“I have every confidence Bugra will bring with him the same passion and professionalism that has made him such a respected and accomplished hotelier. He will be an asset to Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea and I have no doubt he will continue the property’s fantastic performance and enhance its position as the region’s favourite luxury wellness destination,”

After graduating from the Ecôle Hôtelière de Lausanne, Berberoglu embarked on his career in the hospitality sector gaining valuable experience in the North American market at both city and resort hotels with InterContinental, prior to joining Kempinski as pre-opening and opening General Manager in Chad.

A Turkish national, Bugra speaks fluent English, French and Turkish.
