Sanjay joined the hospitality industry in 2002 not intending to stay but was captivated by the dynamism and cultural experience that the industry provided. She started her career in Sales and Banqueting at the Grand Royal Antiguan Resort but since that period worked in various leadership roles with Occidental Hotels and Resorts, Sandals Resorts and Elite Island Resorts. As a Certified Revenue Manager and a Certified Destination Event Planner, her passion for helping customers experience their dreams directed her to Events and Resort Revenue planning.
In 2016, some 14 years after entering the industry, her hands-on disposition in accordance with her professional training and desire to move her career into a male dominated field, she accepted the challenge of Resort Manager of Pineapple Beach Club. Her focus on growing the resort through strategic partnerships and improved guest satisfaction ratings, recently earned her a promotion to the position of General Manager. Her aspiration is to achieve her goal of serving as the Director of Operations for a successful Hospitality group.
Sanjay is excited about this new challenge and shared that she could not think of a better way to demonstrate her gratitude to an industry that has created a desire to grow and serve others that might otherwise not have been discovered. She is eager to support the Executives and the current board of the AHTA to the ultimate benefit of Antigua & Barbuda’s tourism product”.
