He will spearhead the culinary programmes at this property – including the new Nalu Bar and Grill – while also overseeing Outrigger Khao Lak Beach Resort.

Oddy has more than 20 years’ experience in hospitality, in small cafes, fine-dining restaurants, beach clubs, bars, resorts, private catering events and restaurant consulting.

His career has spanned three continents.

Joerg Hontheim will take the role of Area Director of Food and Beverage, Thailand, based in Phuket.

Hontheim is a Certified Master Chef.

He has held various positions with Marriott, Ritz Carlton, Renaissance and Grand Hyatt throughout Asia and the US.

“We are particularly excited for our guests to enjoy the resort’s private plunge-pool suites, split-level rooms and our new surf-inspired Nalu Bar & Grill,” he added.
