As the General Manager I have been responsible for the opening of this Boutique Hotel with 100 rooms constructed over 2 phases, containing 8 Food & Beverage outlets and the largest Casino in the region.
As the Hotel is not chain affiliated, it gave me the opportunity to open a Hotel from scratch, including but not limited too; construction, design, outlet development, Sales & Marketing strategy, development of corporate identity and establishing operational procedures as per international standards.
“Our hotel was located within meters of the Egyptian/Israeli border and originally built as a shopping mall. Mr. Brekelmans was chosen as GM because of his proven track record in hotel management, his skills in setting up and applying new procedures and for his positive ‘can achieve’ attitude.”
“He recruited staff for all departments, wrote detailed procedures, and created a corporate identity. Despite setbacks, Mr. Brekelmans has achieved a large proportion of what he set out to do. Within the tight constraints on this project, he attained a high standard.“
