The Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui has appointed Lubosh Barta as General Manager.

 Barta is no stranger to the palm-fringed beaches of the beautiful island of Samui in southern Thailand, having been Resort Manager of Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui since December 2010.

Koh Samui is the third stop on Bartas tour of Thailand, having started his Thai adventure in 2004 in the dynamic capital as Director of Food & Beverage at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok. His journey next took him north, to the peaceful green rice fields of Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, where he served as Resort Manager from 2007 to 2010.

Although he originally embarked on a career as a professional ice hockey player in his native Czech Republic, Barta soon felt the pull of the hospitality industry. Although ice hockey and hotels may seem worlds apart, Barta sees some connection. There are definitely similarities between working in hotels and playing team sports. You are working with and alongside other people with the aim of meeting the same goal and without those key players on your team, there would be no game.

Since graduating hotel management school, Barta's career has taken him from the Czech Republic to Germany, Australia and the United Arab Emirates, before landing him in Thailand in 2004.

Koh Samui has been home to Barta and his family since December 2010, and he admits that even now, he is still overwhelmed by its beauty every day. When he's not working at the resort, he likes to take time out to discover the hidden parts of the island, venturing into the undeveloped mountains in the interior, or looking for the perfect, undiscovered sunset spot.
