Fiji Islands' #1 Resort And Spa, Namale Named One Of "Oprah's Favorite Things: 2012" In Two-Hour Special On Own: Oprah Winfrey Network
Oprah Winfrey Surprises Military Spouses with The Ultimate Fiji Island Getaway

For the first time since 2010, “Oprah’s Favorite Things” returned for a two-hour special event on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. Like never before, the show revealed the must-have gifts for this past holiday season to a group of unsuspecting Military Spouse of the Year finalists in Washington D.C. The final surprise of the night came when Oprah Winfrey, working with Tourism Fiji, surprised the spouses with a trip of a lifetime to the beautiful Fiji Islands and Namale, Fiji’s #1 Resort & Spa. The trip included two round trip tickets on Air Pacific, Fiji’s International airline and Pacific Sun, along with a five-night stay at the luxurious all-inclusive Namale Resort & Spa.

A group from The Conservatorium of Music in Fiji were chosen to unveil the final “Oprah’s Favorite Thing: 2012” gift to the unsuspecting group of military spouses. They entered the room singing in cultural attire and entertained the spouses, along with Oprah Winfrey, with a traditional spear dance. Amidst wild cheers and tears of joy, it was revealed that eight of the spouses had never had a honeymoon, and others had not been on a vacation with just their spouse in many years. The television special “Oprah’s Favorite Thing: 2012” re-aired twice in December on OWN.
