Andrew Thomas

Sea World Resort
Gold Coast

The opportunity to experience life in numerous countries whilst he was growing up provided the motivation for Andrew to pursue a career in hospitality. Andrew was born in India and was educated in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania followed by Beijing, China where he completed his final two years of high school. Moving countries provided the opportunity for Andrew to become proficient in multiple languages, his strongest being English, French, Swahili and Malayalam.

Following high school, another move saw Andrew commence hospitality studies in The Hague, Netherlands and, after two years, he decided he was keen for a ‘change of scenery’. His father suggested the Gold Coast region as it had the ideal combination of a good university and great weather which is all the convincing Andrew needed to make the move.

In 2015, Andrew moved to the Gold Coast and undertook a Bachelor of International Tourism and Hotel Management at Griffith University. Since graduating he has developed his hospitality experience in hotels starting with his first role in Guest Services at The Mantra Southport Sharks. He then spent three years with the W Brisbane in a range of roles including Night Audit and Welcome Agent before being promoted to Night Supervisor.

Returning to the Gold Coast in 2021, Andrew is now the Night Manager at the Sea World Resort where he is responsible for all overnight hotel operations focusing on front office, night audit, hotel safety/security and overseeing the ‘end of day’ operational functions.
