Leelavathi began her housekeeping career in the Middle East in 2005 as a Housekeeping Supervisor at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa after earning a diploma in Hotel Management & Catering Technology. Her extensive experience and dedication to her work have propelled her to the position of Complex Director of Housekeeping after serving in a variety of roles at Marriott properties.
One of her most notable recent accomplishments was the successful opening of Aloft/Element Almina, Aloft/Element Airport,and the reopening of LeMeridien Fairway after a soft renovation, with the highest levels of Associate Engagement achieved in 2021.
Leelavathi is a firm believer that in order to provide the highest level of health and safety, procedures for various cleaning processes must be updated on a regular basis. With new information arriving on a daily basis during the pandemic,her team concentrated on updating hospitality cleanliness standards,norms,and behaviours to reduce risk and improve safety for both consumers and staff. As a result, ongoing training is critical,especially since there are still many challenges to overcome with all of the new variants emerging.
