Vanuatu’s Leading Resort Appoints New Director of Sales and Marketing                                                

Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu is proud to announce the appointment of Ms Seema Goundar to the position of Director of Sales and Marketing as part of InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) ‘Room to Grow’ philosophy.  

Seema joins the Vanuatu team following her time as Sales and Marketing Manager at Holiday Inn Suva, Fiji.  Seema led the Sales and Marketing team there and during her 2-and-a-half-year tenure, the hotel underwent a major refurbishment and her department proudly scored 10 out of 10 consistently in the company ‘Winning’ performance metrics.

Ms Goundar says she is already feeling ‘right at home’ at the Vanuatu based Resort.

“I am extremely excited to join a Resort and team with such an outstanding reputation within Vanuatu and international destinations,” says Ms Goundar. “I am looking forward to nurturing relationships and delivering exceptional, authentic experiences to guests as this is key to creating ‘great hotels guests love’ ”.

Having recently re-opened the Resort, Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu General Manager, Simon Douthett, said he is very excited about the positive contribution Seema will make to the property and that they already have some fantastic projects well underway.

“Seema’s knowledge of the pacific region and all that it entails, has ensured she has hit the ground running here in Vanuatu,” said Mr Douthett.

“We have a spectacular destination and with Seema’s expertise, we can spread the word near and far about the unique experience we offer here at the Resort.”

Seema was born and raised in Fiji. Her extensive marketing experience across various business sectors including banking (ANZ)  and FMCG (Colgate-Palmolive), plus her knowledge of branding and strategy, is crucial in taking Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu to new heights on the Sales and Marketing front.

Located just minutes from town, with exclusive lagoon frontage, Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu truly is an oasis in Port Vila and has become the South Pacific Resort of choice for island holiday-makers.

Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu boasts 148 guest accommodation rooms including themed Family Suites and unique Overwater Villas. Resort facilities include two stunning pool areas, kids club, day spa, nine-hole golf course, Verandah Restaurant, Lobby Bar and Pool Bar featuring our famous wood-fired Pizza oven.
