific’s top five family resorts.

It was also the only Samoan resort to make the top five, with others in the list being located in Vanuatu, the Cook Islands (two properties) and Tahiti; Fiji had its own separate winners, with ten properties due to its larger size.

Family-travel specialists, Holiday with Kids invited readers of its print and online magazine to vote for their favourite resorts in Asia, Australia, the South Pacific and the USA, and with the assistance of Club Med, Ubid 4 Rooms and Take a Break, reached a database of nearly 500,000 holidaymakers.

Participants registered their votes for the top 10 winners in the larger regions and destinations, and top five in others

Readers who voted Aggie Grey’s Lagoon, Beach Resort and Spa into the top five “Rest of the South Pacific” gave it the thumbs-up for its fun and educational facilities for children, including its Dolphins Kids Club that is open from early morning to late at night with healthy supervised activities, and programs that involve children in learning about and understanding the culture and lifestyle of the Samoan people.

The Dolphins Kids Club was also popular for allowing parents quality-time to themselves to enjoy the resort’s many facilities, knowing their children were in safe hands.

For details about holidaying at Aggie Grey’s Lagoon, Beach Resort and Spa, that is set within 90ha of tropical gardens looking out to the picturesque island of Savaii, see travel agents.
