Christian Buggelsheim Returns to Further Elevate Guests' Experience at the Venice Raytour Hotel

Christian Buggelsheim Returns to the Venice Raytour Hotel

The Venice Raytour Hotel Shenzhen in OCT has appointed Mr. Christian Buggelsheim as their new General Manager and is now looking forward to some exciting changes to their guest experience. The Venice Raytour Hotel Shenzhen is the only Italian themed hotel in all of Shenzhen offering its guests a unique and memorable experience. It does this by providing an Italian ambiance that shows in both the exterior as well as the interior of the hotel. The staff also takes part in the ambiance by offering Italian greetings to their guests as well as dressing the part with traditional Italian attire. With amazing bars, restaurants and cafes along with excellent guest service, the hotel is still looking to build upon the things they are doing well in order to better perfect their overall guest experience. That said, Mr. Buggelsheim who has over 28 years of hospitality experience is the perfect candidate for the job.

A Good History with Raytour

Mr. Buggelsheim is no stranger to the Venice Raytour Hotel Shenzhen. He and hotel first met each other in 2006. This was the beginning of his hospitality career in China and the start of what would be a life changing experience for him. Before working at the Venice Raytour Hotel, Mr. Buggelsheim traveled the world building his experience and had yet to really settle in a specific country. This all changed while working at the Venice Raytour Hotel where he later met his wife at the hotel bar. He then started a family in Shenzhen and worked for the Venice Raytour Hotel for six years (from 2006-2012).

After working for the Venice Raytour Hotel, Mr. Buggelsheim would seek to broaden his horizons. He did this by traveling to other parts of China with many major hotel brands and was the General Manager in pre-opening projects in Fuzhou, Tianjin and Chengdu. He worked hard and gained extensive experience in this six year period, only to return to his home in Shenzhen bringing that experience back to the Venice Raytour Hotel. With new knowledge and experience, he is now excited to bring a new enhanced guest experience to the Venice Raytour Hotel Shenzhen.

Elevating the Venice Raytour Hotel Shenzhen Experience

The Venice Raytour Hotel has already begun enhancing its dining experience with the finished renovation of the V Palace, which was once one of the most popular bars in Shenzhen under the name of V Bar. Mr. Buggelsheim is looking at bringing even more of a positive change to the restaurants, bars, and cafes inside of the Venice Raytour Hotel through enhanced menus, renovations, and marketing campaigns geared at reaching the local community instead of just in-hotel guests.

Marco's Chinese Restaurant
There are three restaurants inside the Venice Raytour Hotel including an Italian restaurant named “Blue”. Blue has been a popular and great addition to the Venice Raytour Hotel offering authentic Italian dishes inside of a beautiful and classy venue. Mr. Buggelsheim expects to elevate the experience at Blue by offering great home-style Italian dishes at more affordable prices allowing for more guests to try the “Blue experience.” Marco’s, the Venice Raytour Hotel’s Chinese restaurant, is another high-end dining experience that combines traditional Cantonese and Hunan cuisine. This restaurant will also be experiencing an elevated change and a stronger marketing push to introduce its diverse Chinese menu to the public.

Blue Italian Restaurant 

In any setting, if an employee feels as though their job opportunities will never progress further, it is very easy for them to become a bit stagnant in their day-to-day duties. Mr. Buggelsheim understands this and knows above renovations and marketing the biggest change that a hotel can offer its guests is the staff-guest interaction. There are over 500 employees at the Venice Raytour Hotel and Mr. Buggelsheim wants each of them to know that they have an opportunity to grow and become leaders. He is doing this by offering a leadership program that allows employees to learn new management and leadership skills. This not only improves the overall motivation of the staff but increases their performance as well.  

These are just a few of the ways that Mr. Buggelsheim plans on increasing the standards of the guest experience at the Venice Raytour Hotel. With over 28 years of experience, he is now better equipped to serve the Venice Raytour Hotel and to bring new ideas that will improve the overall hotel experience. Additionally, Mr. Buggelsheim has also been promoted to vice president of the OCT International Hotel Management Group. He gives thanks to the Venice Raytour Hotel for being the stepping-stone in his career in China that has helped to mold him into the leader he is today.
