Deasy in Charge of Luxury

Balinese Woman Appointed to Head Prestigious Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in Ubud

(10/8/2017) General Hotel Management Ltd (GHM) have promoted a Balinese hotelier, Deasy Swandarini, to the top job at the exclusive 20-villa Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in Ubud, Bali located near Bali’s iconic 9th century Goa Gajah Temple.

Prior to joining GHM, Swandarini has filled senior roles in sales, marketing and revenue management with a number of luxury properties, including the Kayumanis Nusa Dua, The Royal Santrian Luxury Beach Villas, The Mulia and The Ritz-Carlton.

Most recently serving as the General Manager of Kamandalu Ubud, Deasy is credited with successfully repositioning via a rebranding exercise. She also introduced a new bespoke butler service at the resort.

Referring to the owners of the resort, Hans R. Jenni, director and president of GHM, said: “Like the Hadiprana family, we look upon this resort more like a home; we know our guests and staff feel likewise. We believe that an individual like Deasy would be an excellent fit for this distinctive resort: she has a sparkling personality that makes her the perfect host, great connections with the local market, and she’s backed by a diverse experience working with both local and international hotel chains… she will be a great ambassador for The Chedi Club in Ubud.”

The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in Ubud used to be the former holiday home of the Hadiprana family, built more than 30 years ago by its patriarch, Hendra Hadiprana. The private estate houses the extensive art collection of the Indonesian architect and maintains a strong relationship with the villagers.

“From the moment you set foot in The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, you can sense the soul of this place and you’d realize what a special place this is. It is a privilege to be tasked to manage this resort, especially as its first local GM, and I am looking forward to welcoming more guests to experience this haven,” says Deasy.
