Caravelle Saigon, one of Vietnam’s most historic properties, has named Michael Robinson as new Director of Rooms, in time for the second stage of the enhancement project to come later this year.
Robinson brings nearly a decade of experience to his new role at the 335-room Caravelle Saigon in downtown Ho Chi Minh City.
Michael honed his skills in the rooms divisions of five-star hotels in destinations as diverse as California, Dubai, Qatar and comes to Caravelle fresh off his most recent post as Front Office Manager for the Park Hyatt Dubai in the UAE, Michael received his hospitality training completing a Bachelor’s Degree at the International College of Hotel Management in Adelaide, and also holds a Diploma in International Hotel Management from the Swiss Hotel Association and a Diplôme Culinaire d’Hôtelier from Le Cordon Bleu École de Cuisine.
He got his start in hospitality in 2007 as an F&B supervisor, and by 2008 was working as a Management Trainee in the rooms division at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla, California. The following year he relocated to the Middle East to accept the role of Assistant Front Office Manager at the Grand Hyatt Doha, where he was also part of the pre-opening task force spearheading the launch of Hyatt properties in Russia and South Africa, before moving to Dubai in 2011.
“We’re incredibly lucky to have such a talented new addition to the team, especially at this crucial moment in the hotel’s history,” said John Gardner, Caravelle’s General Manager. “With Michael at the helm of our rooms division and the improvements soon to come, we’re truly excited about the future of Caravelle’s guest experience.”
