RIU hits the top spot !
Rated by Cheap Caribbean customers as number one in the Caribbean among 650 resorts was reason enough for RIU Jamaica Palace to host a celebratory reception.
The hotel group turned all knobs, removed all stops and fêted the Apple Leisure online subsidiary’s Dana Studebaker and Mike Lowery on the beach of the resort for being awarded the first recipients of the prestigious ‘Noble Beach Prize’.
The difference with the beach this time was the food was five-star, the chairs were far more fabulous than chaise, and the bistro tables were high-tech.
Riu’s Regional Director and general manager at the Palace, Frank Sondern, and his team had spread the red carpet for the intimate group at the celebratory party, while the resort’s director of sales, Niurka Garcia-Linton, stretched her opening arms in acceptance of the accolades.
Bragging rights, plus US$100,000 in marketing exposure, was enough drive for those who turned out to lift their wine glasses in celebration.
