A seasoned international hotelier with more than 22 years of experience, Mr Koessler speaks three languages (English, German and Russian) and has worked in seven countries: the UK, UAE, Russia, China, Vietnam, Thailand and his native Austria.

Having started out as a chef at several leading Austrian hotels, Mr Koessler’s international career commenced in impressive fashion at the world-famous Burj Al Arab in Dubai. He later moved to the UK and then on to Russia, eventually rising to the positions of Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director at the Moscow Marriott Royal Aurora Hotel.

Mr Koessler then swapped his chef’s whites for a suit and tie when he moved to Sochi, Russia and joined Capella Hotel Group as Executive Assistant Manager responsible for the pre-opening and set up of three luxury hotels. In 2014, he opened the five-star Han Yue Lou Hotel in Nanjing, China, as task force hotel manager under the same hotel group umbrella.

Mr Koessler moved to Asia in 2015 for the pre-opening and opening of the five-star Vinpearl Ha Long Bay resort, an expansive new luxury property for the area. He then moved to Thailand and joined the Centara Hotel Group in Karon Beach as Resident Manager.
