You did read that right! Private Caribbean island—quite possibly the most beautiful combination of words in the English language, and quite possibly your new home for at least a year. The gig's yours if hospitality and operations are second nature to you.
Roatania is a real estate startup, founded by 4 partners with backgrounds in architecture
and planning, project management and legal relations. Roatania works on development
and management projects in LATAM and the Caribbean. We have been developing a private Caribbean island, including an 8-bedroom vacation home, and set it up for rent on Airbnb, Tripadvisor, and our own online reservation system.
We're looking for a hospitality manager for a private island in the Western Caribbean. As someone with international hospitality experience and an adventurous streak, you'd be the one managing all property operations. As a part of our team, you'd be helping us grow the product into a professional hospitality/resort operation.
Our island is located directly on the second largest barrier reef in the world, with endless beautiful snorkeling and diving sites directly off the island. We also have an original 300-year-old pirate fort (back from when 600 pirates used to hide on the island, hence the odd situation that we do find old bottles and canon balls sometimes), as well as three different white sand beaches, a lovely mangrove canal, and a 700m runway (in case you have a pilot license)—all right here on the island.
Once you've decided to take the plunge—and we recommend you do—we'd like you to stay with us in paradise for at least one year.
