Michael Fahey - General Manager
Born in New Zealand, Michael began working life as a civil engineer and relocated to South East Asia in the early 1990s. Originally assigned to project-manage Miskawaan's construction, he took a change of direction and moved into the General Manager's role as soon as the resort was completed. Michael counts local knowledge, his familiarity with the 'nuts & bolts' of Miskawaan and an understanding of the Thai people, culture and language as crucial factors in both his managerial success and the pleasure he gets from living and working on Koh Samui.
Mandeep Singh - Operations and Guest Relations Manager
Born in Vancouver, Canada, Mandeep has worked for a total of seven years at hotels in Canada, the US and the UK, as well as undergoing three years' training in International Hotel Management during time in Switzerland. His day-to-day role involves welcoming guests to Miskawaan along with overseeing the smooth running of all the resort's operations and staffing. He cites the island's lifestyle and its great beaches, food and people as the best things about life on Koh Samui. When it comes to work, he particularly enjoys meeting guests, both old and new, as well as working with a great team of people and gaining superb professional experience.
Victoria Hansen - Sales and Marketing Manager
Swedish-born Victoria combines sales and marketing experience, gained in Spain and the UK, with three years' training in International Hotel Management. She loves Koh Samui's climate, people and incredible natural beauty, while on a professional note she enjoys the warmth and appreciation shown by guests as well as working at such a unique and special property. Her day-to-day role is to promote the resort, explore new business opportunities and work closely with travel agents around the world.
Lorraine Lim Marsh - Sales and Marketing
Lorraine joined the team at Miskawaan in early 2013, though she's lived and worked on Samui since 2005. Originally from The Philippines, she has a Bachelor of Science degree in Commerce from St. Paul's University and worked for IBM in Manila after graduating. Since arriving on Samui she has gained experience of sales and marketing in one of the leading resorts, managed the Front Office Department for a top-class hotel and coordinated the Weddings and Events for Faraway Weddings. The proud mum of a gorgeous baby boy, she can't imagine a better place than Samui to begin a new family - nor a more stunning location for families from around the world to meet up and spend time together.
Maria Panyawan - Reservations Officer
Maria was born in Thailand, educated in Germany and has since accumulated 15 years' experience in the travel and hospitality sector. Today, her role involves liaising directly with guests and agents, dealing with everything from initial enquiries and preparing quotes through to arranging special requests. As well as the climate and people, Maria loves the fact that the island of Koh Samui isn't too large or over-developed. She enjoys the flexibility of her work, and the fact that not having a fixed schedule means she has plenty of time to enjoy the island's many pleasures.
Boonying Sripahdee - Assistant General Manager
Thai-born Boonying has been with Miskawaan for nearly two and a half years and has seven years' accounting experience. His day-to-day role involves managing the resort's cash flow by overseeing payments, expenses and revenues. He also prepares reports for the Revenue Department. Sun, sea and sand are Boonying's top three things about living on Koh Samui, while the importance of his day-to-day work to Miskawaan's continuing success is something he particularly enjoys about his job here.
Meenapat Nonluecha - Reservations Officer
Meenapat has worked in the hospitality and travel industry for ten years now, the last three of those years spent here with us at Miskawaan. Her favourite aspects of the Reservations Officer role include meeting such a wide range of guests from all corners of the globe, and being able to contribute to the success of every guest's holiday by helping organise those personal touches that make their stay special. Meenapat loves to hear guests' positive feedback about the resort, and to share in their enthusiasm for Koh Samui as a whole.
Watthana Panprom (Tar) – Guest Services Manager
Watthana is the perfect person to advise our guests on every aspect of Thai culture and about Samui in particular. She was born and raised here and her family has lived on the island for generations.
