Bye bye to Jason Kruse, GM of Casa del Mar

by Mark

Mark: 5 March 2010

We are sad to loose Jason – who managed to make the Casa del Mar the No ONE Resort on Langkawi – as voted by the Trip Advisor – and has taken up a lot of responsibility for Langkawi in many individual voluntary actions.

He also contributed the “Langkawi Destination Manual” to our Langkawi Gazette, one of the best, if not THE best put-together about Langkawi for the interested visitor.

We wish him all the best in his new challenge on the Maldives and also want to wish his successor, Tom, a good start in Langkawi. Welcome Tom !

Here is Jason’s own statement:

Jason Kruse:

Out with the old and in with the new

The time has come for us to say goodbye as Victoria & I are sadly off to our next challenge in the Maldives. We have enjoyed our 2 1/2 years here at Casa del Mar and have very fond memories of our time here.

However rest assured that you will be in very good hands with Tom Blachere coming in as the new General Manager and I am sure you will make him feel as welcome as I have been. Tom comes with 15 years of hospitality experience and has recently been the Resort Manager of Rihiveli in the Maldives and the Operations Manager at Hard Rock Penang. Tom commences on the 3rd March 2010.

Please feel free to contact him on

Jason Kruse, 17th Feb 2010
