The Tanoa Tusitala Hotel in Apia, Samoa was a hub of excitement this week.

Not only did the Fijian-owned hotel host parts of  the United Nations Conference on Small Island Developing States but the UN’s very own General Secretary, Ban Ki-moon stayed there.

Mr Ban  opened  the four-day conference, themed: ‘The sustainable development of small island developing States through genuine and durable partnerships’.

Chairman of the Tanoa Group Yanktesh Paermal (YP) Reddy expressed how proud the 4.5 star international hotel was to have hosted a man of Mr Ban’s stature.

Mr Ban was generous enough with his time to have photographs taken with the Tanoa Team and Mr YP Reddy.

Mr Reddy said: “The Samoan government and people of the independent state of Samoa can rightfully be incredibly proud of the way it has showcased its beautiful people and culture to the international community.

“I am very glad we have been able to assist with the SIDS 2014 conference, and I am also very proud of the hospitality and professionalism shown by all of the Management and Staff of the Tanoa Tusitala Hotel.”
