Deasy SwandariniGeneral Hotel Management Ltd (GHM) has named Deasy Swandarini general manager of its intimate 20-villa resort – The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, Ubud, Bali – a private hideaway nestled in Ubud’s emerald rice paddies. Balinese by birth, Swandarini joins the GHM family after having spent a large part of her hospitality career in several of Bali’s highly regarded resorts including Kayumanis Nusa Dua, The Royal Santrian Luxury Beach Villas, The Mulia and The Ritz-Carlton Bali. Her extensive knowledge of sales, marketing and revenue management is a natural complement for her dynamic leadership, as testified by the stellar performance of the previous resorts under her charge. Most recently the General Manager of Kamandalu Ubud where she successfully repositioned the resort by delivering a new brand identity, conceptualised new operational standards through the introduction of a butler service, among others, Swandarini had also demonstrated her adroitness through consistently high standards in overall service and quality in the resorts where she has worked. It is no coincidence that both Kayumanis Nusa Dua and The Royal Santrian Luxury Beach Villas earned the top ranking on TripAdvisor while Swandarini was at the helm.
