BANGKOK, 23 February 2018: Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has appointed Simon Dell as general manager of the group’s newest resort in Hua Hin.
Mövenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin is due to open this April.
It’s Hua Hin’s latest property to be managed by an international hotel, but it will face tough competition in a market that is now awash with five-star rooms.
He will head the opening team that is putting the finishing touches to a resort property with 54 pool villas and 42 suites.
A UK national, Dell has worked with leading hotel brands, such as InterContinental, Raffles, Swissôtel, The Savoy Group and Mandarin Oriental.
In Thailand he worked for the Thai hospitality firm Amari Hotels and Resorts, which was restructured and rebranded the Onyx Hospitality Group.
