Graham’s preceding post was General Manager at one of India’s legends of luxury, The Leela Palace Udaipur, Rajasthan, where he focused not only on operations and customer satisfaction but also on growth strategies.
Previous to Udaipur, Graham worked at some of the most iconic luxury resorts in his native Australia – Hayman, Great Barrier Reef in the spectacular Whitsunday Islands, opening the world’s first Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast, Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas Resort in the jungles of Far North Queensland, and Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove.
His two-decade career in luxury hospitality also includes a stint in Scotland, at the Sheraton Grand Resort & Spa, Edinburgh.
As well as managing Soneva Kiri, Graham’s first order of business is to oversee operations of the resort’s recently-introduced fleet of private planes and to launch a new Soneva excursion direct from Koh Kood to Siem Reap, Cambodia, where the World Heritage wonders of Angkor Wat await. In keeping with Soneva values, Graham shares the Group’s passion for wellness, healthy food and a happy multicultural environment.
Graham is looking forward to adopting Soneva’s SLOW LIFE mantra and has set his watch to Soneva time.
