Both set out on a journey of self-discovery and growth. In their rights and courage of convictions, they actualized their dream to evolve in the hospitality sector.
A turning point awaited them out of life circumstances, destiny or fate - you name it. The universe was conspiring to make the talented duo cross paths at Le Méridien Bora Bora.
Never did they talk before, let alone knew the existence of whomsoever; they were impressed by the commendable work ethics of each other.
The story harkens back to the times Nicolas was appointed as Food and Beverages Manager at the Marriott subsidiary from April 2019 to June 2020. He narrates that he was filled in regularly upon Luvesh, a student from his former alma mater interning at the hotel reception since December 2019. The latter admittedly donned a distinct composure always.
They would collaborate for a little more than four months till COVID-19 had to create quite an uproar, says Luvesh.
Luvesh explains that his internship was cut short in April 2020. It was only upon his return to the island in August 2020, he would work for Splash and Fun to validate his final year BA studies.
He adds that thanks to Vatel he not only chanced upon meeting someone as high-principled and remarkable as Nicolas. He also got to benefit from learning on-the-job sessions from St Regis, Heritage Le Telfair and Hotel Pavillion Henry IV (Paris, France).
Meanwhile, ahead of their impending encounter, Nicolas would move back to his home country and land the job title of Director at the Hotel Suite Home (part of VOS Hotels, France). He would require the collaboration of a dedicated and dynamic workforce to assist him during the course of his tenure.
He would thence appeal via the "Best of Vatel Facebook page" dedicated to former/ current students to recruit someone of calibre and action in the line of hotels – Hotel Suite Home (France) and this no doubt fitted the bill with Luvesh for he was totally in sync with Nicolas’ way of working.
Fate finally came in full circle a month ago when Luvesh earned himself yet another internship in the company of his idol, he says. He is now looking forward to cumulating several months of working experience till one day upon completion of his studies, he looks forward to reuniting with the Vatelian (title of alum) spirit through Nicolas.
