Michel Bouic heads up the team at The Marine Hotel as General Manager. Born into a French Mauritian family with a professional chef as father, hosting and entertaining came naturally to Michel as he developed a keen interest in the hospitality industry from an early age. He studied at the International Hotel School and spent the first two years of his career as Hospitality Trainee at The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa in Cape Town. Staying within the Red Carnation Collection, he completed his training at the award-winning Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Retreat in the Cederberg, followed by his first professional appointment there as Assistant Front Office Manager. Over the past 15 years Michel had developed a solid track record in the luxury hospitality industry and acquired invaluable knowledge and experience, including a passion and appreciation for food, wine and service excellence. At Bushmans Kloof he steadily climbed the career ladder, holding various management positions that ranged from Food & Beverage, and Operations, to Private Villa Manager. This led to his promotion as Deputy General Manager, a position he held for three years. During that time, he further honed his managements skills, achieving much success in enhancing the luxury guest experience by means of motivating and inspiring his team to reach even greater heights. Michel and his family relocated to Hermanus in November 2022, where he took up the position of General Manager of The Marine Hotel.
