Sandro Mazza has been promoted to general manager of Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa. In his new role, he will be responsible for directing and evaluating the day-to-day activities of Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa’s 180 guest rooms, four dining outlets, state-of-the-art wellness facilities including Hareer Spa By L’Occitane and a purpose built fitness centre.

Mazza’s appointment follows his role as resident manager of adjacent sister property Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, where he held the position for 18 months following a stint at Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives as resident manager.

“I am delighted to join the team at Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa,” said Mazza. “As general manager, I look forward to working with the team to continue to drive Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa to the next levels of luxury.”

Mazza has over 10 years of experience with the Shangri-La Group. In 2014, Mazza was promoted to resident manager of Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi. From 2012 to 2014, Mazza was director of rooms at Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong after being promoted from office manager at China World Summit Wing, Beijing. Prior to his role in Beijing, Mazza was Valley Wing manager at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore in 2009. In 2006, Mazza started at the Shangri-La Group as assistant front office manager at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore.

Perched on a cliff overlooking the Gulf of Oman against the dramatic backdrop of rugged mountains, Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa sets the standard for luxury in Muscat. In May 2018, Shangri-La Al Husn relaunched as a private standalone resort. The palatial Al Husn – which means castle in Arabic – features 180 rooms and suites and was previously marketed as part of the adjacent Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, an integrated destination resort comprised of the family and leisure-focused Al Waha and Al Bandar hotels.
