Island Hopper Vacations Samoa Opening (2017)
In 2017 we opened our new Island Hopper office on our neighbouring Pacific Island gem: Samoa. With Alise Stunnenberg as General Manager of Island Hopper Vacations Samoa, who heads this operation.
Robert Skews and Product Manager, Kristina Taoro, travelled to Samoa in early June 2017 to meet with targeted properties on Upolu (Samoa's main island) and Sava'i, to negotiate 2018/19 contracts. Site inspections were held at the same time to gather all the necessary information required for our fact-sheets and websites.
We also had three of our Turama representatives including Roberta Bertazza, Ruth Meerkamp and Kay Jackson who visited Samoa, with our Sales & Marketing Manager Stephen Doherty, to familiarize themselves with these properties and to explore the two beautiful islands.
We wish to bring a professional selling team to Samoa with the skills on the ground to provide the level of service that the Northern Markets demand and what is not currently available in Samoa at the levels to give Overseas Wholesalers and Travel Agencies the confidence to sell a holiday in Samoa.
While aiming to promote Samoa as a unique country to visit and enjoy, we will provide the full Samoa experience, so that clients can enjoy their whole visit with Quality Accommodation at the level they choose.
We look forward to sharing Samoa with the world through what we do best!
