Hilton Ras Al Khaimah welcomes new GM

RAS AL KHAIMAH, September 24, 2018

Helen Jacobe has been appointed as general manager of Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa, overseeing all commercial and operational aspects of the iconic beachfront property.

Jacobe is a seasoned hotelier with over 30 years of experience, notably in large food and beverage operations and in leading development projects.

Helen joins the resort hotel following her role as cluster general manager of Myanmar, overseeing the openings and operations of Hilton Nay Pyi Taw, Hilton Ngapali Resort & Spa and Hilton Mandalay. Her role included establishing Hilton’s first presence in Myanmar, including the sales office in Yangon and an award-winning vocational training school for the fledgeling industry in that country.

Originally from Australia, Jacobe has worked in Thailand, Singapore, several locations in Indonesia, Malaysia and Japan in addition to Myanmar and was recently honoured with the 'Women in Leadership' award for all of APAC.

‘I am excited to be in a new region and particularly in such a well-established property and together with the team and owning company look forward to evolving it further,’ said Jacobe.

This year Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort and Spa has been nominated for the best renovation project of the year for the Middle East Hospitality Awards. The lifestyle concept, far away from the traditional bed and breakfast accommodation selection, has revitalised the property with the introduction of 151 brand new villa rooms, some with private pools and two brand new outlets, namely “Sol Beach Lounge & Bar” - with its absolute beachfront and “Al Maeda” – the slick new contemporary Lebanese restaurant. - TradeArabia News Service
