Simon Dell Joins Mövenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin as General Manager

The Mövenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin has appointed Simon Dell as General Manager.

 Simon has over 20 years of experience working in the hospitality industry, the last ten of which have been in Asia Pacific with several of those based in Thailand.

“We are delighted to welcome Simon to Mövenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin, which is one of the most exciting new properties in our Asian portfolio," said Mark Willis, President, Asia, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. "His vast experience and knowledge of Thailand’s hotel industry will be of great benefit to the property as it prepares to welcome its first guests.”

A UK national and graduate of both the Institut Hôtelier César Ritz in Switzerland and Johnson & Wales University, USA, Simon has worked with some of the world’s leading hotel brands, including InterContinental, Raffles, Swissôtel, The Savoy Group and Mandarin Oriental.

He moved to Asia in 2007, initially as Director of Rooms at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong. A year later he travelled to Thailand to start a career with Thai hospitality firm Amari Hotels & Resorts, which is now part of the Onyx Hospitality Group. He took on his first General Manager role in 2009 when he was selected to manage two Thai resorts, Amari Vogue Krabi and Vogue Resort & Spa Ao Nang.

After leading the pre-opening team of Amari Hua Hin as GM in 2011, Simon was then promoted to Vice President & Area GM for Onyx North Asia, responsible for multiple properties across China – a role he held before joining Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

“I am excited to be leading the Mövenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin pre-opening team, a property managed by a proven international brand in one of Thailand’s fastest growing beach destinations,“ said Simon. “As a permanent resident of Hua Hin, I see the destination from a local perspective and understand its tourism potential. I know Hua Hin intimately and look forward to sharing my recommendations and insights on its hidden gems with our guests.”

The Mövenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin is just a few minutes from the centre of Hua Hin and about a 2.5-hour drive from Bangkok. When it opens this spring, the hotel will offer 54 pool villas and 42 suites.
