After earning a hotel management degree in Ireland, Coveney began his career in food and beverage followed by a stint in marketing. In 2003, he joined Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts as Sales Manager for the former Four Seasons hotel in Dublin.

Shortly thereafter, Coveney jumped at an opportunity to be the pre-opening resort manager of a golf resort near his hometown in Ireland but soon returned to a new beginning at Four Seasons in Dublin, to join the front desk management team and later serve as Director of Rooms.

An optimist at heart, Coveney believes in the power of people working together toward a common goal, yet recognises the importance of being able to shift gears when needs arise. He likes to spend as much “Golden Time” as possible, personally assisting guests to ensure their experience is special and bespoke and is keen on inspiring his team at Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh to do the same.

Having recently moved from Sydney to Riyadh with his family, Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh looks forward to seeing Coveney bring his talent, extensive experience and lively enthusiasm to his new role.

Travelers will also have access to exclusive experiences available only to Four Seasons Jet passengers.

Reservations aboard the new Four Seasons Jet are currently open for the following trips:

  • Around the World, February 2015 – Beginning in Los Angeles and concluding with a celebratory dinner in London, this 24-day, 9-destination journey explores dynamic cities, exotic islands, architectural wonders and awe-inspiring natural environments.

  • Backstage with the Arts, April 2015 – In the company of like-minded travellers who share a passion for the arts, guests will visit six cities and spend 16 indulgent days filled with backstage visits to Europe’s most stunning museums, outstanding performances at Teatro alla Scala in Milan and the Estates Theatre in Prague, exquisite dinners and a private gala in the Pavlovsk Palace outside St. Petersburg.
  • Around the World, August 2015 – Epic is the word to describe this globe-circling expedition through nine destinations, including stays in three of the newest Four Seasons hotels, plus the brand’s very first safari lodge in the Serengeti.  From the Forbidden City in Beijing to the medina in Marrakech, the pristine waters of the Maldives to the excitement of the world’s largest fish market in Tokyo and a final, glittering dinner in New York, it will be 24 days no one will ever forget.

Each journey includes air travel and ground transportation, planned excursions, all meals throughout the trip and luxurious accommodations exclusively at Four Seasons.

The decision to offer one-of-a-kind trips aboard a custom-designed Four Seasons Jet reflects an understanding of our guests’ evolving needs and preferences,” continues Helstab. “It recognizes their desire to pair adventure and discovery with the luxury of a fully immersive Four Seasons experience.”
