PHUKET: Widely respected hotelier Anthony Lark has been appointed managing director and general manager of Trisara, a high-end resort of 48 pool villas and 20 privately owned residences on Phuket’s west coast.
In his new role, Mr Lark will continue to provide hospitality advisory services to the clients of the Montara Hospitality Group, which operates the resort, and will develop the next generation of young hoteliers to steer the group’s careful expansion, stated a press release issued by the group today.
Mr Lark has enjoyed considerable success with more than 25 years of experience leading luxury hotel groups in the region. Born in Sydney, Australia, he started his career by working his way through all departments at the Wentworth Hotel Sydney, after which his experience includes the Regent (now Four Seasons) Sydney, Amanpuri and several Aman resort properties.
In 2000, Mr Lark joined Trisara during its development and design period. Since opening in 2004, Trisara has been the recipient of many accolades and awards, including ‘Resort of the Year’ bestowed by the Robb Report, and Best Leisure Resort, Worldwide 2014 by the readers of the Gallivanter’s Guide, as well as Condé Nast Traveller‘s Gold list for 2015.
“Anthony was the first general manager of Trisara and he helped us build the foundation, which made us successful. We are pleased to have him back on board to ensure that the resort continues to evolve to serve the changing needs of our clients,” said Bill Black, president of Montara Hospitality.
The past two years have been record-breakers for Trisara, noted the release.
“Thanks to a new organization structure with centralized sales and marketing, we were able to achieve the best business results since opening 10 years ago. With greater focus on service and guest experience, Trisara has secured the top position on TripAdvisor which we consider a great achievement,” it read.
Mr Lark’s return also coincides with the start of Trisara’s three-year renovation plan, which aims to increase the resort’s guest satisfaction by improving the overall look and feel of the resort, while innovating to meet the demands of the future traveler, including the creation of ever-more refined experiences.
“What sets Trisara apart from competitors is our amazing staff and a focus on the finer details of a guest’s overall experience. We understand that our guests value privacy and attention to detail as a standard of luxury,” said Mr Lark.
“This has become one of the key elements we provide at Trisara. We also understand that change is inevitable, so during the ongoing commitment to renovation, we will also embrace the changing guest demographic and technological advancements to ensure that we are always able to exceed the expectations of our guests.”
