Andy Pesky – Senior Vice President – Protravel - USA
I’m writing with regard to Patrice Van Isacker with whom I’ve worked with for several years while he was with Canouan Resort, Pink Sands Club and La Samanna. Patrice is someone that I would be very proud to endorse to any hotelier. He knows his product well, but more importantly, he is reachable and he is what I would term a ‘problem-solver.’ I’ve come to him on many occasions with difficult situations and he’s never once let us down. Patrice is someone who can represent any hotel at the highest level and with that I can only say that I have the highest regard. I am readily available either by email or telephone. You cannot go wrong having Patrice represent your product as his representation company is excellent.
Owner of Calabash
I have been fortunate to be with Patrice on lots of occasions when we travelled together on sales calls to various Tour Operators and Travel Agencies, promoting our properties in the Caribbean. Patrice is well known to so many travel people and he is always welcomed warmly by all sales staff, so he has been instrumental in opening lot of opportunities for me. When working on presentations he is the best I have witnessed and compulsive viewing, grabbing and keeping participant’s attention and closing sales opportunities in a charming manner.
Patrice has a wonderful well-earned reputation, offers good advice, works hard always in an intelligent thoughtful manner and is a joy to work with. Please contact me for any further details, if needed. (Leo@calabashgrenada.com).
ITC Luxury Travel Group
“ITC Luxury Travel has worked with Patrice Van Isacker for over 10 years, most notably in his role as the UK “face” of Raffles Canouan & Pink Sands Club but also when he has been involved with other consultancy projects. Throughout that time, he always showed a real passion for driving sales to the resorts that he represented. He was supportive to our sales team in terms of training, incentives and rewards and if they ever needed assistance in closing a deal to confirm a reservation. He also worked in partnership with us to host both travel agent and client events, including a Gala Award Dinner at Raffles Canouan for our 40 top travel agents and more recently a preview showing of Pink Sands Club to some of our top clients who were in the Grenadines on a private cruise charter.”

Patrice is an amazing people person and excels at building relationships both personally and professionally. He has exceptional knowledge of the Travel Industry and loves a challenge! Patrice is a highly motivated sales professional with more enthusiasm and passion than anyone I've come across, while remaining a pleasure to deal with, extremely easy going, cordial but assertive when needs to be. Committed, proactive, knowledgeable, reliable, fast-paced and always delivers!
Patrice has a ‘can do attitude’ and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I have worked with Patrice for over 10 years and he is a pleasure to work with, extremely commercial and completely understands the UK luxury travel sector. He is professional, kind, genuine, and extremely well connected. Patrice totally “gets” our business and the way in which we work, which is the reason we have always had such a great working relationship that has benefited our mutual business. He engages with all our staff and is liked my everyone that he meets.
Patrice is a committed and passionate individual. His loyalty and belief in a product has earned him a highly respected reputation within the travel industry. A congenial individual, his hunger for success precedes him. It has been a pleasure to work with Patrice and look forward to supporting him in future endeavors.
Geoff Moss – Founder Elegant Resorts - UK
As founder of Elegant Resorts I have met most Director of Sales/Representatives over the years. Patrice is probably the most enthusiastic and was well loved and appreciated by the girls in the Reservation Centre. He did not just concentrate his efforts on management but where the real sales efforts were happening! I have subsequently worked with Patrice off and on for a few years and find him to be one of the best in the business. A hard worker. Any further information then please do not hesitate to contact me personally. (Geoff.firstname.lastname@example.org)
Being the President and CEO of Carenage Bay Holding Ltd, company that fully owns Canouan Resort, I have worked with Patrice Van Isacker on and off since 2004 developing the island of Canouan through multiple phases. Patrice has shown great enthusiasm and dedication in the making a success of Canouan. Over the years, I have personally heard how much the travel industry appreciated him on a personal and professional level. We have had many changes in Canouan but as soon as he opened the European market during Raffles’ management, revenues quadrupled from Europe. He is the only sales person that stayed with us during difficult times, and his belief in Canouan’s potential was very much appreciated. I cannot recommend him enough as he has an excellent UK and European Representation
