Peter Neto has been appointed as General Manager
of the Fusion Resort Phu Quoc, an all-spa inclusive resort on
Vietnam's largest island.
The Portuguese-national moves back to Phu
Quoc after being General Manager of The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort
in Malaysia. Neto, who grew up in Canada, was in charge of the
Cassia Cottage Resort on Phu Quoc from 2016 to 2017.
“I always felt that the native Phu Quoc
residents and Vietnamese workers from the mainland, along with
people from overseas, myself included, formed a special bond on
the island,” said Neto. “It’s still a small community and we are
all working together towards making Phu Quoc an island destination
that will be renowned around the world.”
it’s not just a return to the island - it’s a return to the hotel
group. From 2014 to 2015 he was GM of Alma Oasis Long Hai, then a
Fusion-managed seaside property near Ho Chi Minh (Saigon).
“I rejoined Fusion because my philosophy as a hotelier is in
line with that of the company,” Neto said. “Having lived in Phu
Quoc just two years ago, and witnessing the ‘birth’ of Fusion
Resort Phu Quoc, I felt this was one property I wanted to take to
the next level with the amazing team we have onboard.”
Neto’s career in hospitality began over 20 years ago, having
started out as a guest services manager in Canada before taking on
key roles in housekeeping and front-of-house & rooms in the UK,
Bahrain, and in various countries throughout Asia with groups such
as Rocco Forte Hotels and Ritz-Carlton.
Between 2011 and 2013, Neto managed Tanjong Jara Resort and Gaya Island Resort for YTL
Hotels in Malaysia.
