Laura Bracegirdle, Sales Program Leader – Seek
We were a small group but we packed a punch with everything we squeezed into our fabulous Noumea incentive trip. Le Meridien Noumea was a perfect option – offering beautiful rooms and great onsite facilities. We had excellent offsite functions at Le Roof and Chai de l’Hippodrome but the highlight for the group was the sailing regatta to Ilot Signal – the day couldn’t have been more perfect, many didn’t want to go home! Newcal Events beautifully executed all of our activities with particular mention to the ‘Taste of France’ tour and the half day spent on Duck Island snorkelling and learning to paddle board. Bliss….

We were a large conference with over 100 attendees, many of whom had not visited Noumea in the past but thoroughly enjoyed it. We held the conference at the Chateau Royal which offered great meeting spaces with beautiful views and the apartment-style accommodation worked perfectly, particularly for the family groups. The highlight for the overall group was definitely the day trip to Amedee Island – it’s a ‘well oiled machine’ providing our group with great service, activities, and food – highly recommended. We had two off-site dinners – Duck Island and Le 1881. Both functions were memorable. Le 1881 provided excellent service and food and they also organised a band to complete the great party atmosphere.

Although being only 2.5 hours from Sydney, New Caledonia provides an outstandingly beautiful and different destination. We have achieved great success with our incentive programs and food and wine tours. When compared with other South Pacific destinations the unique offer of New Caledonia, is of a cultural nature – it’s superb Frenchness!
