Tim Bathke has been appointed as the new area general manager of Warwick Fiji and its properties.

Mr Bathke’s appointment is part of four new appointments at Warwick Hotels and Resorts Fiji.

The properties he will be in charge of include the Warwick Fiji, The Naviti Resort, Tambua Sands Beach Resort on the Coral Coast in Sigatoka and the Tokatoka Resort in Nadi.

Mr Bathke will provide support to the management teams at each property and directly overlook operations at The Naviti Resort.

He was previously general manager for six years at Warwick Seattle, where, under his leadership, the hotel grew to exceed both operational and commercial expectations.

Gregory Montens was also recently appointed rooms division manager for Warwick Fiji with the aim to enhance guest experiences and front of house operations for the resort.

Mr Montens has worked in similar roles in Belgium, Maldives and United States of America with brands like Hilton, The Hay Adams Hotel, Kuramathi Resorts and Warwick Hotels and Resorts Europe.

Warwick Fiji also announced the appointment of executive chef, Khedr Al Issa and executive sous chef, Abbass Fawaz.

The duo are eager to enhance existing food offerings with fresh concepts and international flair having worked in many destinations including Malaysia, Vietnam and most recently Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The resort expects the recent appointments to further enrich the resorts stellar reputation in destination dining.

Three of the resorts five restaurants are ranked top five in Fiji by TripAdvisor among 408 Restaurants listed within the destination.

“Fiji is a beautiful destination and our most unique offering is the Bula Spirit which is still alive and well on the Coral Coast,” Mr Bathke said.

“This spirit coupled with our location on the famous Coral Coast with its easy access to the local culture, blue waters and white sands makes for a true Fijian experience.

“Our Fiji resorts have commanded significant RevPar growth this year.

“I am confident we have the right team in place to take Warwick Hotels and Resorts, Fiji to new levels of excellence.”
