Lodge Managers Ben and Louise Lanyon Head to Longitude 131

November 28, 2018 Appointments / Movers & Shakers No Comments Email Email

Baillie Lodges has announced husband-and-wife lodge managers Ben and Louise Lanyon will return to the company to head up operations at Longitude 131° at Uluru-Kata Tjuta.

The Lanyons jointly managed sister property Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island from its opening in 2008 until 2012. Their first son, Bosco, was born during their stint at the award-winning South Australian lodge.

Now with two more sons, Cassius and Hendrix, Ben and Louise will relocate their family to the Red Centre in January 2019 for a handover with current lodge manager Adrian Levy.

The Lanyons come to Longitude 131° with extensive experience in managing some of Australia’s most celebrated luxury lodges, often in remote locations. Their high-end hospitality experience includes a stint as Lodge Managers at Spicers Peak Lodge, as Hosts at Wilson Island and as part of the pre-opening team of the former Wrotham Park Lodge in Far North Queensland.

Most recently Ben and Louise have spent time as owner-operators of their restaurant, The McGregor Terrace Food Project at Stanthorpe in Queensland. Ben is a talented chef and has and has also spent time as the Queensland College of Wine Tourism executive chef and hospitality training manager.

Baillie Lodges Managing Director James Baillie said he was delighted to welcome Ben and Louise – and their family – back to the close-knit team.

‘Hayley and I are thrilled to have Ben and Louise and the Lanyon boys back in the Baillie Lodges fold, it’s really like an extended family,” Mr Baillie said.

‘Many of the Baillie Lodges team has worked with Ben and Louise during their time at Southern Ocean Lodge and they are very well-regarded both by the team as well as by guests and our trade partners for their calm, friendly and passionate approach to managing remote luxury lodges. We think they’ll make the most of their family time in the outback’
