Justin Arenhold has recently joined the Eden Island team as Business Development Manager and will be heading up the Eden Island Rentals Division. He began his hospitality career in South Africa and has worked in General Management positions at some of the leading hotels in South Africa. Justin has had previous operating experience in the Seychelles and spent an exciting two year period as the Island Manager and Resort General Manager at North Island.
After a period of travel through Europe he was appointed as the Resident Manager for the pre-opening of Taj Hotel in Cape Town followed by a two year consulting period based out of Mallorca, Spain. He has now once again found himself back in the Seychelles. With his track record and 20 years’ experience in top tier hotels internationally, Justin is looking forward to the challenges ahead. His expertise in building strong teams and previous operating experience in the Seychelles will stand him in good stead at Eden Island.
“We are building on an already solid framework,” he says. “I will be rolling out new strategies, implementing and streamlining new systems and setting up further operating processes to make the business more efficient. But it all comes down to ensuring that we deliver the best possible experience for our stakeholders whether these be our guests, our home owners or the shareholders of the business.”
The Eden Island Rental Division is in the process of re-branding itself as Eden Island Luxury Accommodation with its own distinct identity from which it aims to establish itself as a world class self-catering destination for international travellers. It hopes to contribute substantially to increasing the number of new visitors coming to Seychelles on holiday through its extensive international marketing initiatives and networking.
