A seasoned hotelier who honed his skills in the field of front Office Operations from different international hotel chains in the country, Mr. Benhur Caballes is Waterfront Airport Hotel and Casino‘s new Hotel Manager.
He started his career in the hospitality industry at the former Westin Philippine Plaza. Found his passion in this business, he then joined Makati Shangri-La Hotel in 1996. Driven by his vision to excel, he filled in several positions in Front Office – Guest Services Associate, Service Leader and Assistant Front Office Manager. In 2007, he joined Alegre Beach Resort as Front Office Manager. During his short stint in the hotel resort, he played a vital role in improving the hotel room’s performance in terms of revenue.
Downpour of opportunities came after he joined Waterfront Manila Pavilion Hotel as Front Office Manager in 2006. His exceptional performance paved way to appoint him as Hotel Manager of GHotel Manila by Waterfront. An advocate of innovation, Mr. Caballes led and represented the boutique hotel for three years, uplifting the services and incorporating the Waterfront standards to provide the best hotel experience to guests and patrons.
Benhur, as he is fondly known, enchanced his hotel management skills when he took up Managerial Core Competencies Program at Les Roches Ji Jiang International Hotel Management College in China.
He was appointed Resident Manager of Waterfront Manila Pavillion Hotel in April 2013, prior joining the Waterfront Mactan family.
“We tailor fit to your needs. With service and commitment, we provide memorable moments to our patrons and guests,” Benhur Caballes.
With his notable attributes and leadership style, Waterfront Airport Hotel and Casino will surely remain as one of the premier business hotels in the island.
