Malliouhana, Auberge Resorts Collection is pleased to announce the appointment of Kapil Sharma as general manager of the iconic Anguillan luxury resort overlooking the sugar-white sands of Meads Bay and Turtle Cove. A legacy hospitality leader and Caribbean native with over 20 years of industry experience and a keen sense for culinary development, Sharma will embrace Malliouhana‘s deep ties to Anguilla while breathing new life into the property’s legendary guest and dining experiences.
The son of a luxury hotelier in Canada, Sharma found his passion for travel and hospitality at a young age, and then as both a certified FAA commercial pilot and a restaurant chef. Prior to joining Auberge Resorts Collection, Sharma served as hotel manager for Marriott International Hotels and Resorts where he managed a variety of top-performing properties including Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C. and The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. Previously, Sharma lent his industry ingenuity to various luxury properties and brands around the world, from serving as the vice president of operations at Kerzner International’s Atlantis Bahamas to vice president and assistant corporate director of FB operations at Sandals and Beaches Resorts International. Eager to make a meaningful impact at each property he touched, Sharma quickly graduated from assistant director of food and beverage at Sandals Beaches Resorts in Montego Bay, Jamaica in his early career to the face of one of the most prominent Caribbean resorts in history.
Sharma graduated with honors from the University of the West Indies with a bachelor of science in hotel management, and later received his Executive Leadership and Global Hospitality Certification from Cornell University in February 2009. An aviation enthusiast, he spends his free time navigating the skies as a pilot. Sharma got his start in hospitality while working at a restaurant and credits his father, a former luxury hotelier in Canada, for sparking his interest in the industry.
