TravelOnline Managing Director and CEO, Glenn Checkley states that Fiji is a fantastic destination and one of his favourite places to holiday with the family.
“It’s really hard to go past Fiji as a family destination. We’ve been multiple times with our three kids when they were younger, and we had an absolute ball. As parents we loved it because it’s safe, the kids spend the whole day outdoors in the water and literally drop into bed exhausted each night."
"We also made sure we had some time together as a couple at dinner by using the nannies and we even have the odd breakfast together before the kids wake up. We always leave Fiji with amazing memories and can’t wait to come back," Mr Checkley said.
