One of the best multi island destinations in the Maldives Banyan Tree Vabbinfaruand Dhawa Ihuru welcome its new General Manager, Hery Kuswoyo who will be heading the operation teams of both properties to elevate the delivery of excellent services to the guests, and achieve the desired business result.

A true home-grown executive in one of the world’s leading independent, multi-branded hospitality groups, Hery has been part of the Banyan Tree family since 2010, when he first joined as Executive Assistant Manager – Food and Beverage at Banyan Tree Bangkok.  In the same year, he was assigned to Banyan Tree Macau during its pre-opening.  He then moved as the Hotel Manager at Banyan Tree Phuket and Angsana Laguna Phuket in 2015.

With 30 years of experience in luxury hospitality, one of the highlights of Hery’s career was his appointment as the Director – Regional Operations in Banyan Tree’s Corporate Office in Singapore in 2016, where he was responsible for responding to operational issues raised by General Managers, and coordinating with them to find the most effective and efficient resolution.  As an accomplished executive with expertise in the hospitality world, he was instrumental in ensuring that such issues would be prevented before they happened.

Equipped with an outstanding track record in setting up and implementing organisational structures in pre-opening destination properties, he returned to hotel operations in 2020 as the pre-opening General Manager of Homm Saranam Bali, one of the newest brands of the Banyan Tree Group.

Prior to joining the Banyan Tree Group, Hery had an extensive experience in diverse management roles at luxury hotels, such as the Hyatt, JW Marriott, Four Seasons and The Ritz Carlton in various locations, namely US, Asia, and Middle East.

Hery hails from Indonesia, and is always inspired to work with dynamic teams from multi-cultural background.  He is very excited for this new chapter of his career in the Maldives.  As he expressed with enthusiasm, “Coming to the Maldives is like going home to Bali.  The genuine care of the people and island life style we encounter daily motivate me to work closer with my team here at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru and Dhawa Ihuru.  The richness of the ocean with hundreds of living creatures to learn allow us to bond and have fun outside office hours – just like meeting my friends every single day.”

As an avid fan of Harley Davidson, Hery loves big bike riding.  He also swings his golf club occasionally.  Now that he is in the Maldives, he is very keen to start a diving lesson soon. 

Set on North Malé Atoll, just 25-minute away from Velana International Airport via speedboat, Dhawa Ihuru, formerly known as Angsana Ihuru, is a distinct island retreat of its own with 45 villas, where abundant nature, local culture and warm hospitality meet with stylish comfort and modern design, ideal for the new generation of independent travellers.  Dubbed as one of the best house reefs and the most picturesque islands in the Maldives, Dhawa Ihuru is home to the signature dive spot, Rannamaari Wreck, which lies 26-metre deep a few metres off the house reef, offering diverse marine species to discover. Situated just two minutes from Dhawa Ihuru is a luxury barefoot tropical paradise.  With 48 pool villas dotting around the island, privacy and relaxation can easily be attained.  The resort is home to the Banyan Tree Maldives Marine Lab, the first of its kind to be funded and built on a private resort, where guests can learn about marine conservation and partake in the many sustainability activities available, such as coral planting, reef cleaning and marine talk.

Dhawa Ihuru by Banyan Tree Group offers: Free Airport Transfers and Sunset Cruise for minimum 3 nights stay & June Limited-Time Travel Perks, book now to enjoy USD 100 per night resort credit
