Oh Danny Boy, The Thais, the Thais are Calling

'Danny' McCafferty Departs Bali to Head Dusit Thani Hotel in Bangkok.

(1/15/2007) Popular expatriate General Manager and Bali aficionado Daniel McCafferty is ending eight-years at the helm of the 381-room Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa to assume the general manager's role at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Bangkok.

The native Dubliner brings back to Bangkok a long and distinguished career as a leading Asian hotelier. Commencing his Asia sojourn as the Resident Manager at the Oriental Bangkok under the legendary Kurt Wachtveitl, McCafferty also served as the General Manager of The Jakarta Mandarin and in the top jobs for eight years at the Dusit Thani who have lured him back to Bangkok for his latest assignment.

On a corporate level, McCafferty worked for 2 years as the Vice-President with the Aduley Group, the Sultan of Brunei's hotel company which owned The Dorchester Group, The Nusa Dua Bali, The Grand Hyatt Singapore, The Royal Plaza Singapore and The Empire in Brunei.

Prior to moving to Asia, Daniel McCafferty served as a Resident Manager in the Middle East and as Deputy General Manager for The Hyde Park in London.

While eager to meet new challenges ahead, McCafferty said he will sorely miss his adopted home of Bali, its people and the close-knit team at the Nusa Dua Beach, vowing to visit Bali again at every opportunity.

Replacing McCafferty at the Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa, effective January 12, 2007, is Swiss-national Reto Torriani, who has previous experience in Bali as the Manager the then Chedi Ubud and was most recently the Resort Manger at Cheeca Lodge in Florida (USA).
