Evergreen Tours new Magical Evening Tour

Over 50 delegates from various hotels, resorts, tours and bank houses in Port Vila went on a famil trip and the launching of Evergreen Tour’s new product, Ma’tepara Magical Evening Tour. When asked what ‘ma’tepara’ meant, the term translated to ‘eye where noise comes from’. For these 50 or so people, the evening of Wednesday September 30th ended with style, class, and pride of a Ni-Vanuatu’s capability and potential to be successful in tourism businesses. Evergreen Tours is 100% locally owned and managed by Philip Malas and Family, from Mele Village.

Evergreen Tours also offer Cascades Waterfall tour

The tour, which revolves around the Mele culture, commenced at 5.30pm with hotel pick up, followed by a quick stop over at The Nippers along Mele Bay, for cocktails and a brief talk on the background history of Mele village by Julia King, Sales and Marketing Manager of Evergreen Tours. Complimenting Mrs King’s brief, were sweet serenades by an elderly group from Mele village singing in local dialect, followed by a quick 5 minutes drive up to the Mele Cascades for a traditional custom dressing show, live entertainment from some of the country’s top artists like Stanely Mete and the Seven Revelations, and more nibbles and drinks.

The Sebel Vanuatu

Mirvac Hotels & Resorts will cease management of The Sebel Vanuatu, including all associated activities of sales & marketing, the food & beverage operations and conferencing from 1st December 2009. Mirvac Hotels & Resorts took over management of the property under their 4.5 star Sebel brand in April 2007 and quickly reached a competitive operating level within the first 12 month trading period. The Sebel Vanuatu has enjoyed a robust trade over the past 12 months drawing upon the brand’s strong distribution network, Mirvac’s CRS capabilities and the group’s national and global network of sales and marketing professionals.

Under The Sebel banner, the property has played host to many important events and conferences, including the most successful Tok Tok to date, government delegations, international VIPs, cabaret artists and entertainers, and opened the Jupiter’s Casino. Mr Andrew Turner, CEO of Mirvac Hotels & Resorts said, “We wish the owner of the hotel every success under his own brand of The Grand which will continue to operate along-side sister hotel Iririki.  We feel confident the ground work achieved by Mirvac in gaining international prominence as well as positioning the hotel within the local market, will place him in a strong position going forward”.
