DOHA, December 6, 2016

AlRayyan Hotel Doha, Curio – A Collection by Hilton, the Middle East's first Curio hotel set to open this month, has appointed new executive members to its management team.

Luca Crocco, who was appointed as general manager during the hotel’s pre-opening phase in June 2015, leads a multicultural team working together in a property that breaths fashion, glamour and comfort in its 201 rooms and suites, five restaurants, three outdoor swimming pools, wellness areas, meeting rooms and Grand Ballroom. Crocco joins the team with over 20 years’ Hilton Worldwide experience, first starting his career with the company in 1996 as assistant food and beverage (F&B) manager at Hilton London St. Ermins.

The first member to join the executive team was Isabel Fernandez, who takes on the role of director of Business Development, bringing with her 11 years’ experience in the field, including two in pre-opening roles. Fernandez joined Hilton Worldwide in 2011 as part of the pre-opening team for Hilton Doha. In her new role, Fernandez oversees the sales, marketing, conference, events and reservations departments.

Shortly after Isabel, Shaik Basha joined the AlRayyan Hotel Doha team as executive chef. During his career, Basha has been part of five pre-opening teams, with AlRayyan Hotel Doha being the sixth time Basha sets up the kitchen department in a brand new hotel. With more than six years’ experience as executive chef and 16 years working in the kitchen, Basha brings quality, flavour and freshness to the menus of AlRayyan Hotel Doha’s restaurants.

He has been a part of the Hilton family since 2012, when he joined as Executive Chef of Hilton Shillim Retreat & Spa in India.

Othmane Lamine joins the team in his first role with Hilton Worldwide as F&B manager, and brings more than 15 years’ food and beverage experience to the hotel. During his debut at the upscale AlRayyan Hotel Doha, Lamine will oversee the operation of five restaurants, five meeting rooms and a Grand Ballroom, as well as manage all outside catering services. Throughout his career, Othmane has enjoyed a long list of successes, including the award-winning brunch concepts he developed between 2010 and 2015.
