Thanyapura Phuket Appoints Alexandra Lochmatter as Director of Sports

Thanyapura Phuket has appointed Alexandra Lochmatter as Director of Sports.

Ms Lochmatter, who will be responsible for running and administrating Thanyapura's extensive sports facilities, was headhunted by four-time triathlon world champion Chris McCormack following her success as Group and Events Manager at the Playitas Resort in Spain.

Ms Lochmatter said, "I am delighted to be joining the Thanyapura team. My experience at Playitas will help me here in Phuket, as I already know the activities and work they do here well. I am excited to help our guests along the way, whether they are elite athletes, beginners looking for active holidays or active families who want to combine their holidays with sports activities. I am very much looking forward to leading the sports programmes and to developing Thanyapura as the major sports hub in Asia."

Prior to joining the Playitas Resort Ms Lochmatter worked in a number of posts in the travel and leisure industry and has also a strong sales and marketing background.

She has a Bachelors Degree in Tourism and is fluent in several European languages.

Thanyapura President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Philipp Graf von Hardenberg, said, "We keep going from strength to strength here at Thanyapura, and we are very pleased we have Alexandra joining us, who is very experienced and professional in this field. Alexandra will bring a new level of energy and expertise that will help to benefit Thanyapura. She will help us reach our goals and assist guests and sportspeople from all walks of life."

Thanyapura Phuket, a 23-hectare luxury sports, health and lifestyle resort in Phuket, has two hotels - the 77-room Pool Wing and a more tranquil, 38-room boutique Garden Wing.

Sporting and health facilities include three swimming pools, six tennis courts, a football/rugby field, cushioned running tracks, two performance gyms and fitness studios.
