Tanoa Tusitala Hotel, Apia - Samoa

Samoa welcomes a new addition to its hotels list with the opening of the Tanoa Tusitala Hotel in Apia.  Part of the Tanoa Hotel Group, the hotel is scheduled to open on July 1.
 
Tanoa Hotel Group Chairman, Mr Y P Reddy acknowledged the challenges in the past year but remarked “as promised we would successfully weather the storm and are now, thanks to the hard work and diligence of  all those involved in this project in Samoa, in Fiji and in New Zealand, I am delighted to announce that we will be open for service on July 1st  2010.”
 
While certain areas of the hotel and the conference centre will not be completed by this time and construction will be ongoing, the group has promised that “no disruption is anticipated to our guest’s enjoyment and their overall experience as a result of the ongoing work.”
 
The Tanoa Tusitala Hotel once completed will be one of the accommodation highlights of Apia and will bring a great product offering especially for the MICE market. Designwise, the new Reception Fale may prove to be a great interest to some, highlighting first hand the work of skilled Samoan craftsmen in the construction and decoration of the structure.
 
Mr Reddy added that ‘Whilst the ‘re-opening chapter’ has been completed in spite of the many challenges we faced , the next chapter is undoubtedly the most critical as the operational team strive to consistently deliver the style of service and guest experience which we believe this hotel is capable of. Our philosophy, as a company, is to work tirelessly in the development of skilled personnel from the country in which we operate. Samoa is no different and I will take great personal interest in seeing how our talented Samoan team seize this great opportunity.’
