Anticipating a January 2010 Grand Opening, the Life Resorts Management company has selected a team of seasoned general managers to spearhead the launch of the Life Resort Danang.

The two managers - Michelle Ford and Cyrille Stegmann, both from South Africa - previously worked as the general management team at the Life Wellness Resort Quy Nhon.

After studying hotel management in South Africa, Michelle Ford embarked upon a management career in Africa, the Middle East, United Kingdom and Asia. At the Raffles Spa Academy, she studied spa management and later managed a groups of spas in Asia.

Cyrille Stegmann earned a degree in hospitality management with the prestigious César Ritz Hospitality Management School in Switzerland before moving on to work in top hotels and resorts in America, United Arab Emirates, Africa, Europe and Asia. His career spans hospitality postings in both city and remote locations. He has specialized in pre-openings. 

 The 187-room Life Resort Danang is under development by Hoang Tra Travel and Trading Co. and will be managed by Life Resorts.

“With Michelle and Cyrille, we’ve tapped the resources of a team who already know what it means to manage a beach resort in Vietnam,” said Chris Duffy, general director of Life Resorts Management. “They’ll be making all the particular decisions that spell the difference between an informed launch and an uninformed launch.”

The resort’s initial design calls for innovative food & beverage outlets, including a 250-seat restaurant featuring an East-meets-West show kitchen and a lobby bar with a panoramic ocean view. The resort’s international conference, meeting and banqueting facilities can accommodate functions of any scale, from small planning sessions to elaborate conferences for up to 750 people. Facilities include a day spa, a fully equipped fitness center and tennis courts.

Two low rise hotel buildings will house most of the resort’s rooms, including 17 suites. Eleven stand-alone villas will flank one side of a long pool corridor splicing the middle of the resort.

The new Life property boasts proximity to three UNESCO World Heritage sites — Hoi An (15km), Hue (90km distant) and My Son (40 km), the former colonial French hill stations at Bach Ma and Ba Na, the Marble Mountains, Son Tra Peninsula, Lang Co and the Hai Van Headlands.
