French national Philippe Cavory, who has four decades of experience in the luxury hospitality industry across four continents, has been appointed General Manager of the award-winning The Anam.

He comes to the 12-ha resort on Vietnam’s pristine Cam Ranh Peninsula after four years with YTL Hotels, during which he oversaw a collection of five-star resorts in Malaysia as area general manager.

Mr. Cavory brings a stellar background in luxury hospitality to the independently-owned and operated The Anam, having worked in senior management roles for some of the industry’s most prestigious names, including Cheval Blanc Randheli and Soneva Fushi in the Maldives, Banyan Tree properties in the Maldives, Morocco and Laos, and at LUX Grand Gaube in Mauritius.

In addition to Asia and Africa, his career has taken him across Europe and to the US. Along with hotel management, he also has substantial experience with hotel openings and renovations.

After starting out with hotel management studies at the acclaimed École Hôtelière du Comte de Nice in his native France in the early 80s, Mr. Cavory studied further with the Wine & Spirit Education Trust based in London. He became a sommelier when based in Miami with Royal Caribbean Cruises and then an F&B consultant for the Eastern and Oriental Express in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, before rising through the ranks at various luxury hotels.

He has won numerous awards, including “Outstanding General Manager” at the 2017 Asian Lifestyle Tourism Awards.

Mr. Cavory said he will bring his passion for working alongside many nationalities in the luxury sector and enthusiasm for developing and mentoring executives, teams, and business units to The Anam, which has established a reputation as one of Vietnam’s top coastal resorts since its grand opening in April 2017.

The resort overlooks 300 meters of beachfront on scenic Cam Ranh Peninsula, which averages more than 300 sunny days a year. With a design inspired by the bygone Indochine era, the luxurious five-star resort boasts 77 villas and 136 rooms and suites.
