Featured Partnership

  • Les Roches

    Les Roches is a co-educational school offering higher education programs that is accredited by the Commission on Institutes of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Les Roches provides instruction in English to students of any race, nationality, sex, color, religion or creed who have successfully completed a full secondary school program.

    We expose our students to a broad range of courses covering the inter-related areas of the hospitality industry, by means of theoretical and practical work within the School and by regular periods of internship in recognized hotels, restaurants or related institutions. Students’ intellectual abilities are further developed through the general education component of the undergraduate programs.

    Our objective is to train and educate students to a level of all round competence, in the varied operations of the hospitality industry. Graduates of Les Roches, having developed competence in a range of technical, organizational and administrative skills, will be able to progress through the ranks of the management hierarchy.

    We develop students’ abilities to initiate and manage change by confronting them with contemporary issues and challenges that the industry faces today. The international environment at the School promotes awareness and understanding of national and cultural differences and encourages students to work together in a team to improve inter-personal skills. Graduates of Les Roches may therefore embark upon their careers with confidence, armed with knowledge, basic experience and inter-personal skills which allow them to successfully face career challenges.

    Front Office Trainee, Eastern Mangroves Hotel and Spa by Anantara. 

    Postgraduate Intensive Diploma in International Hotel Management, Les Roches Marbella International School of Hotel Management, Spain

    This internship is part of my Postgraduate Diploma degree which started in October. I explored many hotels around the world to apply for internship because I love traveling and meeting new people from different cultures. However, I had a very specific idea about the hotel that I wanted to be working in and that was a high quality, 5-star hotel brand. After some time, I finally decided to do my internship at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel and Spa by Anantara. The reason I chose this hotel was both for the location and the company itself. I wanted to experience the culture and life at the Emirates but also, there were other students from my school that completed their internship in this hotel who had positive experiences that made me me want to experience it myself. 

    During my internship, I will go through all the stations of the Front Office Department and will learn how it operates from various aspects (Guest Relations, Guest Service Center, Concierge, Executive Lounge Butler, and Reception). Each station has unique tasks and I get all the guidance that I need from my colleagues. During Orientation, I gained more knowledge about the Anantara brand. I really liked that this brand is based on offering the best hospitality experience without expecting anything in return. It is authentic and it matches the way I see hospitality. Moreover, it is not only reflected in the interaction among team members and guests but also among the team members in the workplace. Everyone I met in the hotel is friendly and extremely helpful.
