Prize winner from Noumea over the moon with holiday in Vanuatu

Media Release, Joanne Wade : Vanuatu has been officially described as one of the happiest places on Earth, and the big smiles from prize winners, Madam and Monsieur Perez left no doubt. Madame Nicole Perez was the lucky winner of a week’s holiday in Vanuatu drawn at the special Vanuatu promotion held in Noumea  a few weeks ago.  On arriving at Poppys on the Lagoon, the happy couple expressed their delight in winning such a wonderful prize. Guest Relations Supervisor, Mr Albert Sapoa who had represented Poppys on the Lagoon and Friendly Bungalows at the Noumea promotion, greeted the couple on their arrival. “Their first impression when they arrived at the resort was very good, I could see it from their eyes and smiles. They were surprised of the location, garden, rooms and warmness and genuine  welcome from the staff, I was very pleased their first view of Vanuatu was so very positive” said Mr Sapoa. The lucky couple spent their stay at Poppys enjoying their complimentary massages, kayaking on the Lagoon and dining in the Poppys Banana Leaf CafĂ© overlooking the peaceful Erakor Lagoon. Poppys award winning gardens took their eye and Madame Perez was found taking photos at every opportunity of the lush gardens and flowers, perhaps more tropical than generally found in the Noumea surrounds. Most telling, and most rewarding,  was their decision to extend their stay, cancelling other plans on favour of a few more days at Poppys and a few more days in Paradise. The prize to Vanuatu was the initiative of the Management and the staff of Vanuatu Tourism Office and Madame Perez won the winning draw during the Mini-Toktok in Noumea on the 23rd of March 2012. Poppys on the Lagoon and Friendly Bungalows are happy and proud to support this initiative, and can see the benefits for the genuine promotion of tourism by showcasing the best Vanuatu has to offer. Congratulations to all concerned. Top image: Madame Perez and husband at Poppys with Managing director Peter Rottevele, and Albert.
