(New York, NY – April 13, 2007) Corinthia Hotels recently appointed a new General Manager, Sylvain Chauvet, for the four-star Corinthia Atlantic Hotel in Banjul, The Gambia, West Africa.

Mr. Chauvet brings with him almost ten years of travel industry experience in Africa, having just come from Zanzibar, Tanzania where he was General Manager at Karafuu, a five-star beach resort, for five years. Prior to that he spent four years as Director and Operations Manager for Tanganyika Wildlife Safari Company in Arusha, Tanzania. Mr. Chauvet speaks Swahili, French, English and Spanish.

The Corinthia Atlantic Hotel is located along the charming Atlantic Ocean coastline of The Gambia,an English speaking country known as the “Smiling Face of West Africa”. The property is just minutes from the country’s capital center of Banjul. Lavish landscaping, a private beach and a health and fitness center and outdoor pool are among its amenities. The recently refurbished four-star hotel, with over 200 rooms and suites, has a nightclub, five bars and three fine dining restaurants and a casual buffet on the premises. An ideal destination for the business traveler, the Corinthia Atlantic Hotel offers state-of-the-art meeting and conference facilities for up to 450 individuals. Corinthia Atlantic Hotel has been named the Gambia's “leading hotel” by the World Travel Awards for two consecutive years, 2005 & 2006.

According to Mr. Chauvet, “It is our staff, who reflect the special 'spirit of Corinthia,' that distinguishes the Corinthia Atlantic Hotel from other properties in Banjul. I am pleased with the comments I receive on a daily basis from our guests about the friendliness of our hotel staff. This past March, our customer survey form reflected this with a 97% guest satisfaction rate. At Corinthia, staff training focuses on team work and supporting each other, which then has a positive impact on how they interact with the guests."

The Gambia is a unique, beautiful country located mid way between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator. Once a place infamous for its slave trade, it is now an oasis of freedom, with almost no crime or pollution, and especially friendly local individuals. Its weather is spectacular year ‘round, its wildlife abundant and its splendid sandy beaches are uncrowded and unspoiled.
