Marking his return to Meads Bay, Rolf Masshardt joins the Carimar team as General Manager. He spent the past 8 years managing boutique hotels in his native Switzerland. Many will remember Rolf as former developer, owner and manager of La Sirena on the west end of Meads Bay for nearly 20 years. He and his wife, Viviane, have a large network of friends and former employees that they continued to see on their annual visits and they are thrilled to be back on Anguilla full time. Their two children, ages 22 and 26, attended the local schools and still have many friends here.
“When I heard that Carimar was looking for a General Manager, it immediately caught my attention,” said Rolf recently. “Living here for more than 20 years on the same gorgeous Meads Bay as Carimar, this opportunity to manage one of the best situated resorts in Anguilla was too good to pass up. I’ve loved the island and the people of Anguilla for so many years. This just seemed the right time move back to our second home.”
Rolf had high praise for Fred Thompson and the entire staff. He noted, “Carimar was always very well managed and has been a steady icon in the Hospitality industry of Anguilla. It has a long-tenured staff that provides exceptional service and a large number of repeat guests. The owners have continued to invest in updating the units. Under Fred Thompson’s long stewardship, the property is beautiful and in great shape.”
