Rodney Bay Village, SAINT LUCIA (2 October 2015) Coco Palm kicked off celebrations of their 10th anniversary with a formal dinner held at Golden Palm hosted by Chairman Michael Chastanet.
Eighteen team members were honoured in a tribute to their ten plus years of service with the award winning boutique hotel which opened the 100 room boutique hotel in Rodney Bay Village in September 2005.
Managing Director Allen Chastanet said “Coco Palm is one of the few family owned hotels in Saint Lucia and my family has endeavored to treat all team members like family and I am thankful for an administration who has continued to do just that.
To all management and staff, I say thank you for your determination, hard work and tireless dedication to ensuring the commitment to excellence for which Coco Palm has become known locally, regionally and internally.
The many awards and accolades is a direct result of your work, and without you Coco Palm would not be the amazing “home away from home” that it is today. Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank Dr. Christopher Bart for his counsel in forming the vision, mission and values of this hotel.
Chairman Michael Chastanet also honoured the team who he referred to as his family and empowered them to feel a sense of ownership of Coco Palm as ‘their hotel’. General Manager from day one, Jean St Rose who is on speed dial to the Chairman, was honoured for his contribution along with his team for catering to both Chastanet’s rein, managing his team and catering to guests.
“Tonight, we recognise our Team. To have eighteen of our original team still with us is testament to their pride in what they do each and every day which has made us what we are in achieving worldwide recognition from both trade partners including Expedia, TripAdvisor and Virgin Holidays to mention only a few. However, the true testament has been the strong following of returning guests year after year with some coming more than six times within twelve months who are proud holders of a Coco Passport” noted Feolla Chastanet, Director of Sales and Marketing.
The honourees received 10th anniversary pins marking their ten years of service along with 10th Anniversary memorabilia. Celebrations continued with a soiree for key suppliers at KoKo Cabana and a Carnival Sailing party cruise for team members and their family. Special 10th Anniversary offers of up to 45% off are being promoted for stays up to November 30, 2015.
