Didier Tourneboeuf has been appointed General
Manager of Qasr Al Sarab, the new Anantara Resort & Spa, in Abu
Dhabi’s Liwa Desert.
Didier joins Qasr Al Sarab from his
position as General Manager of Le Royal Méridien, Abu Dhabi.
Didier, a French national,
has a very strong background in hotel openings having worked as
part of the launch teams at Méridien hotels in Australia, the US,
China, Thailand, Indonesia and Cambodia.
Didier is a graduate of the
renowned Strasbourg Hotel School in Switzerland and is married
with a grown-up son.
Qasr Al Sarab is located in the renowned Empty Quarter – a vast expanse of
towering sand dunes stretching from the southern reaches of the
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia into Oman and the UAE. The hotel’s
design will reflect the simple grandeur of an old desert fortress.
The hotel is slated to open in late October.
Rajakarier, Chief Operating Officer of Minor Hotel Group, the
owners of Anantara, said, “We are delighted that Didier has joined
the Anantara team. His background in hotel openings is
second to none and his experience of the UAE market will
be a great asset to us as we move towards our second
launch in Abu Dhabi, following the successful opening of
the Desert Islands Resort & Spa in October last year.”
