Appointed Resort Manager
At Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita in Bel Air
Over the past 18 years, Jardin’s career has taken him from the sunshine of Hawaii to the bustling cities of Chicago, New York and Cairo, not forgetting a three year period at the idyllic Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara in California.
His tenure with the company began as Assistant Restaurant Manager at Four Seasons Resort Maui, where he stayed for a total of five years. Here, he worked his way up through a variety of management positions in the food and beverage division, before swapping golden beaches for the fast pace of Chicago to join The Ritz-Carlton Chicago (A Four Seasons Hotel) as Assistant Director of Food and Beverage in 1999.
Jardin once again returned to Hawaii in 2003, but this time to Four Seasons Resort Hualalai as Director of Food and Beverage. In addition to his island days in Hawaii, Jardin’s resort experience also encompasses a position across the Pacific Ocean as Resort Manager in Bora Bora.
Despite such impressive experience in the hotel industry, Jardin’s path in life almost took a very different route, with his initial career taking the direction of the Navy. However, with two brothers in the food and beverage industry (one a chef and the other a baker), Jardin decided that it was hospitality that was in fact his true calling. He returned to education to study Hotel Management at Lasalle College, Montreal and soon after, found himself taking up his first of many opportunities with Four Seasons.
Now calling the coral fringed island of Mauritius home, Jardin will assist General Manager Todd Cilano in the running of the all pool villa resort, which is complete with four restaurants, an overwater Spa and an Ernie Els-designed championship golf course.
