Community Outreach & Communication

Community Outreach & Communication

The hotel continues to embark in community sustainability projects to aid in the development of our society through charitable donations – cash or kind and time to schools, churches and other organizations in need. We also participate in environmental activities such as beautification projects and beach clean ups and habitat protection. (Ongoing)
The hotel communicates these initiatives to our stakeholders through various surveys, through our Sales Department and Executive Offices to prospective guests. Information / logo items are utilized heavily throughout the hotel’s marketing programme. The hotel also has a community outreach bulletin board and website that is accessible by guests and employees alike.
