A 22-year hospitality industry veteran and third-generation hotelier, Chanet is a native of Deauville, France. Upon graduating with a Degree in Hospitality Business – Marketing & Finance from Hotel Savoie Leman in Thonon Les Baines, France, Chanet began his hospitality career as head waiter at the Michelin 2 star restaurant Le Gavroche in London.
From there, he returned to France, where he moved up the ranks with the Renaissance and Marriott brands in Paris in various reservations and revenue management positions, culminating with the role of cluster director of market revenue analysis. He remained in Paris with Le Meridien overseeing revenue management before moving with the brand to New Caledonia as hotel manager of the Il des Pins property.
Hooked on island life, Chanet then transferred to Seychelles as general manager of Le Meridien Fisherman’s Cove, and later in Indonesia, as general manager of Soori Bali. Prior to joining Four Seasons, Chanet had returned to New Caledonia as cluster general manager of Le Meridien Noumea and Le Meridien Il des Pins.
“It has been a dream to live and work in French Polynesia, and I would not do it anywhere other than this iconic Bora Bora resort,” says Romain Chanet, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. “With a newly-enhanced product and unmatched service, I look forward to leading our team into the future, and to delighting our guests with the ultimate in experiences and memory-making.”
