Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 1st 2012 – Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Anders Dimblad as General Manager of its two properties in Ras Al Khaimah, Banyan Tree Al Wadi in the desert and Banyan Tree, Ras Al Khaimah Beach.
Mr. Dimblad will work closely with an extensive team to streamline and maintain smooth operations across both resorts. He is also responsible for achieving challenging business goals while complying with the high standards set by the Banyan Tree Group.
Banyan Tree Al Wadi integrates seamlessly with its surrounding arid environment, offering 70 Al Rimal Deluxe Pool Villas along with 16 Al Khaimah and 15 Al Sahari Tented Pool Villas. Architecture for the tented suites showcases traditional Arabic design with polished wood, high ceilings and elaborate touches of lattice woodwork. This contrasts against the neutral colour of the tents and the open rolling desert plains of cattails, ghaf and sidr trees on view from the private decking area and infinity pool at each villa. The Banyan Tree Spa Al Wadi at the Desert Resort offers an extensive hydrotherapy spa circuit – The Rainforest – with a hammam, vitality pool and 10 spa treatment pavilions. There are also meeting and banquet services, an activity centre, kids’ club, a world-class falconry mews and horse and camel stables.
Located just 20 minutes from the desert, Banyan Tree, Ras Al Khaimah Beach comprises 32 Beachfront Pool Villas set on a private peninsula of sand emulating the nomadic tent style of Bedouin tribes. Each villa is 170sqm with a private terrace, infinity plunge pool and beach cabana, and resides just footsteps from the sea and beyond. There is also a dedicated spa with six treatment rooms situated at the end of the peninsula with sweeping views out across the ocean and a beach grill restaurant, Sands, set around a large infinity pool.
Mr. Dimblad has criss-crossed the globe since he began his career at Banyan Tree in 2003, including management roles at Banyan Tree Seychelles, Angsana Ihuru, Angsana Hotel & Suites
(Dubai) and Banyan Tree Bangkok. Prior to his current appointment, he was the General Manager of Banyan Tree Seychelles.
