It is exciting to hear news once again from another highly anticipated upcoming property, the Raffles Praslin, that is located on Anse Takamaka on Praslin Island.
It is expected to open in early 2011, and the place is looking fantastic already! It will soon boast of 86 large and luxurious villas, numerous dining options, a divine spa, a range of leisure activities, retail area, extensive children and family friendly programs. It is therefore perfect for people looking to live in a relaxed, safe and well organized location with all their basic and luxury needs catered to with the Raffles “signature heartfelt service standards.”
Heading this new resort is the newly appointed General Manager, Mr. Olivier Heuchenne, who brings into the place 19 years of professional experience in the luxury hospitality industry. The Belgian national is fluent in French, English, Spanish and Greek, and was previously working at The Address and The Palace, The Old Town in Dubai, also as the GM.
“Over a period of 18 years, he has also held senior positions at numerous The Ritz Carlton properties in Egypt, Dubai, Doha, Mexico, Hawaii, California, Philadelphia, Hong Kong and Singapore in both Operations and Food and Beverage management.” We extend a warm welcome to Mr. Heuchenne and can’t wait for the official opening of Raffles Praslin!
