Ephelia Resort bids farewell to regional GM

14-June-2014
Mr GuittonAfter five years as the regional general manager (GM) for the Constance Hotels and Resorts group, Philippe Guitton will be leaving the Constance Ephelia Seychelles.

He joined the hotel during the pre-opening phase and prior to that, he spent three years on Praslin, as the GM of the Constance Lemuria Seychelles from 2006 to 2009.

During the five years that Mr Guitton has been working with the Constance Ephélia Resort here in Seychelles, he has demonstrated a high level of professionalism in his duties both towards the staff of the resort and to the guests.

With his expertise and knowledge of five star hotels, he has helped to build a stellar reputation for the Constance Ephelia Seychelles both in the archipelago and worldwide.

Mr Guitton, together with his management team and staff, has also contributed in helping the communities around the hotel, focusing his efforts on children.

The government of Seychelles has attached a great importance to the protection of the environment and Constance Ephelia Seychelles has always been a beacon of the industry in that respect, being 100% sustainable in terms of water and electricity.

Mr Guitton also promoted the conservation of the eco-system around the resort and in Seychelles. He helped Ephelia put a lot of emphasis on the rehabilitation of the mangrove forest in Port Launay.
Upon his departure, Mr Guitton will be replaced in his duties by Jean-Marc Lagesse who has over 30 years of experience in the hotel and tourism industry, managing two five-star resorts in Mauritius.

The management and staff of the Constance Ephelia Resort would like to express their heartfelt thanks to Mr Guitton for his hard work and wish him and his family good luck in his future endeavours.
On this same note the resort would like to welcome Mr Lagesse to Constance Ephelia Seychelles.

Ephelia resort promotes Seychellois to senior position

04-July-2015
Having spent 27 years in the tourism industry, Ruth Vidot has proven to the youth that working in this sector is really interesting, fun, rewarding and Ms Vidotcan provide a professional career path.

Debuting as linen keeper with the opening of a 206-room resort was really a big challenge for Ms Vidot, due to the fact that she had always worked for small and medium-size hotel establishments.

She joined the Plantation Club Hotel & Casino in October 1988 where she acquired various knowledge and skills which helped her in her personal development.

Ten years later, the audacious and motivated Ms Vidot decided to share her knowledge and experiences she had gained in the industry to the young generation. In 1998 she took another challenge to join the hotel school as a housekeeping instructor, where she contributed to empower and groom the youth for the development and economic growth of the tourism industry.

Deep down in her heart, the hotel industry is where she feels she belongs. Therefore, when she learned of the opening of the Constance Ephelia Seychelles (CES), Ms Vidot applied for the post of team resort manager. Her duties and responsibilities were to ensure a smooth day to day operation and upkeep of staff accommodation.

“I have always wanted to move up the hierarchy and driven by passion I have provided excellent service and my efforts paid off when I got the opportunity to transfer in the housekeeping department to be in charge of public area. With this new challenge I got the chance to work with both locals and expatriates supervisor as well as line staff,” Ms Vidot says.

“During my tenure, I was given training to improve my management skills and also better knowledge to work with cultural diversity. My ambition for growth was achieved when I became the first Seychellois to be promoted as the assistant executive housekeeper with the biggest hotel in the Indian Ocean (CES) and in the Seychelles. I am indeed very proud of this great achievement,” says Ms Vidot.

She describes herself as a “reserved person by nature” and says she interacts well with her team and strives to ensure that team spirit prevails.

Her main focus is to achieve the hotel’s departmental objectives and improve its standards.

“I am confident with the assistance of our executive team, that our targets will be met and we will continue to be the best 5-Star resort in Seychelles and in the Indian Ocean,” says Ms Vidot.

Her message to all young people out there who want to achieve any goal in their career life is: “Be determined, passionate, patient and devoted in what you seek to achieve for you to climb the ladder of success and progression in your job. After all, one should not think about oneself, but think of the satisfaction you derive from fulfilling your roles to the best of your ability and make your guests, employer, colleagues, family members and your country proud of your achievements as we all have a vital role to play in keeping the tourism industry as the number one pillar of our economy.”

Ephelia resort hands over projects to community

Ephelia resort hands over projects to community

09-April-2016
The Port Glaud community can now benefit from a bus shelter, an access ramp, a warning sign and a jungle gym.
The implementation of these projects worth around R250,000 took place last year and it falls under the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of Constance Ephelia resort.
The general manager of the resort, Kai Hoffmeister, handed over the projects to the Port Glaud district administrator Egbert Aglae in a short ceremony last week.
The bus shelter is situated opposite the entrance of the hotel for the purpose of serving hotel guests and staff as well as residents of the area.
The warning sign, which is posted in the Port Glaud church parking, next to the beach, warns of drowning risks, other dangers and best practices for a person’s safety as there have been past drowning incidents in this particular area.
The new jungle gym is next to the DA’s office where it will be used by the children of the district.
During the ceremony 25 creche children got to enjoy themselves on the monkey bars, climbing and swinging on the equipment.
Mr Kai also handed over a ramp to the pastor responsible for Port Glaud and Grand Anse churches, Father Thierry Rafalimanana and a representative of the church Barry Emmanuel.
The ramp is at the entrance of the Port Glaud church and it will provide access for church goers, mostly elderly or disabled persons, and also ease the transportation of coffins from and to church during funerals.
Mr Kai was accompanied by the Ephelia resort landscape manager Sedwick Thomas.
Mr Kai said since the opening of the resort in 2010, they have always found ways to help the community in any way possible.
“These projects help with the integration of our resort in the community especially for the youth. For our part we will continue the cooperation with the district administration,” he said.
Mr Aglae is urging the public, especially the residents of Port Glaud, to make good use of these new facilities and take care of them.
“I wish to thank Ephelia resort for the sponsorship and we hope to further this collaboration. To those who use these facilities, I urge you to use them wisely, very carefully and not to damage or vandalise them so that the future generation can also benefit from them,” he said.
