SALA Phuket Resort and Spa has appointed a new general manager, executive chef, and food & beverage manager.
The role of general manager is a homecoming for Anthony Van Sleeuwen, who in his previous tenure with SALA Hospitality Group opened SALA Phuket as executive assistant manager in 2007 and later became resident manager. Most recently, Anthony was general manager of The Kanda Residence on Koh Samui, and before that the Australian national led the sales and marketing team at Fusion MAIA Resort in Danang, Vietnam.
“I am thrilled to be rejoining SALA again, especially at SALA Phuket. The team there is very strong and it brings back so many fond memories for me”, said Anthony. Joining Anthony is another familiar face to the SALA team, executive chef Tony Wrigley, who has been transferred from his role as regional executive chef – sala boutique, where he oversaw the culinary operations for Sala Rattanakosin, Sala Khao Yai, and Sala Ayutthaya for the last five years.
Working with chef Tony to ensure Sala Phuket Resort and Spa’s gastronomic offerings are of the highest standards is the new food & beverage manager Basil Scheerer. Basil joins the team from the Pullman Khaolak-Phang Nga, where he was responsible for the management and operation of all the hotel’s restaurants and bars.
