 November 10, 2008 (Turks and Caicos) – A veteran of the luxury hospitality industry, Monica Neumann, has been appointed the new General Manager of the award-winning Regent Palms Turks and Caicos, one of only five Caribbean hotels to earn a spot on Robb Report’s 100 Best Places to Stay 2008, and the resort’s Regent Spa was on Condé Nast Traveler’s coveted “Hot List” for 2008. With extensive luxury hospitality experience, including Director of Operations and Director of Quality Integration and Training for Regent Hotels, Neumann oversees all operations for the award-winning resort, which overlooks renowned Grace Bay Beach on the island of Providenciales.

“Monica is a sparkling hospitality talent with a keen eye for quality and an impressive background in luxury. Combining Monica’s impressive talent with our award-winning Caribbean resort is a recipe for success,” said Bjorn Gullaksen of Regent Hotels & Resorts. 
Boasting prime location on renowned Grace Bay Beach, The Regent Palms Turks and Caicos is the Caribbean’s most desirable destination. The resort’s 72 one-, two- and three bedroom suites feature balconies or expansive terraces, marble floors, vaulted ceilings, custom-made mahogany furnishings, 400 thread-count Egyptian linens, as well as kitchens with classic cabinetry equipped with Viking appliances. Resort features include a $1.8 million serpentine infinity pool; Caribbean fusion cuisine at newly re-launched signature restaurant, Parallel23, A Tropical Grille, where the acclaimed Executive Chef, Torsten Rumprecht, recently shared his talents at the world-renowned Mobil 5-Star, White Barn Inn Restaurant in Kennebunkport, ME, or the Plunge pool restaurant and bar. The Regent Spa, newly re-launched in late 2007, is the heart of the resort, with an immense reflecting pool, stand-alone treatment rooms, and a lengthy menu of signature and classic treatments
