21 November 2022

Michel Bouic has taken the reigns as General Manager of The Marine Hotel in Hermanus. Bouic joins The Liz McGrath Collection after 15 years at Bushmans Kloof in the Cederberg. Born into a French Mauritian family with a professional chef as father, hosting and entertaining came naturally to Bouic 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 Bushmans Kloof, followed by his appointment there as Assistant Front Office Manager.

Over the past fifteen years Bouic developed a solid track record in the luxury hospitality industry, steadily climbing the career ladder to hold various management positions at Bushmans Kloof, ranging from Food & Beverage and Operations, to Private Villa Manager. This led to his promotion to Deputy General Manager, a position he held for the past three years. At The Marine his goal is to further enhance the luxury guest experience by means of motivating and inspiring his team to reach even greater heights.

Set in an iconic, cliff-hugging location in one of South Africa’s favourite seaside towns, The Marine Hotel was honoured recently with a placement as one of the top 15 hotels in all of Southern Africa. Earning an impressive 13th place in the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards motivates The Marine team to continue stiving for excellence.
