Cygnett Appoints Roberto Pelliccia as Vice President of Development & Operations

(06 Aug 2021)
Cygnett Hotels & Resorts has appointed Roberto
Pelliccia as Vice President of Development & Operations – Asia and
Africa.

Roberto, an alumnus of Cornell School of Hotel
Administration, has three decades of experience in the hospitality
industry, primarily within operations, asset management,
pre-opening and opening, re-branding and development.


His career has taken him on key assignments
with a variety of hotel groups such as InterContinental, Hilton,
Sun, Kerzner, SuperClubs, Meritus, Grace and Latitude.

Roberto’s first General Manager assignment was at
Le Coco Beach Hotel in Mauritius with Kerzner International. After
spending nine and a half years in Mauritius, Roberto moved to
Jamaica with SuperClubs as General Manager of the Grand Lido
Negril & Spa, an AAA 4-Diamond resort. He spent just over two
years there, before joining Meritus Hotels & Resorts as GM of the
Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort and Spa in Langkawi, Malaysia.

In July 2011, Roberto joined Grace Hotels Group,
the hospitality subsidiary of the Libra Group, as Group Director
of Operations for USA, Argentina, China, Greece, Panama and
Thailand, before moving to The Latitude Hotels Group in October
2016 as CEO for Africa, his most recent assignment prior to
Cygnett.

Based in Bangkok, Roberto is responsible for
leading Cygnett’s business development and operations in Southeast
Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. Currently the company has over 1,100
keys across 33 locations in India and Nepal, including 15 in
pre-opening, and is looking for opportunities to expand to
Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, as well as
sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and Europe.
