Prior to joining Centara, he served as assistant vice-president at Shangri-La Circle and also worked for several five-star hotels in Shanghai, China.

Li said: “I am excited to join Centara Reserve Samui and contribute my expertise in hospitality to this esteemed property. I look forward to leading the team and furthering this stunning resort’s reputation for exquisite luxury and personalised travel.”

Maximising knowledge of  the local market

Jansson, on the other hand, takes pride in nearly three decades in the hospitality sector, having held leadership roles with leading brands like Hyatt and Shangri-La in fourteen countries.
