BHMA Hotels & Resorts has appointed Steve Lockhart as cluster general manager of the X2 Pattaya Oceanphere and X2 Vibe Pattaya Seaphere.
Steve, a Belfast-born hospitality expert, has almost two decades of hospitality industry experience, having worked in destinations as diverse as Kenya, Papua New Guinea, Saudi Arabia, China, Laos and Malaysia.
He moves to Pattaya from X2 Kui Buri, another BHMA resort near Hua Hin, where he was also GM.
“We are delighted to introduce Steve Lockhart to X2 Pattaya Oceanphere and X2 Vibe Pattaya Seaphere, our two stunning resorts on Thailand’s pristine Eastern Seaboard. Since Steve joined BHMA Hotels & Resorts we have been hugely impressed by his ability to lead and motivate his teams, maintain high standards and form strong relationships with guests. He also has a strong background in launching new hotels, which makes him the perfect person to lead X2 Pattaya Oceanphere as it approaches its highly-anticipated opening early next year,” said Harry Thaliwal Executive Vice President Operations of BHMA Hotels & Resorts.
