Malaysian pharmacist Tang San San won the all-expenses-paid, two-week vacation to Summer Island Maldives - the prize announced by the resort, designed especially for frontline workers fighting in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The prize includes two weeks of accommodation in a water villa for two adults, covers the cost of international flights, return transfer to the resort, contains all-inclusive meals and drinks, two spa treatments, a special beach dinner, a sandbank excursion, a sunset cruise and selected water sports activities.
"I would like to thank Summer Island Maldives and Kaimoo group for this amazing surprise", the Tang San San said.
"I was over the moon when I found out that I had won this amazing giveaway. It will be my first time going to the Maldives and I am really excited".
According to the resort, Tang San San was chosen as the winner at random, after being nominated by her friend on the social media application Instagram.
Summer Island's parent company, Kaimoo Resorts & Hotels, announced the prize in July, as a token of appreciation for employees who put their lives at risk on the frontlines of the health crisis.
Front line workers from around the world were eligible to apply for the giveaway, or be nominated by friends. To apply or nominate a person, Instagram users had to follow Summer Island Maldives and tag the individual they wanted to nominate.
The resort revealed that Tang San San was chosen from over 1300 people who applied or were nominated for the prize.
