Top luxury Seychelles hotel, Fregate Island Private appoints new Managing Director

The upscale Fregate Island Private in the Seychelles has appointed Paul van Frank as its new Managing Director.

The spa resort is a favourite among travellers seeking luxury Seychelles holidays and Mr van Frank is a specialist in running luxury resorts and has previously worked as the General Manager of Shanti Maurice in Mauritius for over two years.

Mr van Frank will be taking over from the temporary General Manager, Ian Barbour, who has been running the eco-retreat for the past nine months.

“Firstly, on behalf of the entire team at Fregate Island Private, I wish to express our gratitude to Ian Barbour for all of his hard work, commitment and dedication, which is greatly appreciated," said Mr van Frank.

It is an honour to have been given this unmissable opportunity to capture the essence of such a unique, eco-conscious, and exclusive island that is justly regarded as a destination in its own right. I am thrilled to have been invited to lead this ultra-luxurious island resort to achieve its full potential, for the enjoyment of the most discerning of world travellers.”

He went on to work as the General Manager of luxury resorts and hotels such as the Renaissance Resort Aruba, the famous Kemer Golf & Country Club in Turkey, and the Begawan Giri Estate in Bali, which was awarded as the “Best of the Best” by readers of Condé Nast Traveller during his two years in the management role.
