The luxurious, adults only, Seabreeze Resort, Samoa proved the ultimate winner at the Inaugural Samoa Tourism Excellence Awards, held recently at Taumeasina Resort, Samoa, taking home the top and most sought after award, the ‘National Tourism Excellence Award’ and ‘Best Accommodation’.
Nominated in five categories, Seabreeze Resort was truly the star of the evening, which celebrated the outstanding performances of those who have made exceptional contributions to Samoa’s Tourism Industry within the past 12 months.
The Samoa Tourism Excellence Awards were judged by visitors who were surveyed throughout the year and the Tourism Standards Committee which conducted inspections during 2016.
According to Wendy Booth, owner of Seabreeze Resort, “to win the most prestigious award at the first ever Samoa Tourism Excellence Awards is a privilege and we are honoured to be recognised as the best in Samoa, especially considering the tough competition we were up against in both categories.”
“This award means so much to us and our staff are overjoyed. With a philosophy of ‘the harder you work the luckier you get’, my husband Chris and I dedicate these awards to our committed and skilled staff who make this all possible.” Says Wendy.
“The last eleven years have been so rewarding, seeing a dream to create a utopia for couples in an untouched Island paradise come true. With our high expectations and our likeminded staff determined to exceed our guest’s expectations, seeing guests wave goodbye with tears in their eyes is our greatest reward, but being acknowledged at this level, especially in our home country is just an amazing achievement.” Continues Wendy.
These two awards have capped off an amazing four years for Seabreeze Resort who have taken out an avalanche of awards on worldwide levels including winning ‘Leading Hotel in Samoa’ at the World Travel Awards for the past four years (2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013) and being recognised as the number one hotel in Upolo on tripadvisor.com and ranked 11 out of 25 for the Top 25 small hotels in the South Pacific in the 2016 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice™ awards. Also in 2016 and 2014 Seabreeze was voted 9th in the Top 25 resorts in the South Pacific for Romance in the Travellers’ Choice Awards and in 2014 and 2013 Seabreeze was named as Tripadvisors “Travellers’ Choice® winner and voted on Trip Advisor as one of the TOP 10 resorts in the South Pacific for “Romance & Value”.
