As one of the earliest hotels established in Indonesia, Hotel Borobudur Jakarta has become one of the most iconic and prestigious hotels in Jakarta since its inception almost fifty years ago. To throttle the historic five-star hotel into a bright and prosperous future, the hotel has announced the appointment of Gerhard L. Doll as its new General Manager to spearhead the executive management.
Gerhard brings with him over 25 years of experience in the luxury hospitality industry, which he gained throughout the years across ten countries, from Europe, North America and Asia, with top-tier brands such as The Peninsula, The Ritz-Carlton and The Mandarin Oriental Group. His last post for the past 4 years has been as General Manager of The Crimson Hotel in Filinvest City, Manila, before joining Hotel Borobudur Jakarta.
“We welcome Gerhard to the legendary Hotel Borobudur Jakarta. We are excited to have him lead the team forward and believe that his wealth of experience will be of tremendous benefit to both the hotel and its prestigious guests,” said Discovery Hotels and Resorts CEO, Judd Lehmann.
Originating from Germany, Gerhard is mainly focused on guest experiences, innovative products and trend settings, and has a mantra of “Great service should happen without guests knowing where it comes from.” Before he completed his Hotel Management Diploma at Cornell University, Gerhard initially came from a culinary background.
