The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain has appointed Jean-Paul Dantil as general manager, who brings over two decades of hospitality industry experience with him.

Dantil will be in charge of the hotel’s overall performance and operations. He is expected to further contribute to the growth of The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain’s outreach within the local, regional and international markets.

Dantil transferred from The Ritz-Carlton in Vienna, where he held the position of general manager for two and a half years. The Argentinian-German national graduated from the Centre International de Glion in Montreux.


Prior to joining the Ritz-Carlton family, Dantil opened the acclaimed Das Stue hotel in Berlin, which was recently voted one of the top 10 hotels in Germany by Tripadvisor.

In 2002, Dantil and his partners opened up a successful hotel supply and procurement business in Dubai, giving him insight into the region’s hospitality scene.

Dantil spoke of his new position: “I am thrilled to join The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain. The Hotel is a remarkable property that I grew to admire and love during my previous stays as a guest, for its business and leisure travel offerings, beautiful outdoor landscape, fine art and culinary offerings. I look forward to working closely with the international Hotel Company in driving to the top of the Kingdom’s hospitality scene.”
