AYANA Resort and Spa Bali have appointed Ed Linsley as General Manager.
Linsley, a veteran industry leader with more than 22 years’ experience in hotels and resorts – 21 of which were with Four Seasons Hotels –was previously Resort Manager of Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay, before moving to Vietnam last year as General Manager of The Nam Hai Resort.
According to Linsley, He was lured back to Bali by its people, and the opportunity to be part of what he considers a most visionary and inspiring hotel management company - Capella Hotel Group.
“I missed the soul of Bali and the people, but it was really the Capella name which prompted me to leave Vietnam earlier than I had envisaged. It was what the Capella Hotel Group represents, the respect for the local people and the community – which is a very important element in my life – the culture of the company and their business ethics,” said Linsley, a Pennsylvania native with a strong background in food and beverage management.
Linsley said he was delighted to join the team at AYANA, a resort with which he was familiar and had visited often when he lived in Bali. “I used to come to AYANA and was always amazed by the scope of the property and the uniqueness of its offerings, from the iconic Rock Bar to the world’s largest Aquatonic Seawater Therapy Pool, the Spa on the Rocks, the Villas as a separate ‘resort within a resort’ to the main Hotel, the wedding chapels and the diversity and quality of its 12 dining venues. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this resort to continued success in the future,” he said.
A member of the World Affairs Council, Linsley is passionate about community welfare and devotes much of his personal time to helping those less fortunate. He is eager to resume his community activities in Bali, as well as explore more of the island on his Harley Davidson. An outdoors enthusiast, his interests include collecting art, travel, photography, cooking and sailing.
