We like to think of Peligoni as a home away from home, and our guest relations team are the perfect hosts. The level of pride we take is second to none, our warm and friendly approach is never forgotten and our attention to detail is what makes our guests come back year after year.
The main role of our guest relations team is getting to know our guests by regularly touching base with them throughout their stay. They will learn their individual likes, dislikes, make recommendations, introductions and provide a familiar face to ensure each guest enjoys Peligoni at it’s finest.
No matter what our guests’ idea of the perfect holiday is, the guest relations team is on hand to make it a special experience full of fond memories and an eagerness to return.
Managing dinner reservations, villa hostings, promoting excursions including charters of our vintage yacht, Odyssey, and our weekly trip to the famous Shipwreck site are all part of a day’s work. As well as ensuring that all guests know what is happening in the club each day and what’s not to be missed on the weekly agenda.
Working very closely with the reception team, Guest Relations will know absolutely everything there is to know about the club, the villas, the local area, and the people; giving them the confidence to make valuable recommendations and suggestions that will allow our guests to thoroughly enjoy their holiday with us.
