Matara Murphy is the new Training and Development Manager of Sandals Grande Antigua


Murphy began her Sandals journey as a Concierge Agent with Club Sandals. After just one year with the company, she was promoted to Concierge Supervisor. Murphy, who describes hospitality as her passion, said it has always been her ambition to become an ambassador for the award-winning brand.

Whilst working, she pursued an Associates Degree in Hospitality Management at the Antigua and Barbuda Hospitality Training Institute (ABHTI) from which she graduated with Highest Honours.

She completed her Bachelor’s Degree at Monroe College St Lucia on a scholarship from Sandals Corporate University, and while in college completed a 16-month internship as a Training Assistant at Sandals Halcyon Beach St Lucia. Murphy was later moved to Grenada to assist with Human Resource & Training during the opening of the new Sandals La Source.

In 2014 she returned to Antigua as Training Manager at the Grand Pineapple Beach resort, which is owned by Sandals Resorts International, and in 2015 returned to her home property Sandals Grande Antigua as Training and Development Manager.
