Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific has appointed seasoned hotelier Bruce Dupuis to oversee daily operations at the 181-room Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket in Thailand.
Managed by Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific, the resort is a mixed-use property that offers upscale accommodation to resort guests and spacious timeshare apartments to almost 60,000 WorldMark South Pacific Club vacation owners and Club Wyndham Asia members.
Dupuis has held leadership positions at upscale properties across the globe, from Central and South East Asia to the Middle East and Africa including the InterContinental Tashkent in Uzbekistan, Sheraton Oman Hotel and Crowne Plaza Hotel Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt.
Michael Burchett, Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific head of Hotel & Resort Operations Asia Pacific, said Dupuis’ excellent leadership style, innovative ideas and ability overseeing luxury properties complement the skills and expertise of staff at Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket.
“Bruce brings with him a wealth of experience across all areas of resort operations, including food and beverage, marketing and sales management, all of which are valuable assets to the business,” he explained.
“We are confident that his knowledge and skills, learned from more than 20 years in numerous international upscale properties, will drive even better guest experiences.”
Dupuis joins Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific after working at Marriott International as Cluster general manager overseeing the luxury resorts of Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa and Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas in Thailand.
Before moving to Thailand, he worked as resident manager at JW Marriott Hotel Changfeng Park and general manager of the Courtyard by Marriott Pudong in Shanghai, China.

Guests are only a short drive from the bustling beachside town yet can also choose to enjoy a secluded time away from the tourist strip.
