A seasoned professional with two decades of luxury hospitality experience across Europe, North America and Asia has been appointed to the helm of the new nautical-themed beachfront resort Meliá Koh Samui.
Spanish-born Ernesto Osuna has taken charge of the opening of the 159-room and 31-suite luxury resort overlooking Choeng Mon Beach, on Koh Samui’s north-eastern coastline in the Gulf of Thailand. He has worked for Meliá Hotels International for seven years and was previously a cluster general manager for two Meliá properties in Zhengzhou, China; Gran Melia Zhengzhou and INNSIDE Zhengzhou. He also oversaw the 2015 opening of Meliá Danang in Vietnam after he was the general manager of Meliá Buenavista in Cuba.
The property celebrated its grand opening on 10 January, unveiling a host of world-class facilities. “Ernesto has been with Meliá Hotels International for seven years and has been a general manager at hotels and resorts in six different countries,” said Bernardo Cabot, senior vice president in Asia Pacific at Meliá Hotels International.
