Centara Hotels & Resorts has appointed Franck Rodriguez as general manager of Centara Mirage Resort Mui Ne, set to open in 3Q2021.
A French national with more than 20 years of industry experience, Rodriguez has worked reputed hospitality brands including Leading Hotels of the World, InterContinental Hotels Group and Starwood Hotels & Resorts (now part of Marriott International). He is also no stranger to the Centara brand, having spent a formative part of his career as the F&B manager at Centara Villas Samui.
More recently, Rodriguez was group director of operations with The Unique Collection of Hotels & Resorts for almost five years, overseeing a portfolio of 27 upscale properties, before joining IHG, where he was responsible for the opening of several key hotels, including the Asia Pacific region’s first-ever voco hotel in Danang.
The Centara Mirage Resort Mui Ne is the second Centara Mirage resort worldwide, and is Centara Hotels & Resorts’ first property in Vietnam.
The family leisure destination is centred around an “Explorer’s Playground” waterpark, complete with pools, slides, a sailing ship, lazy river, splash zone and cliff-jumping rock. The property will also have 984 rooms and villas, and boast amenities such as six restaurants, six bars, playgrounds, entertainment complex, spa, observatory tower, grand ballroom, and outdoor amphitheatre.
