Matthew Maynard Appointed as Food & Beverage Operations Manager at Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai

“You never have the same day twice and it’s certainly not static”.

Nikki Beach Resort and Spa Dubai has appointed a rising star in hospitality, Matthew Maynard, as Food and Beverage Operations Manager.

Matthew previously worked in virtually every aspect of the restaurant industry, experiencing each facet on his meteoric rise, from behind the bar to overseeing and managing grand openings of multinational branded venues. Like many areas within the hospitality industry, Matthew relishes the aspect that there is no such thing as a typical, 9 to 5 day on the job. "You never have the same day twice and its certainly not static".

If you're looking for a place where "everybody knows your name", chances are, Matthew's the man behind it. As a quiet yet genuinely charismatic figure, Matthew realised that, despite a year full of surprises within the restaurant business, simple pleasures and heartfelt hospitality matter now more than ever. Matthew approaches both guests and peers alike, with a palpable camaraderie, ensuring a welcoming environment that emanates positivity and teamwork. He understands the value of combining good ideas with great execution in order to ensure the very best experience for his guests and this is all brought on by the combined efforts of a dedicated team.

Matthew's professional ability has given him the opportunity to not only travel the world (hello, Dubai!) and add to his growing repertoire, but also meet various interesting people from diverse backgrounds that aligns brilliantly with his already lively personality. Ultimately, at an iconic property as Nikki Beach Resort and Spa Dubai, Matthew aims to present purposeful work that yields lasting memories.

Nikki Beach Resort andSpa Dubai is the perfect fit for Matthew's adventurous character, as he is an avid water-sports devotee, literally diving headfirst in the deep waters as a master scuba diver. A sailing and rugby enthusiast, Matthew is a man who can talk at length about his sporting passions.

What can Nikki Beach Resort and Spa Dubai's guests expect from the newly minted Food and Beverage Operations Manager? A larger than life welcome with humour and integrity. Along with his appreciation for the resort's focus on sustainable dining and the creation of novelty tasting menus, courtesy of renowned Chef Claudio Cardoso, Matthew will also be at the helm of introducing a new beverage and specialty cocktail list at Soul Lounge. Above all else, Matthew will be at the forefront of experiencing Nikki Beach's much-treasured ethos and that is to 'celebrate life'.
