Dusit Thani Manila’s General Manager, Alex Willats, Shares Lifes Adventures as a Hotelier
IT has been over a year and a half since Dusit Thani Manila welcomed a new general manager, Alex Colin Willats, to the landmark hotel in Makati City. Though a first-time expatriate to the Philippines, the Englishman fell right at home in the five-star premises since he had just come from the same posting at the international chain’s flagship hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. Dusit Thani, after all, has truly become this world traveler’s home —and family—away from home. Family, according to the respected hotelier, has always been a priority in his life, even if it has taken him all over the world even at a very early age. In fact, in embracing his professional family at Dusit Thani, so have his lovely wife Claire and sons Thomas and Henry, whom he brings with him from posting to posting.
