Jeremy Samuels has joined Sofitel Queenstown Hotel and Spa as general manager bringing with him a wealth of experience in the hotel industry.

From a young age, Samuels has been fascinated with the hospitality industry, as both his parents travelled extensively for their work. He has very fond memories of spending time in numerous luxurious hotels, and that led him directly to this career path.

Hailing from Australia, Jeremy began his local and international career in hotel operations before moving into business and revenue development.

Samuels has been with AccorHotels since 2012, where he initially worked as director of revenue at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth. He has also worked further within the hospitality industry at Mercure Central and recently as the general manager at ibis Adelaide.

“There’s so much to offer local and international visitors in Queenstown. I am excited to bring to the Sofitel Queenstown my vision and passion of creating memorable experiences for guests that capture the excitement and romance of hospitality,” said Samuels.
