These integrated Eco-Resorts will be premium, sustainable facilities that offer the best in relaxation and rejuvenation - a true sanctuary for the development of physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

They will offer a wide range of facilities, from all the traditional resort facilities, including quality accommodation, restaurants, spa, pool etc., matched with health, wellness and medical facilities with programmes focused on prevention, regeneration and renewal.

Based in China, the initial focus for the Chief Operating Officer will be to work with the CEO and board to open several new resorts. The sites have been identified and the next property scheduled for a 2018 opening with the rest in the subsequent years…

The ideal candidate will have a background in the management and leadership of high-end, luxury leisure resorts - boutique/mid-sized properties focused on quality service.

They will most likely be an experienced General Manager or work in a Corporate Role with an international chain - those with a background in luxury boutique resorts, contemporary high end brands or more traditional luxury properties are equally well received.

They will have extensive experience in openings and pre-openings, development, concept design and strategic planning.

Previous experience in Asia is essential, as is a hands-on approach, strong work ethic and most importantly, a creative and entrepreneurial spirit.

It will require some regular travel and 'can do' attitude.

Commencement is scheduled for the beginning of the second quarter in 2017.

Your application should include a cover letter and detailed CV (with a recent photo), briefly outlining your past work experience and achievements. Please also provide 3 referees (inc email addresses) and your salary expectation.

Due to the anticipated volume of applications we are sorry but only shortlisted candidates will be contacted…
