来自雅加达太平洋广场丽思卡尔顿酒店的精彩的一天——One Fine Day for the Heroes of The Ritz-Carlton, Jakarta Pacific Place





One fine Saturday, a long staying guest went for a boat outing to an island located 90 minutes away from the main shore of Jakarta. Halfway, their 6 years old son had a seizure with strong convulsions and hallucinations in the middle of the sea. As this had never happened before, they were simply terrified. In total panic for this sudden dangerous situation and not knowing who else to contact, guest contacted the hotel and our GM, Karim Tayach.

Hotel team immediately went into action and organized the emergency measures by contacting different hospitals for an ambulance. Our MOD, Yuniati and EAM FB, Patrick Weder got the hotel nurse and jumped into a taxi to reach the harbor where the guests were heading back to. Hotel team was constantly in touch with the guest’s family as well as the ambulance.

As soon as guest arrived to the shore, the hotel team and the ambulance were on standby and immediately took the kid to the hospital. Patrick and the guests hopped into the ambulance while Yuni followed them with a taxi. Unexpectedly, there was a parade on their way to the hospital that caused heavy traffic jam. In this critical situation, Patrick jumped off the ambulance and arranged the traffic by himself to make way for the ambulance.

When they reached the hospital, the hotel team assisted the family to pass this difficult emotional moment as well as to co-ordinate with the local hospital about the proper medical care and action to be taken. At the same time, the General Manager escorted the family’s close friends from hotel to the hospital and ensured everything was under control. The Ladies & Gentlemen further assisted with the insurance papers, administration, the translation with the medical team, and even served some drinks to soothe the distressed family.

Initial tests were conducted and results were satisfactory. However the family decided to further continue the tests in main Jakarta hospital since the kid had his file and pediatrician there. Yuni escorted the family to the destined hospital and assisted them throughout the day. While waiting for the kid to come home, the GRA team prepared a full range of amenities including his favorite fruits, a Get Well Soon card signed by several L&G, and his favorite Dinosaurs toys.

The guests and his family expressed their gratitude by sending an email, saying

While no words can possibly express our feelings of deepest appreciation for what you have done, we felt that we must send you all a "Thank You From The Bottom Of Our Hearts" note in order to set the record straight. Not only an ambulance and nurse was arranged immediately, but also top management also showed up at the ER and supported us throughout this dreadful situation... I don't think we can ever thank you enough... What I do know, however, is that what you all have done for us cannot simply be taken for granted as part of your customer service. This sort of care can only be delivered by your closest of friends and family. What we lived through yesterday was awful, yet we are indeed comforted by your presence and care.

Thank you for being our family and making our home away from home.”

Steven Wang, bell attendant of Guangzhou Marriott Hotel Tianhe. He is one of the outstanding associates of the hotel’s Pre-opening period. He was on-boarded on February 27th, 2012. He’s working at the very front line of the hotel—concierge, and believing that every one of hotel associates needs to be outgoing, nice, have smile on the faces all the time, to create excellent service for our guests. In work place, he greets every guest, opens doors for them, and helps them with luggage. There was one particular story in one night during the recent Canton Fair : he saw a foreign guest sitting in JAVA+ (Lobby Lounge) with a mask, coughing from time to time. Steven was thinking that maybe the guest was not feeling well then he went up to check on her, the guest told him that she’s feeling sick and maybe having a fever, but don’t know how to get to the hospital, neither to communicate with the Chinese doctors. Then Steven suggested that he can take her to the hospital and see a doctor, he could be the translator as well. The guest was touched and overwhelmed to say thank you. Then later that night at around 11:00pm, he took a taxi with the guest to go to hospital, and accompanied the guest back to make sure she was fine till 1:30am.

Steven loves working at Marriott because he loves serving guests and see smile and good surprise on their faces. Steven will continue his good work and pursue excellence is his ultimate goal.

来自首尔丽思卡尔顿酒店的终生难忘的结婚纪念日——A Memorable Wedding Anniversary of The Ritz-Carlton, Seoul




Jace Kim, Club Lounge agent was pleased to see a familiar face in the lounge. It was a guest she had met not long before in the lobby. This time the guest was holding a beautiful bunch of roses as well as a card. He said he had to ask Jace a favor, which was to look after the flowers and card for around 20 minutes. Through communication, Jace learned that this day was his 15th wedding anniversary.

Jace decided to prepare a special moment for this guest and his wife. With only 20 minutes, she swung into action. Firstly, she contacted Hyun-ho Lim from pastry, and asked him to prepare a beautiful cake. Her colleague, Sally Park, got together a bottle of champagne, fruit, cookies and chocolates. With Hyun-ho Lim's help, Jace wrote the couple a congratulatory message on a heart-shaped piece of white chocolate. The couple arrived at the lounge shortly afterwards and were astonished to see the specially prepared table. It was totally unexpected for both of them! They were considerably moved by the event that the Ladies at the Ritz-Carlton, Seoul had prepared for them in the space of just 20 minutes.

The wife thanked her husband and the Club Lounge staff profusely. The husband explained how touched he was the way the staff prepared the happy moment in such an instant, just as if preparing for their own anniversary. What’s important, they had been to several hotels, they said, but The Ritz-Carlton, Seoul, was special in that it always provided unforgettable experiences. They said they wanted to spend all of their future wedding anniversaries at The Ritz-Carlton.

Jace received the following email after the couple’s departure: “Thank you Jace. Your adorable smile and your lovely efforts made our anniversary special. It will always be remembered. Thank you for all your help!!!! You are the best. Thank you so much.”

First class to Jace, for anticipating guests’ unexpressed wishes and creating Ritz-Carlton guest for life!

我的丽思卡尔顿成长之旅 —— My Career Journey at The Ritz-Carlton

来自天津丽思卡尔顿酒店的职业发展故事 —— A Career Story from The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin






I’m Patrick, Executive Pastry Chef of The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin. My Ritz-Carlton career journey started with The Ritz Carlton, Millenia Singapore as pastry commis in 2000. By the end of 2002, I had the chance to transfer to The Ritz Carlton, Reynold Plantation in USA where I was later promoted as Pastry Sous Chef. Later in 2003, I was again transferred to The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong as Pastry Sous Chef. In 2006, I rejoined the company as an opening team member of the Bulgari Hotel & Resort, Bali.  In 2010, I was transferred to The Ritz Carlton, Shanghai Pudong as an opening team member in the position of Executive Pastry Chef. Two years later in 2012, I was transferred to The Ritz Carlton, Tianjin as yet another opening team member. After 11 years with the company, I feel glad and fortunate to have all the opportunities and challenges to grow with the Ritz Carlton.

I am truly inspired by the Gold Standards, foundation of our Company. It takes a lot of time to digest and understand the Gold Standards, yet they are my guiding principles. I keep reminding myself to practice them as an employee at work and as a person with my friends and family. They help me continuously learn and grow with the company.

The “Happiest Moment” for me is the fact that I always think “POSITIVE” when I am faced with challenging and difficult situation. Besides, I know I am working with good team members who are hard-working, supportive and keep motivating each other.

In my manager’s opinion, I’m a great leader who is very professional and open- minded on new projects. What’s important, he said that my reputation as a Pastry Chef was very well known in Asia and I was the one that paid much attention to quality at work and that was why he felt proud to work with me.

10月12日,俄语宾客关系主管Alex Zubanov 在和来自俄罗斯的客人Mr. Michael Heimhilcher在沟通中无意得知他太太Ms. Spielauer 特别喜欢鲜花和各类植物。说者无心,听者有意,Alex 立刻开始思考如何给Ms. Spielauer带来惊喜——安排一次在马丁伯伯小花园的神奇之旅将是最好的选择。

Alex立即和园林经理Nigel Lin分享了这一想法,Nigel 十分赞同并主动提出亲自带领客人参观马丁伯伯小花园,以利于更详尽地向Ms. Spielauer介绍各种植物。然而完美的计划出现了第一个困难,Nigel不会说英文和俄语,和Alex,客人都存在着语言沟通障碍。但是Alex没有放弃,立即开始到其他部门寻找了解植物且英语较好的员工。别墅管家Violet充满热情地加入了这个团队,将Nigel的中文介绍翻译成英语,再由Alex翻译成俄语和客人沟通。


Mr. Michael Heimhilcher和Ms. Spielauer都非常感动,不禁感叹:金茂三亚丽思卡尔顿酒店不仅提供美好的假期,Alex, Nigel和Violet更是创造了一段尊享极致的体验,这张CD和回忆也将伴随他们一生。

Alex, Nigel, Violet 是一流的,他们预见了客人未表达的需求和愿望,为客人创造了独特的、终生难忘的回忆。


On Oct 12, Alex Zubanov learnt from Mr. Michael Heimhilcher that his wife Ms. Spielauer liked flowers and plants very much when he escorted them to the room. Alex decided to turn it into something special for this couple. Alex thought creatively and figured out a brilliant plan: to organize a meaningful educational tour in our “Uncle Martin’s Secret Garden” for Ms.Spielauer. Alex then spoke to Landscape Manager Nigel who happily agreed with the idea.

It sounded like a perfect plan, but Nigel didn’t speak any English, and Alex couldn’t speak Chinese as well! Alex didn’t give up the plan, but actively seek help from Live Leader Violet Li – to translate Chinese into English. Alex translated English into Russian for them. During the tour, Alex took pictures of the flowers and plants and work with Violet together to make a PPT with Chinese & English name of the plants that were shown to Ms Spielauer. Graphic Designer Will Li copied the PPT to a CD as a meaningful souvenir presented to the guests. Ms.Spielauer was very touched and said that she really had great time at our resort, and this CD allowed her to keep the beautiful memories and spectacular experience all the way home.

First class to Alex, Nigel, Violet and Will who went beyond the call of duty to create a WOW factor for our guests.
