Marriott International has appointed Marwan Fadel as the general manager of The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi.
A Lebanese national, Fadel has nearly two decades of hospitality experience across the Middle East. In his new role, he will oversee all management functions, hotel operations, and new innovations, aiming to achieve planned goals for the resort.
Fadel’s appointment comes 18 months after he became hotel manager of The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi, home to six restaurants, an athletics club, and Abu Dhabi’s only Iridium Spa. The five-star property features 376 guest rooms and suites include the 2,100 square meter Royal Suite, a duplex spanning the two uppermost floors.
Fadel moved to the UAE capital in 2011 to oversee its launch and was promoted to the role of Hotel Manager in August 2016. Since that time, he has maintained the St. Regis brand’s standards and forged strong strategic partnerships within the travel and tourism industry.
He began his career in 2002, working for Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, and was promoted to several senior management roles within the company. Seven years later, he became Area Director of Sales and Marketing for Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ Dubai properties; his remit was subsequently expanded to encompass Abu Dhabi and Northern Emirates.
