Stuart Lyall

Appointed General Manager
At Fusion Suites Vung Tau, Vietnam

Stuart Lyall

As Fusion grows its hotel portfolio with the opening of Fusion Suites Vung Tau, the wellness-focused hospitality group has appointed seasoned hotelier, Stuart John Lyall, to manage the new property.

The new general manager is already leading the hotel through its soft-opening phase and putting plans into action for an April grand opening. Stuart's most recent role had him guiding Selong Selo Resort & Residences in Lombok, Indonesia through its soft opening phase, where he was the GM responsible for everything from establishing and implementing CSR to acting as director of sales and marketing.

Prior to his time in Indonesia Stuart was based in Khao Sok, Thailand from 2017 - 2018 where he also held a general manager role. At Our Jungle Camp, like at Selong Selo, he wore many hats under the GM umbrella, from construction manager during the initial build to guest services management.

Much of Stuart's hospitality experience comes from his time with world leading Australian Cruise company, Travel Marvel (part of APT Group), where he was regional product manager Asia & India from 2013 - 2017. It was during this time that he was closely involved with Fusion Suites Sai Gon on the wholesale side, playing a pivotal role in the hotel's success.

Stuart's first footstep into the hospitality industry was his Bachelor of Arts, International Hotel & Tourism Management, at the University of Queensland, Australia, in 1993. Over the years, he has worked as general manager of sales and marketing for South Sea Horizons, Papua New Guinea tour experts, as regional product manager Asia Pacific with tour company Peregrine Adventures; been an international travel and hotel consultant for Flight Centre, Australia's largest retail travel agency; and worked as an Asia-focused tour director for adventure travel company, Intrepid Travel.
