2016 Year in Review: All the right moves
The past year at Club de Soleil was marked by a significant resort enhancement, pool area upgrades, and two prominent managerial promotions.
Club 2 lobby makeover
When we asked him to redesign the Club 2 lobby, interior designer Ron Nicola accepted the project with a single goal in mind.
“Regardless of the property I design,” he said, “I want everyone to experience a WOW moment when they see the finished product.”
Mission accomplished, Ron.
Club 2’s lobby received a comprehensive makeover that transformed its appearance. Enhancements included fresh paint, new furniture, drapery and artwork. Ron also added area rugs and pillows with accent colors to the couches and chairs, and gave the fireplace a whole new look with new paint, tile and doors.
New interior paint served the dual purpose of lightening the environmental space and shocking the eye with deft splashes of color.
“Dramatic flair is what I’m all about,” Ron said. “I wanted the owners to feel a more personable décor and design, not just another commercial lobby.”
We think he succeeded and hope you agree!
New resort general manager
We were pleased to announce the March promotion of Stephanie Ford to resort general manager. Under Stephanie’s leadership, your resort has continued to flourish throughout 2016 and benefitted from her industry experience.
One of Stephanie’s primary goals for Club de Soleil was maintaining our record of excellent customer service.
“Training and development is near and dear to my heart,” she said at the time of her promotion, “and I plan to take time with our team to ensure our owners enjoy the best possible experience during their stay.”
We have every confidence that Stephanie will continue to succeed in 2017!
New resort assistant general manager
Over the summer we welcomed Herschel Cortez to Club de Soleil as our new assistant general manager. Herschel had worked for Soleil Management in a variety of capacities, assuming positions of increasingly greater responsibility.
“I love the resort,” she said, “and working with (resort general manager) Stephanie Ford has allowed me to learn a whole lot more.”
Herschel is known for her enthusiasm, dedication and loyalty, and we are fortunate to have her at Club.
New pool furniture
Just in time for fall, in October we installed new loungers, tables, chairs, and umbrellas in our two pool areas, ensuring you’d have even more fun in the sun!
