With an international experience and service-oriented, Jean-Marc will put his expertise to make this resort a reference in the Mauritian hotel industry.

Aged 44 he is Suisse and Chinese.

I am happy to welcome him to Mauritius and am confident that his dynamism and his extensive hotel experience will be great assets for Long Beach.
