Sonaisali Island Resort, Fiji is proud to announce the appointment of Charmaine Tale as the new Director of Sales & Marketing. Charmaine joins the Sonaisali Management Team after working in extensive tourism roles in Australia.

Charmaine has a long association with Fiji and brings to the role her knowledge and experience of Fiji Tourism and also the Fijian Islands, culture and people. Immediately prior to relocating to Fiji Charmaine’s role was as Assistant Retirement Village Manager of an exclusive 271 unit Retirement Village in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. During this time Charmaine was able to demonstrate her strong leadership and operational capabilities with this expansive Village in the coordination and implementation of Fire & Evacuation Procedures for staff and all 330 residents in addition to all OH&S responsibilities & EGT_Artical Banner B 250x250reporting for the Village. Charmaine is a confident communicator and strives for excellence.

Charmaine has also worked in the Wholesale side of Tourism where she was the Sales Manager for a leading Fiji Wholesaler to Fiji. Her role included leading a team of Sales & Reservations consultants to achieving maximum sales across all Fiji markets. Charmaine was well versed with most if not all properties, with networking, business development & sales being her strengths. This in turn made for a very strong returnee and referral conversion.

Charmaine didn’t hesitate accepting the Director of Sales & Marketing role as Fiji was always in the back of her mind. “A dream come true”. She was keen to return to the Tourism industry and brings to the Sonaisali team her extensive knowledge of Fiji and her Sales & Service experience in a wide range of areas. Charmaine anticipates a prosperous future working in conjunction with the dynamic Management team at Sonaisali Island Resort.

Charmaine is also very excited to be based in Fiji, having travelled all over Fiji for both business and pleasure, for close to 40 years. Her connection to Fiji is also a personal one having 2 children of a Fijian father. Charmaine is looking forward to continuing her connection to Fiji and being part of Fiji as a country and promoting its warm hospitality and great future in tourism.

“It was an easy decision to accept the role at Sonaisali, being very familiar with the property. It sounds a cliché but it has been my dream for a very long time to live and work in Fiji and this IS the opportunity of a lifetime. The timing is just right”

Sonaisali Island Resort’s Managing Director, Aaron McGrath, welcomes Charmaine to the team and looks forward to working with her. “We are very excited to welcome Charmaine to our team at Sonaisali Island Resort. Not only will she bring a new and exciting focus on business development, but also be an innovative leader for the Sales Team.” Says Aaron.

4 Star Sonaisali Island Resort is a true island escape, a small green dot in the beautiful South Pacific Ocean – yet the world you’ve left behind is only a 3 minute boat ride across the lagoon from the Main Island and 25mins drive from Nadi International Airport.
