About me

My experience is based on working at luxury resorts such as Kempinski and St. Regis which gave me the chance to know how to exceed guests’ expectations.


I would also like to add that I have a good experience in UAE hospitality and know how to handle that market and to build a strong communications with our guest's.


I am always working hard to maximize hotel revenue and get the higher ADR to achieve and exceed our budget.


I have enough experience on running operations with staff shortage or limited tools without affecting on our guests’ satisfaction. And I have also managed running full teams of butlers, receptionists, operators, concierge, valets and drivers.
