The couple opened the massive creaky front gate and drove up the massive windy driveway until they reached the mansion sized fortress, they jumped out the car and stood and admired the building. “It’s beautiful “shouted Chloe in a very pleasurable manor, “I can’t believe it’s yours”. “ I……I don’t know what to say, after all the things that have happened, you know, mum passing a few months ago, my depression and drug abuse, dads suicide after mum left us, it’s just strange that after all of these horrific things, out of the blue I receive a letter from an auntie that I never knew about, saying that she has left me a hotel that has been run by my family for generations in her will” said Jayden. “I’m telling you babe, good things are going to start happening to us” replied Chloe. The gigantic front door of the hotel opened and 2 people stepped out that looked like badly dressed waiters,” hello, we are Ingrid and Rueben and we run this hotel, you must be Jayden, we’ve been expecting you, please follow us in and we’ll show you around” said Reuben in a very posh accent. They followed them in quietly but with an urge of pure excitement, as soon as they walked into the building, the doors closed with a loud creak, immediately Reuben started to lock the door, “why are you locking the door” said Chloe in a slightly worried voice. “We wouldn’t want anyone disturbing you now would we, plus all the customers left this morning so you are completely alone. Right, what can I get you to drink” spoke Rueben, I’ll have an orange juice and Jayden will have water” said Chloe rather controlling. Whilst Reuben and Ingrid went to fetch the drinks Chloe and Jayden sat down on an ancient red sofa that was residing in the living room that was covered in cob webs. Around 10 minutes later they returned with the drinks, Reuben placed down the two glasses on a little table that was an…...

...Paradise I stepped off the hot, crowded plane and into the bright, dazzling sun light. The humid hit my face as if I were getting into a sauna; while the thick, moist air filled my lungs, I could feel the heat of the black pavement comfortably warming and basking my legs like a heater. My family and I finally made it to Hawaii. I was not always a fan of family vacations; somehow, something always seemed to go wrong. However, this vacation, nothing could ruin my fun. I took a deep breath and smelled a sweet, flower scent of intoxicating aromas. As my family and I entered the doors leading to the terminal, three girls in grass skirts approached us; they placed beautifully colored leis around our necks. I buried my nose into the damp, cold petals. I breathed in the exhilarating small of the pink and yellow flowers. We pushed our way through the crowded terminal, which was full of anxious and restless tourists waiting to get a glimpse of paradise. My Dad managed to get our luggage through the mobs of people, and we proceeded outside where my Aunt Rose was waiting to pick us up. My Aunt Rose was known for her crazy style of clothing and her big feathered hair. And to my surprise, off in the distance, a I little petite woman wearing a short pink dress stood across the street waving her arms. My aunt nearly tackled me to the ground as she hugged me, screaming in my ear and whip-lashing me from side to side. She always smelled of cigarettes and her perfume reminded me of a cheap......

Paradise in Jamaica

...Paradise in Jamaica After going to galveston each year in texas, it was nothing compared to the beach the Williams family went to on their vacation to Jamaica. The beautiful atmosphere they witnessed was the most unforgettable moment ever. They stayed at the hotel right in front of the beach, directly right in the middle of restaurants, clubs, and water parks. Everything around was beautiful, including the soft sand that went through peoples toes walking on the side of the beach, also how big and clear the ocean was. The ocean was so memorable it was really a paradise just exactly how everyone had described it. Being on the beach watching of the waves as it hits the wind, the smell of the food coming from every direction, watching everyone do something different, listening to the kids on the water parks. It was all there, it was all true from the moment spent near the beach, to the relaxing music of the culture, and the look of the various Jamaican food. The ocean was as clear as it was going to get watching everything under water was the most amazing experience. Watching the the fish swim together as group moving from one area to another, the seaweed moving along with the waves, going back and forth against the big rocks where people would sit on enjoying the nice hot weather. Being able to taste the salty water when the strong waves would hit against their body as people would shut their eyes avoiding the water to get in their eyes. As the sound of the......

...could assist him in bettering this economy. If the United States Navy agrees the building a base in Kava would increase the local economy greatly. The first way this would be done is with ships being permanently docked in the harbor area. With this it opens up many doors that may have been over looked before. With the ships being docked there when the sailors have leave they go on the island and eat, shop, go to bars, and stay in the local hotels. This gives local entrepreneurs a chance to open businesses to fit the needs of the Sailor’s. Once the locals have established businesses to attract tourists, the word will spread not only as a great Navy liberty port, but also a wonderful vacation spot. Second, when ships break down, need supplies before deployments, requires work to be done like rust chipping and painting, and many other civilian construction type expertise. With this many people now have Decisions in Paradise Page 3 jobs that did not exist before. Third, and finally the Navy is there to help in event of natural disasters.

...Decisions in Paradise Part 1 There is a list of problems that come with Kava. The natural disasters, health concerns, and the possible terrorism are just some of the problems that Kava experiences. The forces that influence the problems are mostly of nature, these cannot be controlled and many of times these disasters come without warning. Kava does see tourists and would like to have more to offer to the tourists when they come, but because this is an island in the south pacific tourists understand the potential risk of a natural disaster striking. When the natural disaster does strike families and even tourists are without a place to stay. With there being health problems in Kava many times families have to be away from home to be close to a sick child or loved one and there are no places for these families to stay while waiting for the sick person. Kava does not have much to offer but with help of a business that can give back and help bring the community together, Kava may have more to offer everyone. I work for McDonald's. We are a worldwide franchise fast-food restaurant providing people all over the world with quality food and customer service.

...Decisions in Paradise Kristin Hunter MGT 350/ Critical Thinking: Strategies in Decision Making Workshop 3 July 7, 2011 Joseph Celano Decisions in Paradise Upon arriving in Kava it was clear to me that in order for my company to establish a stronger presence I must first help Alex to become more organized within our office. In order to do that I believe we need to sit down together and establish a business plan. Due to the fact that part of this business plan will be the location of our hotel, I would like to become more familiar with the layout of the island first. Therefore, I would like to spend some additional time researching where the major danger zones for tsunamis, tidal waves, and active volcanoes lie. Additionally, the land may be prone to other natural disasters such as flooding in low lying areas or landslides, and I would certainly not want to build a hotel in an area where there is a chance of a landslide. We must then obtain information about commercial building permits being that we are in a land known for agricultural products such as coffee, spices, bananas, and rum, as there may be certain areas that are off limits. Once I become more familiar with all of these situations and limitations, I will better be able to work with the team on establishing a plan. In order for Pacifica Hotels to be successful in establishing ourselves on the Island of Kava we must first establish the desired outcome. The desired outcome is to run one, hopefully......

The company operated 46% of its hotel rooms under management agreements, 52% under franchise agreements. But, as compared to this, only 33.6% of the revenue in FY2009 were earned through franchising while 66.4% from own operation. The emphasis on management contracts and franchising although tends to provide more stable earnings in periods of economic softness, however does not provide much scope for revenue growth. c) Risk from emerging markets : 7) The economic and political instability in the developing country lead to the risk of Marriots operation including customer loyalty and reputation.

...Decisions in Paradise – Part 3 Student’s Name MGT350/Critical Thinking: Strategies in Decision Making Date Instructor Choice Hotels is a highly reputable, well established and prosperous luxury hotel chain located in the United States. The owner of the hotel chain has an interest in establishing a presence on the South Pacific tropical island of Kava. A few months ago, Nik was hired by Choice Hotels. His very first assignment was to fly to the tropical island of Kava and meet with Alex, the Director of Strategic Planning for Choice Hotels, to strategize and form a decision as to whether or not the idea to construct hotels on the island is a wise one for the hotel chain. A Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) and a Financial Justification were developed to determine if the potential negatives of building on the island outweighed the positives. The costs involved with building and furnishing the hotel, employee salaries, property insurance and the routine costs involved with maintaining the property were analyzed against the potential advantages. The owner of Choice Motels’ desire to make life better for the people of Kava by doing something to help revive the island’s economy was one of the most important factors in the deciding to build on the island. Building on Kava would provide Kava residents with job opportunities during the construction phase and then even more job opportunities once the hotel was open for business. Once tourists start returning to the island,......

...Decision in Paradise Part Three Russ Young MGT/350 July 27, 2011 University of Phoenix - Schaumburg Campus Ronald Korrub Abstract Far in the South Pacific Ocean there is an Island called Kava. This Island is not very big but the government of that island wanted to grow their tourist population, so they have called on Marriott Hotel Company to build a resort. Marriott CEO Bill Marriott has called me (Nik), Chris, and Alex in to his office to let us know about our latest project. When we reached Kava’s airport we meet with the Governor and he greeted us along with his staff. The governor appointed us with one of his assistants named John to show us around the Island so we can learn its history and also if we had any questions. Next my team and I looked into the economy of the Island and we found out that Kava is a poor country with despicable living arrangements in some parts of the island because over 50% of the population is under 15 years of age. In conclusion upon getting back home and Bill Marriott receiving our report along with my recommendation we are now finished building our five star resort on the Island of Kava.

Decisions in Paradise Part Ii

...Decisions in Paradise Part II Lisa M. Campbell MGT/350 December 19, 2011 Professor Rebecca Marek Decisions in Paradise Part II The decision to open a hotel on the island of Kava has been a challenge for owner Lisa Campbell. Decision-making and numerous situations are evaluated to ensure this decision-making will be best not only for the hotel but also that it will benefit the local islanders and the people who visit Kava temporarily. The Marriott Kava hotel is projected to be a medium size facility. The accommodations will ensure local islanders, patients receiving extended health care at the local cancer center, families, couples, and even business travelers will have a place to stay during their visit. The decision is if it will be more beneficial to build a standalone hotel in the middle of the island, merge the business with the local cancer center, or build the hotel near the airport ensuring it is near the new transit shuttle bus company. Building a standalone hotel ensures that if the tourism and visitor rate to the island increases the hotel will have no obligations and commitments to another company and able to focus on just providing space for guest of the hotel. The downside of this is that the business owner limits herself to other business opportunities if the standalone method is sought after. Business is based on the needs of living areas on a temporary basis. The developer that has come to the island to build housing projects for the...
