The AliiHost® Program is a training course that helps on improving customer services and direct interaction with tourists in hopes of maintaining the stable conditions of Palau’s tourism industry. With the help of WorldHost, AliiHost® continues to teach the fundamental and basic skills in customer service and trains its attendants to be the best possible host that their respective businesses can offer.
