Michael Melzer

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has appointed Michael Melzer as the General Manager of Mӧvenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives, the stunning new sustainably designed island resort which is scheduled to open its doors in November 2018.

A German national, Michael has more than 35 years' experience in the hospitality industry, many of which have been spent in the Asia Pacific region. He also has qualifications from Cornell University and Dale Carnegie Hong Kong, and he has worked for some of the industry's most famous brands over the course of almost four decades in the hospitality industry. Most recently he was GM of the Sunrise Nha Trang Beach Hotel & Spa, a luxury sea-facing property in Vietnam.
Mövenpick has deep roots in the food and beverage industry, and this heritage aligns perfectly with Michael's own passion for the culinary arts.
