Outrigger Resorts Appoints Marc Landgraf as GM in Koh Samui

Landgraf has over 30 years’ hotel industry experience

PHUKET, THAILAND – Outrigger Enterprises Group has appointed Marc Landgraf as the General Manager of the Outrigger Koh Samui Beach Resort in Thailand, effective 18 August 2016.

The resort is a 52-key all-suite and villa beachfront property in Samui that has just completed major renovations and enhancements. Outrigger acquired the property in mid 2015.

Landgraf has over 30 years’ hotel industry experience, much of it at general manager level in Asia at leading holiday resorts in southern Thailand. He will report to William Visser, the Outrigger Vice President of Operations who is based in the company’s Asia Pacific regional office in Phuket.

Before the move, Landgraf, a French national, was General Manager at the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas for three years and General Manager at the former Outrigger Phi Phi Island Resort and Spa.

Before joining Outrigger in 2012 Landgraf served as General Manager of the Cape Panwa Hotel & Spa in Phuket, Director of Sales at Aleenta Resorts and Spa, Thailand, and as General Manager of the Paradise Koh Yao Boutique Resort and Spa near Phuket.

Landgraf also draws on resort management experience in the Dominican Republic and in serviced apartment management in Brussels. He has extensive experience in sales, food and beverage, as well as resort management.

Landgraf knows Koh Samui well having been a resort manager at Saboey Resort & Villas on the island. He has also managed a Brazilian restaurant in a large hotel there.

“Marc brings with him solid resort management experience in southern Thailand and knows the Outrigger way,” said Darren Edmonstone, Outrigger Managing Director, Asia Pacific. ”He offers all the key credentials to take our beautifully refurbished resort in Samui to the next level.”

Landgraf who speaks German and Spanish as well as his native French and English, is a graduate in International Hospitality Management from the Hotel Management School in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Landgraf succeeds Rory Campbell the out-going General Manager at the Outrigger Koh Samui Beach Resort.
