Exclusive colonial-styled beachfront resort, The Anam, is continuing to set new standards in luxurious hospitality in Vietnam with the unveiling of a distinguished and high-profile team led by legendary hotelier Duncan MacLean.
With over 40 years in hotels, 20 of which have been with pioneering, luxury projects in Asia, Mr MacLean takes the reins at The Anam in the role of General Manager having assembled a dream team to take the property to the top of the fast growing luxury sector in Vietnam’s key resort destinations.
Mr MacLean’s career started in 1975 with InterContinental Hotel Group in the UK, moving 10 years later to Australia with Hilton International. He was one of the first hoteliers to work in Myanmar after the first national elections where he spent a further 10 years before working in the hot spots of Kabul and East Timor.
He then moved to Vietnam where he has lived for the past decade, with achievements including establishing Furama Danang as one of Vietnam’s most iconic hotels before taking the leadership role at The Anam.
Joining Mr Maclean is Martin Koerner as Director of Sales and Marketing, formerly from the board of directors of leading Asia-wide hospitality consortium HG Holdings, Ms Thi Vo Hoai Thi as Assistant Director of Sales and Marketing who previously worked with InterContinental Hotel Group and Six Senses Group, and Ms Nguyen Thi Lien previously with five-star Amiana Resort Nha Trang as Reservations and Yield Manager.
“After four decades in the hotel industry I can truly say this destination and this property are poised to achieve something very special,” said Mr MacLean. “The all-villa resort is in an incredible beachfront location on the Northern Cam Ranh Peninsula, the product itself is first class, combining colonial charm, service and style – and the team is strong and dynamic.”
The Anam soft opened in Q3 of this year, offering a 40% discount until 20th December when it is set to be fully operational with all facilities and services.
