Executive Changes at Viceroy Bali

Luxury Resort Announces New General Manager and Director of Sales and Marketing

Indonesia, Ubud, Bali. November 16, 2020

Viceroy Bali - the luxury resort overlooking the serene Valley of the Kings in Ubud, Bali - has announced the appointment of Amanda Syrowatka as General Manager and Patrick Farrell as Director of Sales & Marketing.

Amanda takes the helm of the family-run luxury property from her brother Anthony, who held the position since pre-opening. She is no stranger to the resort: in addition to being co-owner, she held the position of Director of Sales & Marketing from 2014, where she reaffirmed Viceroy Bali's notability in the luxury travel sector, including the title of #1 Resort in the World by Condé Nast Traveler (2018).

Prior to joining the family business, Amanda worked at specialist Accounting firm McGrathNicol in her hometown of Sydney, Australia. Her strong leadership skills and hands-on approach to management are tipped to help continue the resort's success.

Commenting on Amanda's appointment, founder Otto Syrowatka said: "When we opened Viceroy Bali in 2005, we hoped - but had no real idea - it would grow to the international success and acclaim it has today. I am proud not only as a father but as a long-term resident of Bali, to see Viceroy passed to Amanda, whom I know will stamp her passion and personality into the resort."

Amanda is joined by Patrick Farrell in the role of Director of Sales & Marketing. Patrick joins from The Lanesborough, an Oetker Collection Hotel, in London, having also worked for global hotel brands in Dubai, Brussels, the Seychelles and Maldives.

"Patrick's enthusiasm for, and experience in, the luxury travel sector will make him a great addition to the team," says Amanda.

With international borders closed since March 2020, the team at Viceroy Bali have developed fifteen new pool villas, alongside a new state-of-the-art Wellness facility and refurbishment of Cascades restaurant.

Despite the challenging times in the travel industry, the owners have managed to retain all 170 resort employees, and recently reopened the Apéritif and Cascades restaurants to domestic guests in a Covid-safe environment.

"We've been working hard to support the local community during this time, including food donations and charity events," says Amanda. "Viceroy Bali and my family are committed to helping the locals stay sustained until the island is ready to welcome global citizens again. And when those borders reopen, our new Pool Villas and Wellness facility will be waiting to provide an enhanced experience to our guests."

Eco-Friendly Practices: Now More Than Ever

One theory about the pandemic states that future viruses are more likely to originate and flourish due to global warming. If true, the urgency to accelerate the adoption of eco-friendly practices is greater than ever. Of course, there are many other reasons to create a sustainable operation, including reduced utility costs, savings on operational costs, healthier and happier guests and employees, and positive publicity, marketing and community goodwill. Many hotels are introducing innovative programs into their operations - from recycling bins in guest rooms to starting a roof top garden. Other hotels are using eco-friendly cleaning products, reusing towels and sheets, sourcing locally grown food, supporting the use of electric vehicles, and permitting guests to refill their reusable water bottles with clean, filtered water. Finally, some hotels are encouraging guests to get involved by making it possible for them to participate in local community clean-up projects. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
