Fiji at the Forefront With and NBC Great Getaways' Latest Broadcast Launch to Air on NBC

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) - and NBC Great Getaways series show what Fiji can do if you let a family of five loose in this fantastical string of resort islands in the far South Pacific. The island nation hosted the family of Dave Mulligan, star of the NBC Great Getaways series, recently to show that, while romance is in the air at such exclusive couples-only hideaways as Tokoriki, Fiji is really a one place fits all destinations. 

Mulligan showcases not only the amazing sunsets to be enjoyed from bay-hugging "bures" but also the kayaking to be done with the tides on the Salt River at the Koro Sun Resort; the couples massages on the beach, horseback riding through the surf, and kit boarding through the waves at Sonaisali; dolphin chasing, starfish gazing, and private-island hopping that can be managed from a variety of Fijian settings all very accessible from American shores.

He also visits schools in the rainforested valleys where children play and learn and get soccer games going with willing travelers, thanks to grants provided by the local Fiji Water Foundation; and goes inside the Fiji Water plant to see just what does go into making those ubiquitous square plastic bottles of clear H2O.
