CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa has awarded the largest number of employees at any one time for outstanding service. The awards, presented on Tuesday, August 15, were in two categories: firstly, for the third quarter of May, June and July 2017; and secondly, for the entire season. The event had as its theme: “50 Shades of Blue”.

The presentation ceremony and staff party, at Café Mediterraneo, marking the end of the season, was preceded by a brief address from Vice President and General Manager, Mr. Stephane Zaharia. He reflected on the opening of the Reef by CuisinArt in November 2016, at the start of the season, and the additional employees who had taken up employment at the property.
“This season was a great season from the Reef standpoint of a new hotel which is normally a very challenging task, and all of you have done a great job in making that happen,” he continued. “I would like to thank all of you. We opened on time and all of you deserve a big round of applause.”
