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."

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
