Noble House Hotels & Resorts, a hotel ownership and management company with a portfolio of 18 properties, appointed Heinrich Morio as GM of the Ocean Key Resort & Spa in Key West, Fla.
Morio rejoins Noble House Hotels & Resorts from his most recent appointment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where he functioned as chief hospitality advisor to the Office of Royal Private Affairs. A dual U.S. and German national, Morio draws from a hospitality career spanning more than 40 years of experience in luxury hotels and resorts, gaining international expertise at properties including the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Hamburg, Hotel Plaza Athenee in New York, The Peninsula in Beverly Hills and Turnberry Isle in South Florida.
Morio later served as GM to properties include The Ocean Club on Paradise Island in The Bahamas, Little Palm Island Resort & Spa in the Florida Keys and One&Only Le Touessrok in Mauritius—as well as ultra-luxury properties throughout the United Arab Emirates, including the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Palazzo Versace Dubai and the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah in Dubai.
Morio is a graduate of Florida International University. He is accompanied by his wife, Stephanie, and is a proud father of two adult children, Matthew and Margaux, who live in Dubai and New Jersey, respectively.
The Ocean Key Resort & Spa is located between Key West Harbor and Mallory Square. The property offers 100 rooms and suites, the Hot Tin Roof restaurant, the Sunset Pier outdoor bar and the SpaTerre.
