Experienced hospitality executive Kashmie Ali, who has spent 25 years in corporate leadership, has returned to St. Lucia as the new managing director of The Landings St. Lucia.
The Caribbean hospitality professional previously spent nine years in St. Lucia as the regional director of operations with Sandals Resorts and then later as vice president of operations with Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet resorts in the former colonial capital of Soufriere.
Ali returns to St. Lucia following a five-year stint helping to turn around the fortunes of Sugar Bay Beach Resort and Spa in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, while on assignment with The Moinian Group, one of the largest privately held real estate firms in the United States.
Ali has amassed more than two decades of executive leadership experience, beginning at the age of 24 when he was appointed general manager with Texas-based hotels and resorts management company American General Hospitality.
A native of Trinidad and Tobago, Ali said many exciting developments are taking place at The Landings, including a renewed commitment to culinary excellence, new butler service and new forays into both the bridal and meetings and incentives markets.
