Magdalena Martorell, a seasoned professional with two decades of hospitality experience in Europe and Asia has taken charge of Meliá Phuket Mai Khao.
The Spanish-born general manager comes to Meliá Phuket Mai Khao after successfully opening Meliá Shanghai Parkside in China, and SOL by Meliá Phu Quoc in Vietnam.
Martorell has worked with Meliá Hotels International for the entirety of her hospitality career, beginning 20 years ago when she was selected to join the leading Spanish hotel group’s internal development programme.
She steadily rose through the ranks, working as the operations manager at Tryp Rey Pelayo at Gijón in the north of Spain before becoming the resident manager at Meliá Barcelona. She then became the general manager at Tryp Barcelona Aeropuerto before moving to Asia in 2012 to assume the hotel manager post at Meliá Bali & The Garden Villas.
Opening soon, Meliá Phuket Mai Khao offers 30 suites and 70 villas, and facilities such as four dining outlets, a five-treatment-room spa, three swimming pools, a fully-equipped fitness centre, kids’ club, ballroom and two multifunctional rooms.
