A small dive operation in the Solomon Islands has been shortlisted for the 2016 Luxury Travel Guide Global Awards.
Dive Munda is in the country's Western Province which is home to world class reef, wreck and wall diving.
It was initially nominated by guests and vetted by the Luxury Travel Guide team based on elements such as service excellence, local knowledge, employee satisfaction and cultural understanding and diversity.
Owner operator Belinda Botha said the nomination came as a pleasant surprise and was a real testament of what could be achieved with a small dedicated staff fully focused on guests needs.
"It means to us that people notice if you really truly are focused on guest services people notice that you do make a difference. I am the only expat here, all of my people working for me are people from Munda. I think it would mean phenomenal amount to them as well knowing that somebody has noticed the hardwork and the effort and the passion that they have for this business."
Ms Botha said Dive Munda has been entered in the Asia & Australasia category with results to be announced next month.
