Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi, a luxury resort set in the North Shaviyani Atoll, has announced two key appointments within its management team; Andrew Steele as general manager and Lawrence Tuck as hotel manager.
With over twenty years of experience in the luxury hospitality industry, Steele has worked with some of the world’s most reputable brands – from Le Meridian and Mandarin Oriental to Shangri-La. He joins Fairmont Maldives from Potato Head Bali which, as group managing director, he transformed into a globally recognised sustainable lifestyle hospitality brand, mobilising the company to become the first hospitality brand in Indonesia to be carbon neutral and opening the first zero-waste restaurant in the region. He has been recognised as one of twenty international hoteliers on 100 Best Luxury Hotels by Luxury Hunt 2019.
Tuck joins Fairmont Maldives from Pueblo Bonito Pacifica in Cabo San Lucas Mexico, with over 15 years of experience in the luxury hospitality industry. From Four Seasons and Intercontinental to Fairmont properties in Canada and Mexico, he has worked as an executive chef, director of food and beverage and GM, bringing a breadth of experience across key departments to his role as Fairmont Maldives’ hotel manager.
The two new positions come ahead of an exciting year for the five-star resort, with the launch of the Fairmont Fit programme and new underwater sculptures within the Coralarium – an underwater art gallery and pioneering coral regeneration project.
