Six Senses Uluwatu, Bali Welcomes Michael Gaehler as Its New General Manager

With an extensive experience within the high-end hospitality sector, Michael Gaehler is excited to put in his best effort in this stylish and sustainable resort

Perched on a cliff with sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, Six Senses Uluwatu, Bali, welcomes guests at their elegant accommodations and luxurious facilities. This magnificent resort has just recently welcomed its newest member Michael Gaehler as the general manager. With more than 33 years of experience in the luxury hospitality sector, Michael’s credentials include Regent Hotels & Resorts, managing the group’s hotels and resorts in Montenegro, Taiwan, China and Indonesia. Most recently, he was the general manager of the Oriental Residences Bangkok.

Upon graduating from the Swiss Hotel Management School Belvoirpark, Michael started his career in hospitality as a chef in his hometown of Zurich, Switzerland. Later on, he shifts to broader F&B roles at some of Europe’s leading boutique hotels, namely Villa il Tessoro in Tuscany, Hotel Le Vieux Manoir in Murten and Hotel Giardino in Ascona. Moving to Asia, Michael first joined Jia Boutique Hotel in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, and then joined General Hotel Management (GHM), initially worked at The Chedi Chiang Mai (now Anantara Chiang Mai Resort and Spa), before assisting with the launch of GHM’s Ananti Kumgang Mountains in North Korea (now ceased operating due to border closure).

Michael began his hotel career as a chef in his home town of Zurich, Switzerland after graduating from the Swiss Hotel Management School Belvoirpark, transitioning to broader food and beverage roles at some of Europe’s leading boutique hotels such as Villa il Tessoro in Tuscany, Hotel Le Vieux Manoir in Murten and Hotel Giardino in Ascona

Michael, who is a dog lover, is also an avid traveller who enjoyed exploring many cultures and their food, not to mention Bali, which has the best local markets with the freshest produce, together with the archipelago’s diverse choice of cuisine. Michael has a passion for cooking whenever time allows, and being a true Swiss, he enjoys the occasional temptation of good cheese, wine and chocolate. His favourite quote is from author Peter Drucker: “Quality in a service or product is not what you put into it. It is what the customer gets out of it.”
