Alatsas leads a group of 500 employees, working closely with the team to meet the ever-changing demands of the hotel’s discerning clientele. “We create a symbiotic relationship – inclusiveness, mutual respect and getting to our targets together so the team at The Venue Corniche is able to deliver service from the heart.”
For the upcoming year, Alatsas says that The Venue Corniche will be holding a number of competitions and activities through its digital platforms that will enable the followers to win free hotel stays, a meal at The Venue’s new concept restaurants, or a holiday getaway to incredible destinations for lucky couples.
