Originally from Épinal, Vosges, France, Guibre has more than 20 years of experience in the luxury hotel industry. He graduated from the Cours Hôtelier de Besançon in Besançon, France, and from the Gakken GEM International School in Tokyo. After graduating from the language course, I worked in cities such as Paris and Casablanca, Morocco, in various positions including reception, sales, housekeeping, and sales and marketing.
Before joining Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto, he was the general manager of Hotel du Louvre by Hyatt, also known as a historic building in Paris. For his outstanding achievements, he was selected as General Manager of the Year at the Jay A. Pritzker Awards.
Guibre, whose parents were both hoteliers, grew up in Club Med resorts around the world, from Paris to New Caledonia, and his siblings also chose a career as a hotelier, making them “hospitality at heart” family”. He is curious, open-minded, and most of all, loving. This is her source of motivation.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking Asian food, playing board games, and picking mushrooms with my husband and four children.
It is an honor to be appointed General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto. This position is something I’ve dreamed of for a long time because it’s the perfect blend of “Japan” and “luxury hospitality” that I’ve always been passionate about. I am very happy to take on a great challenge in such a special place. As always, Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto will continue to strive to be part of the community and work together as a team to establish itself as the premier luxury hotel brand in Kyoto.
