FINOLHU – JANUARY 2019

MESSAGE FROM MARC READER – RESORT MANAGER

Dear Islanders,

Both a successful & an eventful year has passed and we now enter 2019 showing incredible growth. We would not have achieved this forecast without your support and those contributions of TSMIC, especially the Sales, Marketing, Public Relations and Reservations, but also the finance team where they tirelessly kept us on track and keep us on track into the future.

Additionally, on behalf of Finolhu Strategic Leaders, I would like to take this as an opportunity to extend our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your dedication, focus, continued hard work and recognition which you all show to our guests on a daily basis.

Looking Ahead

We are seeing our occupancy demand, grows by 30% in the year ahead 2019.  This lends us great opportunity to continue showcasing Finolhu to our guests, all of our fun opportunities to enhance their stay.  These convert in sales, sales convert to Service Charge, which is a nice reward for our families.

In fact, our ‘business on the books’ is already meeting 2018 end of year total room revenue and we’re only two months into the year.

We have also been focusing on Group Bookings, whether it’s Weddings or Company bookings and Sales has reported even more enquiries which isn’t yet in our system.

Remember our Resort is only 30 months old and we have made a significant impact on the market under the guidance of TSMIC.  Our goal now is to continue to improve our service delivery, remembering we are Born to Play, thus having fun whilst doing so.

The year ahead will bring its own challenges but I am sure by working together, keeping focused on our priorities and putting our customers & work mates first, we can ride this wonderful wave to benefit all.

These will certainly continue to be my priorities and I am convinced I can count on you to do the same.

Let 2019 signify a new year filled with pages of success and happiness, written by the ink of hard work and intelligence. Have a Happy New Year ahead!

Enjoy & warm regards,

Marc Reader
Resort Manager

Ps.  When I am not serving a customer, I always make sure I am serving someone who is!
