Mana Island Resort and Spa hosted its Annual Awards Night at its resort hall this week.

Mana Island Resorts chief operations officer Hiroshi Matsumoto said the reason all the staff were present at the resort was because of the success of tourism industry in Fiji.

“We all should nature tourism and look after it as it looks after us,” he said.

“Tourism is the highest income earner for Fiji and that is why we should look after it and maintain our standards.”

He said the awards night was hosted by the resort to honour the diligence of its employees.

The Employee of the Year Award winner Samisoni Wainiqolo said he had worked hard over the years and was very pleased with his award.

“I am very happy with my award as I worked tirelessly for it,” he said.

Mr Samisoni had received a return ticket to Sydney, Australia for the 2017 Sydney Sevens.

He had also won this award in 2010.

Mr Samisoni said these types of awards really boosts the morale and improves the performance of workers in their profession.

“I won this award in 2010 also and it motivated me to work harder and with more confidence,” he said.

The Supervisor of the year award was another major award presented at Monday’s award function.

The winner of this award Matia Logamoce said he always had the goal to win this award when he started to work at the resort.

He said he was honoured to win this award this year as the competition was high.

“All our staff members performed extremely well which could be seen in Mana’s success”.

“I feel grateful and honoured to win this award despite the stiff competition,” he said.

The Mana Island Resort also donated a sum of $6,000 to the Fiji Cancer Society as its contribution towards treatment of cancer patients in Fiji.

The Cancer Society president Philip Low said this yearly contributions enables them to improve the cancer medical services in Fiji.

“This money will go towards the chemo treatments of cancer patients in Fiji,” he said.

Meanwhile a total of four award winners would be travelling to Australia in January as their reward for their excellent performance throughout 2016.
