La Samana Names New GM

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten – As part of our week-long coverage of the ninth annual SMART tradeshow in St. Maarten, Travel Agent sat down with representatives of La Samanna by Orient Express hotel in St. Martin, the French side of the country, and got the scoop on the property’s new general manager.

Pascal Deyrolle took over the position about two weeks ago, says Emmanuelle Cipriani, sales manager for the property. Deyrolle, who has worked for Orient Express for the last 18 years, takes over the position after working for an Orient Express property in Cambodia.

In other La Samana news, the property will be closing its doors from September to October for annual refurbishments.
