Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort Announces Carla Abelleyra as Bushman’s Restaurant Manager

Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort is delighted to welcome Carla Abelleyra as the new restaurant manager at Bushman’s Restaurant and Bar. Arriving to lead an established team at the upscale Australian steakhouse, Carla brings more than a decade of experience and education in luxury hospitality and restaurant management.

Joining the Anantara family for the first time, Carla began her journey in 2016 after completing a degree in International Hotel Management at Anáhuac University in her home country of Mexico. In 2017, she enrolled at the International University of Monaco and gained a postgraduate degree in Luxury Hospitality & Event Management. While in Monaco, Carla grasped the opportunity to gain experience working under the French “Chef of the Century” Joël Robuchon, who earned 31 Michelin stars during his career.

After demonstrating exemplary talent and dedication in Monaco, Carla relocated to Dubai as part of the pre-opening team for L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in 2020. Beginning as Head Waiter, Carla was quickly promoted, before becoming Outlet Manager at SLS Dubai Hotel & Residences in 2021. In January 2023, Carla proved herself a valuable member of the pre-opening team for Above Eleven at Marriott Resort Palm Jumeirah. She joins Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort with a well-deserved reputation for excellence and a passion for delivering peerless guest experiences.

She brings the experience and knowledge to help our outstanding Bushman’s team deliver consistently at the very highest level,” Maurice Fitzgerald, Director of Food & Beverage, Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort.

“Since I first encountered the hospitality trade working long summers in restaurants close to my home in Mexico, I have been fascinated by the gastronomy of cultures from all around the world. I’m privileged to have gained wider experience, first in Monaco and now in Dubai, and I am beyond excited to lead a team showcasing the distinctive and delicious cuisine of Australia for Anantara at Bushman’s,” Carla Abelleyra, Bushman’s Restaurant Manager, Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort.

Carla brings a management style which places focus on the nurturing and growth of talented individuals to develop a culture of consummate service, seamless teamwork and unwavering commitment.
