A self-described avid learner of world cultures, with an insatiable thirst for engaging with the arts and creative ideas of our times, Sebastien Carre’s journey continues to be fulfilled at each stop of his professional journey.

Born in Lyon, France, with a passion for food and wine at the onset, he is hailing from a long line of chefs and architects. He originally wanted to cook, to build beautiful things, and mostly to travel for the rest of his life. This has set his course for a hospitality journey on four continents, starting with Palace hotels on the French Riviera, onto London, Seattle, San Francisco, Tahiti, Mauritius and Washington, in independent, boutique, or branded luxury hotels, as well as South Pacific, Red Sea and Indian Ocean island destinations.

Carre got his start with Four Seasons in 2003, leading a complete renovation and repositioning of Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC, which became the first and only Forbes Five-Star hotel in the US nation’s capital - a defining accolade that it has held ever since. As he journeyed on, he was blessed to spend time in some of the company’s most treasured resort locations, perfectly preparing him for his return to resort life with his appointment in Mauritius.

As part of his remit as Regional Vice President, Carre also oversees Four Seasons Resort Seychelles and Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island. Following his time in Johannesburg and former regional oversight of Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, Carre is particularly passionate about the opportunities within the African region and is confident that through the launch of Four Seasons Safari and Islands Collection, Africa, many guests will leap at the chance to extend their adventures in this part of the world through the guidance and assurance afforded by the expanding Four Seasons presence. “There is a universal appeal to Africa and its raw, mesmerising beauty. From bucket list safari adventures of witnessing the great migration in the Serengeti to vibrant cityscapes and spectacular island retreats, there is so much to discover. Four Seasons Safari and Islands Collection, Africa is an opportunity for guests to make the most of their time in the region, whether staying in one of our remarkable properties alone or extending to the wider continent. Our expert reservations team are able to tailor the experience to each guest to help create a once-in-a-lifetime African adventure.”

With a hospitality career spanning multiple continents over three decades, Sebastien Carre’s global address history brims with the fondest of memories, with a particular highlight being the year spent in Mauritius, back in 1999.  After the destination’s border closure due to the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Carre counts himself incredibly lucky to have returend to Mauritius, this time in the capacity of Regional Vice President with Four Seasons and with direct responsibility for the brand’s Resort sanctuary on the picturesque east coast.

“When arriving to Mauritius, one is greeted by a smile coming from the heart,” says Carre, “It’s a true, genuine warmth that is found in abundance across the island and that is quite rightly known the world over for captivating the hearts of many. It is incredible to see the demand from those seeking to discover the destination, not to mention those longing to return.”

Joining Mauritius from his most recent tenure in Johannesburg, where he launched the iconic rebrand of Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff into the market, Carre takes oversight of the extensive culinary renovations that have been taking place in the Resort during the closure, namely the addition of a buzzing bar and the structural expansion and redesign of Bambou beachfront restaurant. “The timeliness of these enhancements matches perfectly with the relaunch of the destination as we lshowcase a new level of variety in the Resort’s culinary and bar offerings. We seek to provide experiences that truly anchor guests in the distinctiveness of the destination, while presenting concepts that are new and exciting: it remains Mauritius, but not as it has been seen before and we love sharing these enhancements with our guests.”
