Director of Marketing Communications
Born in Singapore, Geetha has had, from a young age a fire in her to travel and in the years after her education she naturally and happily settled into a career in line with her interest, the hospitality and tourism industry. Having graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Political Science and History degree, she first dabbled in the publishing and conferencing industries.
But nothing could keep her away from what was meant to be and her first foray into the hotel industry was with The Raffles Group, heading the Marketing Communications department.
Geetha gained an extremely good foundation in corporate brand marketing, having executed marketing for the hotels and resorts under the Raffles brand as well as the InterContinental Hotel Group. Thereafter, her desire to learn more about marketing communications on an operational and hotel level led her to hold the position of Director of Marketing Communications at Fullerton Singapore and Four Seasons Bali.
Her experience includes a great opportunity presented to her in developing a pre-opening marketing plan for the launching of The St. Regis Bali. It was at these hotel brands that her extensive and significant strategic experience in marketing communications and public relations was built.
Most recently, before Lifestyle Retreats, Geetha did a stint at Loama Resorts Maldives as well as Park Hotel Farrer Park in Singapore.
Geetha has a gregarious character which explains her joy in working in the hotel industry where interpersonal skills is paramount. When she is not working, she can be seen exercising to keep fit as well as spending quality time with her son at the movies, travelling or exploring newly opened restaurants.
