Federico Mantoani has recently been appointed as General Manager of Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi,UAE. Having been a part of many Hyatt properties the world over, Federico brings with him some insightful hospitality know-how and a keen understanding of Hyatt values.

After graduating from the International Lycee in Paris, he moved to the US where he consolidated his studies at the University of Hawaii.

He has been with the Hyatt Hotels Corporation for over seventeen years, and has a wealth of experience in the opening and establishing new hotels.

He supported the opening of Hyatt Regency Le Barsey in Brussels, and soon afterwards was given the opportunity to join the opening team of Grand Hyatt Dubai. Two years later he transferred to Amman, Jordan as Director of F&B, and in 2006 he moved to Grand Hyatt Muscat, where in 2009 he was appointed Executive Assistant Manager in charge of Food & Beverage.

During the summer of 2010, Federico was a part of the pre-opening team of Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi. His last pre-opening assignment before being appointed as General Manager in Gurgaon was at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa, in the capacity of acting General Manager, and was responsible for the takeover and re-branding of the Resort.

Federico, who recently moved to the Capital with his wife Isabel and their two children, said, “I am delighted to return to Abu Dhabi after a short stint in India, and I am excited to see the overwhelming transformation that has taken place in the city. I certainly look forward to leading the passionate and dynamic team of the Park Hyatt, and live up to the promise of consistently delivering exceptional and memorable experiences to all our Guests.”
