Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta welcomes Maximillian Schillik as new Director of Rooms. Making the move from Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa, Maximillian brings an exciting international flair to the hotel and is looking forward to further elevating the guest experience at this vibrant urban retreat.

Maximillian will oversee several departments, including Concierge, Front Office, Housekeeping and Spa. His ultimate vision is to ensure a sublime guest experience. In addition to elevating the guest journey at Four Seasons, Maximillian plans to implement sustainability initiatives aimed at eliminating the use of single-use plastic. As a leader, he places enormous importance on his team's happiness, striving to make the workplace environment as enjoyable and growth-orientation as possible.

His true passion and journey in hospitality started when he was a management trainee at Seehotel Überfahrt in Bavaria. In 2011, he joined a luxury hotel brand and steadily climbed the ranks, moving from front office supervisor in Munich to managerial roles across China, Germany and Myanmar. In 2019, he joined the Four Seasons family in the Maldives, coming on board as Director of Rooms.

Having spent much of his professional life abroad, Maximilian views the experience as hugely educational and humbling. “I begin by learning from my host country, then think about what I can offer to make things just a little bit better. If we can merge the qualities of our cultures, we can get the best of both worlds,” he explains, noting his own personal balance between warmth and efficiency. This open-minded approach has allowed him to learn new perspectives and widen his horizons vastly over the past several years.

When asked what he enjoys most about his job, he says, “The satisfaction of making people smile on a daily basis is incomparable. We get to create joy, inspire delight and help to build new memories for our guests.”
