Estelle will place particular emphasis on Team Member engagement and development, fostering a culture of appreciation and professional development, providing opportunities for advancement, and ensuring a supportive and inclusive work environment to guarantee the hotel is recognised as a preferred place of employment.

Fluent in five languages and holding a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in Hospitality Management from Glion Institute of Higher Education, Switzerland, Estelle embodies a global perspective and a profound understanding of the intricacies of the hospitality landscape.

Expressing her enthusiasm for her new role, Estelle stated, "I am extremely proud to lead this unique Anantara property, which encapsulates the essence of the Amalfi coast with its rich history and panoramic vistas. I look forward to collaborating with the team, local community and partners to curate unforgettable experiences for our discerning clientele, as well as continuing to develop and enhance our Anantara Spa and dining concepts.”
