Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba has welcomed Sami Ounalli as its new resort manager.
The Tunisian hotelier gained his in-depth hospitality and leadership experience over the last 20 years at hotels and travel agencies across the Middle East and Africa.
Ounalli began his career by managing sales and marketing activities at Tunisia’s Dar Jerba hotel complex, followed by his appointment as director of sales and marketing of Odyssée Resort & Thalasso Spa.
In 2010, he joined Radisson Hotel Group in Tunisia, first as director of sales and marketing and later as executive assistant manager.
Before joining Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, his final assignments for Radisson Blu were as hotel manager in Rwanda and Chad, where he led the pre-opening team.
On his new role, Ounalli commented: “I am pleased to join the team and excited to bring new ideas and creativity to the fore.”
