Kenney’s responsibilities include coordinating, supervising, and directing all property f&b operations as well as promoting quality services and business practices. His goals involve moving the resort from all-inclusive to an individualized European Plan (EP), ultimately offering guests quality service and enhanced dining experiences.

A 25-year veteran to the hospitality industry and first-year rookie to Wyndham, Kenney has been involved in several other properties in the United States as well. Most recently, he was food and beverage director at Fisher Island in Miami, Fla., and served six years at the Mission Inn Golf & Tennis Resort. Kenney has also held many other positions in food and beverage, including restaurant manager, room service manager, executive steward and convention services manager. Kenney’s vision is to increase food and beverage revenue with quality catering both locally and for corporate groups.

Manning has been in the hospitality industry for a total of 14 years. Most recently, he was director of housekeeping at the Wyndham Miami Airport. Past positions include guest services manager, director of revenue management, reservations manager, director of housekeeping and by request manager. Manning plans to ensure that the standards of the Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa are being met on a daily basis within the rooms division, which includes housekeeping, guest services and activities. 

Larry Magor, managing director for Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa says, “We are excited to welcome these two men to our staff. I am confident they will be great assets for our company bringing decades of hospitality and service experience.” 

Carved into a mountainside of 31 lush, tropical acres, the newly renovated 300 guest rooms and suites at the Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa reveal stunning views of infinite emerald landscapes from an ocean side cliff overlooking the glittering turquoise waters of Smith Bay. From an award-winning spa to the “Grotto Grove” Kids Klub, the resort provides the ultimate Caribbean vacation.
