THE PRESTIGE AWARDS
Tuesday 2nd April 2013

It was an unforgettable evening of celebration and entertainment at the Lord Nelson’s Ballroom on March 26 as employees of Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa walked down the red carpet at the annual Prestige Awards. Radio personality Sly J hosted the black tie affair, which was attended by more than 150 people. In his welcoming remarks, General Manager Gerald Christ applauded team members for their tireless efforts and outstanding work. “We are here this evening to recognize your achievements because the phenomenal customer service that you provide to our guests keeps them coming back year after year,” commented Christ.

The Most Improved Team Member Award was won by Housekeeping’s Felix Alexander while his colleague Javon Jarvis took home the Sandals Foundation Community Spirit Award. Alicia Aska from Snapshots was given the Sandals Earthguard prize and Catherine Francis from the Food and Beverage Department copped the Smile Award for Courtesy. The Concierge Department’s Stephen Georges won the coveted Supervisor of the Year award and Snapshots Sharee Philip won the Revenue Earner’s Award.  The Hotel Manager’s Heart of the House honours went to Joy-Ann Bryan from Watersports while the Kitchen’s Anthony Swaby won the General Manager’s Award.  The Financial Controller Award was given to Cost Control’s Conroy Lawrence. The Manager of the Year Award went to Donovan Dobson who is the Director of Guest Services.

Invited guests Berryl and Jack Napper presented the Most Guest Nominated Award to Nasasha White from the Weddings Department. The UK couple has been coming to Sandals for more than fifteen years and they recently celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary. “We were so honoured to be invited to such a special event and we relish the opportunity to share in the joy of these dedicated employees who always go the extra mile,” said an ecstatic Mrs. Napper.

The highly contested Team Member of the Year Award went to Soon Come Back’s Brendaline Xavier.  Overcome by emotion, Xavier said that she was thrilled to be the recipient of such an incredible award. “ I am utterly surprised but I am grateful and humbled and I am determined to continue to excel because I love what I do,” said a jubilant Xavier. She will automatically compete against the winners from other Sandals resorts for the Ultimate Team Member of the Year Award. Richardo Hughes from the Maintenance Department was named Runner Up Team Member of the Year.

One of the highlights of the evening was a dramatic presentation performed by the Management Team. General Manager Gerald Christ had the crowd on their feet when he led a dance routine to Michael Jackson’s BAD. There were also special performances by the SHIVA dancers and team members danced the night away to the sounds of DJ Undercover.
