Sammy Carolus Appointed General Manager of 853-Room Grand Hyatt Taipei

Sammy Carolus has been appointed General Manager of the 853-room Grand Hyatt Taipei.

Previously General Manager of the Hyatt Regency Hua Hin and The Barai in Thailand, Sammy has relocated to Taipei with more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry.

He started as a sales executive with Hyatt Bali in his home country of Indonesia in 1992 and later served as associate director of business development and director of business development at Grand Hyatt Bali.

In 2003, Sammy became director of marketing for Hyatt Regency Hua Hin. A year later, he was transferred to Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, where he helped launch several first-of-its-kind initiatives in the region, including the first residential-style event facility in the Asia Pacific region and Bangkoks first residential spa. He was promoted to executive assistant manager of sales and marketing at Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok in 2009.

Sammy took on his first general manager role in 2010, when he was selected to lead Hyatt Regency Hua Hin in the Gulf of Thailand.

Taipei is one of Asias most alluring destinations, Carolus said. With its amazing landscapes, irresistible culinary scene, world class museums and friendly people, I cant think of a more inviting gateway to a continent.

Last April, Grand Hyatt Taipei celebrated its 25th anniversary with a grand relaunch party after a top-to-toe renovation of all rooms and suites. Beyond the rooms, the hotel redesigned its Club Lounge, and opened two completely new restaurants, Yun Jin and Caf. The hotel is planning another major restaurant opening, The Steakhouse, later this year.
