Coconut Bay captures Transat Award

Phillipe Page of Transat presents award to GM of Coconut bay Vishal Bhalla.

A leading hotel here was last week the proud recipient of a major award from an international company. Coconut Bay Beach Resort and Spa, located in Vieux Fort, last week received top honours from Transat. The hotel was awarded the prestigious “Green Level Award” for Health and Safety by the company.
Transat is an integrated tour operator that specializes in holiday travel and offers more than 60 destination countries. Created in Canada, it now has offices in many other countries and owns an air carrier, provides destination services, is active in the accommodation industry and operates an extensive distribution network. The company operates regular flight schedules here particularly during the busy winter season. Transat
offers its customers an extensive selection of destinations and holiday packages on all continents. Its key markets are sun destinations in Mexico, the Caribbean and Florida.
The award presented to Coconut Bay by Transat is based on having to adhere to strict operating criteria for Health and Safety in all aspects of operation.
Of the 246 hotels within the Transat Travel Portfolio, Coconut Bay ranked within the top 50 hotels and was the only hotel from the Eastern Caribbean to qualify for this level. The General Manager of Coconut Bay stated that the resort continues to strive for excellence in this regard and foresees more accolades in the future.
“We are pleased that the consistent hard work of the team is being recognized by the industry” said General Manager Vishal Bhalla.  “We still have a long way to go, and this is an important milestone indicating we are heading in the right direction,” he added.
Coconut bay is a 254 room resort catering to families and couples with two seemingly different worlds in one breathtaking setting along the bay in the south. An adult oasis flanks one side, while the other side boasts one of the liveliest family playgrounds complete with swimming pools and water slides. The resort also boasts four dining options, five bars, three swimming pools, a full-service spa, kids club, gym and boutiques.
