Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa has appointed Stavros Packeiser as its new General Manager.
Stavros grew up in Sidirokastro, a small city in northern Greece and at the age of 18, ventured into Edinburgh to study for a degree in computer science at Heriot-Watt University. For extra income, Stavros got a part-time job as a waiter and soon realized that he enjoyed working with people more than computers.
After graduating in 2002, Stavros commenced his hospitality career as a bar supervisor at The Carlton Hotel in Edinburgh and during his working life has advanced through food and beverage roles on the world’s largest ocean line RMX Queen Mary 2, and at Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki in Greece; Hyatt Regency Dushanbe in Tajikistan; Sani Resort in Halkidiki, Greece; Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi (now on Andaz); Grand Hyatt Dubai; Rixos The Palm Dubai; and Palace Downtown in Dubai. Since 2017, Stavros has been F & B Director at Park Hyatt Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City.
“At Park Hyatt Maldives, I plan to continue the valuable work my predecessors have done for the resort in terms of performance and sustainability”, says Stavros of his first General Manager role. “I am to bring to life new projects and experiences that will make our resort a leader in sustainability and luxury travel.”
Stavros is married to Dia who loves adventure and travel. They have a 15-month-old son Harris who has already taken more than a dozen flights to numerous countries.
