Mauritius-based Sun Resorts has appointed Alexandre Hulen as Vice President Sales and Marketing.
Of French nationality and a graduate of London’s South Bank University, Alexandre, 42, started his career in the Concorde Hotels and Resorts group in 1998. He has a wealth of experience with prestigious hotel groups, including Eton Collection in France, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, overseeing sales and marketing at Le Méridien Fisherman’s Cove and Le Meridien Barbarons in the Seychelles, and Anantara and Naladhu in the Maldives.
In 2010, he took the position of Cluster Director of Sales and Marketing for Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts in the Maldives, before joining the Regent Group in Bali as Director of Sales and Marketing. Before joining the Sun Resorts team, based in Mauritius, Alexandre was Director of Sales and Marketing for One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai.
Alexandre is delighted to embark on this new stage of his career at Sun Resorts, with his position encompassing sales and marketing activity across the company’s four hotels in Mauritius — La Pirogue, Sugar Beach, Long Beach and Ambre, alongside the iconic Ile aux Cerfs, a leisure island featuring a championship golf course designed by Bernhard Langer, and the eco-friendly Bubble Lodges.
“We are very pleased that Alexandre is joining us to support the expansion of Sun Resorts in the international level. This nomination salutes his career and his success in developing the hotels he represented. His leadership and extensive experience in the hospitality industry will be vital qualities for Sun Resorts,” David Anderson, CEO of Sun Limited, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
In the Maldives, Sun Resorts owns and operates Kanuhura Maldives.
Located at the heart of one of the most spectacular Maldives atolls, Kanuhura is considered to be one of the most iconic barefoot beach resorts in the Indian Ocean. Part of the Mauritius-based hotel and leisure group Sun Resorts, Kanuhura hosted its first guest in 1999.
A reimagining of the resort in 2016, which includes the acquisition of neighbouring Masleggihura uninhabited island, positions it for the latest trend travellers have identified as Gypset; part gypsy in their drive for freedom and jetset, reflected in their wealth and craving for luxury living. The gypset muse of Kanuhura is Erin Wasson, famous top model and face representant of Maybelline.
The new rooms are luxury villas and suites with unusual elegance and furnished with natural materials with a touch of refinement and modernism. Whether you stay on the sunrise or sunset side of the island, you will be overwhelmed by the breathtaking view of the sea. The water villas have a private terrace with private access to the lagoon.
With its eight restaurants and bars, Kanuhura will make you discover various cuisines from all over the world such as Italy, Brazil and the Maldives. The chef also provides interactive cookery demonstrations.
