DINNER PLAIN, Australia (JANUARY 19, 2017) – Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific is pleased to announce the appointment of Ryan Ennis to the position of resort manager at the recently opened Ramada Resort Dinner Plain, Mt Hotham, situated in Victoria’s High Country.
Wyndham announced the purchase of Peppers Rundells Alpine Lodge and up to 30 chalets in Dinner Plain village in December last year.
Given its remote location in the Victorian Alps, the resort presents an opportunity for a couple with strong hospitality pedigree to lead. Ryan’s fiancée, Maria Salvatierra – who also has an impressive career in the sector – will join him in February as the resort’s Assistant Manager.
Ryan has been employed by Wyndham for more than two years, where he excelled in the roles of Assistant Manager and Front Office Manager of Wyndham Hotel Melbourne.
He has also held further management and supervisory roles in Australia and New Zealand, including Food and Beverage Manager and Night Manager. Ryan was recently named the Australasian hotel industry’s best Front Office Associate at last year’s Hotel Management Awards.
Maria has previously worked as an Assistant Manager, Front Office Duty Manager and Reservations Manager in Australia and New Zealand, over a period of eight years.
Regional Director of Operations Australia, David Brown, said Ryan and Maria had the necessary skills to make Ramada Dinner Plain an excellent experience for guests.
“We have seen for ourselves Ryan’s skills in major aspects of hotel management, including managing staff, auditing, food and beverage, reservations, budgeting and, crucially, providing memorable experiences for guests. We are confident that Ryan and Maria together are the right team to officially launch Ramada Dinner Plain and build a reputation of excellence for the resort,” he said.
Located 10 minutes’ drive from Mount Hotham, the award-winning village of Dinner Plain features an alpine bar, restaurant, lounge, open fireplace and proximity to the region’s best attractions.
The resort’s chalets range from one-bedroom to four-bedroom presidential and, while they differ in size and layout, are all inspired by the cattlemen’s huts of the high country, with stone and wood finishes, fireplaces and pitched corrugated iron rooves.
