The hotel management decided to host a presentation ceremony for them on Tuesday evening to mark this year’s Labour Day.

As rewards, they received certificates, cash prizes and vouchers for restaurant dinners, stays in hotels or a safari excursion.

Coral Strand general manager Grisele Camille said these workers have seen ownership and management change and yet they have remained with the hotel.

She congratulated those who received their awards, which she said they deserved because of their strength and dedication.
Among those attending the ceremony were managers and other hotel staff.

Mrs Camille told the staff that with the problems the tourism industry is facing as a result of the global economic recession, they all have to double their efforts for the clients.

Each of the 18 staff who have served the hotel for 10-19 years received R1,000 in cash, a certificate and a voucher for dinner for two at the Island Trader Restaurant.

Those who have worked for 20-33 years received the same awards, except that the cash gift was R2,000. From this group, the longest-serving six were also given vouchers for various treats including a safari excursion, stays in hotels and dinner.

Raymonde Charlot, who is the longest-serving worker at Coral Strand with 37 years, received a voucher for dinner from La Scala restaurant and R5,000, apart from her other prizes.
