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.
