Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi, a concept by Hyatt, has announced the appointment of a new General Manager. Dominik Strobel is a brand stalwart and an award-winning business leader within the luxury hospitality sector. As GM, he will oversee the boutique 5-star hotel’s entire operations and usher in a new era of growth and expansion for Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi. 

From the UK and Kyiv to Abu Dhabi, Dominik worked across prestigious Hyatt properties across the world since he started his career almost two decades ago as the Director of Food and Beverage at Hyatt Regency, Johannesburg.

Next, he joined the Hyatt Regency’s Mainz, Germany where he continued his upward trajectory. As a growth-focused and mission-driven leader, Dominik moved up the ranks and joined Hyatt Regency Birmingham, UK, as Director of Operations. Spearheading key operations for the 319-room property, Dominik’s service excellence, sophisticated sales and marketing management, and innate capacity to cultivate strong relationships proved to be game-changing for the rapidly improving business volume for the luxury hotel. 

Serving Hyatt properties around the world

A few years later, Hyatt Place, West London, hired the ambitious hospitality leader as the hotel’s General Manager. Once again, Dominik proved his mettle by growing the property’s RevPar penetration, envisioning and enhancing a new dining experience, ‘Zoom’, which was then implemented in new Hyatt Place branded hotels throughout Europe. Dominik also helped bolster the luxury property’s contributions towards team cohesion, business growth, and community care, thus enabling Hyatt UK to become recognised as The Best Place to Work in the UK.

Over the next 3.5 years, Dominik held the reigns at Hyatt Regency, Kyiv, Ukraine, where his work ethics and leadership expertise helped secure the hotel’s position as the third most profitable property in the EMEA region’s portfolio and seventh in the world for the Hyatt Regency brand. Dominik also consistently attained record financial results across all the properties he managed.

Commenting on his new appointment at Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi, Dominik said, “Hyatt is a leader in excellent customer service and outstanding care. Abu Dhabi is leading global markets in hospitality by blending luxury, culture, and finesse. I look forward to imbibing all of this at Andaz. I’m very proud to be part of the group that has enabled so much of my own growth. Starting at Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi is an exciting way to begin the new year and I’m absolutely thrilled for the future.”

Known for its thoughtful service and distinctively local experience, Andaz takes guests beyond the familiar. With 25 Andaz hotels around the world, Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi stands at an impressive 18º leaning design and is a gateway to a truly luxury lifestyle.
