The Adventure of a Final Race to Open a 5 star Hotel is such a daily adrenaline rush like no other and is for  hospitality professional worth years of experience in matter of problem solving, management skills and leadership. After 2 month spent preparing and following up mostly equipment orders in Jakarta I was sent on site in Center town Manado for the final 6 month stretch to the opening.Adventure Final Race Open 5 star Hotel.

At this stage we were striving to get the opening done for the very important Asean Coral Triangle summit chaired by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and therefore whatever project situation might have been at the time the property had to be ready for this major national event.

The building was already standing but was still at the time behind schedule and seen from this angle the challenge was not going to be easy. Anyhow the building itself was the sole responsibility of the contractor and our team was only missioned to set up the operation which we started on the race right the way.
