13 June, 2020
Vakkaru Maldives is delighted to announce the appointment of Janice Tan as its new Director of Sales and Marketing. Her two-decade-long career in luxury hospitality commenced at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, including stints in Beijing, Singapore and most commonly at the Maldives’ leading resorts.
She arrives at Vakkaru Maldives with an innate understanding of what makes holidaying in this idyllic island nation so special. A sales and marketing veteran, Janice brings a wealth of experience, vision and connections and will help to define the strategies that will ensure the resort is recognized as one of the world’s preeminent retreats.
In her previous leadership roles, Janice was instrumental in launching luxury resorts in the Maldives including Anantara Naladhu, during her tenure as Anantara Group’s Cluster Director of Public Relations, Velaa Private Island and Accor’s Raffles Maldives Meradhoo, where she served on both occasions as Director of Sales and Marketing. She was also Regional Director of Sales and Marketing for COMO Hotels and Resorts’ COMO Maalifushi and COMO Cocoa Island.
Raised by parents who worked in the airline industry, she has traveled extensively and lived in Switzerland, Italy, Greece, the US and France. She then indulged her love of gastronomy by studying at Le Cordon Bleu, Paris and working at the three-Michelin-starred Restaurant Georges Blanc. Currently based both in Singapore and the Maldives, she enjoys practicing Pilates, ongoing movements, yoga and mindful meditation.
Her lifelong love of travel and residency in countries around the world will provide invaluable insights as the Maldives redefine its approach to tourism and hospitality in response to the changing consumer habits and preferences following the evolving global crisis.
Speaking about her appointment, Janice said: “I am so excited to join the team at Vakkaru Maldives, a privately owned and managed resort where exceptional attention to detail and a passion for unsurpassed hospitality is integral to everything, and a commitment to ensuring loved ones can interact and reconnect in tranquility underpins every service and interaction.” With her vast experience in luxury hospitality, Janice will play a key role in spreading the word about what makes Vakkaru so stellar and securing its position as the top resort in this quintessential luxury holiday destination.
