The Coral Strand Smart Choice hotel is hosting the 12 contestants for a three-night stay as part of the final preparations for tonight’s Miss Seychelles … Another World pageant which will be held at the ICCS.
Coral Strand has offered to host the young ladies for three nights’ hospitality to ensure they are in fit form to strut their stuff on stage tonight.
The girls checked in on Thursday morning and have been in and out of the hotel travelling daily to the ICCS for the final dress rehearsals and adding final touches to their wardrobe of the different costumes for the pageant.
Visitors staying at the Coral Strand have taken this opportunity to take a souvenir photograph with the contestants as they move around the hotel’s property including the pool area and beach front.
They have been enjoying meals at the Coral Strand’s main food outlets, the Mahek Indian Restaurant, the Ocean Deck, the Coral Asia and the Island Trader.
Seychelles Tourism Board’s chief executive Sherin Naiken has praised the management of the Coral Strand Smart hotel for having supported the pageant with such a partnership and she described it as being another fine example of joining hands with the private sector.
On his part Coral Strand general manager Denis Verkorubhov has said: “We are proud to be associated with the Miss Seychelles beauty pageant and see the stay of the contestants at our hotel as another marketing initiative to support events that promote the venue as the elected Miss Seychelles 2016 will be going to Miss World to represent and market Seychelles and its tourism product.
Other resorts such as the Kempinski Resort has also joined in as a partner and hosted the contestants to a luncheon recently following an island tour aimed at familiarising themselves with the scenic spots of Mahé. They were taken around Mahé by 7 Degrees South.
Creole Travel Services is another local destination management company providing a daily shuttle from the Coral Strand to the ICCS for the contestants to attend their final rehearsals.
