Raffles Jakarta welcomed new General Manager Yves Mudry with an enchanting evening pool party at the Raffles Jakarta’s chic Navina Pool Bar on 17th May. Two-hundred media partners and VIP guests were treated to a sultry evening of live music performances and canapés of beef, tuna, mushroom and lobster pastries accompanied by chilled juices and champagnes.
A short introduction speech by Yves opened the evening of celebrations, in which guests mingled and chatted with the new general manager. Swiss-born Yves studied at the prestigious Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne and the Glion Institute of Higher Education before setting off on his journey as an hotelier, which has taken him across Asia to Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Fresh off a hugely successful stint as general manager at the luxurious SO Sofitel Bangkok, Yves is excited to embark on a new challenge at Raffles Jakarta. Guests can look forward to Yves elevating Raffles Jakarta’s legendary reputation even further and cementing its reputation as the best hotel in Indonesia.
