Opened in December 2021, this modern design-inspired luxury resort has recently been named the global winner of Robb Report Best of the Best Awards - The Best In Travel for Island Getaway.

With over two decades of rich experience and leadership in luxury hospitality and wellbeing, Vastolo aims to elevate the luxury positioning of the resort by focusing strongly on the curation of uniquely personalised experiences that celebrate life.

Prior, he held the position as General Manager at Kempinski Summerland Hotel & Resort in Lebanon, and as Group Director of Operations at Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts, EMEA, based in Dubai for seven years.

Vastolo’s passion and dynamic approach towards innovation and change had also seen him leading teams within the Shangri-La group as General Manager globally, spanning from Fiji, Boracay in the Philippines, Long Island in Seychelles to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Ashish Modak, Chief Operating Officer, EMEA of The Lux Collective said, “From the day we decided to build LUX* Grand Baie, we have set our positioning and standards high as the best luxury resort in Mauritius. Vastolo has proven track record across multi-property portfolios and success in managing luxury lifestyle hotels, brand development, and hotel and restaurant openings. We are confident that under his strong leadership, LUX* Grand Baie will continue to emerge as a leading world-class luxury resort and wellness destination.”

After his studies at the School of Hotel Management in Napoli, Italy, Vastolo achieved his diploma in Hospitality Administration and Management from Cornell University’s General Manager Programme.

An Italian national, he is fluent in French, English and his mother tongue. Out of office, he spends time with his wife and four daughters. In addition to adrenaline-charged motorbiking, he enjoys playing golf, exercising and meditation.
