Formerly the general manager of The Dorchester and regional director, UK, for Dorchester Collection, Roland Fasel, has over 25 years of experience within the luxury hospitality industry.

He has opened, renovated and repositioned hotels across three continents and is a graduate from Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne in his native Switzerland. At Aman, Fasel will oversee all facets of Aman’s ihotel, resort and private residence operations and will help define the future vision and strategy. Fasel will work closely with chairman, Vladislav Doronin, to develop the brand. 

What made you move to Aman?

Aman, with its pioneering spirit and uncompromisingly bespoke approach, has always been a brand that I have admired. I am looking forward to leading the team and steering the brand as it continues its gentle evolution and enters into its third decade.

What are your priorities?

The continued integration of Aman Wellness, the forthcoming introduction of a new culinary concept and a robust pipeline of development projects are all high on my agenda. However, maintaining an ever-closer connection with our guests and continuing to enrich their experience remains the number one priority and is something that Vladislav Doronin places great emphasis on.
