The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Bay Gar­dens Re­sorts edged out stiff com­pe­ti­tion from nu­mer­ous St. Lu­cian busi­nesses to cap­ture the cov­eted ‘Busi­ness of the Year’ award, for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year.

The pres­ti­gious award was pre­sented to the lo­cal­ly­owned ho­tel group at the St. Lu­cia Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try and Agri­cul­ture’s 2015 Sixth An­nual St. Lu­cia Busi­ness Awards. It is awarded to the com­pany that has shown an over­all stel­lar per­for­mance in the ar­eas cov­ered in their award sub­mis­sions.

Bay Gar­dens Re­sorts also won the award for Mar­ket­ing Ex­cel­lence (an award it won back in 2013) for its demon­stra­tion of in­no­va­tive and ex­em­plary mar­ket­ing strate­gies that have helped to se­cure a con­stant rev­enue stream for the com­pany. In ad­di­tion, the com­pany was also nom­i­nated for the fol­low­ing awards for 2015: • Award for Ser­vice Ex­cel­lence • Green Award • Award for Cor­po­rate


The com­pany’s Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor, Sanovnik Des­tang, on ac­cept­ing the awards com­mended the en­tire Bay Gar­dens Re­sorts team for con­tin­ued hard work and com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence through the years. He said that it is mainly through the ef­forts of the team and guid­ance of its man­age­ment and board of di­rec­tors that the com­pany is able to en­joy con­tin­ued suc­cess.

Bay Gar­dens Re­sorts was founded by Des­mond and Joyce Des­tang over 20 years ago. Joyce Des­tang plays an ac­tive role as the com­pany’s Man­ag­ing Direc­tor and won the ‘En­tre­pre­neur of the Year’ award at last year’s award cer­e­mony. She said, “It gives me great joy to see that an idea we [Joyce and Des­mond Des­tang] had so many years ago has blos­somed into this suc­cess­ful com­pany. The win­ning in­gre­di­ent here is a great team, from the top down; they have poured so much of them­selves into Bay Gar­dens Re­sorts and for that I’m grate­ful.”
