Four Seasons Resort Seychelles has appointed Marcel Oostenbrink as Resort Manager, with him transferring in the same position that he most recently held at Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh.
Arriving to his new office in the treetop villas of Petite Anse bay, Oostenbrink will oversee the daily management of the Resort’s 67 luxurious tree-house style villas, 27 Private Residences, four restaurants and bars and an award-winning hilltop Spa.
In the run up to his re-location to Seychelles, Oostenbrink spent three months assisting at fellow Indian Ocean property, Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita. This short-term assignment marked a return to the region for Oostenbrink, who is no stranger to Seychelles, having spent two years working on the island from 2009 to 2011 as director of food and beverage at another of the island’s five star resorts.
Since departing Seychelles in 2011, Oostenbrink’s career has taken him across three different countries – first on a promotion to resort manager in the United Arab Emirates, then to Vietnam to lead a property in its transition period between two general managers, before then joining the Four Seasons family in 2014 as Resort Manager in Sharm El Sheikh.
General Manager Adrian Messerli comments: “With such rich resort and island experience, I am thrilled to be welcoming Marcel to our team. His attention to detail and passion for hospitality will ensure that we continue to deliver an exceptional guest experience and that our Resort will continue to move from strength to strength.”
