New South Kensington boutique hotel Xenia is delighted to announce the appointment of Mario Ovsenjak as General Manager.
Mario brings his breadth of experience to this exciting new hotel: with a hospitality career that started in London with Thistle Hotels at both Thistle Piccadilly and The Royal Trafalgar as Food & Beverage Manager, Mario has also worked as Operations Manager at InterContinental Hotels Group and at Corus Hyde Park where he re-focused the hotel’s food and beverage offering, maximised HOD team efficiency and demonstrated his passion for customer service.
A step into boutique hotels and the luxury sector followed when Mario joined the Eton Collection at The Colonnade and, keen to continue to develop smaller properties, is now to head up the hotel team at the independently-owned Xenia. Mario says:
‘I am looking forward to working with our growing dynamic team to launch Xenia which will be an exciting addition to both the neighbourhood and the London hotel scene. With an increasing number of new hotel rooms in the city it is as important as ever that we stand-out from the competition and I will enjoy working with the team to ensure that our offering at Xenia becomes a destination of choice for both locals and visitors to the Capital.’
