Chiva-Som International Health Resorts has appointed Heinrich Morio as the GM of its newest wellness destination in Qatar, Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som.
Morio brings over three decades of experience in the hospitality industry to his new role, having worked across an array of hotels in different markets, including Europe, the United States, the Indian Ocean, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. This has put him in a strong position to deliver positive business results and tangible outcomes for Zulal Wellness Resort, ensuring guests have the same transformational experience they have come to expect as the Chiva-Som standard.
Krip Rojanastien, chairman of Chiva-Som International Health Resorts, said: “We are pleased to welcome Heinrich to the Chiva-Som family. His professional experience and his personal wellness journey will be a great asset to the team. His ability to bring out the best in people and commitment to delivering the highest service standards are just some reasons why we asked him to lead the team. Under his sharp leadership and with a keen eye for detail, we are confident that his expertise will prove invaluable in ensuring that Zulal Wellness Resort delivers an unpara;leled wellness experience, along with the highest level of service and satisfaction to our guests”.
Heinrich has a strong personal ethic when it comes to wellness, which is what attracted him to Zulal Wellness Resort. His determination shows in his “walk-the-talk” in terms of wellness. He has progressed from team sports to more individual pursuits, once enjoying long-distance running but now using the gym more and swimming on a regular basis.
Morio said: “As people age, they begin to realize that fitness alone is not enough – therefore developing an understanding and awareness that diet and nutrition are the biggest contributors to wellness, and they are anti-aging in their own right. Following my own tests for food intolerance, I can see clearly the impact of food on health. I am excited and honored to be working with the wellness professionals and the kitchen team at Zulal Wellness Resort to lead the pursuit of wellness for guests from around the world.”
At Zulal Wellness Resort, Morio will be responsible for overseeing all areas of operations, sales, commercials, and marketing. With a culture of wellness at the forefront, every aspect of his service delivery will be focused on providing an environment that encourages healthy lifestyles and well-being.
