The move comes as Thailand has lifted quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated tourists from over 60 countries and territories, effective 1 November.

With more than 20 years’ experience in hospitality, Mr Oddy has worked in small cafes, fine-dining restaurants, beach clubs, bars, resorts, private catering events and restaurant consulting. His career has spanned three continents and a pandemic during which he started a successful home bakery.

Mr Joerg Hontheim will take the role of Area Director of Food and Beverage, Thailand, based in Phuket. A German national, Hontheim is a Certified Master Chef. He holds a bachelor’s degree in hospitality and various certifications, including revenue management from Cornell University.

He has held various positions with Marriott, Ritz Carlton, Renaissance and Grand Hyatt throughout Asia and the United States.

We are particularly excited for our guests to enjoy the resort’s private plunge-pool suites, split-level rooms and our new surf-inspired Nalu Bar & Grill. Altogether, we will be offering guests an idyllic blend of seaside living with an urban city vibe,” he said.
