French hotelier, Brice Borin, has been appointed as General Manager of The Regent Phuket.

Mr Borin, 44, began his hospitality career in 1984 as an apprentice chef in his home town of Lot, in France. He subsequently cooked around the world, from Louisiana in the United States to Bermuda, where he earned a Food & Beverage Management Diploma, and Sydney before arriving in Thailand in 1993, joining Novotel in Bangkok as Executive Chef.

Subsequent Executive Chef appointments were with Sofitel in Vietnam, Dusit in Koh Samui, and Le Meridien in Lithuania and Jakarta.

In 2002 he switched into hotel management, in Food & Beverage Director roles at Park Plaza in Kuala Lumpur and Evason Resort in Hua Hin, where he retains a home.

His first appointment managing a hotel was at the award winning private island Le Tahaa in French Polynesia.

He joined Anantara in 2005, initially managing a Maldives resort and subsequently transferring to the groups property in Hua Hin. He joined Regent in 2008, as General Manager overseeing the pre-opening of The Regent, Maldives.

Married with one child, Mr Borin is a member of the French Chaine des Rtisseurs and was a former chairman of Samui Culinary Circle, developing improved F&B standards on the island.

The Regent Phuket is at Cape Panwa, on the south-eastern tip of the island. It came under the Regent branding umbrella in late 2010. A boutique-style resort, it features just 70 rooms with sea views and 35 Club Suites with private pools.

Two other new Regent hotels are also opening in Asia in 2011, the Regent Bali and Regent Maldives.

The iconic Regent brand was last year acquired by Taiwanese entrepreneur Steven Pan, Chairman and CEO of Formosa International Hotels Corporation.
