MY STORY | DOMINIK J. BABEL
Dominik Babel lived and worked in some of the best hotels in the world, and he thus knows exactly what's needed for a true dream holiday.
A passion for travel runs in his family. Thanks to his parents' enthusiasm for travel and adventure, Dominik got to know the world and fascinating exotic places at an early age. This is probably the reason why his own enthusiasm for special hotels started in his childhood.
Even then his dream job was "hotel director". Today he is not confined to hotels, he has put together an entire portfolio for his guests.
"I regularly visit our resorts and can tell you with certainty at what time of the year and from which direction the wind blows or the flow of the current", the founder of Elegant Travel assures us.
At the age of 15 I started my hotel management training in the traditional Hotel Platzl at the Platzl in Munich. Then I graduated from grammar school and completed a degree in hotel administration in Regensburg. I started my professional career as the "right hand" in Zürs in the leading hotel Thurnhers Alpenhof. After one year at Marriott Resorts International I moved to One& Only Resorts in the Maldives. I lived and worked there for 5 ½ years until June 2012. Then the time had come for me to make my long-held wish come true and become a self-employed travel concierge.
I look forward to this great new challenge – and I look forward to meeting you!"
