(PREGAS) Pierre Stacher is launching a five-star beach resort. Pierre Stacher, a Swiss native with additional Australian nationality and an internationally successful manager for many years, is responsible as General Manager for all aspects of the completion and opening of Kempinski's first resort in the Seychelles, the Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare. The five-star luxury resort on the main island of Mahé, only 30 minutes from the international airport of the capital Victoria, is scheduled to open before the end of the year. 144 top-designed rooms and six suites, some of which have a breathtaking view of the Indian Ocean, will then await the first guests.
Pierre Stacher can look back on an extremely successful career in the hotel industry, which began in 1967 at the Beau-Rivage Palace, Lausanne, at the same time as he attended the Ecole Hôtelèrie de Lausanne. After various stages of professional development around the world, particularly in Hong Kong as Marketing Director Asia Pacific for Hyatt, the then 39-year-old took over the management of a hotel for the first time in 1985: as General Manager in Bali Hyatt. At the same time, he was partly responsible for the Hyatt Regency Perth in Australia. This was followed by positions in Seoul, Bangkok, Cairo, Basel, Zurich and Sydney as well as at the Hayman Island Resort on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, before the experienced manager joined Kempinski Hotels. His first task at the oldest luxury hotel group was the positioning and opening of the Kempinski Hotel Adriatic Istria in Croatia at the end of 2009.
