This new appointment is testimony to our unique company culture to empower women in senior positions, and we welcome Luisa on this crucial move to OZEN MANSION KOLKATA.

For the opening of our first exceptional luxury city hotel in India, I am confident that Luisa is the right person to lead the team to a grand opening on 7th July 2024, and bring in the touch of Refined Elegance.” 
 
Taking on this endeavour demands a mastery of the hospitality industry, an area in which Luisa boasts a remarkable track record spanning over two decades. She has held prominent positions at leading international hospitality brands across the globe. Before accepting her role in Kolkata, Luisa consistently exceeded expectations in team management, operational processes and guest satisfaction, setting new standards of excellence at both OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI and OZEN LIFE MAADHOO, where she held the key position of General Manager.
