The St. Regis Jakarta Welcomes Marc Handl as General Manager

The St. Regis Jakarta is pleased to announce the appointment of Marc Handl as General Manager for the highly anticipated hotel opening in Jakarta. With more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Marc brings an unparalleled delivery in quality of standards and leadership to The St. Regis Jakarta and The Residences at The St. Regis Jakarta.

A third-generation hospitality leader, Marc’s family lived in a hotel for the first 25 years of his life. This gave him the opportunity to observe and learn from the professionals early on, and he worked as a cook, server, and bellboy during his school breaks. Marc’s passion is inspired by his father and role model, Richard Handl, a well-respected and influential figure in the hospitality industry. Becoming a hotelier came naturally for Marc as he has always been surrounded by many lauded hospitality leaders.

Focused and ambitious, Marc graduated from the leading hospitality management and business schools including Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, Cornell University, and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, where he obtained his master of business administration degree.

Marc started his career as an assistant restaurant manager, working his way to Director of Food and Beverage, before moving into Sales and Marketing roles. Marc’s experience in luxury hotel brands consists of Park Hyatt, Peninsula, The Ritz-Carlton, and Aman. Recent senior leadership roles were Regional Vice President at Rosewood Hotel Group and Vice President Operations at Pan Pacific Hotel Group. Marc believes in building a “winning team spirit” that he incorporates in his coaching leadership style to develop excellent, energetic, and dedicated teams.

“I am honored and privileged to be a member of The St. Regis Jakarta team, and excited to be working with a wonderful group of passionate professionals,” said Marc. “Together with our team, I am looking forward to bringing the iconic heritage of the St. Regis brand to Jakarta, and to creating a new benchmark of exquisite experiences for our guests at The St. Regis Jakarta.”

Marc will lead the team, elevating the legendary culture of the St. Regis brand and positioning The St. Regis Jakarta as the best destination for discerning travelers and epicureans to experience unparalleled service and gourmet excellence. Located at the best address within the three main business districts, The St. Regis Jakarta is destined to be the cultural soul theatre of the city.

A reflection of the warmest Indonesian hospitality, the hotel offers 282 luxurious rooms, a wide array of food and beverage venues, including The St. Regis Bar, two large ballrooms, and The St. Regis Spa. The Residences at The St. Regis Jakarta consist of 164 of Jakarta’s most luxurious apartments and penthouses. Both properties will experience the renowned and signature St. Regis Butler service.
